Thompson Smears Reagan & Immigrants
Only if President Ronald Reagan did not sign into law the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 our great Nation would not have been attacked by suicidal maniacs, according to the next Ronald Reagan and savoir of the Republican Party Fred Thompson.
Fred Thompson, a potential Republican presidential candidate, suggested that the 1986 immigration law signed by President Reagan is to blame for the country's illegal immigrants, and he bemoaned a nation beset by "suicidal maniacs."The AP reporter is too kind to the ex-Senator and current actor Fred Thomson. I read the quote over and over, it seem to me that Thomson is blaming the illegal immigrants living in the United States of America for acts of suicidal maniacs. I don’t see the correlation of my parents and 2.7 million illegal immigrants become American citizens under the Reagan amnesty passed in 1986 to the current actions of Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. Bashing illegal immigrants and linking them to terrorism will make Conservative base feel all warm and fuzzy inside but, it’s a racially tinged argument and it does not address the serious issue of terrorism or immigration.
"Twelve million illegal immigrants later, we are now living in a nation that is beset by people who are suicidal maniacs and want to kill countless innocent men, women and children around the world," the former Tennessee senator said. "We're sitting here now with essentially open borders."
