You know who these children are and what it will mean to their lives many of them are Americans through and through the I don't know anything out cinch. And and I can get he probably. Feel that he wants. The congress to come up with a solution. But he had to go through with his campaign promise. And in terms of of the dinner last night and I know that somebody came on board but you know you've been in politics a little bit and do you think part of it is that in your opinion he might be learning that. You know it's compromise she got a wine and dine you had a wheel and deal in order to get anything done in politics. He may be. But you do would you not agree is that part of on the on and trying to convict anybody understand how as part of politics or. Actually you know he may agent pat such.

Is there pragmatic side of this is well as honoring the men and women who do deserve. So much our appreciation in terms of may be helping with the recruiting that are helping with retention of officers. Even though they aren't here intent. Right right and that it would and the you know last year we bowed out. It would. In the French Quarter rejection squares cat blue ribbons rich so all the tourists and people act skiing. On the businesses lack why it would probably. And they really need an easy. When they found out that we were having an appreciation day for our officers though. There are a lot of church to a deal going common thing telling you know what they were doing there. So that that's really cool and nobody am I like that thought.
