Fred Thompson on Possible Immigration Compromise

Yesterday, potential presidential candidate, and Podium favorite, Fred Thompson posted a reponse to the pending immigration bill I blogged about yesterday. Here's what he had to say...

“With this bill, the American people are going to think they are being sold the same bill of goods as before on border security. We should scrap this bill and the whole debate until we can convince the American people that we have secured the borders or at least have made great headway.”

I couldn't have said it any better, myself. In fact, yesterday I stated that we need to secure the borders before we do anything in regards to legalizing or deporting illegal immigrants in a widespread manner.

I'm happy to see that the man I want to be President thinks the same way. Thompson's rapid responses to various issues, along with his usage of the internet to spread his thoughts, are very impressive and show that he knows how to communicate with modern America.

h/t to National Review Online, as well as my fellow Fred Thompson supporter Paul Cave, for the quote.
