It's an unusual tactic for a presidential campaign. I don't know if Tancredo is thinking out of the box or just not thinking.

MigraMatters:

With each new ad from Team Tancrazy, the level of hysteria gets ratcheted up one more notch.

Last month it was terrorists flooding over the southern border to blow up a shopping mall near you.

Now comes his newest ad, claiming that immigrants are "pushing drugs, raping kids, and destroying lives"...

Simon Rosenberg asks, "If immigration is so important to Americans, why is Tancredo at 1 percent?" and Elana Levin spells out on the DMIblog what comprehensive Progressive immigration reform should look like, and it's nothing like that hate-filled demagoguery that makes up Tancredo's platform.

Can you help us out?
