Talk about what you're going to be busy with I know up on Capitol Hill the senate is going to start considering is -- true there are 300 amendments -- to the to the gang of -- suggestion on how to reform immigration.
And I think that's a good thing I'm and I'm on a lot of people are shocked by the sheer number but this is a very complex issue it involves everything from how we treat the high tech industry to what to do with people that are here -- And all sorts of things in between so it's not unusual.
And most of the amendments quite frankly very productive they're designed to make the bill better -- here's the good news the good news is the vast majority of Americans understand.
And believe in support an immigration reform package in fact today a letter was released.
24 conservative groups saying we support immigration reform if if you take measures to ensure that this never ever happens again what people are saying as.
Will do immigration reform but only if you make sure this never happens again we don't get another wave of illegal immigration.
That is a very reasonable request and I think that's what these -- many of these amendments are aiming to accomplish.
What what do you make of the fact that it Jim dement who was -- with the Tea Party until he's in there in the senate as well until he went on over to The Heritage Foundation.
-- essentially you guys are at loggerheads over immigration -- came out with a study that said that if this immigration bill goes through it's gonna cost the federal government.
At least six point three trillion dollars in you know.
All the entitlement and it other things that the immigrants who wind -- getting through the course of their lives.
Well first -- tremendous respect for charities and especially from Jim -- is a personal friend and -- mentor and we worked together on virtually everything we have a disagreement on how best to do immigration reform.
I dispute that report and strongest possible terms it's based on assumptions that just aren't accurate.
They're basically claiming that all these people that are illegally here we'll all become citizens and that they'll all be poor for the rest of their lives that's absurd.
They're claiming the -- a quarter of the cost that they calculate for those over fifty years from now a quarter of the cost that they claim -- for things like parks and roads and police.
Things are paying for with -- without them -- my last point the Social Security Administration yesterday sent me a letter in response to my letter.
-- -- basically says that immigration reform as we have structured it will grow the economy the United States it will add jobs and it will help but it'll be in net positive for Social Security we've got that letter yesterday.
The fact is if we do immigration reform right.
It will be good for America it will be good for our economy it'll make a -- safer and Oprah and Oprah protect our sovereignty.
Well the ball is in the -- court right now let's see what happens senator Marco Rubio joining us from capitol.
Sir -- you are much.
Are you you.
