Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is digging in on immigration, denouncing the bipartisan bill now before Congress and pledging a one-man show of force — if need be — to beat back amnesty and Republican-In-Name-Only compromises.

“It’s up to me and Fox News, and I don’t think Fox News is that invested in this,” Mr. Limbaugh said, according to a Newsmax report. “I don’t think there’s any Republican opposition to this of any majority or size.”

Amnesty is a tried-and-failed policy, Mr. Limbaugh reportedly said.

“This immigration bill that everybody’s touting on TV today is essentially the Bush immigration bill that was beat back in 2007,” he was quoted as saying, in Newsmax.


Sen. Marco Rubio — one of the senators pushing for this latest congressional measure — will discuss the bill on Mr. Limbaugh’s radio show Tuesday.
