Rubio's Statement on Obama's Power Grab

Not a fan.

There is broad support for the idea that we should figure out a way to help kids who are undocumented through no fault of their own, but there is also broad consensus that it should be done in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future. This is a difficult balance to strike, one that this new policy, imposed by executive order, will make harder to achieve in the long run.

Today’s announcement will be welcome news for many of these kids desperate for an answer, but it is a short term answer to a long term problem. And by once again ignoring the Constitution and going around Congress, this short term policy will make it harder to find a balanced and responsible long term one.

On Brett Baier, Stephen Hayes advanced these facts: Rubio's about to release a book next week and will be all over the media, and Rubio's been working with Congressmen on some sort of a measure to deal with the children of illegals. Further, Obama has actually instructed his party to not deal with Rubio on the matter.

His conclusion is that Obama did this for fear that Rubio could actually put together some kind of a deal, and he couldn't have that.

So he violated his oath to defend the Constitution. Same shit, different day.
