But it's a simple political ideological difference again it's not a personal thing the president these wonderful -- me.
But I was on the.
It is today is a straight line connection between being a Secret Service agent and then running for office in other words what did you learn on that job -- that helps you get in the politics.

It's not an issue about immigration it's an issue about the law.
We have every club gets a -- in kids get this right they put the club rules up and pay even five year -- we have four rules is citizenship or something or is it not.
