U.S. Senate candidate Jane Norton reportedly spoke at a Colorado Restaurant Association Political Action Committee meeting in Denver Thursday and told the audience that the country needs a "workable immigration system." The comments spurred Tom Tancredo's American Legacy Alliance to send out the kind of watchdog-style press release that seems to increasingly follow Norton speaking events, this time coming not from a Democratic Party organization but from a champion of the state's grass roots right.
"I ask that Jane clarify her comments and explain what a 'workable' immigration system actually is," Tancredo is quoted to say in the release, which captures Tancredo's rapid-fire style. "That has become a code word for amnesty legislation. This kind of pro-amnesty rhetoric is virtually identical to that of John McCain."
