Well I think illegal immigration is a serious problem and it's something that costs American taxpayers and American citizens a tremendous amount in resources. When you look at health care, you look at cost of education; you look at cost of law enforcement, all those things are -- represent a tremendous amount of money that gets spent. And frankly when you look at the financial situation of the federal government, money that we can't spare. It's money that we cannot spare. So, it must be addressed; the federal government has a horrible track record of dealing with it in terms of the earlier amnesty programs that have been granted and then you look at the total negligence from which it has tried to address the problems and it has not gotten done and I think it is a great cost to our people. I think the first thing we have to do and I have done this in the legislature, in the state legislature, is we have to enforce the laws that we have on the books and to the extent that the state can do state and local law enforcement can be useful in enforcing those laws, finding those people and sending them back to Mexico or wherever they come from. I think that's -- deportation is something that we have to focus on. I also think building the -- finishing the fence across the border is extremely important. I think that border security is a major issue that we have to deal with. I have not seen the proposal to try to use the court system -- try to balance out the reapportionment or redistricting, but I certainly think its something worth considering because obviously that would not be fair in Virginia.
