Immigration’s U.S. Rep. Tancredo’s top topic
U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a vocal critic of President Bush’s immigration policy, announced he would run for President in 2008 — if he could not find a more viable candidate to adopt his views on illegal immigration.
“I don’t consider myself a candidate today,” Tancredo said when asked if he is considering a Presidential run, adding, “If no one will take this banner up (illegal immigration) — and I say this with great trepidation — yeah, I will.
Tancredo’s primary goal, however, is to “push (illegal immigration) to the forefront of the Presidential debate” and persuade another Presidential hopefuls with more stature and resources than he to “take this banner up, not just with words, but their heart.”
Tancredo made similair statements on The Lars Larson national show on Thursday (6/9/05) which can be heard HERE.
Obviously he is our best hope for making this huge problem an issue in '08 and I will vote for him if he runs.
