Good -- car.
And -- the -- caucus.
I got to ask you you're retiring right you're leaving us yeah yeah it's -- -- Two years I'll tell you know any time -- -- just do it the hard decision -- all right what do you do next.
I'm not real sure that people don't believe that they've retreated doubt be looking in a packet come home that being nice I'll go wherever the greatest -- -- -- you know there are there many Democrats in Texas we you know we can get right.
Boy this -- -- as -- Supreme Court decides today -- straight down three -- of the four provisions of the Arizona law and Jan Brewer the governor declares victory I don't get it.
I was talking earlier to someone that's that well I'll tell me -- I would not want and governor brewer to be -- -- initiator.
It's working counts and fielding coming back in time he would have victory wise.
I don't get it but I think she also understands that he.
You know politically speaking it's an embarrassing episode in Arizona legislative history and -- fourth -- The court didn't say it was constitutional -- -- that basically it's premature but I think the you know that that other issues -- -- fall in due time.
What's a matter of if in fact they -- somebody of color and that person challenges that he has standing if you go to the courts but I wanted to be an -- even take that chance.
Yes they did not overturn -- they simply said.
Or uphold -- either way they simply said we're not deciding on this yet it's -- and and the other three.
Parts of the law are gone so are you surprised by the decision.
You know I am not surprised.
I just thought I mean I was hoping that they would basically spade -- with what would be the established principle of the supremes secret war.
-- -- -- Immigration law has always did in the purview of the federal government at this speak different laws.
I mean to you Mexican after awhile argued he could have different fifty different.
Variations of what we averaged legal status I mean you can't.
Well also the Arizona argument that the reason had to do this is because the federal government was not doing its job -- let's not sure -- deported more people certainly under Barack Obama.
We have -- more people from not coming over the border.
They've had very they've had actually more success over the last couple years they previously did so it's not even -- say the feds are doing their job.
Well actually they're not obviously.
And you with the record really is and we could go on how many Border Patrol people we have how many more apprehensions -- the border.
How we got around the world the illegal immigrants.
We confiscated more guns more dirty money more drugs.
That in all previous administration's.
This president is not gonna get credit for anything personable but what Arizona did I can't imagine -- truly motivated -- It's it's not a pretty picture.
But at least the Supreme Court is that you're going down the wrong road want to cooperate with the federal government.
Let's try comprehensive immigration reform my theory is that states like Arizona may not welcome comprehensive immigration reform.
-- -- just coming from an entirely.
Different world when he comes.
To the equipment that may be here undocumented.
But it has been making their contribution to this country and we need to assimilate and bring them into mainstream America.
The asked those people who object to this assimilation do you wanna pay more for -- fruit you want to pay more for your vegetables you -- really stop people to contribute society.
Barack Obama actually did some think.
That most Americans seem to agree with a Mitt Romney despite having -- numerous times and even comment on whether -- -- that are now.
The problem is what do you do it here at Romney in deer in the Republican primaries it gives them the should be the model.
For all other state and secondly that'd -- he would.
In the Oval Office he would not challenge.
And speech and assembly -- -- Yeah well I don't think you can walk back he is just painted himself.
In a rural corner on this.
But it's time -- simply say look what works for the United States let's look at it realistically from an economic viewpoint.
And what's good for society as a whole going forward and we are becoming together -- -- What what do we do next what will be the next logical step what can we do it.
Well I still think -- YouTube pushing heavily for comprehensive immigration reform I think I'm still gonna be asking better -- -- forward with his DREAM Act.
Because we need to do something legislatively that will provide.
Greater relief for some of the -- kids where editors a little bit more.
The pistons team predictability but we also need to be -- -- comprehensive immigration reform.
It's clear it just that you have -- pushed back -- obviously it'd be used politically affirmed at the November 6 election.
I don't understand Marco Rubio is objection to what the president's doing since what the president has done.
Is part of what Marco Rubio wants to move toward.
You've got me also I don't we -- -- senator rubio.
I I don't question is good faith.
I can't imagine why he would abandon any effort.
To basically introduce them that legislatively.
That would be eight -- complete approach to the -- kids this would be something that Democrats and Republicans could work on.
As we proceed with comprehensive immigration reform.
But I don't think that's what's gonna happen between now and November 6 -- her even -- -- do you think on this issue the president the Democrats have the advantage in the upcoming election.
This issue if people get the facts I think brawl right as far as when it comes to Latino community.
I he definitely has an advantage -- but it goes beyond that you know community this is about what America's all about.
Now and I would tell you -- the reason Latinos deal so personal about this.
It -- it spills over this ugly debate and what it's been generated by the heated.
And really disgusting rhetoric coming out of states like Arizona spills over to all Latinos undocumented.
Citizens permanent residents.
People they've been here before the United States and -- found it.
It's all of that is why else even in the state of taxes would you have.
Have high schoolers can't beat Arizona Arizona USA USA.
Win at -- from across yeah yeah -- the back.
The ball court that they did happen to be not mean.
I know the incident you're talking about in this USA USA is if you're not really part of our country.
Where a Latino team was to have this chance to have them buy it for -- dominantly white team.
As though you know they don't belong here.
And it just come across town yeah is that it happened in San Antonio I eighties and admit this.
-- That were the targets of the chance.
It's -- high school I graduated from this -- this people do not understand.
What is going on with this kind of rhetoric this kind of talk.
This kind of posturing.
-- I'm telling you now -- back to our society.
Would you support -- rubio I mean rubio became the running mate for Mitt Romney who would that be really good for Latinos -- wouldn't have the reverse effect given.
His views on some issues that may not be in the best interest of -- Latino community.
Well I would tell you now is -- was was the vice presidential -- the most interesting debate would be between.
-- Apparently that.
Romney wouldn't even come -- today.
Revealed on the right track let's explore it.
I'm with him why should we deport these kids he never even said that and this is on the easiest with the ball when it comes to immigration and that's between kids.
Words they didn't violate any law the United States of America and nowhere is there any legal principle in this country.
That basically makes the kids responsible for the acts -- the -- I mean he could even come out on that but no I don't need to be that he's going to be he's been bring -- on board -- Well if they did an anti since you know mark who's got a platelets go Wear them he'd be reversing himself now that he's not already done that a number of other issues.
