Hispanic GOP Congressman Says Jeb Bush Pandering, Doesn’t Respect “Rule Of Law”

During the Heritage Foundation’s monthly “Conversation with Conservatives” meeting with right-of- center Republican congressmen on Capitol Hill, a reporter asked the panel to opine on Jeb Bush’s recent “act of love” comment regarding immigration reform.

Utah congressman Raul Labrador (R), who pulled out of the House bipartisan immigration reform effort, said he disagreed with Bush’s comments, and added that “Comments like Jeb Bush’s and other Republicans, what they do is pandering to a certain group of people.”

Whenever you trivialize the fact that these people have broken the law, I think your message is a little bit off.-Rep. Raul Labrador

Labrador says he wants to address immigration reform in a way that will let Americans know that members of Congress understand the importance of national sovereignty and of being a US citizen.

They are leaving their own nations because, their own nations have no respect for the rule of law, and what people like Jeb Bush and others are saying is that “we also will have no respect for the rule of law, and then we will be turned into the nations that these people are leaving.”

Labrador also warned that if immigration reform is passed in the House “like some Republicans in the conference want to do, they (Hispanics) will not vote Republican.”

The American people, especially Hispanics Americans, are going to vote for the Republican Party, because they feel that our party is providing more opportunity, is providing a better way of life for themselves.-Rep. Raul Labrador (R)
