BOISE -- Idaho Republican Congressman Raul Labrador has been Washington's go-to man on the immigration front.

During a taping of Viewpoint Thursday he told Mark Johnson that Congress is divided on the issue, but he believes there is a road to a reform bill.

There is a strict line that s being drawn by people that have been in Congress for a long period of time who are part of the immigration battle, maybe four, five years ago. But the new congressmen like myself, we come from agricultural, rural districts, we understand the need for an immigration system that works. And you will hear a lot of the ultra conservative young members of the House of Representatives say that we have to do something, said Labrador.

You can see the full interview on Viewpoint, which airs at 9 a.m. Sunday on Channel 7.
