Tancredo to Paul Ryan: Name the Time and Place
Gubernatorial Candidate Tancredo answers challenge from Rep. Ryan on whether Immigration Bill is Amnesty
(Lakewood, Colo.) – Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo today answered U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan’s challenge to debate whether the current
immigration legislation amounts to amnesty. Rep. Ryan told attendees of an <web.lexisnexis.com/research/retrieve?_m=a29ddb2126…31d34 f47a&csvc=lt&cform=&_fmtstr=FULL&docnum=1&_startdoc=1&wchp=dGLzVzB-zSkAb&_md 5=87df6d7d20c092bc69c8b26a03822ac0> immigration forum last week that
granting a path to citizenship to millions of illegal aliens currently
living in the United States amounted to "earned legalization," rather than amnesty, adding that he would "debate anybody who tries to suggest that these ideas that are moving through Congress are amnesty."
"Name the time and place!" said former Congressman Tom Tancredo. "I would love to hear Paul explain how granting million illegal immigrants a path to U.S. citizenship isn’t amnesty."
"This bill has one purpose: To give legal status to millions of people who are in this country illegally," added Tancredo. "Mr. Ryan can put as much lipstick as he wants on this pig, but it’s still going to be a pig."
Tancredo said he is open to any number of format’s to hold the discussion, and extended an invitation to hold the debate in Colorado.
"If Congressman Ryan can find some time to get out of Washington, DC, I’d love to introduce him to a few legal immigrants who came here the right way," said Tancredo. "I’m sure they’d be happy to tell him what they think of his plan to let millions of illegal immigrants sidestep the rules and cut to the front of the line."
