I have no idea what you are talking about

On the day that Rick Santorum filed to be on the NH ballot, Olivia asked him about the immigrant detention quota. "I have no idea what you're talking about," the former Senator said.

Olivia met up with Rick Santorum at the State House in Concord on the day he filed his official papers to put his name on the NH Primary ballot.  Here's a transcript:

Olivia: Senator Santorum, I am really concerned about a provision in our federal budget that incarcerates 34,000 immigrants every day and it’s been lobbied for by corporations that profit from locking up and incarcerating these people.

Santorum: I have no idea.

Olivia: Do you think we need to change our immigration laws...

Santorum: I have no idea what you are talking about, I do not know what provision you’re talking about.

Olivia: It incarcerates 34,000 immigrants a day.

Santorum: For what reason?  I don't know the provision, so I can't answer if I don't know the details of what this provision calls for.
