WASHINGTON -- The Republican National Committee is endorsing comprehensive immigration reform as part of a multi-step roadmap designed to improve the GOP's brand among minority voters who overwhelmingly backed Democrats last fall.
The committee releases a 100-page report Monday outlining dozens of recommendations.
The report says Republicans -- quote -- "must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform."
Committee chairman Reince Preibus also plans a $10 million effort to dispatch political staff into minority communities across the nation this year.
The recommendations follow a months-long period of self-examination prompted by last year's election losses.
The report also calls on Republicans to take a harder line with corporate America, loosen political fundraising laws and cut in half the number of debates in a shortened 2016 presidential primary calendar.
