Former U.S. Secretary of  State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican  Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration.

“We have a responsibility to those who do not yet have the  liberties and the rights that we enjoy,” Rice told a cheering  crowd at the annual gathering of California Republicans in the  San Francisco suburb of Burlingame. “We cannot abandon them …  We were once them.”

She did not offer a specific policy idea.

The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under  President George W. Bush, was the highlight of the second day of  the three-day convention, which has set out to rebuild the party  in a state where Democrats control both houses of the  legislature.
