Mark Steyn and Hugh Hewitt talk about the news of the day, including “immigration reform” (audio):
MARK STEYN: No, and the problem here isn’t [John Boehner’s] representatives and the members of his caucus. The problem here is the Republican base. The problem here is in fact the American base, who throughout the country have to live with the hard consequences of vast, illegal, low-skilled, transformative immigration, which has all kinds of implications for school budgets and hospital emergency rooms.
And unless life has been as good to you as it has been to John Boehner and to the political class, you’re at the sharp end of what for the political class in this country is mainly a problem of pool boys and the nice ladies who leave the chocolate on the bed in your hotel room in the evening…
HH: Even John Boehner’s staff doesn’t want to do this. It’s really the Speaker looking for a legacy, and I think that’s the most dangerous thing in the world, is an elected leader looking for a legacy, Mark.
MS: Yeah, I don’t even know where we get that kind of thinking. Who cares about his legacy? He’s the Speaker of the House. And what’s important is what’s in the interest of this country, and more specifically, the interest of the people who are existing, legal, U.S. citizens as of this moment.
