Hello I'm Victor Garcia for Fox News Latino and join me today.
Alan -- I thought I was mortal but thank you for that promotion you -- and with a forever Allan thank you remind you know that they could someone.
I wanted to get your opinion -- -- very important issue that we're continuously debating in the political spectrum.
And that is the immigration bill which is announcement now seems to have some progress momentum.
What do you think about it right now.
Well I think that bill is it's it's absurd that they're still arguing this among the Republicans.
When it takes thirteen years to become a citizen going through what that bill calls for.
And they keep calling for more border security in fact is according to Cato Institute just -- a lot of studies on this more people actually believe in the pack -- they're coming in I'm very different view than.
There even debating and I like to see.
Like the Cato Institute have a much.
Better take on this anybody gets a work visa should be able to come here.
And you don't a lot of people who would not get -- it would ultimately leave many people won't leave the country because -- pretty getting caught.
I think our whole system needs to be redone and then we're not even that funny that part of the debate when I just suggest.
Now you know we had we look like we're gonna have momentum with -- with bush yeah we're at this point again.
And looks like we're finally -- to some consensus that a little bit of a fight you know there's still some -- they've got the Tea Party Republicans -- people on the far right you're gonna wanna work with Boehner and the establishment Republicans to get something done.
They don't care that they're losing the Latino vote they don't care that they seem to be a party that is narrowing its focus.
Appealing only to older white man.
And that simply if you just want to be cynical about it and calculated just for the purpose of getting a broader voter base.
They they should be doing this -- that even if that's the only reason they're doing it.
His you know I don't think that -- -- themselves politically going forward this -- you think no immigration reform that's it for the Republican Party.
And it's not good for the Republican Party side -- for congress in general left one of the reasons congress has right now the lowest approval rating it's ever had -- the -- of rating of any agency ever.
Vegas is a perception that can't get anything done certainly this is an example.
Now I had it within the panel a -- back with Juan Williams.
And we did one recently who -- Williams overall though are bowling for all those says Ted Cruz kill this thing.
Is that that would would you agree with Roland I don't know that is.
Dead yet but I would say that pit -- -- not been an advocate or helpful along these lines he -- he's an example.
On the senate side of somebody -- -- so far to the right so far in the pocket of the Tea Party.
And those who don't want any kind of a change in -- bring the country back not not moving forward.
Now what do you think it needs to happen next for us to move forward on.
Well I think you need to have a party that understands the importance.
The you have to come the realization you've got millions and millions of people living in this country or not that it was Mitt Romney said self deport when he said that.
During the campaign it was certainly not anything to help them.
You've got to have a party that understands that you've got to deal with the people here and you've got to convince the people that it.
Going to a thirteen year cycle before you can even become and you go to the back of the line before and jumped to a these -- -- -- can -- become -- citizen is not amnesty.
You've got to change the language of this is an -- amnesty bill it's not at all what would Reagan did in 1980s -- it.
Now your best buddy.
Recently on this network.
The body that you used to work for that I used to work for you know good friend of mine get -- of years yes.
He says that you should get better get on board with this bill he's got on board with the -- rubio.
The people owners for the Spiller -- that well does that how does that affect the.
Slowly -- -- -- what is a powerful force he talked to rubio apparently and I was reading over the weekend so boldly blogs -- the conservatives have just been attacking.
Bill O'Reilly and -- for for having a fair and balanced view -- Bill -- -- -- to walk in lock -- with the right here he comes with an enlightened view in my view.
And you've got conservative -- -- of -- factor again you know you -- -- -- take a position that they agree disagree with even once it's absurd reaction.
To bill having thought this through talked to rubio realize.
That it maybe there's a position -- they haven't thought about a skill wonder then.
We get immigration reform this year.
Think it's about a four and a half I think gets -- uphill battle at this point I'd like to put it over five and I'm a little concerned.
Based on the rhetoric we've heard over the last week or so.
All right Alan Colmes really appreciate you -- gonna think of it there.
