“I’ve heard the national anthem done in rap versions, country versions, classical versions. The individualization of the American national anthem is quite under way,” she said on the CBS show “Face the Nation.”

“From my point of view, people expressing themselves as wanting to be Americans is a good thing,” she added. “I think what we need to focus on is an immigration policy that is comprehensive and that recognizes our laws and recognizes our humanity.”
