Loved on the Radio

Our message is reaching millions, and it's popular. Check this out from the Los Angeles Times:

John and Ken, the Los Angeles area radio talk-show hosts, were on the air. They discussed claims by the Homeland Security secretary that more guards had been stationed along the Mexico border. "Outright blatant lies!" John said. They trashed the Border Patrol chief. "A cardboard bureaucrat," he added.

From the back of the crowded hotel conference room here, where the pair were broadcasting, one listener couldn't contain himself. "You betcha!" he roared, and the sympathetic audience erupted in laughter.

For four days this week, John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou joined more than 30 other radio hosts from across the country, broadcasting live from D.C. to demand immigration laws that secure the border, punish employers who hire illegals and deny citizenship to immigrants who sneaked into the country.

They brought with them a chorus of more than 600 listeners, who lobbied all 535 lawmakers and provided a refrain of cheers and groans during the daily 5 a.m.-to-midnight broadcast marathon.

"Brown, black, white, they're all here," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., a firebrand immigration critic.

This crowd loves Tancredo.

This is a quote from the Associated Press just today on the Comcast website, at the end of the article:

http://www.comcast.net/news/index.jsp?cat=GENERAL&fn=/2007/04/28/649017.html

"Most national polls show Americans are overwhelmingly supportive of an immigration overhaul that would allow those here illegally to stay, work and earn their way to legal status."

SAY WHAT?!?! WHO IS THIS PERSON TALKING TO??? Are they doing their "National" polling on the streets of San Francisco??? I can't find anyone with this attitude.
TANCREDO FOR PRESIDENT!! NOW!
