Mississippi Governor on CIR

A high-profile Republican has condemned conservatives advocating policies that exploit immigrant labor but oppose comprehensive immigration reform. In an interview, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R-MS), who comes from a state ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, explained that the state would be “way, way, way behind where we are now” if it wasn’t for immigrants — “some of there [who] were here illegally” — that helped to rebuild the state. He went on to say that people should search for “common sense” solutions for undocumented immigration, and that “we’re not going to take 10 or 12 or 14 million people and put them in jail or deport them.”
