-- -- -- jets fans I had a word yeah a -- to.
Okay that was Bob Cusack managing editor of the hill.
But seriously though -- that can this so we just to him with a panel here.
About immigration reform this group of eight they seem like a pretty powerful pretty influential -- to -- got it got to inspire some real movement do you think.
You know I I think this is some significant.
Movement Louis Gutierrez -- a leader Democrat leader.
In the house has said just now I we have real momentum on this and there's no doubt about it this is that the most momentum immigration reform has had.
For about 56 years but whether it can actually being.
For -- released 45 page.
Briefing paper -- -- move that it's a legislation Bennett's got to move through the Judiciary Committee pat Leahy the chairman and that is not part of this group of six flash eight so.
-- I think that immigration has got a good shot yes but when you get into the details and amendments that could be added to this.
There's a still a long way does that -- of the house do right.
And there's a strong top of the house.
Republican caucus that he's going to.
Wanna focus more on how we secure the border as much as yes the others -- on the left and some Republicans are going to want to -- appealing about the top diseases and -- kind of the clauses in it so a lot of fights to come.
Lot of -- economy house Republican heat here a couple of them already like Steve King Republican from Iowa who may run for for Tom Harkin senior senate.
You -- you hear that word amnesty a lot from from house Republicans not all of them.
I and that's been a problem but in this is backed by senator Marco Rubio who is adored by the right so that's.
That's a big I think -- this is not just a Senator John McCain and a couple other.
You know many other back benches -- is Marco Rubio who could run for president when he sixteenth so it's got to it's got a decent shot that the becoming lost some version of it.
We have very and it's going to be interesting to watch out on the Scott Wilson won -- -- that -- is as I would guest worker status to illegals.
I guess what status to illegals who passed criminal background checks if they want.
Citizenship let them go through the process like anyone else I mean how radical do you think that pot.
All that any legislation can be in the current political climate have sweeping.
Can President Obama be in terms of that the citizenship angle of this.
It's going to be very -- -- and there are going to be a lot of people want to say hey we gotta have background checks to make sure that they don't owe the government any money any type of provisions to make sure that -- if we're gonna give these people citizenship they've got to pay a fine how much is that -- they have to go back.
To their home country and then come back that was discussed previously.
You know there's a lot of details here and it's been in is going to be probably I could see -- hundred plus amendments on the senate floor.
Trying to change this so and they could be poison pills and and one -- sat in the whole thing blows up we saw that in 20062007.
Right I didn't hit a couple of other battles it always seems to be battles in in DC but another one shaping up is is a fight -- -- possibly between.
President Obama and the GOP over the consumer bureau -- Yet consumer be admitted we had a big ruling on Friday.
Where recess appointments were deemed unconstitutional and Obama violated -- constitution.
By -- point eight.
-- recess appointment to the NLRB a labor relations board.
And it also has ramifications.
On which -- quarterly who's the new head of the consumer agency in this isn't.
This is a -- for the administration unless they appeal it to the Supreme Court and win because.
Basically it was a dispute over what is a recess and administration has a different.
Viewpoint of what the senate recess was.
That -- three judge panel all Republicans.
That's sided with with Republicans and industry and said.
These guys are Null and void and the problem -- Jonathan is that all the rulings either from the NLRB and possibly this consumer agency.
Could also be.
Null and void over the last year so this is -- at court battle that's worth watching.
All right -- finally -- -- jets quarterback going to be next season.
You don't you know I think it could be taveras Jackson I hope it's not Mark Sanchez but he's -- -- be on the team -- it aims to much money after a very good point are at -- -- -- we don't pay any money but it's still the most valuable member about team -- wonderful to see you as always and a -- to read more of any of these stories and talking about involves.
