McCain-led coalition aims to discredit knowledgeable immigration control organizations
The birthdays of Presidents Washington and Lincoln have morphed into a single day that has lost any semblance of the original commemorations. Sales have replaced tributes. There are minor inconveniences of no trash pick-up or mail delivery. Libraries and government offices are closed. But the sharp mind of former U. S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) continues to perform and inform.
Townhall carries Tancredo’s excellent column, “Immigration and the Pro-Life Movement.”
His commentary opens with “There has not even been an amnesty bill introduced yet in the U.S. Senate, and key Republican members of the “Gang of Eight” are panicking.” This piqued our interest since two of the gangsters are Arizona senators — the deceptive John McCain and his open-borders protégé Jeff Flake.
Tancredo concludes with this pithy thought: “Just as any Republican with half a brain should be skeptical when someone like Senator John McCain (as in McCain/Kennedy Amnesty Bill) lectures us on immigration issues, they should be just as suspicious when the likes of Grover Norquist, the Catholic Council of Bishops or La Raza put targets on the backs of Numbers USA, FAIR and the Center for Immigration Studies* and gets front page coverage in The Washington Post. I can assure you that none of the aforementioned band of brothers are out to protect conservatives.”
Tom Tancredo’s credentials on the subject are impeccable. He represented Colorado’s 6th Congressional District from 1999 until 2009 where he chaired the 100+ member bipartisan Immigration Reform Caucus. He currently serves as co-chairman of Team America PAC and president of the Rocky Mountain Foundation. He authored “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security.
