Blackmail moments

The Republican idea of requiring complete border security before implementing any other aspect of immigration reform is obviously a way to pretend to support immigration reform while actually sabotaging it, but there’s more to it.

Rand Paul wants a requirement that Congress annually certify that border security is on track. What Republicans want is another regularly scheduled blackmail moment, like raising the debt ceiling. Look for them to try to create more and more of these.
