Glenn Beck's radio co-hosts, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, said Thursday that the media consistently misrepresents conservatives' position on immigration.
"We actually love having immigrants here," Stu remarked on the Glenn Beck Radio Program. "The ambition of all these people, over all this time, creates a country that turns into what we have, which has been the greatest country on the earth for a long period of time."
Pat and Stu said the media falsely try to make it seem as though conservatives are opposed to all forms of immigration, because they are opposed to illegal immigration.

Rather, the two said, conservatives are trying to make the process easier for people who are "not criminals, who are not trying to break the law ... who are going to come here and offer something to this country and love it."
Pat and Stu spoke to a man identified as Eric from Massachusetts, who has been trying to help his husband immigrate to the United States legally for the past year. Eric said he feels like his head is going to "explode" when he reads the reports of how tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who have committed heinous criminal acts are released onto the streets, but his husband's future is still in limbo.
"The injustice is staggering, what I'm going through with the immigration process," Eric remarked. "It's been almost exactly one year, $6,500 later, and still waiting for appointment with the embassy in San Salvador."
Stu said that "instead of making the legal process easier and more sensible," the Democrats are basically saying "how about everyone shows up whenever they want, and do whatever they want?"
"Work on the actual legal framework and people will be behind it, including conservatives," he remarked.
