Opinion: Immigration overreach is not the answer to a permanent solution

Following the recent Republican romp in the fall elections, Ariz. Sen. John McCain was in no mood to spike the football.

Yes, he was happy that the GOP was poised to assume the Senate majority and that he would soon take over as the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, but a looming policy decision had him more concerned.

The Thursday after Election Day, Sen. McCain was reacting to rumblings that President Obama was prepared to act via executive order on immigration.
