Krauthammer: Defund Exec Amnesty Without Gov’t Shutdown
Columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out a plan for the GOP to defund President Obama’s executive action on immigration without a government shutdown on Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel. 

“I think what they ought to do is to pass a continuing resolution that lasts through next year, through September, but for ICE, the immigration service only, and for the EPA, I would only have a three-month extension, at which point you would be fully funding the government but you would leave it in a position where in mid-March, when Republicans have the high ground, control of the House and the Senate, they would be in a position to use the pressure to get what they want either on regulation, on EPA stuff, environmental stuff, killing coal, or on immigration issues. But you don’t do it now when the other guy has the higher terrain and when you know how the president will report it. The Republicans are ahead, they shouldn’t blow it” he stated.
