Immigration Quote of the Week: Sarah Palin
"Let me address legal immigration and we need to continue to be so welcoming and inviting of those who are represented there by our Statue of Liberty. The immigrants, of course, built this country. And I think republicans, conservatives are at fault when we allow the other side to capture this immigration issue and try to turn this issue into something negative for republicans. I think we need to recognize that again, immigrants built this great country. There are rules to follow if you want to be a part of this great country. Let's make sure people are following the rules. But let's welcome this."
- Former Alaska Governor, 2008 Republican vice president nominee and Fox News contributor, Sarah Palin, on "The Glenn Beck Program." Palin has said she supports a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, which has caused problems with conservatives who strongly oppose amnesty of any kind.
