-- pathway to citizenship but does that -- include full amnesty endorse stricter border control to Potomac research group's chief political strategist -- valley -- Greg that is the biggest when -- contention between the parties right the pathway to citizenship.
Yeah I think that's right Laura and I suspect the White House will be more lenient more liberal I think that.
The house in particular will be more conservative but did this is like a locomotive this thing is going to make it the momentum for immigration reform is really.
So what are your thoughts then on what a compromise might look like because to your point we know that the president favors a more lenient policy where Republicans want to close the border.
I think the White House will go along with that I think within reason -- -- agree to a lot of these proposals in this bipartisan.
-- when you get people like Durbin and Schumer a Liberal Democrats going along with something with John McCain and Lindsey Graham.
That's pretty good sign that this will pass easily in the senate I think one of the most intriguing stories this.
The fight for credit I think you're going to be a lot of people headed by Marco Rubio who want to get a lot of this credit.

The economic base and I think at the end of the day this -- wind up as a positive.
Economic story safe to say this'll probably go down as one of the easiest congressional fights in recent memory.
Well with a congress this dysfunctional.
That you get ever say they've got to get -- something that easily there's so incompetent.
And I supposed to could be gridlock -- each party wanting to seek some advantage but.
You got to think this is a pretty easy call that we will get a bill everyone will fight over who gets the credit.
That the but again I think it.
Having a pathway for these people is -- let me add one other thing I think for a lot of big businesses especially tech companies.
A sleeper is H one B visas.
Those H one B visas allow very talented foreigners computer programmers engineers.
To come into the US that's a big story for a company like say at Microsoft.
Listen I think it's a great message for Republicans we know that that Romney did not do as well as -- Republican predecessor George W bush with the Hispanic vote in it was just a landslide in favor of the precedent so that we appreciate your take on -- Great Valley air.
