Tommy Thompson's Telltale?

Posted by Mike Tate in In The News | Comments (0) | Permalink

Tommy Thompson ("the candidate, not the actor") is now running radio ads in the state of Iowa "outlining his plan for immigration reform." The radio ads claim Thompson "opposes any legislation creating a path to citizenship for immigrants who are in the country illegally. "First, no amnesty," he says in the ad."

But, is that really how Thompson has stood on the immigration issue? CNN reports Thompson's views on immigration reform:

Has previously said he supports providing a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants only if they do not have a criminal record, pay any back-taxes and penalties, learn English, and have lived in the U.S. for a certain length of time.
