Unresolved problem -- tonight there is some confusion.
About Republicans in the house and what they'll do.
About immigration reform -- -- Fox's correspondent Carl Cameron told us he doesn't think the Republicans will get anything done at all.
But today there are reports -- speaker of the house John Boehner is urging his crew to pass something.
So what exactly they'll just -- watching Karl Rove and you say.
I say they're gonna attempt to pass something whether or not to do over the next two two or three or four months is -- very much up in the air.
But I thought they read news reports today.
Were -- who were interesting and you have to speaker of the house John Boehner you have apparently the majority leader.
Eric Cantor of Virginia you have Paul Ryan the respected chairman of the Budget Committee.
All of whom were talking about the necessity of doing this and then you have the two committee chairman.
Bob good -- Virginian who has chairman of the Judiciary Committee.
And and Michael McCall of certain Texas who is the chairman of the homeland security committee -- of whom we're talking about.
Moving measures that have to do -- border security and immigration reform.
-- looks -- -- they're gonna be piecemeal measures is going to be a measure here measured and not a big.
But -- comprehensive.
There's an interesting op Ed in the Wall Street Journal and you -- for that publication.
By Tom cotton and Republican congressman from Arkansas -- makes a very good points.
That in the senate bill there are loopholes and -- half absolutely have to be close.
But that doesn't seem to me to be a game -- It seems to me that that the house could could plug those loopholes send it back to the senate net reconciliation.
Thing they do.
And get some bigger bill to at least go forward on.
This issue you know do you think that will happen well I don't think will happen exactly in the way that you talk about which assumes -- take the senate bill and repair it.
I think what they're likely to do is -- a series of bills which you deal with the issues that are airing in the senate bill.
And and and solve the problems or approaching a different way and then you go to what's called a conference.
And try and reconcile these different provisions in my big question there is going to be then.
Do we try to move all of these items in one bill or do we know that as the senate did -- -- we move them in multiple bills like the house did.
But look here's the bottom line the bottom line is isn't -- Nobody ever expected the senate bill to be accepted by the house we never expect the house to operate in exactly the same way that the senate does there's a much more diffuse structure in the in the house that requires these committees to deal with these areas of subject matter that they're responsible for jurisdiction.
And then we also know that the process is going to be longer in the house in the house is gonna take a different attitude on a series of issues.
But the question is is at the end of the day is there a possibility that something will give it get done I think so but I I admit it's very much up in the air.
All right so Cameron doesn't think it's gonna -- on and if it doesn't get done then you come back to the Republican Party.
Harming itself now we know there are certain Republicans -- never gonna vote for any immigration reform is not gonna do it and basically they say we don't trust the government.
They're not gonna do what they say -- does -- doesn't matter what's in the bill that would do it anyway so we're never gonna support.
Anything but as I say in the letter -- I answer a letter later on a program to a woman who writes in a month in that vein.
Well then you say hello to Hillary Clinton as president you know thousands and asked me.
Well -- you -- do you believe that do you believe the Republican Party sabotage -- blows up doesn't accept whatever description you wanna make.
That the Democrats will run with that and they'll win in 2006.
Look and it -- Hispanic votes is not the only saying that Republicans need to do in order to win the White House in 2016.
But it's an important thing and and recognize this.
Public opinion is changing.
-- the Associated Press for example just simply says do you support a pathway to citizenship.
The issue was 53%.
In 2010 it was 31%.
This even more interesting pew sit all right he accepted illegal immigrants.
Can become a citizen if they.
Have to go through a long waiting period.
Have to pay taxes -- a penalty have to pass a criminal background check and they have to learn English.
86% percent -- Republicans say I favor that 86% of Democrats 88% of independents.
So depending on how the bill is and the devil when it comes to legislation is always in the detail.
If you have a tough bill like this it will gain widespread support among Republicans Democrats and independents.
But yeah there's a threshold issue -- Republicans don't get past it.
We may end up CNV Latino vote go the way of the African American -- that is totally in the democratic column.
And Texas we get 40% of the Latino vote for him for our state -- candidates on a regular basis George Bush got.
44% of the Latino vote nationwide in 2000 and and for -- and Mitt Romney in Ohio got 42% of -- Latino vote when -- Got past the issue of you don't send them all home.
And got under the economic message so Republicans can do themselves some good by this but more importantly than the current system's broken and we need a new law not a throughout thank you --
