I accept Paul Ryan's challenge

| No Comments

Rep. Paul Ryan says he will debate anyone who calls the Schumer-Rubio bill "amnesty." I accept his challenge, and will be happy to debate him at the time and place of his choosing (though I'm booked on June 27 and 28). Does Ryan realize the "path-to-citizenship" provisions he thinks preclude an appellation of "amnesty" are riddled with loopholes and opportunities for executive-branch waivers? If he thinks that the Obama Administration DHS is not going to turn this proposed law into de facto amnesty, he is getting rolled by Senator Schumer; if he's aware of it, he's selling out conservative principles for cynical reasons that are almost certainly political miscalculations.
