Now that a federal judge
has held Obama's illegal executive amnesty
unconstitutional, perhaps U.S. senators will remember that they swore
to uphold the Constitution, too.
Back when they needed our votes before the last election, Republicans
were hairy-chested warriors, vowing to block Obama's unconstitutional
"executive amnesty" -- if only voters gave them a Senate majority. The
resulting Republican landslide suggested some opposition to amnesty.
Heading into the election, college professor Dave Brat took out the
sitting House majority leader and amnesty supporter Eric Cantor in a
primary, despite being outspent 40-1. It was the greatest upset in
history since the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" at the Lake Placid Olympics:
Never before has a House majority leader been defeated in a primary.
And Brat did it by an astonishing 55.5 percent to 45.5 percent.
Again, the voters seemed to be expressing disquiet with amnesty.
After that, even amnesty-supporting Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was
denouncing Obama's executive amnesty. "If the president were to do
that," he said, "and we have a Republican majority in the United States
Senate, why, we have a number of options that we don't now have to
remind him to read Article I of the Constitution."
Poll after poll showed Americans ranking illegal immigration as the No.
1 most important problem facing the nation. We haven't changed our
minds. Last week, an Associated Press-Gfk poll showed that Obama's
single most unpopular policy is his position on illegal immigration.
In other words, Obamacare is more popular than amnesty. That's like
losing a popularity contest to Ted Bundy.
Ms. Ann Coulter doesn't really break any new ground here—wait.
There is one thing. I didn't know that "Never before has a House majority leader
(Eric Cantor) been defeated in a primary."
