Assign a custom value to a variable

I'm writing a script in python that will get retrieve a custom fields for each issue in a project. I'm trying to assign a custom field to a variable. Here's the code. 

proj_queries = jac.search_issues(data)for i in proj_queries:                               
                issue = jira.issue(  
				A-Ticket = issue.fields.customfield_10616

But it will return the following error at the third line in the code. 

SyntaxError: can't assign to operator

I've tried wrapping in String and integer objects but it will return the same error.

I found the solution. In python making a variable with '_' is not allowed. I changed proj_queries to proj-queries.

So I figured out the command print(issue.fields.customfield_10616) will print the value. It's just assigning it to variable is the problem.
