-- forgot the cuts that are not happening focus on all of those illegals who apparently aren't leave dying to hear some angry Arizona town -- Giving their two cents to one John McCain this -- That argument that illegals will be a lightly moving to the back of a line as they -- themselves up for citizenship.
It is a bunch of you know what.
Arizona governor Jan brewer's shares their concerns the governor joins me.
Right now governor what do you make of that and furthermore -- we just had on -- -- the chamber of Commerce Bank.
He he he lights this idea that that at least both sides are cobble together something that will move.
A lot of these -- institutes of citizenship and and the chamber doors that.
Well you know I believe that the people of Arizona strongly believe.
That they need to hit in the back of -- line and do it the way that everybody else has done it.
Bottom line -- -- is that we know that we need to work for us you know -- could be at work -- But not citizenship I think the majority of the people do not support that and I think it's going to be -- a hard place and I don't think anybody it's gonna happen until the borders secure.
You know -- -- so many competing ideas out there or Marco Rubio was and of course the president's would blitz patterns we hear from -- different players.
But one thing that is consistent is this promise that.
-- the illegals who are here.
Will simply have to move to the back of that proverbial line on but it it is an eight year plan.
As as as time -- from the chamber with sank.
You know you can go through this process now as an outsider coming in to legally go two -- words it could take two decades or more so by definition.
At least some.
Could be moving ahead of those are doing all the things right legally right.
And -- You know there's a processes there's roles.
And they ought to be followed and because you break the log -- ought not to be excusing gives vessel and be given special privilege that they.
Basically it that's the sentiment not the majority of the people in the United States.
You know -- it making it work -- There's some way they can do it.
But you know the pathway to citizenship by.
Stepping in front of other people on making -- conditions I don't think it's been felt very well.
I know there -- is trying to solve the problem now but it's it's it's it's not right it's not there.
And I don't think that the general population is gonna.
Tim what did you make of John McCain's arguments in this -- town smaller said you know we've we've got a wall a wall was up.
We're we're moving along on enforcing that border and -- policing it.
And this guy obviously didn't.
Didn't buy it this this critic of the of of the senators.
To Arizona's is of the view that we're just dropping the ball on on enforcing and looking after a border.
You know -- once again our border is not -- here -- fences aren't completed.
We don't have enough but people on the on the ground.
I was just down there last week I went with the National Guard I was in a black cock -- southern -- on the other side the drug cartels ready to come across from the middle of the night.
If it it is not secure their -- -- tell you if you sit down contacted -- that there -- fearful of that the Border Patrol was too far north they need to get closer to the border because they let him go so far than they just sort of -- -- And it destroying their land and destroying their cattle they're destroying -- water they're frustrated.
And I believe that and tell that ranchers -- law enforcement.
As satisfied and they tell -- that that borders secured others have been a lot of movement.
So promises -- part of the administration's secure the border tighten the border on the in order to go when he got a deal you you need more than.
We need operational control they can they do operational control a lot of a lot of areas that L -- Y one did in Arizona is beyond me.
Governor thank you could see again they -- governor.
