Rick Boucher beats Fred Thompson on Immigration Report Card

Americans for Better Immigration (ABI) has given Fred Thompson a C for his career votes on immigration. Here are a few of the highlights.

Voted as part of the Senate Judiciary Committee to end chain migration and crack down on illegal immigration in 1996.

Voted in 1996 to continue chain migration

Voted to strip legal reforms from 1996 bill

Voted in favor of chain migration in 1996

Voted for a foreign worker bill with no anti-fraud measures in 2000.

As Committee member, produced H-1B doubling bill in 1998

Nearly doubled H-1B foreign high-tech workers in 1998

Voted in committee against including
worker safeguards in H-1B bill in 1998

Voted to allow firms to lay off Americans
to make room for foreign workers in 1998

Voted to grant amnesty to nearly one million
illegal aliens from Nicaragua and Cuba in 1997

In 1996, removed higher fines for businesses which hire illegal aliens

Tried to kill voluntary pilot programs
for workplace verification in 1996 (READ IT ALL)

Just for comparison - Webb and Warner both received a C-. My feckless trail building congressman Rick Boucher received a B-. Jim Moran had a C-. That puts Fred somewhere between Boucher and Moran on immigration.

McCain received a D.  Ron Paul scored a B,  Brownback a D.

Duncan Hunter and Tancredo both received A+ ratings.

Freddie gets a "C" and he is supposed to be the poster boy for Conservatives? Give me a break! He looks old, sounds old, and has been out of touch for years with the mainstream Republican voters.

How could anyone support this man is beyond me!
