That the Arizona legislature passed.
Yesterday secretary -- senator Schumer rather out held a hearing about.
And about legislation that in the event that the Supreme Court to uphold the Arizona law but he wants it is this legislation which I guess would have -- Overruled the the Supreme Court but -- we'll be back fighting that's been court everybody will at that point but I'm curious.

Unless it was political in the United States.
Bob Dole wants it the most dangerous place to be in Washington DC is between senator Schumer and a television camera that holds true today.
What do you think it was an action that schedule this year and for the it's all got to do politics and election and that's unfortunate because.
I'm confident that we could sit down together and work out -- the Mac to work out.
Senator Schumer doesn't mention the fact.
That the -- United States had over one majorities in both houses of congress for two years did you ever see in immigration reform bill.
Before the United States congress by the administration when president had majorities in both houses of course not.

Succeed to some degree.
I'm -- but explain that because and I'm July 1 point and the president gave a speech on immigration.
An illegal immigration but American University went up and I and I sat in his speech at the time he had the housing at the senate both Democrats.
And then nothing -- why what why was nothing done because if -- it with what the Democrats wanted to achieve -- As something at that that was the perfect point down on the heels of a speech and while they still control both houses.
Not I don't know you'd have to ask him without any experience I had after the terrible shooting that took place in Tucson represented Giffords was.
Which wounded severely -- you know I wrote a piece in the Washington Post thanking the president because he came to Tucson and talked about how.

You'll be hearing from us still waiting for the phone.
What's isn't -- owed that not to do anything minutes and yet here he's he's spoken about a -- Any reason why we just get consumed with other things why wouldn't you want to report.
I don't know why the president does what he does when we were when Ted Kennedy and I were doing immigration reform.
Part of this volume which was compromised the Democrats and unions don't like guest worker programs -- you know.
But Ted Kennedy included in -- compromise so that we could.
Having bipartisan compromise who went to the floor.
Within amendment to sunset in -- -- in the guest worker program but not the rest.
I've been the immigration reform bill -- other than senator Barack Obama.

So we had a briefings from.

In my life this was absolutely the most nonsensical -- they didn't even know what date the president got to Carnahan.
They didn't know who was the -- was -- charge and it's a and whoever was in charge they didn't know where that.
Person why why why is -- room.
I have I think it dividend -- giving the information they don't care they're too busy with other things a lot where's the information.

We're not interfered with the cases but there are possible ramifications.
The national security.
Where -- prostitution in a room that had sent the president's schedule the night before the president arrived.
What was the relationship was was there.
Information given what what is so hold it wouldn't wish there and is there.
A problem with the national security side of this.
And I'm -- for protecting the rights of individuals under investigation but certainly it's a national security issues we should know about.
Senate thank -- that's -- thank you.
