And if the Senate refuses to provide that "advice" and gives neither consent or rejection?

If it's the President's problem, then is it any wonder that he attempted to come up with a solution?
Yes, and he just got his hand slapped for his "solution." A better idea might be to appoint a candidate that will get 60 votes.

According to that logic, the President has the power to secure the borders, but not the duty. Sound just as convincing?
Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution gives the Legislature the power "To establish a uniform rule of naturalization." Article 2, Section 1, by oath, gives the President the duty to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
