    An immigrant rights advocate is someone who supports the cause of immigrant rights.

    From the WR dictionary: advocate n. a person who speaks or writes in support of a cause, person, etc.:a strong advocate of military intervention.

    "Put it" in this context means the way something is worded or described.

    The immigrant rights advocate described changing the constitution to stop maternity tourism as killing a fly with an Uzi (using an unnecessarily elaborate method where a simpler method would have been enough).
