It's True

Tancredo: Immigrants held to lower standard:

Republican Rep. Tom Tancredo told law enforcement officers that illegal immigrants are held to lower standards by the justice system than Americans.

"An illegal alien actually has a different system of justice here," he said Tuesday in a speech to about 30 officers. "If you're here illegally, you can get a pass."
Right, they can break the law by entering illegally, and not get in trouble. Further, they can work, use our medical facilities and public schools, and do whatever they want without being deported. Isn't that lovely?

Tancredo said he has no presidential aspirations of his own.

"I'm too short, I'm too fat, I'm too bald to be the president of the United States," he said.
At least he has a sense of humor about it. :)
