Jon Stewart Tears Into Border Ideas from KKK, ‘Draconian’ House GOP

Jon Stewart wasn’t too hopeful that Congress would actually get anything done on immigration, and therefore wasn’t completely let down to find that the Senate accomplished nothing while the House pushed a “draconian” bill of its own.

He was particularly shocked by the KKK’s “shoot to kill” proposal, and by default had to go with the House GOP proposal as the less horrible option.

Stewart suggested if the House really wanted to up its game, Republicans would propose ridiculous ideas like “minors must be deported via circus cannon” or “dress the border patrol up as Mounties so they think they’ve come too far and turn around.”

But what really set Stewart off was John Boehner saying President Obama could act unilaterally on immigration without Congress, because he’s “pretty sure there’s a guy right now suing the president for that.”
