If it's Sunday, Raul Labrador must be near a TV camera. The two-term congressman, representing Idaho's 1st Congressional District, will appear—for the seventh time—Sunday, Aug. 25 on NBC's Meet the Press.
During his most recent appearance, just last month, Labrador insisted that unless immigration reform was done right, "It could be the death of the Republican Party."
"If we don't do it right, this is what is going to happen: We're going to lose our base because we're still going to have a large number of illegal immigrants coming into the United States and the Hispanic community is not going to listen to us because they're going to always listen to, at this point, the people who are offering more, that are offering a faster path to citizenship. I think we lose on both grounds if we don't do it right," said Labrador.
Since his last appearance on July 7, Labrador announced that he would not pursue a run to become Idaho's next governor—at least not yet. Instead, Labrador is expected to run for a third term to the U.S. House.
