Trying to stomach the fact that it reads like it’s been proofread by a toddler, I scanned Tom Tancredo’s issues page on his presidential exploratory committee website. And I found this all-too entertaining statement, in his section on immigration (which, of course, goes first):
The only realistic solution to the problem of illegal immigration is a strategy of attrition, which seeks to reduce the flow of the illegal alien population over time by cutting off the incentives for coming to and staying in America – most importantly by eliminating the jobs magnet.
Emphasis mine. That’s right, folks – the Tom Tancredo approach to immigration is to make America just horrible enough that no Mexican in his right mind would want to move here.
