Representative Raul Grijalvo Contradicted Himself on Hardball

Get a load of this exchange between Representative Raul Grijalva (D-Arizona) and "Hardball" host Chris Matthews.

REP. RAUL GRIJALVA (D), ARIZONA: "Well, I think the issue is that we have to deal with the reality that there are people in this country, and that are law-abiding, and that..."

MATTHEWS: "Right."

GRIJALVA: "... for some reason, need to have a path to legalization. And that should be open to them."

They aw "law-abiding" but need a "path to legalization," which means they are "law abiding" but illegal.

One can be "law abiding" or "illegal" but not both. Why didn't Chris Matthews challenge him on that point?

Grijalva would use the next few minutes to propose the other ways he'd reward those who immigrated to this country in a manner that wasn't "law abiding."
