Tom Tancredo's Response To Amnesty Defeat

Congressman Tom Tancredo, a real patriot and a conservative whom many right thinkers, including yours truly, believe would be a great next President if only he'd run in 2008, has been one of the staunchest fighters on Capital Hill against the criminal alien amnesty proposals that would severely damage this country.

Moving along to yesterday{I've been somewhat swamped with work for a new client}, here was his response to the defeat of the amnesty bill.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) today hailed the demise of the Senate’s amnesty deal which was brokered between Democrats and a handful of Republicans, yesterday. Cloture on the Martinez-Hagel pact was defeated in a 39-60 vote this morning.

“Today is a good day for America. The Senate – in a rare moment of clarity – rejected its amnesty-now, enforcement-later approach to immigration,” said Tancredo. “Over the Easter break, I will help inform the Senators’ constituents of what their representatives are doing in Washington. Hopefully, listening to their electorate will chasten these Senators so that they’ll put amnesty away for good.”

Tancredo continued, “No amnesty bill will pass the House of Representatives so long as Republican leadership holds to its promise to block legislation that doesn’t command the support of a GOP majority. Amnesty is a non-starter. If the Senate is serious about sending real security legislation to the President’s desk this year, it must take a different approach.”

Go, Tom!

Michael, it looks like America is going to win this one, thanks to right-thinkers like Tom Tancredo, Howard Kaloogian, Bay Buchanan and We The People who have made our will crystal clear.
