It's official, Gary Johnson is not running as a libertarian, or even someone right-wing, but as a big government center-left candidate.
In an interview with Townhall's Guy Benson on Wednesday, the former New Mexico governor was apoplectic over the term "illegal immigrant," calling it "incendiary," and introduced his pro-immigrant platform that includes Obama's executive overreach.
Benson challenged Johnson's support for the president's executive action, which was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge.
"Is that how separation of powers ought to work?" Benson asked.
"It is the reality though, the three branches are always butting heads with one another," Johnson said. He then muddled through random examples of how he opposes mass deportation, which had nothing to do with the original question.
The new Libertarian Party must not care about restricting executive power.
During the interview, Johnson also said he plans to expand legal immigration.
"These are hard-working people who can't cross the border to take jobs that U.S. citizens want, so they cross illegally just like you or I would do," Johnson said, presupposing that all Americans would be willing to break the federal law.
"Make it as easy to come to this country to work as possible," Johnson continued. "Issue a work visa, which should entail a background check and a social security card... don't build a fence on the border."
