Speaking of Seriously Undermining the Rule of Law ...


US Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), writing at Politico on the presumably coming presidential "amnesty" ...

Thankfully, the framers of our Constitution, wary of the dangers of monarchy, gave the Congress tools to rein in abuses of power.

True.

What the framers of the Constitution did NOT give Congress -- in fact, what the framers wrote an explicit prohibition of into said Constitution -- is the authority to regulate immigration.

A partial "amnesty" of those accused of violating laws which cannot possibly be binding per the US Constitution doesn't seem so much like an "abuse of power" as an exceedingly late and far too weak gesture toward the "rule of law" Cruz claims to value.
