Republican Immigration Foe Has No Alternative Plan

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), adamantly opposed to immigration reform, must be apoplectic following President Obama's speech tonight. So what is his alternative plan? Interviewed on Bloomberg's "With All Due Respect," Huelskamp danced around host Mark Halperin's repeated questions about what he would do about millions of undocumented immigrants. When it was clear that Huelskamp had no solution, co-host John Heilemann concluded, "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. We gave you a bunch of chances, but you decided not to go for it." Huelskamp reflects his fellow House Republicans, who refused to act after the Senate passed an immigration reform bill. Whether the issue is immigration or health care, the Republicans rail against reform but offer no alternative. Watch Huelskamp refuse to "go for it":
