Top Republican Dick Armey urges immigration reform, saying GOP is all wrong on immigrants


If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of sanity.

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey is urging the Republican party to rethink its attitude on immigration reform.

"Handle it with some sense of compassion and some sense of civility," he said Monday at he National Press Club.

"The Hispanic-American is the most natural-born constituency for the Republican Party since the Black American was in 1965. And these guys are trying to blow it.

"Just do it right... There is room in America. If you love America, if you love freedom, love work, are willing to pay your way, pay your taxes and obey the law, you should be welcome in America."

Sounds perfectly reasonable, no?
