What stands about Jeb's immigration rhetoric is that he sounds about 100x more likely to make it his top priority if he wins

@BenjySarlin @MarkSKrikorian at what point is Jeb going to wake up & realize that the GOP base doesn't want amnesty?

.@topgun2448: as an atty, you should know Krikorian isn't doing his job. We have to do the job he refuses to do. Ask Jeb questions, Rick.

Wink, wink. Cruz says he won't touch legalization issue until border secure, then notes he didn't block work permits in his Sen. amendments
Brian Phillips's avatar
From @RealBPhil
.@BenjySarlin His point was that he wanted to show that Dems won't allow any reform without pathway to citizenship. It worked.

@RealBPhil So...he would not support work permits for undocumented immigrants and didn't then?
Brian Phillips's avatar
From @RealBPhil
.@BenjySarlin the point is, his amendment had nothing to do with that issue
Benjy Sarlin's avatar
From @BenjySarlin
@RealBPhil Okay so to be 100% clear: If his amendment succeeded, he still would not have supported work permits for existing undocumented?

.@BenjySarlin 100% clear: Cruz's amendment had nothing to do with that issue.

.@RealBPhil @BenjySarlin Don't be silly. Cruz boasted to @NYT that his amendment "did not change the underlying work permit from" Gang of 8

From @RealBPhil
.@kausmickey @BenjySarlin in order to isolate Dems insistence that citizenship be part of any reform. And that's what it did.

.@RealBPhil: Cruz's then-spokesperson refused to answer this 2012 amnesty question: http://24ahead.com/n/11062 Do you have the guts?

.@kausmickey Did you post the right video? Bc the one you link to absolutely proves my point that his amdt only dealt w/ citizenship issue

GOP aide says Thursday vote likely for bill disapproving/blocking exec action -- which the Dem Senate will promptly kill, making it useless
Mark Krikorian's avatar
From @MarkSKrikorian
.@BenjySarlin It's not useless for the House (& in January the Senate) to go on the record as rejecting Obama's decrees as usurpations

@BenjySarlin @MarkSKrikorian If #GOP is letting Ted Yoho write the Bill, we all know it's simple legislative gesticulation.

.@susanpai: your biggest helpers are do-nothing r/w leaders like @MarkSKrikorian, @AnnCoulter, and @NumbersUSA. You should thank them.
