That's our amazing breed of all the way -- we're doing -- halftime report -- and I'm very.
-- snoring we can finish that other conversation -- yesterday adds so let's proceed proceeding I immigration reform Jamey -- -- you all for this but what.
What he said he got an argument that you're rewarding people for jumping or.
And I think there's no question that's a fair argument and they're trying to address in the legislation will never probably aggressive enough.
To satisfy a lot of people and I and understandably so.
They can't become the -- you back in alignment with them to remain here in some semi legal strategy they're not saying you have to.
Go back to your original country.
But and that is -- I think you I think I don't have a practical solution so there's no question that this is not doesn't solve all all the bases yet.
But they're trying to come up with some solution will be a perfect solution it.
And Gavin legacy you'd think when Jamie was saying you can't force all the illegals who were already here to go back and you said yes you can't.
Well if that's the problem is people just think about it as this sort of hypothetical concept Dana -- -- women.
Price when they don't why not a -- -- I went disproportionate amount yet I know that women don't think about it they feel about her.
And -- this concept of the got this giant hot air balloon and fifty million people gone.
As you go back to Mexico.
But we've tried this and it's worked great it's called attrition.
And it works just fine all you have to do is just put a tiny bit of pressure for every -- Michael -- pressure you put on some new hires illegals you get a flood that goes back.
They're very quick to go back or not that excited about being here in the first place a lot of mr.
I opt -- just not church -- I tell you you're saying I'm not sure attrition is the same thing as saying you can make them -- go back but I don't think that's what you're saying.
And I think we have made clear that not a monolith right so like some of them might not be happy to be here are some really do wanna be here it's already happening if not we have seen -- happen -- just right even -- -- -- -- -- Arab population.
You saw thousands go back.
Not because they experience any discomfort but because there was the threat of this conference that's -- easy.
It is to regulate immigration I think what is it most of these people really think what you had seen -- -- -- -- terrorist attack from.
Rich let me.
I'd say it's.
All you -- -- just this air of tension and people go back and Joseph.
There's these rich white liberals sit in their all white neighborhoods ago this is a -- -- wouldn't bother about that right now editing goddamn.
But quite so easy but I got to get -- on the other hand it.
-- -- but on the other hand you're imagining that this whole population.
Just came here yesterday some people just came here in the last couple years a lot of people have been here for a long time so it's a little -- Go back let me -- another running back Greg that's some public some of them went.
Some of that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- At a fifth ten million you want -- thrown out route I would say ten million would be easy to send back you know what are you saying enemy don't need immigration reform.
And they came here as far as much simpler than were almost like -- Let's see if they do this -- dot these guys across these fees you don't have to you know -- good thing if you send it.
Sending the back -- -- -- -- is it irrelevant unless you have a quarter the most important thing is to create a border that makes.
What -- -- that you can have a path to citizenship on which supposedly that's the whole idea behind this plan is none of this path to citizenship starts until the border more secure.
Which in all likelihood means drones every -- but I want to get people talking but these plans don't know Mexicans they've all they know is -- nanny.
If you let something as simple as driver's license have to be driver's licenses have to be valid.
Hundreds of thousands would leave.
-- so that would make an amazing sound yeah have you thought about getting that sound effects technology I was actually I did not get the position in the police academy they're -- -- old -- I -- in the running.
Greg -- where I want to just address what he said it this immigration reform will help the Republican Party which I know is that common argument that he's getting made a lot.
I'm not sure sure and here's why.
I don't remember what admiral painter played by the great Fred Thompson said in not for October he said at the Russians don't take a dump son without a plan.
That's how I feel about senator Charles Schumer senator Charles Schumer doesn't get out there and do anything that's bipartisan if he thinks it's gonna help the other part I think I got I think you're absolutely right I think that the way the Democratic Party has.
Evolved to a much more efficient Republican killing machine yet either very good -- and I I think you're right there might be something buried in this plan.
Double blow up -- Republican spaces.
May match Greg yeah -- anti Iran had shared many bathrooms with senators you rethink -- -- -- -- a plan I'm.
There's I have to -- I think -- -- police.
Luckily I didn't so I do have the back.
Acts without before I go my favorite article on this whole thing today comes from -- -- headline news.
Senators championing immigration reform have no answers for LG BT immigrants -- Steady gallop poll nine of them somewhat how nice guys that tomorrow afternoon tomorrow I believe that's enough.
