Candidates Gather in Des Moines to Address Activists-- April 14, 2007 ...Main | Next
April 14, 2007--Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) challenged the audience to ask candidates one question: "As president, what will you do about the 20 million or so illegal aliens living here in the country today?"  "Enforce the law," said Tancredo.  "If you enforce the law, people who are here illegally go home.  They go home because the thing for which they have come--the job--is no longer available.  If they cannot get social service benefits, they go home by the millions, and if they don't you must deport them because that is the law."  (speech)
Congressman Tancredo waits to speak, along with Auditor Dave Vaudt.
