Al Madrigal lays out the tough but fair conditions Latinos will impose on Republicans hoping to one day win back the White House. (3:22)

I MEAN, COME ON!

OH, WITH THE BARBED WIRE.

SO CONGRATULATIONS CONGRESS, IT

SURE AS HELL AIN'T AMNESTY BUT

BY CREATING THIS PATH TO

CITIZENSHIP YOU CREATED A

BARRIER IMMIGRANTS WON'T BE ABLE

TO GET PAST.

(LAUGHTER)

FOR MORE WE TURN TO SENIOR

IMMIGRATION CORRESPONDENT AL

MADRIGAL.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

AL, THANK FOR JOINING US.

AL, LET ME ASK YOU THIS, IS --

THIS IMMIGRATION BILL, IS IT

REALLY GOING TO HELP ITS

INTENDED BENEFICIARIES?

>> JON, I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE

DIFFICULT.

BUT I DO ALSO THINK THAT

COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM

COULD HELP TAKE THESE PEOPLE OUT

OF THE SHADOWS AND PUT THEM BACK

ON A PATH TO PRESIDENTSHIP.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: I'M SORRY, SAY THAT

AGAIN?

>> LOOK, JON, CLEARLY

REPUBLICANS THINK THEY HAVE TO

REACH OUT TO LATINOS TO REGAIN A

CHANCE TO OCCUPY THE CASA

BLANCA, THAT'S WHY LATINOS ARE

SETTING TOUGH BUT FAIR

CONDITIONS FOR REPUBLICANS TO

MEET.

PASSING IMMIGRATION REFORM IS

JUST THE BEGINNING.

>> Jon: WHAT COMES NEXT FOR

THEM?

>> FOR STARTERS THEY'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO GO AT LEAST TEN YEARS

WITHOUT SAYING SOMETHING LIKE

THIS.

>> MY FATHER HAD A RANCH, WE

USED TO HIRE 50 TO 60 WETBACKS

AND PICK TOMATOES.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

>> NOW, UNLESS DON YOUNG IS

REFERRING TO THE MANY CHILDREN

OF ALISTAIR AND CATHERINE VON

WETBACK.

(LAUGHTER)

OF THE NEW ENGLAND VON WETBACKS,

THAT AIN'T COOL.

AND I'M NOT JUST TALKING

NATIONAL POLITICIANS.

I'M ALSO TALKING ABOUT MAYORS

WHO BRUSH OFF LATINO RACIAL

PROFILING CASES WITH COMMENTS

LIKE THIS.

>> WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR THE

LATINO COMMUNITY TODAY?

>> I MIGHT HAVE TACOS WHEN I GO

HOME.

I'M NOT QUITE SURE YET.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

>> MIGHT HAVE TACOS?

MIGHT?

IF YOU CAN THINK OF A BETTER WAY

OF DELIVERING BEEF, LETTUCE,

CHEESE, CO-MAY OES AND BEANS IN

A CRISPY OR SOFT SHELL DEPENDING

ON YOUR PREFERENCE YOU'RE

WELCOME TO TRY, TACO MAYOR!

(LAUGHTER).

>> Jon: WHAT ABOUT A BURRITO?

>> IT'S DELICIOUS TOO!

(LAUGHTER).

>> Jon: IS THAT IT?

IS THAT THE CONDITIONS TO PUT

REPUBLICANS BACK ON A PATH TO

PRESIDENTSHIP?

>> NO, IT'S NOT IT!

REPUBLICANS MUST ALSO STOP USING

"HISPANIC" TO REFER TO ALL

LATINOS.

YOU'LL NOW JUST HAVE TO

DISTINGUISHES BETWEEN MEXICANS,

HONDURANS, GUATEMALANS,

DOMINICANS, KARDASHIANS.

(LAUGHTER).

>> Jon: I DON'T THINK

KARDASHIANS ARE LATINO.

>> WHAT?

KARDASHIANS AREN'T LATINO?

>> Jon: NO, I DON'T BELIEVE

SO.

>> HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THEIR

BUTTS?

(LAUGHTER).

>> Jon: JOHN.

>> GO AHEAD, JON, EXPLAIN THE

KARDASHIANS' BUTT.

(LAUGHTER).

>> Jon: NO.

(LAUGHTER)

LOOK, IF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

DOES ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU'VE

LISTED, ARE LATINOS THEN WILLING

TO CONSIDER PUTTING REPUBLICANS

BACK ON THE PATH TO

PRESIDENTSHIP?

AMNESTY OR NOT?

>> YES.

WITH ONE FINAL REQUIREMENT.

>> Jon: YES?

>> THEY MUST GUESS WHAT NUMBER

I'M THINKING OF.

(LAUGHTER)

BETWEEN, I DON'T KNOW, LET'S SAY

ONE AND A MILLION.

>> Jon: THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

>> IT'S NOT IMPOSSIBLE, BUT,

LIKE THE PATH TO CITIZENSHIP

THAT THEY'RE OFFERING, IT MIGHT

TAKE A LITTLE WHILE.

>> Jon: THANK YOU, AL.

AL MADRIGAL,
