Lowry: Some GOP Immigration Advocates Should Be ‘Shot’ And ‘Hanged’

Rich Lowry, editor of the National Review and Fox contributor, said during an immigration panel discussion on Thursday that Republicans who say Americans won’t do certain jobs, should be “shot” and “hanged.”

His statement on how to handle such Republicans was met with applause and laughter.

“The next time I hear a Republican strategist or a Republican politician say that there are jobs that Americans won’t do, that person should be shot, he should be hanged, he should be wrapped in a carpet and thrown in the Potomac River,” Lowry said. “You know that’s what they did to Rasputin, I think it was a different river. But let me tell you, it worked.”
