Idaho Republican Congressman Raul Labrador appeared on an immigration panel Thursday, the opening of the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.
A 5-minute clip of Labrador is available on the congressman’s YouTube page.
Spokesman Michael Tate also release quotes from the talk, which follow:
“One area we as conservatives need a grander vision on is the way forward to reforming and modernizing our immigration system.”
“We’re a country where there are no barriers to success and no boundaries to achieving our full potential. It doesn’t matter who you were born as, or who you were born to. Your dreams have a chance. That’s attracted people here from around the world to live and build a better life.”
“It’s time our immigration system pushed us into the future, not held us back.”
“Our conservative principles are eternal… limited government, personal responsibility, and a strong commitment to free enterprise and liberty.”
“We have ideas that work. We have ideas that can win. We just have to work to make that happen.”
