NAPLES, Fla. -- Republican Fred Thompson said Tuesday the government should yank federal dollars from cities and states that don't report illegal immigrants.


In his first major policy proposal, Thompson challenged presidential rivals Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney by criticizing "sanctuary cities" where city workers are barred from reporting suspected illegal immigrants who enroll their children in school or seek hospital treatment.

His campaign has been seeking a "hook" issue to get him some attention. Fred needs an issue to differentiate himself from other GOP frontrunners, and this one might be what he chose.

Yes, I've been hopping he would get into the race, now that he did I've been waiting to see how he seperates himself from the rest. 1 Point for Fred on this one..

I think it is best to choose someone who at least was against illegal immigration or reform from the being and not just watching the publics reaction and then changing their mind later.

I doubt there will be any serious thoughts of changing my mind. I am keeping my eyes and ears open to all the Republican candidates. So far my biggest fear about Fred Thompson was when in heck he was going to throw his hat in the ring. LOL Thank goodness he finally did. I like his views on illegals. Also on other things too but this is not the forum to discuss that.

To catch all of the bottom feeders I hope he has a big hook.

His opponent for the Senate in 1994, Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.), labeled Thompson a "Gucci-wearing, Lincoln-driving, Perrier-drinking, Grey Poupon-spreading millionaire Washington special-interest lobbyist" but was still clobbered by the Republican.
