This also in the talking off you probably saw this Justice Department meeting today.
The one about the guy -- guys behind what almost happened.
In New York but not a word about a closed door Justice Department meeting overtly what continues to happen and Arizona.
The televised event was about protecting folks want but is that on televised event more worrisome because it could be ignoring -- which.
Welcome everybody don't feel -- -- box on top of an illegal immigration meeting under the radar at issue Arizona and that crack down.
A group of arizonans wants shocked town.
Not the seven added ten arizonans for the cracked some politicians and lawmakers even clergy tonight.
Who've had enough of the crack -- a demanding the Justice Department stepped in just slap it.
And slap it down fast but I have a very good friend and one congressman Luis Gutierrez.
While protesting against the law.
Outside the White House congress and Georgia right now president have you.
Thank you -- pleasure to be with you this afternoon.
You know seven out of ten -- as I indicated comments and -- floored they're so they think that your meddling in what -- which is aren't.
And now we have this Justice Department -- Where it gives the appearance of some folks who aren't happy you're just trying to force their way over the will of the people -- Right yeah.
Well you know something I understand the frustration and the anger.
That people in Arizona feel about our broken immigration system mean -- -- live along the border there are many.
Drug dealers members of the cartel.
War want to push their drugs and their poison into America.
And I understand that we can do more but let's remember there were 101000 border patrol agents and -- to.
There -- 20000 today.
Why don't we focus on the war on crime which I think we should do.
By -- we need additional border patrol agents if we need additional ice agents but focus on the criminal element there and eliminate that magnate and.
Arizona that is primarily an Arizona workers there identify the bigger question more agents that -- left and more guys agents they've requested more support from the federal government.
No offense to his serve but wants -- -- kept dropping the ball again and again.
So these folks who are dealing -- all of these problems and the high crime and the high cost of other hospitals is waiting rooms are exploding.
And schools' budgets that are exploding.
That's and we have to take matters into our own him.
-- and let me put it see this leading up.
It took to we have 101000 border we have point okay we've added 7000 -- -- ice agents we put several miles.
Hundreds of miles.
A fences between the border -- -- high tech surveillance it's not gonna stop -- and tell you stop.
The magnet that brings undocumented workers to this country so I -- -- Goodell -- and I want total value every step of the way you're right and any dissent.
But arizonans -- trying to little avail.
Now you can argue clearly the dangers of a law like this that could lead to some of the very things you hear and -- and I understand your reticence.
But it I think what you also have to agree others.
We're for a lot of arizonans to be now called racist or worse for wanting to do something to crack down on a problem that has sucked -- state drive.
-- -- -- -- -- And here's what here's what I think.
I think that the police.
They're number one supporter is the American public their number one -- in combating crack.
That's really what you thought about fundamentally about -- we deal with the criminal element.
Which had the drug dealers and our voracious appetite for the drugs that they wanna bring into the country I think that we deal with that I think we're helping the people of Arizona so what I want.
If the police.
Not to be divided from the people.
Because you're all of these eyes and ears of the American has the greatest -- the police department and you put a wedge which I think the Arizona logged.
Between the population.
And those among which the criminal element live.
And high and then send a passage you aren't gonna load this as an alternative to -- division fines or would you find it oldest comforting that you're inserting yourself.
It it it it in -- -- Arizona.
What that was overwhelmingly supported by the public that.
And that that that is that at.
At the very least reckless.
And have -- that you borders on illegal and and and these folks are saying win win win win win.
-- -- -- -- You know here's how I look at it I -- -- law.
That clearly it's an open a pandora's box to discrimination.
And to racial profiling it's gonna do that we don't need to -- you don't know marry you don't know that do well admit that put.
-- given the path is really.
Good indicator of the future.
But having said that look we can all -- -- I think the fact as I said at the beginning I understand their frustration and their anger the federal government has abdicated its responsibility.
In terms of immigration immigration reform.
So things are doing different things I say let's bring that responsibility back -- let me just say let's go -- there.
Those employers that hire undocumented workers and lock them up let.
Have now that that's where they've been waiting for -- -- -- a very good -- -- We'll watch it I'm gonna -- -- back on modesty too passive at this he got arrested over it but congress can be well okay have me back you know -- -- well.
We have big economies.
