You know you you had a bunch of sentimental.

And I applaud the governor -- -- is almost so much for.
Coming out and taken a stand on this because they'll -- me wrong for a legal.
Immigration 100% but -- legal anything I'm not foreign especially.
To the extent that an illegal immigration.
Has gotten out of control I -- -- -- stated scares me.
And it's it's gonna it's gonna really hurt.
The fabric of the country and bombing.
It's absurd really that anybody would oppose this law.
You know when you when you hear hey Al gonna touch on the Arizona lot -- -- -- about other -- When you hear about the ACLU final filing a legal challenge that we've got -- Department of Justice.
Considering getting involved in this that they may that they're moving closer in fact is what we were told toward filing a legal challenge against Arizona's immigration law.

-- -- first reaction is that all Arizona did was copy the law that story on the book on the federal.
Law books and I mean how could they do an about face at the federal level at this point because.
It just doesn't make any sense it's absurd.

Is it is it a particular party that you have trouble whether do you like you just like all the politicians -- the extent they wanna take control of American lives.
But this like any politician that lost control American freedom.
And that's what the Democrat party at this point seems to be the best that they are really out of control and god.
