SHUTDOWNBREAKIN

Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who also happens to be a former Air Force pilot who flew in Iraq and Afghanistan, joined Brian and weighed in on the reports that the Obama administration has refused to share intelligence with Egypt and Jordan to fight ISIS. Kinzinger told Brian he believes the facts on the ground will force President Obama to change his tactics against ISIS, listen to his military advisors and send ground troops in to fight ISIS. On the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF), Kinzinger expressed his frustration by saying that one of the main stumbling blocks is the President's three year time limit to fight ISIS. Kinzinger said he has drafted a resolution that would strip the three year limit, saying, "Our job in congress is to declare war. It'ss up to the President to act like a Commander-on-Chief!"

Turning to immigration, Kinzinger feels that U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen's decision to temporarily block President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration is a big victory for those who believe the President has overstepped his constitutional authority. Kinzinger now hopes the ruling will lead republicans to back off their threat of defunding the DHS. Kinzinger wants republicans to find a way to fight the President but not put the American people at risk. Kinzinger stressed that if the government goes into a shutdown, it will hurt the Republicans in the long term leading into 2016.
