Ugh… Paul Ryan: It’s “Crucial” That Republicans Deliver on Immigration Reform
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) spoke at birthday party fundraiser for Gov. Terry Brandstad (R-IA) on Saturday.
The former Vice Presidential candidate told the Des Moines register that it was “crucial” for Republicans to deliver on immigration reform.
The Des Moines Register reported:
Former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan thinks Republicans need to take their limited-government message to voters who are “unfamiliar with hearing us.”
“Go into inner cities, go into minority communities,” Ryan, who speaks in Iowa tonight, told The Des Moines Register in a telephone interview on Monday. “Go into communities that have not seen or heard from Republicans in a long time.”
Ryan, a congressman from Wisconsin, was responding to a question about whether lessons can be learned from Republican wins in blue states, like Gov. Chris Christie’s victory in the governor’s race in Democratic-leaning New Jersey on Nov. 5…
…Ryan, who concentrates most heavily on budget issues, told the Register his focus right now is on finding common ground in Congress on taxes and spending. He also thinks it’s crucial that Republicans deliver on immigration reform and talk about alternatives to the federal health care law known as Obamacare.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) spoke with a Hispanic audience in July about his motives for pushing immigration reform in the House of Representatives.
