WATCH: Arizona State Senator Kimberly Yee Tells RNC "To Wrap Our Arms... Around Comprehensive Immigration Reform", and To Get More Asian Americans

Arizona State Senator Kimberly Yee (R-LD20) participated in a nationally-televised panel of young, women "rising stars" in the Republican party yesterday.  She told the RNC (Republican National Committee) and the C-Span TV audience that the Republican party "needs to wrap our arms carefully, diligently, around comprehensive immigration reform."

She did not echo the view that is being expressed by several GOP U.S. House members in recent days that they support a path to legalization but not citizenship, but she made a plea for the House "to please listen to the border states; hear us out."

The theme of the panel was how the GOP needs to reach out to women and minorities.  In that vein, Yee's opening statement was about how Asian Americans need to see more people like themselves in the party and on the convention floor (Yee was a delegate in 2008).  She noted that Asian Americans should be in her party, and noted that they are "highly educated... higher wage earners, and for the most part they own their own businesses."

Yee was asked about to talk about her effective use of pro-life messages to resonate with voters.  She talked about how she had sponsored the struck-down Arizona 20-week ban bill that the U.S. Supreme Court declined to reconsider this month, and how the pro-life bills are the ones"that tug(s) at my heart strings."

Clicking on the picture above will bring you to the entire panel discussion.  The links below are to the four times that Sen. Yee had the microphone.
