Palin Endorses Tancredo - But Not For His Immigration Stance

Bookmark and Share

Sarah Palin Tom Tancredo
Sarah Palin made a last day endorsement of Tom Tancredo for governor of Colorado. As is quite telling with Sarah Palin though, she managed to leave out the issue of illegal immigration in her reasoning, stating that Tancredo will fight for lower taxes, smaller government and start growing the economy.

As I have documented here quite frequently - and as I was probably one of the first to publicly question her stance on illegal immigration (the day of her announcement as a VP candidate for McCain when everyone was fawning all over her) - the lack of mention of immigration as a reason for backing Tancredo continues her long trend of dodging the issue. Palin told Univision she was pro-amnesty for illegal aliens during the race and two years later tried to talk tough on SB1070, posing with Jan Brewer and standing up for "border security" all while telling Greta Van Susteren that she was still pro-amnesty.

Palin seems to have this habit of cozying up to those who put their foot down on illegal immigration, all while remaining pro-amnesty. I guess she's hoping some of their actual backbone on illegal immigration is transferred to her by the people's perceptions, but that is why I and other citizen journalists are here - to point out her's and other's double speak.

I'm sure Tancredo was pleased to receive her endorsement, even as late as it was - just the day before the election, but her motives clearly had nothing to do with illegal immigration and I'd just like to point that out.

I am opposed to immigration "reform" (amnesty). This country is overpopulated, and 21 million Americans are out of work.

She's trying to formulate a stance on just about everything now that she's on the national stage. She was pretty insulated in Alaska, but now she actually has to take a stand on issues like illegal immigration. We don't know where she truly stands on the issue, and unfortunately, she may not either.
