House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) joins us to discuss President Obama’s plan to relax rules on illegal immigrants.  The president plans to allow them to apply for new visas before going back to their countries of origin.

And he would greatly reduce the amount of time illegals have to wait in their home countries before being allowed to come back to the U.S.

Smith explains why he thinks relaxing the existing rules is a bad idea and why he is concerned about the Obama administration pursuing critical policy changes without the approval of Congress. He also responds to Obama’s contention that all border security concerns have been addressed.
