-- like a lot of states across this -- border states dealing with major budget -- officials say the -- tied to illegal immigration issues.
Have stretched the state budgets and tax payers even further.
Governor temporary signing a tough new immigration -- sparking protests and threats of boycotts.
But it was also a law that more than 7% of her constituents want it so what's -- governor to do what's asked what Pennsylvania's democratic governor Ed Rendell joining us now on Fox Business well first of all governor.
Arizona law is a lot of people have problems with a but.
The cost of illegal immigration particularly for for states like Arizona like California for -- are just exorbitant.
The medical charts a loan to drive it state bankrupt right.
Well -- do sympathize with governor Barbour and the Arizona legislature it's the reason why we need federal immigration legislation.
This is a problem that can't be solved by individual states when they try to solve -- they -- bad legislation like this legislation.
It's got to be solved on a federal basis and federal government's got to step up and help alleviate some of these problem.
Small headed to a governor do you build of by another wall in Arizona do you have an Ellis Island type processing center built on the border.
What is the Federalist response and I appreciate what you're saying this been terribly lacking here you're quite right about now.
And it's been everybody's responsibility for this and most -- congress because President Bush gave him enormous amount -- credit.
He wanted to solve this problem.
And get the congress would respond.
We need to step up -- border control is no question about that.
But we need a workable guest -- statute in my judgment that is the key to making this this this all work in the future and down the line.
It's the key to controlling costs we we need to do this in a rational way ironically as you know David list.
-- -- influx of workers has gone down because of our economy being so bad there -- jobs available.
For anybody so that it's been a temporary solution -- the problem.
But we need a good guest -- -- we need stepped up presence on the border.
We need a combination.
Of things but look.
The law makes no sense it's an infringement on basic American rights you have Karl Rove and Tom Tancredo saying it does make sense you've got the sheriff of Pima County.
Courageously saying that it's a bed.
A piece of legislation for law enforcement officials and he's not gonna enforce it.
So it's already chaos they should repeal the law and emphasize to the federal government that this is a problem that we -- to take care of others.
-- they agree with you on -- federal government.
Getting stepping up to the plate but two thirds of the people -- Arizona are for this loss how you gonna repeal it.
When you have 60% of the population of favorite.
Well and taken to coordinate the courts throw that is unconstitutional.
I understand that may not happen because of the emotions I understand because emotions people support it.
But that was -- excuse that was used when we put Japanese Americans essentially in prison camps during World War II.
That the American people were uniformly behind that.
-- there's sometimes in government the you've got to do tough things and sometimes tough things means -- constituents.
Know this is what you want.
It's not the right thing to do.
And our Latino citizens by and large.
Are great citizens and they don't deserve a law like this.
It's a direct slap in the face of Latinos.
It's a direct slap in the face to fundamental American rights so I think we've got to press hard for federal solution noticing.
Was never job and I think Latinos that actually agree that you do not want criminals coming into one of the states the United States.
And doing what's happening in Arizona yes civil libertarians are right to say that look -- Who gets to define what is suspicion but there's another -- that came up you know you had some negative comments about the Tea Party years and now we have the protests.
And Arizona how your remarks about the Tea Party you're square with what's going on with the protests in Arizona.
Well first of all understand I believe the Tea Party years have every right to him to do anything they want and basically to say anything they want this is America.
But I think they've been given too much credit for.
Starting this movement.
This movement started because people lost there for one case lost their jobs lost -- more -- their faith and our values governor right well monitor I agree but the Tea Party is -- -- rallied against the health care bill.
The week before was voted on got a thousand people in Washington.
When they rallied on -- state got 15100 people in Washington.
So I just -- Brown's opponent governor.
But that Scott Brown didn't lose -- didn't we all that I know I asked a lot of able.
-- a lot to do with his wedding and -- -- David I could if I called rally in Washington for stronger laws to protect puppies I get a 100000.
People she gives -- Guys can't get.
How come these guys can't get people of their rallies that's the test of whether there's a real movement is that disaster -- they -- the election box governor I mean that's I don't tell isn't it.
Look people are angry and they go to the polls and vote against incumbents -- vote against Democrats if angry Democrats but.
That doesn't mean they're part of the Tea Party movement that means they're angry and the Tea Party -- the real test of the movement is how many people you can bring to a rally.
Horror are and what happens to develop I -- -- -- Elizabeth.
And -- is not attributable to enact their own version of term limits that the -- -- good to see you governor governor Ed Rendell greatest thanks very much we'll get a break.
