Republicans for Immigration Reform is a SuperPAC which aims at pushing for immigration reform in the United States and improving the Republican Party’s standing among Hispanics.[1]

Promoted in early 2012 by former US Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez,[1] its advocates hope it will help repair the political damage left by years of anti-illegal-immigrant rhetoric that has dominated GOP primaries and alienated crucial Hispanic voters.[2] Another important supporter is Charles Spies, a member of the PAC Restore Our Future.[1] Gutierrez believes that "the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn't belong".[3]

The Tea Party would suggest that it is the moderate and far-left of the Republican Party is who has taken the party to a place it doesn't belong and are proud to be the far-right, supporting reasonable immigration policies.
