A leading conservative Latino group believes an immigration reform bill could be passed by the end of the year.

"It may happen. Republicans in the House understand that this is an important issue and an important issue for our economy," Alfonso Aguilar, executive director of Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles in Washington, D.C., told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.




"Our immigration system is dysfunctional, it's broken, we need to fix it … We can pass a series of bills that address the issue of immigration in an ample way, but in a way that is consistent with rule of law with conservative principles, and at the same time is compassionate and responds to the needs of the market."

Aguilar said he believes in the principles of immigration reform that President Ronald Reagan stood for.

"He understood that … when we have an economy that's not growing fast enough, when we have unemployment over 7 percent, immigrants are not taking jobs away from Americans," he said.

"And every study you see shows that they're taking jobs, low-skill jobs, that Americans don't want or where there's simply no Americans of working age to do them."
