    I've given up on us ever having the will to do that. What we need to do is convince those opposed to immigration enforcement that Canada is a better place for our illegal immigrants (not a hard sell since most of them already believe that) and they will help smuggle them across the border willingly.

    It would sure be fun to watch Canadians have to deal with the influx of illegals and the effects on their welfare state.

But, at the same time, you can't say we aren't coming up with anything anymore. At least and be honest about it.
    No the Republicans certainly have come up with something, all credit due there, years and years too late but its something, now lets just see a complete bill.

    When it is codified in legislation then I'm sure it will be available, and with more time to read it than we got from "the most transparent administration in history."

    Its an excellent criticism that the ACA was not passed with sufficient time to review the entire law, I would not want to see that happen again because its bad governance. Now do you want the Republicans to actually allow their bill to be fully examined or do you want to just rush it through in the exact same manner which the Dems did?

    In other words I'm asking if you have any real standards, or just bias

    Did you read my post? Because your reply is surreal.

    I took "codified in legislation" to mean once the law is passed, since that's what codification means to be published in the US Code, if that must be done to fully understand the law then that's no different than what the Dems did.

    After three years Republicans don't even have a solid idea. After three years of scrambling to find an alternative to the ACA all Republicans have is a sales pitch. You don't even realize how ridiculous they sound sometimes.
