For -- blocking the legislation.
I mentioned what that La Raza a few weeks back I wish my magic wand and could make of all happened on my own.
There are times where.
You know until Nancy Pelosi -- speaker -- you know I'd like to.
Work work my way around.
-- I really don't think He wants to wait that long.
Meanwhile the house judiciary.
Consideration -- -- in the -- form tonight we focus on our ongoing discussion of illegal immigration some of the concrete solutions.

Wishes here we're back with more Raza a few weeks ago he's -- the Hispanic.
Our caucus -- a lot in his tuxedo.
Talking about a magic wand and -- what's going on with this president.
Let's figure out where that magic wand as -- -- unite grab hold of it I doubt over for a while -- He blamed the senate Republicans for holding up the DREAM Act He forgot to mention the five senate Democrats voted no and one that decided not to vote.
Back in December but let's take a look at the solution what is the solution that's what Republicans and Americans and some Democrats do want.
And that's fairness and our broken immigration system to be fixed.
But to look at the security of our borders number one.
That's why I really hope He will be in the coming months of this term in his presidency.
There are -- in Iran and let me ask you this and all of you -- in on this but right now we look at the latest Gallup poll monthly tracking poll.
This president has lost.
Eleven points among Black America.
Thirty point among Hispanic Americans He has lost twenty points among white Americans this president on -- quarters in trouble.
But hearing is pandering to at those centric interest groups advocacy groups in this case that is -- markets.
He continues with the same rhetoric the same approach almost three years into his administration.
Well what is it that this president does understand about past failures and their implications for future success.
Well it's -- that this that Washington DC doesn't understand about the issue of immigration that at some point we need Democrats and Republicans to get together around a solution.
And the fact is that this president has deported.
One million people.
Over the course of his his administration so far He has secure the border so that now you have a crime rate along the border that has lowered that across the country.
So what point will Republicans and Democrats come together and congress and say you know what.
That solution to our broken immigration system is getting people right with the law.
Having illegal immigration system that people and go through therefore we can actually you know go from us a country that is as safe as the border -- -- And we can have us economy a prospers so what's wrong with -- president is what's wrong with Washington DC is that we need.
Democrats or Republicans to come around a table and realize that we need to -- are.
And solution -- -- -- that does the congressman Lamar Smith the chairman of judiciary committee for his Europe.
His bill does that satisfy the conditions you just laid out only.
As a standalone piece of legislation that only thing that Lamar Smith bill does is over regulated business.
In place an enormous strain on small businesses who would have to spend -- up nearly three billion dollars to implement.
This legislation and at the end of the day stand between.
An American and a job.
That is not what we want that's not what we need at this point in our economic recovery we have growth.
