of the flash points in the republican presidential primary. i think former governor bush if you look at the policy has a far more moderate proposal than someone like trump. mr. bush has written a book on immigration proposals. when you look at 17 candidates running for president, there are some key differences. i think that mr. trump's starts with putting a wall at the boarder and building a wall and having china pay for it. governor bush is looking to take a more moderate approach. we'll see which voters are looking for. >> that's why it's surprising he used the term anchor baby. >> i think rhetoric in particular is something folks will have to look at and make their own decisions. again, i think if you look at people like senator marco rubio, he was a part of that gang of eight. we yesterday rick santorum criticizing senator rubio for being part of that gang.
