Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

LET YOUR TELEVISION STATIONS KNOW THAT TANCREDO'S AD CROSSES THE LINE

Rate this Entry

Immigrants' List has launched an online petition campaign to urge local television stations to reject Tom Tancredo's outrageous television ads that links unauthorized immigrants to terrorism. While free speech is an important value in this country (that's why I choose to ignore rather than censor many ridiculous comments on this blog), television stations regularly reject advertisements that are offensive. And it is their Supreme Court-recognized right. They ought to be exercising it in this case.

    This add definetly is borderline hate speech, the guy is desperate playing the Bush game of fear politics. I am afraid that profits will matter much more to TV stations specially in Iowa. Never the less we should sign this petition to send a message.

    I heard the ad and also Tencredo's interview with CNN. I heard this on a Radio show, and apparently all the right wing radio talk show hosts and loving this ad and supporting what Tencredo is doing. If nothing else, I hope this ad makes people aware of the kind of nuts that exists on the Republican side. I hate what Tencredo is doing, but I think he's hurting his party more by doing this.

    I think you're right that he's hurting his party, unfortunately he is spreading a lot of misinformation along the way. The ad has about 300,000 views on youtube (Tancredo's posting of it has only 20,000 ,but another has many more). Most of the comments on it though are negative or just laughter. I think we're finally seeing something that politically interested people are looking at, not just those who are generally interested in immigration. Nice to see that most people think he's ridiculous.

    Somebody should explain to Tancredo, that Osama is not working in a meet packing factory for $5 per hour. And that deporting some Mexican or Chinese hotel maid and mother of four is not going to win us the war on terror.

    By the way, beefing up the enforcement against the illegal immigrants was done under scare of terrorism. But does anyone know the statistics?

    From the 600,000 or so illegal immigrants, deported this year, how many ARE terrorists?
    From the September 11 terrorists, how many WORKED illegally in America?
    From all the apprehended terrorists, how many ARE children of illegal immigrants, who came at young age to the country?

    I could be wrong, but as far as I know:
    No terrorist ever worked illegally in America.
    No terrorist was a child of illegal immigrants.
    All the Oklahoma terrorists were American born.
    None of the 9/11 terrorists was trying to get a green card or citizenship...
    It can go on and on...

    To summarize it: wasting resources on raiding factories, farms, and homes and catching illegally working immigrants is a gross misuse of tax money.
