Let me begin by paying a real tribute to Luis Gutiérrez. He is, in my 58 years of experience, probably the most passionate advocate for his cause, which is the rights of immigrants in this country. I’ve had Luis Gutiérrez to my home for dinner. I’ve learned a lot from him. I’ve seen the passion and enthusiasm; this man believes in what he works so hard for, not as a matter of politics but because he believes it in his heart. I’ll never forget I had Luis over to dinner one night with my wife here in Washington to talk about immigration reform. Luis is very effective. The next day, my wife, not me, my wife receives a really nice bowl of flowers with a note: “Dear Susan, I know you believe as I do.” Very effective.
