How much that's portrait on the appeared.
Welcome back to five.
I wanna talk about a story that really has gotten the addition drive hit a wall we have another state Alabama.
After falling -- Arizona that has decided to take -- its own immigration -- and not let the United States.
Of America which does to immigration laws.
Implement they're all lost now.
In Alabama Arizona they decide to allow the police.
To stop and -- people to see if there were illegals.
Now Alabama which of course is a state.
That has a long history of not dealing with minorities -- -- and end -- this -- call -- the bull Connors law.
That they've got -- another Department of Justice is challenging Alabama as they have -- on to say wait.
This is not a state issue it is a national issue and what I was I -- -- -- without them like Arizona they didn't put in there.
That people who hire these people ought to be -- -- slammer.
They -- -- that should be -- or.
Look at what happened in Arizona what's going on in Alabama right now or are two states who said.
Look we're supposed to rely and you to secure our borders you're not doing it so we're gonna do it on our own I don't think the laws -- that crazy.
-- you're not allowed to hire an illegal you're not allowed to transport in illegal.
What's wrong with that well the first volume of more deportations in this year than ever has been the history of -- -- more -- coming.
Let's talk about what the state laws actually say Arizona and Alabama.
Both -- -- top flight attorneys to take a close look at federal law.
And they drafted their state laws to run -- currently with the federal -- so it's not like you've cut fifty states out there running around making their own immigration law they're saying.
We've now instituted state law it's running parallel to the federal law doesn't encroach on federal powers at all but since the feds aren't doing their job.
Now we're gonna -- -- have to do it ourselves and you know why isn't holder then enforcing current federal law instead of suing.
State and -- -- -- my god is shed Democrat emerges out -- to states actually trying to keep its citizens safe well then why not just repeal Bob.
The current law that's on the books making it illegal to come to this come.
That's rather yeah somebody -- from Ronald Reagan's law which was an amnesty bread -- 1986.
But the reporter Greg is that there are plotting now.
He had some more sense and the Republicans do now who want to use this is a political issue what I.
I am doing its -- its -- political environment that Bob who had a hit a great.
I don't mean to cut off and I assure you you're doing okay but it's not I I -- -- I -- that there -- job billion point two million people out of work in the country Friday -- would -- find out there's fifteen million people out of work here.
This is a jobs issue that did -- -- the states can actually bring jobs back to Americans by sending illegals -- or at least.
Making it seem so the more difficult to -- an illegal.
-- unions feeling -- that is.
That they don't about -- they're mixed Baghdad which union but you know that the jobs of these people take our jobs that were evil we had good employment that America's hidden.
Does not sure it -- get what you wanna -- -- and to the American people I actually have done that in the past.
Tick -- god help them -- and by the way this isn't just an economic or jobs issue it's not a political issue all the the Democrats have certainly had a ball politicizing this president was talking to La -- last week this is a rule of law at issue.
Are we a country of -- or not.
You're exactly right really changed jobs here if we get to watch may -- arrest some of these got to hire these people good -- -- I -- just wanna say do you think it's the best -- now with the way that the economy's going to have the Justice Department spending -- time again I think bullying a -- I think anything -- -- -- bull -- law that would be a good thing to -- -- move on to something -- to TSA now.
I -- is in you know that the Israelis have for a long time.
Done a screening when you with a country I've been through that you've been through Monica right it's -- long list of questions and they stare at -- These steep stairs and -- register -- she -- you don't need drugs weak -- And I know I don't know I don't.
It was sort of a way that they are that -- series of psychological -- questions in a way to sort of see if there's something about -- that doesn't quite -- now.
The Israelis have done -- three decades it does but now we're gonna do it in Boston got out.
How would you feel about the TSA that we all love so much here.
Doing a doctor Freud test I'd rather have them ask me questions -- touch my junk if that's we're asking.
Know that they can do both well got to touch your jobs and getting your brain job.
I I'm fine with asking the questions I think we should be behavior that would profiling in this country and we dropped the bomb us for a long time I've plotted and if you're -- -- not an Islamic terrorists and you've got nothing to -- exactly that's not touch my junk.
It's such stuck touching my -- it's that yields were about that is those those sheet through screening our look at him my John what I'm not I'm really gonna miss the intimacy.
I felt wanted -- -- I love about this so don't want to work for the TSA when they get those they do it's it's it's cold spots up.
-- spot is that what it's called the screening passengers by observing techniques.
Don't you love it when they actually find an acronym that works with the things He tried with the -- days coming up without.
I think it's fine I I I do you anticipate may be a longer line because there's a lot of conversation.
But I think it's important that you look at behavior and not blindly you know feeling up or -- any great extent.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I don't want these these these -- amateur psychiatrist.
Asked to give you quite hopeful they will be trained Bob but you might enjoy it you might enjoy the therapy no idea I got it I've had more therapy that I -- To possibly yeah.
I think you're right -- like you're -- Kagan TSA back into a room -- explaining every issue you.
Yeah aliens are staring at you He said they were asking questions there are worried you were on drugs they might not have been -- again -- -- really happy -- -- that -- -- That I wasn't I wasn't that and that doesn't bother me because I think that's what they thought every member of the last several decades Israelis have not had a single terrorist event happened in the sky.
They do -- the right -- look they have cameras posted all over the Tel Aviv airport.
You land there watching you from the -- to see if you're displaying any kind of nervous and good behavior that would tip they talk as long isn't and also the I'm -- that we're -- And immigration people who didn't think about the would you have any help lobby there all the -- when you get to meet the action uses -- -- you see some of them -- look at this they're beautiful beautiful yet coming up.
Britain's new fundraising.
