Illegals keep flooding of the US -- our people to do and how are they to react. You know I think we do you have to reform the system we have to think about and a broader perspective. I did -- get to keep the current flow in perspective I think that there is an emergency situation and that it is sort of unique and we -- he's looking for Weathers the Haitian interdiction. Earlier on this were Cuban migration to come as sort of distinct patterns. I think the mistake would be to treat a very distinct situation. As sort of the general baseline and build a rules around that do you think that there is a general rule that we have to develop. We have to think carefully about all the different considerations involved. President Obama said this week and without congress he's gonna go it alone honest with executive action what can he deal. In this situation there's actually very little because interestingly enough a lot of the complications or because of congressional enactments and the law.

And trying to come up with one plan that covers the entire country would this help with a farmer holds the visa and then migrant worker. I think there's some dangers to the farmer actually holding the visa depending on we mean were aware. Congressman Collins -- by holding these. There's all these concerns of exportation when it comes to an employer actually having damage control of it actually -- the proposals recently in trying to get rid of the exploitation which actually then leads on doctor migrants to be more. Let's say desirable in some ways for employers who want to exploit. To take those powers out of employers have little undocumented. Immigrant overstayed his visa. Who would then goes after this undocumented immigrant. So right now we do have a system's interior enforcement but it's not very good. And in some ways the visa system itself the way it's setup have there been more regulations. From -- agencies -- would be a good way of keeping and I am unfortunately those have been under.
