Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says all immigrants should come into the country the same way his own parents did — legally. And they should assimilate.
"Immigration without assimilation is invasion that can weaken our country," Jindal said Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation."
He made similar comments on ABC's "This Week."
"We don't need to go down the path of Europe," which is facing "huge problems" with second- and third-generation immigrants who don't feel a part of their societies, Jindal told "Face the Nation." "Let's insist on being the melting pot, let's forget this politically correct left notion that we're not a melting pot anymore."
On "This Week," Jindal was asked if, as a child of immigrants, he ever feels troubled by some of the derogatory things said about immigrants.
"When it comes to immigration policy, what I have experienced, a strong immigration policy makes our stronger, a dumb one makes us weaker," Jindal said. "We've got a dumb one today."
