Congressman Labrador addresses immigration and the national debt

MOSCOW, ID - Today (Thursday) he's here in Lewiston but yesterday Congressman Raul Labrador held a town hall meeting in Moscow.

He answered several questions from the audience regarding fracking, Obamacare, forest management, and the Upper Lochsa land exchange. But the two main audience concerns he addressed were national debt and immigration.

"Immigration is a great thing," said Congressman Labrador. "But like I said earlier, I think we need to do it legally. And that's why I continue to do the work to make sure that we have a modern legal immigration system so that we can all be proud. And especially the people who immigrated the right way."

The congressman also spoke his support for reducing punishment and mandatory sentencing for non-violent drug offenders.
