Tancredo Throws Down the Gauntlet to the Senate

The main of this post is cross-posted by Freedom of Philadelphia, but a few words first:

This is, apparently, the last weekend before a Senate debate and vote on Illegal Immigration. I’d like to think that each Republican Senator is seriously thinking about his/her ability to quell this beast of a bill.

At the end of this post is a link to several very good posts on illegal immigration. Be sure to read the words of Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn from Right Truth explaining why the border fence was funded, but isn’t now, and how earmarks are addressed on the floor of the House of Representatives.

In the meantime, 2008 Presidential candidate, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) is doing what he does best: put America and American citizens first.

Read this good news as reported by Freedom of Philadelphia:

Saw this over at hot air.com and for all those against this Shamnesty bill it’s really good news. So good that it just made my terrible week fine and dandy.
