Monday on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum,” former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson said if President Barack Obama goes ahead with his planned executive order that would grant amnesty to upwards of 5 million illegal immigrants already living in the United States, congressional Republicans have to cause the president “pain” by strategically shutting down only the executive branch of the government.
“I don’t think it has to be a full shutdown,” he said. “Congress should look at those thing that would be most detrimental to specifically the executive branch not the general public. This is a game that can be played by multiple people.”
