Project 21's Cooper Dispels Liberal "Mischaracterization" of Reagan, Bush Amnesty Plans 

Liberals are engaging in a “mischaracterization” of how Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush dealt with illegal immigration during their presidencies.  Project 21 co-chairman Horace Cooper noted those presidents worked with Congress on a plan that made Congress a partner as well as crafted a policy (one that Reagan, by the way, deeply regretted) that brought the political parties together.

But, in the case of President Obama’s executive amnesty agenda: “We do not have that in this case.  We have the exact opposite.”

In discussing the illegal immigration-inspired constitutional crisis on the 11/19/14 edition of “The Big Picture” on the Russia Today network, Horace said explained that a likely rebuke of Obama’s executive amnesty will come in budgetary language denying funding the implementation of the President’s agenda.  When host Thom Hartmann tried to bring up impeachment, Horace explained that, with the exception of a few outliers who are not influential to the expected process, “no one is calling for impeachment.”
