That Tancredo guy sure is a dickhead. Glad those mayors have the guts to stand up to him.

Finally, there is no real solution here other than the construction of a high fence around Tom Tancredo.

The loser, Tancredo, fails to accept the reality that these Mayors have known for a long time. A FENCE WILL NOT WORK!!!!

Tancredo is the funniest. I literally love watching him in debates.

Questions inevitably are solved by the same answer.

Q: How would you help healthcare in America?

A: by getting illegal aliens out of our emergency rooms!

Q: How would you help our economy?

A: by kicking illegal aliens out of our economy and giving those jobs to Americans!

Q: How would you fight terrorism?

A: by ending the flow of illegal aliens over the border!

et cetera, really, there's no question that can't be solved by getting rid of illegal immigration.

Tancredo calls immigration police on participants of congressional staff meeting
By Klaus Marre
October 23, 2007
Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.), who runs his long-shot presidential campaign on a platform of a tough immigration policy, alerted federal officials Tuesday to an event that he said would be attended by "several illegal aliens."

Tancredo brought to the attention of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) a staff briefing that was to be attended by Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) and Richard Lugar (R-Ind.).

The briefing was meant to educate staff on the DREAM Act, a bill that would allow "certain long-term undocumented immigrant children to go to college or join the military if they meet stringent requirements," according to Durbin's office.

A notice on the briefing, which said that students who would benefit from the DREAM Act would participate in the event, apparently caught Tancredo's eye.
"I call on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency to detain any illegal aliens at this press conference," he stated. "Just because these illegal aliens are being used for political gain doesn't mean they get immunity from the law."

The briefing was supposed to be held Tuesday afternoon in the Capitol.

"If we can't enforce our laws inside the building where American laws are made, where can we enforce them?" Tancredo asked.

" Participating in the news conference were three immigrant students who would benefit if Mr. Durbin's legislation passed; two were born in Germany, and one was from Costa Rica. All were in the United States on temporary legal status, said Joe Shoemaker, Mr. Durbin's spokesman. [..]

A spokeswoman for the immigration agency, Kelly Nantel, confirmed that officials had received a letter from Mr. Tancredo and were reviewing it. She said the agency took no action yesterday."

Well with any luck he'll get a couple percent write-in votes from the loonier portion of the right (or is that an oxymoron?)(because he sure ain't gonna get the Repub. nomination), enough to splinter the Republican vote a little more and to guarantee they'll be totally ineffective with their losses for the next four years. Keep it up, Tom.
