BORDER PATROL COUNCIL VICE PRESIDENT ON WHAT THAT MEANS. I WOULD IMAGINE AT THE VERY LEAST, ART, IT’S GOING TO MEAN, YOU KNOW, IT BECOMES A VERY POPULAR PLACE TO BE, THE UNITED STATES. IT’S ACTUALLY GOING TO BUILD UP SOME OF THE TENSIONS YOU HAVE BEEN DEALING IN THE PAST AT THE BORDER, RIGHT?>>I MEAN, IT’S ALREADY A POPULAR PLACE. I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW. WE ARE UNDERMANNED, OVERCAPACITY, UNDERBUDGETED AND NOW I GUESS SOME OF THE BUDGET WHEN THESE PEOPLE ARE OFFERING TO GO AHEAD AND GIVE IT TO THE ILLEGAL ALIENS. LISTEN, I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME OF THESE INDIVIDUALS, THEY JUMP INTO THE UNITED STATES, THEY FALL OFF OF A FENCE, WHERE THERE IS FENCING, AND SOME OF THEM GET HURT AND OBVIOUSLY WHEN WE HAVE THEM IN THESE DETENTION FACILITIES, I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, THEY DO RECEIVE MEDICAL CARE. I MEAN, IT’S A GOOD QUESTION. I WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT WHAT EXTRA MEDICAL CARE IT IS THAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT. PERHAPS IT’S THE MANY THAT WE CATCH AND WE RELEASE WILL BE RECEIVING FREE MEDICAL HEALTH CARE. BUT I MEAN, IT IS CONCERNING, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU SEE SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES, YOU KNOW, THAT ARE IN NEED OF SOME CARE THEMSELVES. NEIL: I’M WONDERING NOW WITH THIS MEASURE APPROVED LATE YESTERDAY IN THE HOUSE TO PROVIDE $4.6 BILLION FOR HELPING YOUR GUYS OUT AND HELPING THE KIDS AND MIGRANTS IN GENERAL, ARE YOU CONFIDENT THAT THAT WILL AT LEAST EASE SOME OF THE TENSION AND PROBLEMS AT SOME OF THESE FACILITIES?>>I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY IT’S SOMETHING THAT’S VERY NECESSARY, BUT IT FAILED TO ADDRESS A LOT OF THESE LOOPHOLES THAT CONTINUES TO ALLOW THESE PEOPLE TO COME AND BE RELEASED. THAT’S THE ULTIMATE, YOU KNOW. THERE IS STILL THAT MAGNET. IF YOU STILL HAVE A MAGNET FOR INDIVIDUALS TO BREAK OUR LAWS, THEN THERE IS NO REASON FOR THEM NOT TO CONTINUE BREAKING THE LAW. I THINK THAT’S WHAT’S VERY IMPORTANT. NEIL: WHAT THEY LEFT OUT OF THIS AND THEY THINK THE PRESIDENT, WHENEVER HE DEALS WITH MEXICO AND THE MEXICAN COMMITMENT WILL SETTLE THIS SEPARATELY, USING THIS WAITING PERIOD FOR MIGRANTS TO SORT OF WAIT IT OUT IN MEXICO, NOT THE UNITED STATES. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT PLAN?>>THAT’S ACTUALLY, THAT WOULD BE A HUMONGOUS HELP BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE WE ARE HAVING THE ISSUES. WE ARE HAVING THESE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE COMING ACROSS, THEY ARE CLAIMING ASYLUM, THEY ARE BEING RELEASED WITHIN THE UNITED STATES, AND WE ARE NEVER HEARING FROM THEM AGAIN. THAT IS THE MAJOR PROBLEM. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT WE CONTINUE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT, THAT’S SOMETHING THAT IS A BIG ISSUE. SO HAVING THEM WAIT IN THE COUNTRY WHERE THEY CAME THROUGH, THAT ONLY MAKES SENSE. IF THEY ARE SEEKING ASYLUM FROM THEIR COUNTRY AND MEXICO IS SAYING YOU’RE OKAY TO BE HERE, AND IT’S OBVIOUS BECAUSE THEY ALLOW THEM TO TRAVEL THROUGH THEIR COUNTRY, THEN I DON’T SEE WHAT THE ISSUE WOULD BE FOR THEM TO WAIT THERE AND AT LEAST WE WOULD HAVE SOME TYPE OF CONTROL AND NOT JUST RELEASE THEM INTO THE UNITED STATES AND NEVER HEAR FROM THEM. THAT SEEMS TO BE THE BIGGEST PROBLEM. NEIL: YOU WOULD KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS THAN I DO BUT A NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS I HAVE HAD ON THE SHOW HAVE SAID THIS ARGUMENT THAT THEY DON’T SHOW UP FOR FOLLOW-UP IS ACTUALLY WRONG, THAT 60% OF THEM ULTIMATELY DO. VIRTUALLY 100% HAVE TO SHOW UP FOR THE FIRST IMMEDIATE HEARING, WHERE IT IS ADJUDICATED, THE SECOND HEARING IF THERE WERE MORE JUDGES TO ADJUDICATE THESE CASES, WHETHER THEY BE AT THE BORDER OR IN THIS COUNTRY, SO IS IT AS BIG A PROBLEM AS IT’S BEEN PRESENTED?>>LET ME EXPLAIN THE WAY IT WORKS. THE FIRST INITIAL APPEARANCE, THEY HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO SHOW UP BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL IN CUSTODY. I MEAN, THERE WOULD BE NO WAY FOR THEM TO EVADE IT. THEY ARE STILL IN OUR CUSTODY. BUT AFTER THAT, THAT IS WHERE THE PROBLEMS ARE. ONCE WE RELEASE THEM BECAUSE WE CAN’T DETAIN THEM IN OUR FACILITIES, AND THAT IS DEFINITELY A PROBLEM. YOU KNOW, LIKE I SAID, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICAL PARTIES IN THE END. YOU ARE VOTED ON AS A POLITICIAN TO SERVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND I THINK THAT SHOULD BE YOUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY, THE GOOD OLD UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. NEIL: ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY RIGHT ABOUT THAT. QUIT PLAYING POLITICS, GET SOMETHING DONE.
