Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal told John Dickerson on “Face the Nation” that immigrants who “want to come to our country should come legally,” but need to assimilate themselves into American culture.

JINDAL: A smart immigration policy makes our country stronger. We need to insist that people that want to come to our country should come legally, should learn English and adopt our values, roll up their sleeves and get to work. One of thing I’ve been emphasizing as a son of immigrants who came here legally. We need to insist upon assimilation. Immigration without assimilation is invasion… Let’s forget this politically correct left notion that we’re not a melting pot anymore.
