Memo to Paul Ryan & co.

As the staff of Unforeseen Contingencies awaits the State of the Union address, "we" note there's a dispute concerning "guests" at the SOTU.  Some of the Democrats are bringing illegal aliens as "guests," and Rep Paul Gosar (R, AZ) is asking that the police arrest them as they go through security and their illegal status becomes evident.  This makes obvious sense; Congress should not tolerate wanton, flagrant flouting of the law.  Of course, some who don't care about the law, Paul Ryan and Jeff Flake, for example, disagree.

Question for those two gentlemen: when is it appropriate to permit criminal violations?  Is it just when your political opponents are trying to mock and humiliate the President of the United States, or do you have additional situations in mind where your personal fiat should trump the law.

"We" at Unforeseen Contingencies do disagree in one small detail with Rep. Gosar; "we" think the Capitol Police should also arrest Congressmen, Congresswomen, and Congressthings who facilitate this law-breaking.
