Jon Stewart Offers To Solve Immigration Crisis On The Border

Since Congress can't act to solve the immigration crisis on the border, Jon Stewart has offered to step in and fill the void. On Monday night's "Daily Show," he suggested that lawmakers should have fun with new border security measures.

That means circus cannons, "Wipeout" courses and even Canadian Mounties at the border to confuse undocumented immigrants into turning back.

Of course, Congress is enacting none of Stewart's ideas and a House bill was passed after the Senate already left town, leaving House Speaker John Boehner to suggest that President Barack Obama should take action on his own.

"There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for Congressional approval," Boehner said.

This statement left Stewart practically speechless -- but only for a moment.

"Did John Boehner just suggest that if Congress won't act to change a law it doesn't like the president should? Because I'm pretty sure there's a guy right now suing the president for that," Stewart said, referring to Boehner's lawsuit against Obama.

Watch the clip above for more of Stewart's take on the crisis.
