LG: "...everything [to prepare for legalization and citizenship is] done here in the United States of America... security check in the U.S... [they get a] biometric visa... at some point during those six years, the head of the household leaves and comes back... For example, you live in Chicago, travel six hours to Detroit, cross the border into Canada, stopping at a coffee shop and be back home that evening... ...It's really a rebooting, a symbolic gesture..."At that point, Gutierrez starts laughing at "touchback". Unfortunately, right now the joke's on us.
MODERATOR: [How long would they be out of the country?]
LG: [They'd] "stay in canada for an hour"
LG: "There are those who want that symbolic rebooting... [you need to ask Rep. Flake why...] "...Jeff Flake says that in order to get republicans [to sign on they need the touchback...]
MODERATOR: [Does that make any sense?]
