Whether people want the -- Americans in this country not this year and the voting bloc. And the Democrats to take advantage of that certain. President Obama. And taking advantage of the east created this. This particular problem right now. Would work in Latin America my whole career you know that. The problems that endures tremendous as far as corruption.

Whatever you're up to cross that had those problems. That brings. Bring bring the children go in there there's this this is a crisis it created. I'd like to they're more likely culprit.

Probably you know congressmen. Is working to try to get the divisions between people party in the rational. Party you know. Together regret and aggression. Republican connecting -- to ignore the immigration problem simply saying you know support of the children. -- all of you illegal it would. Let let let let's look at some rumors issues. Look at Washington towards post. -- All contiguous nearby countries of the -- with a rapid increase in the number. Children and -- Americans Seeking Asylum. Nicaragua.

You about that means and explain appointment of violence always exist in under. As long remembered is a violent country are dealing right now would corrupt. Supreme Court. And I'm dealing with them and am getting help from congressmen. And senators. -- help me with the issue in the product longstanding. Well. You know so -- Did leave and as we have -- during immigration. In the world and in the bio aren't aware of certain. And so but why why coming now. Why is that this is this -- crisis provoked by the administration. Must have been. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You think okay. I I cannot believe that we can now strengthen -- -- wouldn't it. Leaves the border and on the -- guys you guys work. You know. You can close. But I do believe that we should now. Immigrants should come into this country to war. You know our lipped it in Poland and we've only got a -- Yeah we've got that law that allows them not welcome Bob -- ball. Until convert you guys keep talking about now. We've got to stop these illegal. Immigrant and in the movie ever talk about closing. The the border. Probably will go to. Other close the board. Opened up with somebody comes in with. Him and let them work in our country yeah -- in regard as the main post-Katrina. In Portland the Latin blood came here helped. To rebuild -- And so. There's good reason to bring Latin America mall and borders because it means to. -- help you know in in that it's an interest. But. The united. A lot of people that help a lot of people that helped to worry legal should we deep war. -- mean that it they -- those come back. I I think that -- That complicated question -- there -- go there to port tension. But the question that needs to be addressed now is that we have left in -- illegals. In this country the leopard -- okay. And the Obama administration is saying Cheney at our quick turn -- -- And the Republicans. Are going well I don't know. But. Couldn't. Get Republicans back. And the White House. I would tune. In blinding lightning. And Democrat -- aren't. That. I don't want this this whole half hour talking about the politics you got that over islanders. Pure search. Reading from their latest report. Last year there were removed 369. Now holds an undocumented. Migrants. An increase of nine times. Compared with the forty years ago. And I DelHomme let's say we've got eleven billion people. We're not -- brilliant grin and sleep they're illegal. At that ivory which I'm sure you disagree with the deaths occurred in the first place. But hypothetically. Say those figures or -- Well it's -- and take its thirty years to get rid of the one we. And because you guys never. Come up with a plan to talk about -- the -- or -- closed border or talk about it we're gonna have more people come and didn't. Well preliminary. Well. I heard -- we need to close the border. When we need to close the border and allow immigrants commit into the country. I -- know that I know that but how do you close the border. -- got other guys who historically. China they have channel. They're not the way to close the border there as well and you know in this country to do it. I -- I totally. I totally agreeable when I steps to Italy's one and I have all the conservatives on and I assume a Wikipedia. Let's look at how we can do this -- at the last group told me. Where you're logo and regal grand and that. We have hundreds -- it really closed the Texas border. It's if I heard more people saying what should you assess. China built of brick wall we can do you say. It. But just to talk about a bomb -- the -- -- and eleven billion here. To me it doesn't solve the. -- it -- question. Definitely. I was there's ways to seal the border do visit Bhutto knew it would. National -- -- you do. Increase resources to close the border. And that would need to be -- much. There's not much. This sent -- that he should the commitment that it. You know you're the -- in the administration. The order that national. Federally funded National Guard to the border and that -- That we have been doing. -- eliminate them at a brick. Lunatic break got to go to news into -- god truly pro complement its terrific. We've finally arrived. Yes we should close the border it's come back and talk about it now. -- -- old thing good about illegal immigration. In the United States across our southern border. And we have a little WW gold glove approach -- drug gore opinion poll wherever every morning whereas to. Americans plan to solve immigration. Is not. To close the border. But the distinct and unlike during the recession. For a few people entered the country illegally. Are you okay it will -- cure a -- of -- break 75 pars and -- -- pollute enough. And I've George followed with a -- group via -- New Orleans who's been an accurate to founded. In Georgia and call you can serve would tell me of fumbled. But. If you or your literally the first one -- -- on new years seven years. That his descendants. Yes we should close the border probably go but do. Well I mean when you have problems in the they'll close the borders of physical you do with national bark when you do the police -- do would -- that would boundaries do. But I don't -- -- well in the crystal clear on this like -- label. -- -- -- little. But I do believe that that would hear the eleven media whether that you -- in order to bring -- should be treated and look at what. This country and that