DICK MORRIS — President Obama's decision to grant amnesty to between 4 and 5 million people is really part of an ongoing cyclical process of immigration-amnesty-more immigration.

MARK KRIKORIAN — Obama's speech announcing his immigration diktat was the usual pabulum: "our immigration system is broken," can't let illegals "remain in the shadows," "commonsense middle-ground approach," blah, blah, blah. ​If I didn't have to go on TV right afterwards, I would have played a drinking game....
