Republicans are understandably angry that President Obama acted unilaterally on immigration reform. But what does the GOP want to do about the millions of illegal immigrants already in this country? Good luck finding out. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, was asked that question eight times during a short interview last week on Bloomberg Politics’ “With All Due Respect” television show. Huelskamp repeatedly dodged the question. The most he said was that there would not be mass deportations. Exasperated co-host John Heilemann finally ended the interview by telling Huelskamp: “Don’t ever say we didn’t give you a chance to put forward a positive idea about what your policy is to actually deal with the problem.” – Phillip Brownlee
