Labrador: Immigration Reform A Must

Republican Congressman Raul Labrador said Wednesday that Mitt Romney’s unpopularity among Hispanics was key to his defeat and that Republicans must press for immigration reform or give up on electing a GOP president. “We are never going to be a majority party if we don’t figure out a way to reach out to the Hispanic community,” said Labrador, a native of Puerto Rico re-elected to his second term. “So we have to find a conservative consensus on immigration.” Labrador spoke during a Capitol Hill news conference sponsored by a group he co-chairs, Conversations with Conservatives.
