prle tu itorr nht at 8:00 here from the white house where i will be making this announcement. and then i will see the high school on friday. host: that is the president's announcement on facebook. here to talk specifics on what toxpect tonight, michael shear is the white house correspondent r the "new york times." you talked about how the president is going to treat the 4 million or so people who are your illegally. what iin the plans for them? the majority of those are undocumented immigrants, people who are here illegally, but have a connection to somebody who is here illegally. most likely in most cases it would be a child who is a u.s. citizen -- to somebody who is .ere legally most likely in most cases it would be a child was a u.s.
7:04 am
citizen. if you aren't undocumented immigrant and have a can -- if you are an undocumented immigrant and have a connection like that, you have to have lived here for five years or more and you cnot be a criminal. if you beat those criteria, you can get -- meet those criteria, you can get a permit and live here legally. and there are others that might get some protection. how will that happen? guest: what we think that ll include are a couple of things. there's the smaller group of what they call dreamers, the ildren who are living here in the country illegally and mother were brought here children, some engine as one or two years old. brought here as young children, some as young as one or two years old. there is a litation on that program and what the president will announce is aexpansion to include more people. that is one group.
7:05 am
and then there is another group of people who are spouses or other family members, of folks who are here legally. maybe you are a u.s. citizen and you've married somebody or you've had a relationship in some other way with somebody who's not legal. there have been restrictions o how many of those people could become legal and what it would take to do so. the president is going to ease those restrictions to allow more people to become legal. the entire thing is premised on the idea that what you want to avoid is deporting somebody that is part of an established family in the united states. you don't want to pick up falies. that is whathe president is trying to do. host: you also spell up mate -- people who may not b cered anyou point out form worrs. y would th fall de another type ogrp?ue: nelly sakg,f uon't

8:22 am
talking, you know, decades. eyotfr calirnia. te est veenri on t committee. op vw him as aar worker heid l of work fhe on the house for sort of administrative,ort of administrative type position, and people just couldn't see a reason why he should be passed over. usually these things are decided by a secretive committee, and eschoo won that vote. but pallone had a note from more than 50 membe of the caucus saying that it should be brought up to a full vote. and in the vote, pallone won. so, you know, one memr told my colleague that, you know, pelosi was maybe a little bit too strident in trying to get echoo here. there was this embarrassing flap where, you know, a war
8:23 am
veteran, congresswoman was -- who's now pregnant s denied a vote in absentia because she would have supported pallone. and this made it all the way to "the daily show" and, you know, it became sort of embarrassg. i think that's an example of how people believe pelosi kind of overplayed her nd here with a little bit too forceful in this. she's been a very strong leader in the past, and she has gotten her way on a lot of things. when she wants to get something done, look at the affordable care act, for instance. working lg nights, you know, butt holing people, getting them on boorksd making deals. it's rare for her to lose, you know, a priority like this, but people are frustrate in the democratic caucus right now.
8:24 am
a lot of the people in there believe that the message of the election that they tried to put out there didn't work. they just got drubbed, and they wanted some sort of, you know, change in leadership. of course, there's nobody who would challenge pelosi. she brings thexperience of fundraising and so many other things to the table, but, you know,aybe here they express their dissatisfaction a little bit, al bee the ainst eshoo, but against pelosi. host: how much of a direct hand would saker baner and nancy pelosi have in getting o they want? guest: in the republican steering committee, it's made up of top committee chairmen, leadership, representatives from regional places and then representatives from the different classes, you know, freshmen, sophomore, so on and so forth. boehner gets five votes just himself. and then, of course, he's the speaker. he kind of controls, if you
8:25 am
will, the votes of his top allies on there. it's rare for a speaker, if it's strictly string committee, to not have his priorities go through. and, you know, we were talking earlier, and that was kind of -- that was kind of in there, a lot of people thought, you know, years ago that thornberry was better suited to handle the armed services committee, but buck mckeon got it, a lot by virtue of his close relationship with boehner. in the democratic steering committee, eshoo won. if it was just up to that, she would be the ranking member heading into the congress. because it went to a full caucus vote, pallone ended up winning. host: mike from north carolina, independt line. go ahead. caller: yeah, i have a question. can you tell me specifically what the republican congress
8:26 am
objects to that's within the immigration bill passed by the senate? it seems to me that two of them is that we already have an immigration policy, but i'd like to know specifically wh items the republicans object to that's in the senate bill, and also specifically what items would they agree with. guest: well, their main priority, and they've said this again and again, has been border security. they want, you know, maybe more funding, more agents, you kn, all kinds of stuff like. the thing that has been most contentious has been providing a pathway to lalized status for migrants who have already en living here. you remember it was part of the executive action that's supposed to give some sort of legalized status to families of
8:27 am
