undocumented that they will, they must leave the country as a part of his plan. that seems to have been pretty stable in our conversations with him. but now it seems to be shifting. why is that? >> actually he is not, john. he is pretty consistent. and immigration is a complex issue. so if i may, just talk about the, the six, seven, tenets of his plan. i will address your question. first there is still no amnesty. second, building theal third, we have to end the sanctuary cities. next, he said that he will enforce the law. a novel concept in washington, d.c. where they like to layer law on law and never enforce what we have. he also has said that for 11 million if that in fact is the number, he wants to address that issue, humanely and fairly. those were his word. he also said that thee wants to
the question is what to do. he has said if you want to beep here legally, you have to apply to be here legally. we all learned in kindergarten to stand in line. wait our turn. not talking deportation force. he is talking about being fair and humane, but also being fair to the american workers who are competing for jobs. being fair to us who want secure borders and law enforced. >> if the law is to be enforced. 11 million here illegally. enforcing the law would have them leave. how do they leave? self-deport. or its there a deportation force or something that helps them leave the country immediately as he previously said he would look to see happen? >> that's really the question here, john. he has to deal with, those agencies and those individuals already responsible for this who aren't doing the job. nobody enforcings the law the way he wants to enforce the law. he would work with law enforcement. immigration. immigration agencies.
