Hi everyone I'm Laura Ingraham in for Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight.
The immigration debate unfolds that's the subject of this evening's talking points and am now.
Immigration reform drama playing out on Capitol Hill right now really should have its -- -- bill.
That way everyone will know the members of the cast the understudy is the members of the orchestra.
And all the key stage hands.
And I said about three months ago this spectacle has been directed all along by the White House.
And brilliantly choreographed by liberal New York senator Chuck Schumer.
And today the New York Times confirms the White House is stealth campaign to run the immigration negotiations.
President Obama's staff has even set up shop in senate -- -- And has been drafting language for amendments and then even giving other amendments thumbs up or thumbs -- And let's not forget by the way the president's point person on immigration is none other.
And Cecilia Munoz she's a former senior vice president of the militant open Borders Group -- -- so that means the race and Spanish.
The dialogue in this off off off Broadway production.
Is stale frankly and it needs -- re right.
This is a break for a government this is our time the system is broken but teen goes -- -- the GOP if they don't do this.
We need to bring people out of the shadows law law law.
Cliches in generalities.
Are what usually follow any time a tough question a specific factual question is -- for instance.
About the economic impact of this legislation especially on working class Americans.
To my radio show I really got into it with the co author of -- oppose it breaks -- amendment senator John -- from North Dakota.
And this immigration reform will flood the market place with new workers -- legalize workers.
It will drive up unemployment and drive down wages for the next ten plus years according to CBO how can you support that.
My whole focus here is to secure the border first.
And I tried to put forward five tough conditions that must be met before.
Any illegal immigrant gets a green card or on permanent legalized status.
That's what I'm trying to do you secure the border first.
Well that sounds nice but that's never the way it ends up playing out -- if they're not enforcing the law as it exists today.
Why are they going to be enforcing tougher new restrictions tomorrow.
So we -- -- fact now that the -- never gonna be secured under this type of scenario GOP senators supporting the gang of eight.
Are already starting to hear negative reviews calls to their offices are overwhelmingly.
Against the bill.
But I have to say it looks like the fixes and in the US senate.
But I hope -- house speaker John Boehner is watching this drama carefully.
Knowing that La Raza is co directing this production he announced that the house GOP is done with conference -- immigration this year.
And simply pass a resolution urging President Obama to start enforcing the border to protect American prosperity.
And the national security interest.
Republicans can then refocus the debate on helping increase the prosperity of all American workers all legal immigrants and their families as well.
And that's -- -- now on.
