Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that because they fix his house.
Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is "what's keeping this country's lifeblood moving forward."
In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they "are doing things we need done in this country."

...just taking the jobs Americans can’t get.....
Second, Powell doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who is hurting for cash, and if he had wanted to, he could have paid the extra premium to hire US workers instead.
So yea, arrest him and the illegals he hired.
He also said repeatedly that Zero is a Christain. The guy is a lier.
Is Powell a racist..he didnt want anything to do with politics until Obama showed up...duh
Powell’s employment of illegal aliens will be forgotten by the GOP.
Powell’s support for criminal illegal aliens will be forgotten by the GOP.
Powell’s support for Obama and the DNC will be forgotten by the GOP.
Colin Powell is a liberal Democrat!!!
colon powell needs to fade away and just live with the millions he and his wife make from their various directorships. begone, yo0u nobama-supporting racist.
We are bringing in 125,000 legal foreign workers a month right now thru both permanent and temporary work permits in the midst of almost 10% unemployment or close to 17% using U-6 numbers. Does this make sense?
Powell is a tool of corporate interests. They are paying him to sit on boards and help fund his little red wagon charity.
The Heritage Foundation concluded that the cost of amnesty alone would be $2.6 trillion. And the number of additional LEGAL immigrants who would join those who were the recipients of amnesty through chain migration, i.e., family reunification, would approach 70 million over a 20-year period, assuming there are only 12 million illegal aliens. We cannot assimilate such numbers. An amnesty would destroy the United States of America with the stroke of a pen.
Powell has ALWAYS been a lefty politician.
Norman Schwarzkopf was the brains and brawn behind the first gulf war.
Powell just played the appeaser to the Arabs.
General Powell, tell that to all the American construction workers who have lost their jobs to illegals. Skilled construction work is work Americans want to do and used to be able to support families with.
Today when I visit residential construction sites in New Jersey I see and hear hispanic people speaking spanish. I do not know their legal status but the large number of them on the site suggests to me they may not be legal.
Perhaps he supports illegal aliens, more importantly, he voted for an illegal immigrant for president.
...and Powell should have been kicked out of the Army.
Yep. He claims to be a Republican but publicly endorsed Obastard ONLY because Obastard is black.
Moderate Republican, my A$$. Powell is a tried and true lib who was one of the principle causes of Gulf War II by persuading GB I not to finish Gulf War I. Anything and everything Powell says now is completely irrelevant. If he wasn't black, he wouldn't even be in the public eye - (like where's Schwartskoff, where is Franks)?
he ought to be thrown in prison for that. This guy is a fraud.
Thank you for your service, General Powell. Now, please fade quietly into the background and be heard from no more.
