Arizona congressman net David weicker has introduced a bill that would block -- -- -- Obama's immigration policy.
Question is can it work congressman Parker joins me now and -- congressman.
Your first term.
-- -- because you've got you've got an MBA you were the county treasurer miracle -- county so your financial guide.
Does this however the politics of Washington.
Will it hurt or help Republicans.
By going against the president's.
Changing of the rules.
Yeah it's brilliant question and I'm not sure I can tell you know.
What has been fascinating -- the phone calls and emails to the office.
I get folks that say look we support this but -- -- the conceptually but we can't stand the way the president did it.
So you get some folks is -- what we want some sort of DREAM Act but we wanted to follow the constitution.
So I think the public is being Smart enough to sort of understand.
This really is an election year stunt.
By this president.
Will the president be on the sell it.
Far will the public start understand this is really sidestepping the constitution.
Well I commend you for for standing up because I think congress is -- talking to senator -- I think congress'.
Quickly getting emasculated by the executive branch and so on -- -- happy and I'm glad you are but.
If -- you don't if I was a 25 year old and illegal and I didn't.
Been brought here by my parents in the I don't think I would come out of the shadows because this is only a two year deal.
Yet another administration can reverse and so why would I expose myself when this is kind of a little.
Temporary cap -- some time.
Tom Tom you brilliant you've hit the point this is Peter.
This is absolutely political Peter.
If you actually lay out what the president ordered to Department of Homeland Security is which is just they don't enforce this portion of the law for a couple years.
With these mechanics.
Even the activist community even the open borders community.
Should be outraged.
Because of the law of unintended consequences here for two years if -- thirty years old -- -- -- but if you're 2911.
Months you are eligible.
If you drop -- a high school you're not eligible but if you went to trade school you're still not eligible.
The cascade of unintended consequences here is disasters.
And if this president really forget my language -- a damn about this issue.
He -- -- walked across the mall.
Visited -- like Marco Rubio and said.
Let's actually follow the constitution and work out a real.
Legislative constitutional solution which your bill gonna say what to -- -- -- and are you gonna get a -- Look -- hidden actually stunned.
At the overwhelming support that's coming in for -- piece legislation.
And conceptually very simple.
It basically says he can't spend money Homeland Security to avoid following the law and we tried to write something.
That was even more than just this issue but would actually move around a series of subjects in this area because this White House.
Has a history now.
This is a pattern.
Whether it be the executive order that you saw this last week.
Or this game from a week ago avoiding following the law and immigration.
This White House keeps trying to go around congress we're trying to lock down department Homeland Security to follow the law right well it's -- be that the data watch the battle.
And I and I again I commend you because congress doesn't need to.
It's been going on for a -- that the -- executive branch gonna run roughshod over the over the legislative branch so.
Tom I've heard you actually speak about this come on other days.
About these sort of imperial presidency.
And if you can have a balance of power has the constitution saw on our founding fathers and you'll wish for.
We in congress need to stand up and go to battle.
We wish you well congressman David -- good thank you for joining us back.
