And he -- next guest says on the map if the president sticks to his suppose -- eight year passed a lot of them will.
Explain how how how that's gonna work suit -- and how second.
We don't have all the details but here's basically the way both the president's plan and senator rubio is -- and senator McCain's plan work.
-- on the first day you get work authorization of Social Security number a driver's license the ability to travel to and from the United States.
What they promises -- secure the border and once that's done.
You moved to the more formal green card so you get sort of year legalization or amnesty on the first day but then you get the real green card.
After they claim that the border will be in force and that's basically have a whole thing is supposed to work now.
The problem with that one of the problems is is that there are lots of people waiting to come into the United States and they've already waited years and yet these individuals.
-- get to live and work and and live their lives out in the United States so they are cutting in line.
And second the way they're talking about this.
They'll actually be able to apply for citizenship before the person who still waiting their turn overseas so they cut in line both in the sense that they get to step away any other -- the last -- And they get their citizenship or -- apply for citizenship perhaps earlier then the person who's playing by the rules.
And I think that's what's taking a lot of these thoughts on home members -- -- -- -- that today.
Feared that the process we already have in place.
To gain legal citizenship in the United States.
Is sort of being usurped by August because you know the normal rule of thumb if you -- -- become a citizen united -- from the first equipment that is their goal.
Suits and making -- -- -- -- -- take as long as a decade if there's an eight year time -- here.
That is -- Albert and possibility.
So so just -- -- eight vs ten year time -- lot of folks are here illegally.
By definition cut to the front line but you're saying many more well based on just them being -- -- look as long as they have.
Right in many ways the most important line that matters is the one being here and having the Social Security number driver's license and in that sense.
Because you get that on day one.
You are really very much cutting in line of everybody yeah.
Have that some of the documentation in place is crazy like that sounds guns -- legal you -- -- -- you do.
It's -- to get the ball rolling so a lot of people who are waiting to go through the legal channels are gonna.
Throw up their hands at this and I wonder whether some of the gets owed it to discards -- -- -- -- the illegal thing too because it's into work program.
Right it does make everybody who plays by the rules kind of look like a sack or a sucker for having believed in the system.
Remember if you're here legally with one of those H one B visas that let you work temporarily in the United States you're not eligible for this.
If you had just one out of status -- not renewed it and become an illegal alien they knew would be eligible so really the person who plays by the rules is going to be very much penalized for by this system and I think that's what concerns a lot of people one of the things that concerns a lot of folks Stephen thank you very very much.
