They're basically. Key guiding principles number one it's an economic security issue in a national security -- of the status quo simply is unsustainable. If the immigration bill can pass in the US House of Representatives I think it's fair to say that Paul Ryan hopes to be. Thank you voice in the immigration debate. We've had plenty of waves of immigration that have always been met with resistance in the past but we have a system that here's the rule of law if we have a system that we are facing competence and this is system that we can regenerate ourselves and get. Our economy. What's been sort of a game changers report showing that these. Immigration bill would help lower the deficit and give a boost the economy right has been the face of the Republican effort. To reduce the deficit this is what Paul Ryan has been all about as chairman of the house budget committee to the speaker of the house John Boehner. Paul Ryan's got Boehner is blessing to hold of difficulties of listening sessions where the small group of house Republicans get together and Paul Ryan's been attending these sessions -- the -- or. Immigration reform Ryan has been out of favour of the Tea Party. Simply because he's led the charge on reducing the size of government generally -- and Tea Party as opposed the immigration reform. The Tea Party don't like it pathway to citizenship they appear that it. It would amount to amnesty for lawbreakers and just bring in. Attract more illegal immigrants but the Paul -- of the mind that the pathway to citizenship. Would help make undocumented immigrants a productive part of the American way of life. I would I would debate anybody who tries to suggest that these ideas that are moving through congress our industry they're not. Amnesty is wiping the slate clean and not paying -- not paying any penalty for having done something wrong nobody suggesting that that takes place. This could take is almost fifteen years of a person aspires to become a citizen and say what we're looking looking at in the house that is not in this. And Paul Ryan has also pragmatic. And he sees the economic good of comprehensive immigration reform right now you have up to eleven million undocumented immigrants that's a lot of people not paying taxes. -- can make the case if you pass the bill they would immediately receive temporary legal status. And they golfers are intact and that's a lot of money right there. Last election Hispanics voted 71%. For Obama over Romney and Paul Ryan. If he's gonna run again for higher office is gonna wanna be elected Hispanic votes. So that's that's an incentive for mr. trying to step up and help on that front.
