Tancredo says amnesty would be "a slap in the face' to real immigrants

Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo, a Colorado Congressman, used a weekend campaign stop to emphasize that he is not again immigration, but is against illegal immigration, and its cost to taxpayers.

Tancredo said that amnesty would be "a slap in the face to all the people who did it the right way, and to those who are patiently waiting in line to legally get in."

The Congressman gained prominence for his staunch stance against illegal immigration. He told the Iowa group that he does not apologize for his conservatism, nor for his belief that Americans are not just members of a region, but citizens of a country. He said that the nation's borders are there for to protect Americans, adding that illegal immigration raises health care costs.

  1. It's true! What are we supposed to say to all of the people that are trying to get here legally?
    I have a friend right now who's husband is doing this very thing.

    What are we supposed to say to these good people that are just trying to follow the law?

    Oh, sorry about that...

    Maybe you should have broken the law...

    America seems to reward Crimmigrants!

    It's just not right!
    Not at all!!!!


Please be civil. Thank you.
