An executive order is of course just that short term matter can be reversed by subsequent presidents.
I do think there's a growing consensus in America that we have to help kids like this that are through no fault of their own find themselves in the situation.
Well the GOP's number one toys that is possible number two so -- is not saying what they would do so.
-- gingerly dealing with this whole immigration issue my next guest.
Taking action and not being ginger about -- -- remote way Republican Arizona got his and then quell.
Is sponsored a bill aimed at overturning what he calls it integrates and power by about.
The White House what kind of back up are you getting congressman.
Well we're getting a lot of us support from other members to actually.
Not allow the implicate implementation of what the president said last Friday -- what's his secretary not -- -- put out a memo.
It also goes to not allowing implementation of an ice memo.
That allowed discretion for Border Patrol agents to be able to.
Just turn illegal immigrants back south rather than properly processing them and giving them through the system.
What do you make up the very cautious response of Mitt Romney in just a couple of days ago I it would would Marco Rubio.
On this whole thing I mean.
-- -- To the point of parsing words that it rubio took offense to that I didn't mean that but but he.
He was trying to say look it's a short term solution to a longer rumble when I asked him whether he would reverse it.
If he just repeated short term from the long term problem of what do you make about why -- so costs.
What I think that this is a much bigger issue it's not just the the immigration rule that he put into place it's a constitutional issue.
You can't have a senator you can't have a congressman can't ever present -- governor just making up laws Willy Nilly.
And that's that's the problem with this is there was an unconstitutional power grab by the president that needs to be repealed I think that.
Members in the house and the senate on both sides of the -- what what -- -- agree with the actual implementation of it or not should be very concerned about the precedent that this setting.
I don't know does that become president I give you a hell of a lot of credit I mean unlike a lot of your colleagues it's all grow is offensive -- know what -- -- gonna do.
Would you put the belly of the metal so -- little dual credit -- it down it's not the president doing.
I guess what amazes me more about your party congress and I can understand -- you know -- If it's almost like a no win cornered box situation that they.
Feel that goes to Florida strike the president down on this they look unfriendly to Hispanics.
-- year -- Crucially need -- what do you make of that that they don't want to -- off what they think could be.
At least a more potent base for them.
Well I really like to think about not taking off the founders in the constitution how we have a separation of powers.
And -- equal branches of government in the proper way to actually implement.
These types of of legislation rather than having -- -- from from the president and I think that the I think that the governor Romney.
Should be embracing the fact that -- congress is gonna take an action to.
Overturns this because it doesn't mean he's not does that trouble you -- you understand -- -- one.
No I wish that he would I wish that he would stand up and say you know what.
This should be overturned this is not the way that.
Made up our government but he hasn't done that I think he should and I think you should take a strong stance on this.
Get -- there are those who say in the party congress and that is kind of showing.
Maybe it's cost us more moderate stripes on this and that's ticking off a lot of conservatives I don't want to overstate that case but.
You join a growing number of folks who share.
Some of that what what do you make of it.
Well I don't know but that I think that there's governor Romney is you know just getting a sea legs in terms of the into the general election.
I think he's gonna make a great candidate when he's finally nominated he's gonna make a great president when he's finally elected.
But I think that you know when you see these types of things and the president just you know through curve -- and everybody but the curve -- was really eviscerate -- that the constitution.
And the the founding.
Pillars of our society.
And so we need to stand.
Very strong with that and make sure that he's not going to be able to do this and that's what my bill does and I think they've that governor Romney should stand by that want that this repealed.
All right congress and always good to have you on -- -- family.
