Turning now is California represented Brian Bilbray congressman -- -- -- do you have confidence in the secretary of Homeland Security.
Now I think the problem was it was a political appointment.
I think we ought to be talking about fact it's -- law should be a law enforcement background.
Somebody like and -- person who may be -- dyed in the wool Democrat but at least he's got some experience at doing law enforcement and making.
-- decisions based on public safety not based on.
Congressman let's let's can we just talk about this.
And and the reason why we brought it up is because -- news came out today that Apollo autonomous -- said maybe you won't have to take off -- shoes going through the airport sometime in the near future but.
Really I mean this all spike came as a result of Richard Reid trying to trying.
Trying to light his shoe on fire never -- get millions and millions of Americans have had to do that.
For the last ten years or nine years whatever it is or what was that overreacting in the first place.
I wouldn't say that I would say the problem is this is an.
That people not knowing what they were doing.
I think there was a lot of action reaction but.
I think the biggest problem let's say they overreacted and some things like this so that they didn't have to.
Com decent common sense stuff like taken a look at who exactly is being proposed.
Because they're worried about the political repercussions of so called profiling which Americans.
-- said it I mean it's absurd to be making these policies based on political perception -- -- sort of safety but.
But but you know I think there was a study I think it was may be last week or the week before.
That a group Homeland Security may have even been involved in it that they -- some -- tomorrow eats.
Out of ten people -- ate up ten passengers that they placed trying to carry so smuggle something on a plane that could have been a bomb.
Actually got through the TSA so my point is we've been taking off our shoes for nine years.
When in reality it may have been easier for someone to bring something on in -- in a bag or taped to their body.
He's only -- -- shows that not right.
Absolutely and that's where you get it does look a lot of this stuff -- like World War II with collecting aluminum cans that really were more about.
Public relations you know they they're they're doing things that make it look good -- rather than having that -- bomb sniffing dogs.
And using canines like his -- uses extensively.
A rather then.
Utilizing techniques have been proven around the world -- -- in a country like Israel that's been under threat for 3040 years of of these kind of attacks.
I'm always looking at what will be a sell best on the evening news not what will depend defend and protect the Americans best.
We that's why I say that the problem is as you get up.
Pellicano was a political appointment she does not how the law enforcement background how the well rounded concept that.
-- calm matters more than perception with law enforcement and she is obviously been driven by the perception problem.
That's why I think that the president I'm ought to be looking at the fact that down there should be a law enforcement point rights aren't in college you wrote a letter the president recently on security what what was that about.
I'm I'm sorry what was that of the letter you wrote to the president a lot right over the president.
Obama has decided that he's gonna pick and choose which laws are enforced He is so openly said that illegal immigration will not be enforced by.
This president or his administration he's -- in the white under the constitution for the executive branch did.
To veto any bill at any time anywhere.
In violation of what most people understand the constitutional say.
And to sit there announced the world that you can come to this country legally and the Obama administration has announced it will not.
Prosecute you for being an illegal immigrant now.
Unless you're from you commit other crimes not related to immigration all all right what I always rages almost side usurping congress to form some sort of always I don't know how -- and certainly this is violation of the separation of power is that He.
He's given the right above the -- -- pocket veto within a time limit under the constitution he's an unconditional and I think this is going to go down like individual mandate on healthcare.
And this administration doesn't care about the constitutional limitations that is supposed to be living and congressman Brian -- thank you very much for joining us tonight.
