National Review Editor: Republicans Who Advocate Legalizing Immigrants ‘Should Be Shot,’ ‘Hanged’

National Review Editor Rich Lowry said at a recent immigration forum in Washington, D.C., that some Republicans who champion the legalization of undocumented immigrants “should be shot” and “hanged.”

The forum took place Thursday at the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank.

Lowry said the Republican Party cannot claim to support American workers if they also advocate legalizing unskilled workers currently in the U.S. illegally.

“The next time I hear a Republican strategist or Republican politician say that there are jobs that Americans won’t do,” Lowry said, “that person should be shot, he should be hanged, he should be wrapped in a carpet and thrown in the Potomac River.”

Lowry, a generally nice man, was presumably being hyperbolic and doesn’t actually believe in lynching his fellow Republicans.
