Cyclone Conservatives: Tom Tancredo's Sioux City Immigration Forum

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives
... Tancredo's speech was really high octane. His entire speech was about immigration in some manner but as always, he connected it to other issues. Much of it focused on the immigration bill, which he proudly trumpeted as being 'killed' for now. Though he cautioned the attendees that it could well come back and warned that President Bush would be trying to twist as many arms as possible. ... He also read documents put out by the government that are intended to be used as a citizenship test and noted all the misspellings and grammar mistakes and noted that English should be the official language but not even the people in the government could use it properly, to which he got plenty of laughs. He also started talking about how this would affect the culture of the United States and how the English language is the glue which keeps the country together and strongly warned against those who want to make America bilingual. ... He urged primary challenges for Republicans who supported the "McCain-Kennedy-Bush" bill and urged people to stand up to Democrats and also to keep writing letters to the editor, talking to friends and family, and especially contacting members of Congress.
