LITTLE ROCK - The director of Arkansas' Republican Party told a GOP lawmaker in an e-mail that efforts to crack down on illegal immigration could make the party look racist and hurt efforts to attract businesses to the state.

"Passing fair policies that make it easier for businesses to locate in Arkansas should be our priority, not passing feel-good legislation that is unconstitutional and runs the risk of making our party look racist. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh," Republican Party of Arkansas Executive Director Karen Ray wrote in an e-mail to a Republican lawmaker.

Ray later wrote in the e-mail, "I think y'all should be championing economic policies that create jobs, not introducing immigration legislation that makes Arkansas less attractive to business."

Ray acknowledged Wednesday that she sent the e-mail that was posted on the Arkansas Times' blog a day earlier, but denied that it reflected the state party's views. Ray said the e-mail was meant to be a private conversation and would not identify the lawmaker she sent it to.

That makes me sick. I guess enforcing the law is racist.

What they should do is remind everyone of Mexico's immigration laws and how they handle illegal immigrants. Mexico deports more illegals then we do.

Kudos to you. You are the first illegal immigrant supporter that would admit the truth.