by park to be able to keep them the country but he now. Didn't need to be treated with love and compassion. Including. -- -- I mean we are America where the country that is compassionate country we got a -- people truly. It is terrible situation -- -- typical in relation. To deal with an easy one to. Opening closing -- border it is. What -- to stop the ongoing problem. About -- -- to the match is being sent from the White House to these countries whose tenure. Oh and that that that -- that happening that live in squalor of the and then of course. The countries with what kind of violent. And so there. Send their children -- and I came to this country you know as a refugee from -- you. And and that's got to welcome in India -- opportunity. It is that we have bring people come. Crumble whenever they can because it's a collection of the country there are not -- in the United States is who's the greatest country. On the planet with a greater opportunity. My apologies to you that you believe you console that at The Heritage Foundation. Hooked onto it. Shouldn't have a that support. Children -- children and -- the world school. -- pivotal. -- advantage for -- that you. Strongly conservative. Michael. Let's get back to. You agree shoot wolves the border in the in the door open borders and -- -- And it didn't. And then all of that at that I'm not saying. Stop all immigration. When we try to on board to immediately or draw that one more time reading and people that walloped by the code and legally. By playing. Both by train. While walking across the border blue blue dot Kate were weakened. Check and we would come and so I agree would you. Bought it closed the border. Bush didn't talk about it or didn't do it Clinton didn't do it Reagan didn't total on the didn't do it. And I personally. Don't believe and you have -- A look in 2000 line and analysis from the old. They were building. At that time three and a half mile stretch of Vincent and the cost him at the eighty knew him doll. One developed. Brownsville Texas with a lot of it grew got four point seven million or is it. Over and over again associated persons series in taxes in the Texans said. You're -- -- take my property for a bit right now. A -- Or taken a look at 700 miles more. A vote gullible your best forward in the cause. It in the bin gifts until -- that's -- -- wouldn't -- 700. Close 670. Is thirteen 170 ma we've got 2000 miles to open part being the Texas border. How can we stop this if we don't close the border in part and he says. This serves conservatives. And liberal exactly what they need. They can sit there and the group's mobile would be from the all day long and it doesn't give us. Where a marble. Open the border can be. He can be he can -- A minute about physically well with men and it would -- I mean I think you'd sort of money. At that going to be a lot cheaper than dealing with eleven million illegal aliens that have maybe twenty million. You know so he's going to be cheaper. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And I do believe it as a political football. Game and which. Which of the -- that would do a good job of playing. Until that meeting it is the Americans go in there in this country which is -- As a -- is going minority group. In the -- stay at home you know whether it is now political and -- need to be. And I think it can't be at the border and you know I mean different. It. That's the real. World record would have darkened Alley where have been talked importantly it's would you reach agreement. It. Artwork I know you -- ago. Purge it I think where of these debates. More and more often in my -- support would be actually do some. In instead of the little slap fights. -- For sure you'd. Looked you'd. Debate positions OK I. I'm happy that these releases silently. You know. Does that have to deploy and try to address the -- from Republican side well let's go to group. Georgia appreciated call them we will be calling you give them great. I Debra -- bigoted celebrity -- five the -- Well do if you didn't break here or are we had a bra -- and a ground breaking. Event. In the big time. Well first time. Somebody that thinks we should deport. The children that are here now in the eleven million or so. Everything. We think that number we know bigger illegal and actionable -- think. First one ever. And terribly important to compensation. Does say. We should close the border. There are looking that report. Right -- future. Last year americorps moved 369000. Undocumented. Migrants. And intrusive nonconference compared with twenty years ago number one. Conservatives. Don't believe Obama did that but it's Cisco dependency. Here and a bit of the -- to conservatives. And saying that really occurred will do the -- If we had nobody else come and -- would choose what you would have to do and if you wanna get rid Libya eleven million plots. That's thirty years. At 369000. A year. Little bit more than thirty years. I don't see. How you even begin an internal closure of border. And can the border be close. On 370. Miles that would close. Congress. Is looking for the money. That technology. To close 700. -- That means. A good. 700 mile and a 2000 mile border will be wide open which is primarily taxes. And George Fowler of the -- I have a list out power. Is the only one. That is -- we ought to go endured the last two. I have only one conservative. Heritage Foundation. The album. From an organization called fair. And Melissa that they said we you know and you can put the ball room. -- it meanders like Mississippi River experts who wouldn't or in east and west and south it is that at some of the -- One that is crazy talk. All of the troops we have sitting in Germany -- If Russia invade Europe or 30000 troops can stop him. Do we nod if we -- for sport. 200. I'm an.

And this -- A Nazi and I know. It's him getting bare rhesus issues. Because if you listen to the conservatives. They don't want to talk. About closing the board and that they do mention. And you say how you're gonna do -- And get figures down -- costs. You have figures on god only. You get figures of -- that show how many people we're gonna bite him in Texas over the private property rights. I have my doubt. With this much bigger. Go look up HSBC. Largest banks and more affiliates all of with the United States. They watched. Drug and bide the billions of dollars. But just drug. There were is a -- And they won't warned over and over this stop.
