I am gleefully shocked! Good news for a change!!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. House of Representatives this morning voted to withhold federal emergency services funding for "sanctuary cities" that protect illegal immigrants.

Anti-illegal immigration champion Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., sponsored the measure, which he says would apply to cities such as Denver and Boulder. He was elated by its passage, which stunned critics and supporters alike.

Tancredo said he thinks his amendment is an indicator that the House would crush the reform plan if it passes in the Senate.

"If I were (Speaker of the House) Nancy Pelosi, I'd be asking if she could pass a vote on amnesty on the House side," Tancredo said. "If she lost 50 Democrats on this one, and she says she needs 70 Republicans to pass the immigration plan, this is an interesting indicator of things coming down the pike, and that the times, they are a-changing."

Great News! Now if we can only get this passed in the Senate. I guess all those faxes and phone calls are paying off.

The House views this issue differently from the Senate. They are not as tied to Boosh's apron strings as the Senate seems to be. Nancy Panderpants Pelosi has already said that without the yes vote from the approximately 75 Republican representatives in the House, she won't even bring ithe Senate shamnesty bill to the floor for debate and according to everything I've read and Pelosi's own words, the votes are not there.

If the shamnesty debacle makes it out of the Senate, it will die in the House.

Default Tancredo - A true American Hero

This man has been excoriated by the media because he dares to speak up for what's right and just.

He has also been barred from the white house by Karl Rove - Persona non grata.

He has been at the front of this fight from the beginning, withstanding the onslaught of false accusations. A lesser person would have folded long ago.

God Bless Tom Tancredo

I keep hoping Tancredo will be up in polls and on media. We need to concentrate on a single candidate whoever that will be.

Now that you mention it Kele, I remember seeing something about this in the news. Pelsoi is concerned if they pass this without a large number of republicans the democrats will be blamed for any political fallout in the future.

Which kind of indicates she already knows this immigration shamnesty is wrong.