people who are, you know, within the purview of the dream act. so, you know, that has been something republican constituencies around the country do not want, and democrats, i think, are not willing to accept that immigration reform policy that has anything less than that. gerning that's been the biggest point of contentious, and to see how that gets handled at times will be very interesting. host: from florida, chuck, democrats line. caller: daniel, i don't think they would object to yo getting down to what i surmise being the great-grandson of slaves, and to see how've been successful in knowing how to deal with the various types of personality such as religious rights and the social conservative. it seemed to me they use all of these code wds, and the plan reagan and the plan that
8:28 am
they had prior to reagan when they took over the republican the , the democrats left -- certain democrats left the blue dogs, or for lack of a better word, and got into the republican par for a purpose and a plan, and that 50-year plan didn't work. everything that f.d.r. seout to do, they thought they would do it, but they didn't use compassion and compromise. you know, these were the things that they should have focused on, because what if things didn't work out. and they consistently kept going, so they're going now kicking, rning and kicking. guest: sure. there are certainly voices within the democratic party who want democrats to, you know, be more progressive, more liberal, and act policies that they had run on before. you brought up an interesting point, the blue dogs. there aren't very many of those left anymore. these blue dogs, for those who don't know, are, you know,

generally southern, more moderate to conservative democrats. there were a lot of them when democrats had the majority in the house. ere are not almost any now. if you look at the southern map, it's almost exclusively republican, especially in rural areas. that, you know, makes the task of achieving the majority for democrats a lot tougher. host: the name of california republican darryl issa always associated with the governmen oversight affairs committee. there's a new face coming. guest: pretty outspoke known his conservative. , a very good communicator. he's viewed as charismatic, maybe best known for leg wrestlg stephen colbert on "the colbert report." and he ran hard for this one. it wasn't easy. it was a close race between
8:30 am
michael turner, who did have more seniority on the committee ,, you know, he ought not run the committee much differently than issa. i would expe some investigations, and so i think he'll carry on that legacy. host: revisiting efforts on >> i cannot imagine those going away. benghazi h its own committee. imagine in the last two years of obama's administration, investigations will open up some of the things. host: we will talk about leadership roles and greenville, rhode island, next. good morning.
8:31 am
caller: we ought to do three things. deport the criminals. putting -- on immigration. to bypass the legislation is wrong and does not follow the rule of law. i also think -- i we through the process myself. i think it is the beautiful of the country that has welcomed everybody but the right way. every house has a door. every country has should have a gate. did you spend and how much did you spend on becoming a citizen? caller: i came from syria. there was a lot of scrutiny in my application. it took me over 15 year
8:32 am
it is a long process. it makes my heart. it took a lot of effort and a lot of money. the press by itself spent about $2000. the mailbox for the letter of approval, at was a loof work. finally, i became an arican citizen. it is worth theffort, but the process i went through, we need scrutiny, medical exams, to make sure new citizens love this country and so forth. guest: the scrutiny that he mentioned, it is something that republicans who do wana pathway to citizenship agree
8:33 am
with. you have to think tt if anything gets passed along the lines, it willnclude those kinds of provisions. >> -- host: could they become piecemeal efforts when it comes to taking over all of immigration? you have to think that is nogoing to be the way it is going to get done. the president has been very -- and his opposition to piecemeal. mocrats are suspicious if we go along with the border thing, what is to say the legalized status ring will follow? republicans may pass some sort
8:34 am
.f piecemeal they have a border security bill that have been working on. other provisions are floating around. there already voices in the republican conference asking for mething like that. is some type of plan did arise, what would it look like to get the president's approval? he was pretty supportive of the senate bill. i do not see it happening. it is hard to say what he would accept and what he would want and what would be passable. the two sides of
8:35 am
the two parties are so far apart may not have any common ground on it. caller: i have two queions -- isn't it better to bring these people into the light, this way they pay into social security, medicare, have taxes taken out, instead of working for someone making two dla or the dollars an hour. they are here. there going to work. we will be ongal, an even basis. my next question is -- with ted cruz, we made a big deal about certificate, but ted cruz is born in the country, how can he run for president? the first point is an
8:36 am
argument for executive action, or if there is some philosophical objection to the president doi this unilaterally, that is an argument for some legalized status. the second point, i am not sure how cruz is going to navigate that. i believe he was born to american parents in canada, so th may be a ophole. host: one more call. thank you for c-span. watch it often -- i often. massachusetts just lost a race. i am trying to figure out, back to immigration, money is buying elections. citizens united guys have to go away. i love all people, republicans,
8:37 am
crazies, as far as they want to go right, i still love them. please, stop buying the elections. est: right after the electn, chris van hollen came out an said we need to do something out campaign finan reform. priority of his for a long time. they do not believe ople should be limited in their spending. money is speech. people should be able to get to campaigns freely. host: daniel, talking about band covering 114 congress, plus the president's reaction.
