A heated exchange between Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., and talk radio host Laura Ingraham goes to show how adamant many GOP lawmakers are about passing immigration reform.

Ellmers was a guest Thursday on the “Laura Ingraham Show,” and slammed the host for taking an “ignorant position” of opposing immigration reform. Ingraham appeared to have gotten under Ellmers’ skin by repeatedly accusing her of spouting liberal talking points.

“I’m not going to take an ignorant position on this as you have on this issue,” Ellmers said after explaining that farmers in North Carolina support reform.

“So it’s ignorant to follow the rule of law, to believe in an orderly process of immigration and to follow our sovereignty not our emotions?” Ingraham countered.

Ellmers responded by telling Ingraham to get her “facts straight.”

“I have my facts straight, Congresswoman, believe me,” she fired back. “I’ve been working on this issue for about 10 years, and the American people are not with you. La Raza and Chuck Schumer are with you.”

The contentious 10-minute interview is a good sign of just how critical some Republicans see the issue and that passage of immigration reform cannot be ruled out in 2014, despite repeated assertions from leadership that it will not happen this year.
