Megyn: Why Is It OK For President to Do What He Wants on Immigration?
Megyn Kelly tonight took on Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) over executive action on illegal immigration.
Cuellar argued that past presidents have allowed a reprieve on deportations in the past, but Kelly countered that there has been “nothing anywhere near this size and scope" before.
Cuellar said that the scope of an executive order doesn’t matter. Still, he said he prefers a bipartisan legislative approach, like Democrats and President Reagan did in 1986.
“I support your willingness to engage in a bipartisan process […] but when the bipartisan doesn’t work out in your favor – when it plays out honestly and the votes just aren’t there for your side – why is it OK for the executive to step in and say, ‘I’m doing what I want, and I really don’t give a fig about what half of the House of Representatives wants or doesn’t want or for that matter what half of the American people want or [don’t] want?’” Kelly questioned.
