Tancredo wins round 1to build Mexico fence
It was a victory the once-obscure Colorado congressman savored yesterday.
When the House of Representatives passed a tough new border control bill last night, Republican Rep. Tom Tancredo was all smiles.
Tancredo added: "The fact that Congress was forced to discuss immigration reform in itself is a victory for my allies. Such a victory has been years in the making, and credit is due to the millions of Americans who attended town halls, wrote letters to the editor, called talk radio shows, and even defended the border on their own. I thank them whole-heartedly for their efforts, and I am deeply honored by the support they have shown me and my congressional allies."
We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to Rep. Tancredo. Check out his Reform NOW site and send him a thank you!
