And those are officers.
The immigration customs enforcement agency part of your friendly friends at the Department of Homeland Security.
And this is where welcome back now those folks.
Rob we're probably part of a big old union that represents those Border Patrol agents customs agents and other folks.
Who recently came out and said that they don't think that the compromise legislation on immigration moving through is a good idea fact they think it's a bad idea.
Because they think it will open the system to fraud.
they are just the latest in a number of people.
From starting on the right.
More rumbling on the left back and forth complaining about the so called gang of -- legislation.
It's big date date because they're trying to get this sucker out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
They have gone like -- weed wacker through -- hundred no kidding a hundred amendments they're trying to push this thing through.
But it it proves harder -- the longer it stays on the shelf of war critics emerge.
Especially critics standing like -- -- so what.
Does the future -- people who know or at least are willing to surmise is.
Include Chopra shot he is the president solidarity strategies and the director of the Latino project act that makes him hey.
Big blue union guy that makes him a Democrat that makes him hey dear friend of this Internet telecast -- -- -- Here and Javier Ortiz making his sophomore -- I believe on the dominant Internet political telecasts of the 1130 half hour.
He is the former advisor to the former governor of Rico loose for -- I don't know is founded associate member of the national.
Conference of Hispanic legislate -- And you -- a Republican as demonstrated by your red -- yes actually that's true that he owns it he's not that I checked his orange here I don't know he's he's going someplace that that powerful.
No no not an amendment and how do your -- you don't you -- -- -- -- I have trouble according to make it about that because Valerie W views of the big twelve in the service hurts my live in my house yeah.
Now the question is this guy's.
Chuck I know you.
Been generally supportive of what they're trying to do in the senate to get something right and I know that you feel the time -- now I'm here I've read your piece.
Not too long ago where you talked about the need to move the ball.
But the only -- -- man.
I think that it's important to have an American history of -- don't respect from a friend Javier but.
I do believe something has to be definitely something we'll be done I just hope the good people don't get in the way of getting something done.
I think yesterday was -- step forward I was happy with some of the commitments that came out of it but that he said.
Coming up from the left there were things I wasn't happy with but there are more things that I am happy with -- it seemed like.
They should be enough -- has -- -- to get something to make sure that we have something fair for these families -- -- Americans.
Heavy air your fellow Republicans in the house say -- go ahead and tire yourself that senate do whatever you want on this stuff because when you bring that down here Bob good lat and the boys on the House Judiciary Committee -- at best we're going to be able to move this and bite size pieces.
We're not going to be able to do -- -- -- In it it's interesting it's actually -- with -- we need we need to we need to move the ball forward.
And I think that.
-- to me is interstate.
That their folks that are experts in in border security Border Patrol doing what they do that they're saying this is not good for the country so that should give some people's -- -- to see where places.
That this needs to be -- falling.
And it certainly it.
Puts this whole staying at being in very dangerous ground if you will because.
If you have the experts in this.
Space that do this every day saying this is not good it will be difficult for us to enforceable -- the system fraught.
The house is really gonna have.
Difficult -- -- this -- it's a shame because I think senator -- Has done a great job in moving the ball forward working with the colleagues on the democratic side I don't want to call on the left because I think that.
We -- -- I think that is -- is -- the middle the middle of the country.
Is is coming together asked evidenced by what senator rubio is is trying to do but if this doesn't work if this doesn't.
Happen and it's getting more and more complicated and we talked about this before you know this it's getting harder to do you know scandal stuff over there you do that.
Washington president chuck always likes to say.
That boat and we can walk and chew gum at the same time Washington cannot walk to -- it can barely walk let alone walk and chew gum simultaneously.
The is it good or bad.
For prospects for passage of an immigration bill that there is so much distraction in Washington today it on one hand it increased the chances something get through without being the full focus.
Of political commentators and talk radio.
MSNBC and all that stuff there's so there's that but on the other hand people are just plain distracting.
I think that there's a reason why the congressional approval rating is probably less than 50% because people know the same thing that what you're saying is -- It's hard for congress to get things done and people think that the system is broken and this immigration policies a prime example.
I don't know that and -- another way if I've got people on the left and people on the right that are -- that means that something -- may be happy because of most of Americans aren't on the far right -- on the far -- they just wanna see something -- they wanna see problems -- they wanna see our country move forward.
But congress sometimes has a hard time doing it they let them get distracted it does become a good thing because her mind wanders to other places politically in my world they don't get something done Katie bar the door because I come and that gave me he'll be there for for those Republican congressman in Texas -- -- and -- -- -- -- asbestos and some choice words that you will be hearing.
In an -- how the air I -- give -- -- last worked for Republicans.
We know the contrary we know the shape of this but from a practical perspective.
We -- it comes time to move legislation and do stuff.
Can't house Republicans make a credible argument that doing this piece -- is superior to doing this -- months.
It will be difficult for them to.
Say that act and can move forward doubt wave really is because what we're really talking about an immigration reform is.
Bringing people to be part of the system and get folks to move forward.
And -- and contribute to the country.
By the way it's not all of -- expense.
So we have folks that in India.
Who are -- interest in this we have folks in other parts of the country and parts of the world that are interest in an immigration reform high tech.
Company's interest -- in this.
-- we can have a big debate about should we be educating more people Hispanics are included in high tech.
Jobs it to take those so I think this -- very complicated for house Republicans.
Not to do something because this is -- just -- that expects happens.
To be a big number associated with -- but there's big business also that's interest in -- and high tech companies and other folks are pushing very hard.
To make this work if Republicans.
Need to understand that the economy.
Is also going to be impacted if they're not moving this.
