"That immigrant culture that has renewed www.louisvuitonbagshop.com us ... has been at the core of our strength," she said, according to the The Raleigh News & Observer. "I don't know when immigrants became the enemy."
Rice has long lamented the Bush administration's failure to address comprehensive immigration reform during two terms in office, a disappointment that she reportedly reiterated on Tuesday.
In 2009, she called the lack of action louis vuitton men shoes one of her "biggest regrets."
"America has always been able to attract the most ambitious people who are determined to have a better life," Rice said during an appearance at Stanford University, where she currently teaches. "If we ever lose that and start to believe that somehow that it is instead a threat to us to have those people come here, we are going to lose one of the strongest elements of not just monster turbine our national wealth, but of our national soul."
She has also spoken out on the need to get undocumented immigrants out of the "shadows," and last year issued a warning about Alabama's controversial immigration enforcement law.
“I think we need to be really careful about what kind of laws we pass and that, in the effort to get a handle on this problem, we don’t end up making the problem worse,” she told Alabama's Press-Register, after claiming that inaction at the federal level was catalyzing such measures. "The fact is that, generally speaking, this patchwork approach is not serving us well and we adjustable hats need to find a better solution. State laws are just not going to do it."
Cantor has been talking to individual Republicans in his conference -- some are allies, some are running in competitive primaries -- to appease them after what sources say was a staff error last month that resulted in Cantor inadvertently cutting a large check to the Campaign for Primary Accountability, an anti-incumbent super PAC.
As the story goes, sources close to Cantor maintain that he didn't know he was giving money to the Campaign for Primary Accountability when he kicked in $25,000, at the request of Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.), to help freshman Rep. Adam Kinzinger defeat veteran Rep. Don Manzullo in the GOP primary by matching Schock's donation. The two Illinois Republicans ended up in the same district after congressional redistricting.
"On Thursday, March 15, 2012, Leader Cantor was asked by snapbacks Congressman Schock to contribute to an organization that was supporting Adam Kinzinger in the Illinois election of March 20. EricPAC [the PAC supporting Cantor] subsequently made a contribution with the understanding that those funds would be used only in the effort to support Congressman Kinzinger. Leader Cantor does not support the actions of this organization in any other election," Ray Allen, a political consultant for Cantor, said in a statement.
The breakdown in communication occurred at the staff level, the sources told The Huffington Post, as people at Cantor's political action committee -- the Every Republican is Crucial (Eric) PAC -- failed to properly vet the Campaign for Primary Accountability before sending over the louis vuitton handbags check. From there, the $25,000 went into a general pool of money used by the anti-incumbent super PAC for its campaign efforts.
Campaign for Primary Accountability spokesman Curtis Ellis said the group didn’t get any word of Cantor's check and wasn't told it was supposed to be earmarked specifically for the Manzullo-Kinzinger race. As such, the funds were spread around and used in other primary races in which the gucci handbags group has been running campaigns.
"We didn't know beforehand that Eric was sending money to be used against Manzullo. Had he told us, we would have said, 'Great, send it over,'" Ellis said. "We're happy to
gucci bags accept donations from anyone, with the donation that they give being dedicated to specific races."
