TANCREDO ENDORSES SCOTT LINGAMFELTER

By Greg L | 3 April 2013 | Virginia Politics | 11 Comments

I’ve been a huge fan of Tom Tancredo ever since he started grabbing the spotlight during the 2008 presidential election campaigns.  He’s been a tremendous advocate of improving border security, protecting our rights, reducing the size and scope of the federal government and dealing with the illegal alien issue in an honest, effective and straightforward manner.  That makes having him endorse Scott Lingamfelter for Lieutenant Governor a pretty big deal to me.

Leadership and unquestioned fidelity to the conservative movement are paramount to successful governance both in the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond. These principles are best evidenced not by a single act of fanfare, but by a continuous record of achievement.

In Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor race, one of the overriding issues is who is best to lead on the issue of combating illegal immigration. I have had the opportunity to view the competitive records of several contenders, and I keep coming back to one candidate.

Delegate Scott Lingamfelter is a conservative trailblazer that has continually championed the cause of fighting illegal immigration through state contractor and private employer E-verify, identifying illegal aliens that break the law, and excluding those law breakers from state tuition benefits. He will also pursue innovative legislation next session to better flag applicants for public assistance that may use a duplicate social security number - an innovative first step to combating both illegal immigration and welfare fraud with one fell swoop.

Due to his solid conservative leadership, I heartily endorse Scott Lingamfelter for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia and hope that you support him on May 18th.

With the federal government hell-bent on providing some sort of amnesty for illegal aliens and the recent explosion in unlawful border crossings that has prompted, we quite likely are going to have an illegal alien problem in Virginia in short order the likes of which we’ve never seen before.  Having Scott Lingamfelter in the top leadership of the Commonwealth could be very helpful when that happens.

    I too am a big fan of Tom Tancredo - he was my initial first choice for president during the 2008 primary season. Sadly, he is too polarizing a figure to get involved in this Lt. Gov. race.

    They just want 400,000 a year in as guest workers. I guess thats why you can still get a class C buiseness liscense with no proof of residence and be “contracted” as a $7 an hour drywall man w no tax or anything. The big developers bankrole the politicians in this state. They can lip synce e-verify all they want; its a red herring.

    E-Verify - right - red herring.

    If the were serious about controlling illegals, they would make being here a Capital Offense. As things stand now, this will never happen. Instead illegals will continue to be granted more benefits, rights, and privileges than citizens and legal immigrants.

    This national suicidal policy will continue until our economy finally collapses - probably in the next 5 years - just like once great Roman Empire collapsed.

    It’s probably not possible to be endorsed by Tancredo (I had almost forgotten) and still be taken seriously in a general election anywhere in the United States. On the other hand, oddly enough, it may not hurt in a RPV convention context. The question, however, is, given the fact that the eventual candidate will certainly have to face the voters, why would he ever solicit or accept this kind of endorsement. Short-term gain (maybe), long term handicap.

    Cory Stewart in favor of immigration reform quote:

    “If it could be demonstrated that they do not have a criminal past, that they are productive, and they add more to America than they take away, then by all means, find a way to get them to stay here legally,” he said Thursday.

    Tancredo was not a straight shooter on immigration. He got caught up in and tried to manage the media circus of 2005-2007 and ultimately did a huge disservice to immigration reform by allying himself with the wrong people and focusing on the wrong target.

    I apologize if I have used this analogy before, but if we reference the ‘gun control’ issue it might help. It’s not the gun, it’s the shooter. It’s not the illegal immigrants, it’s the immigration services. While I am very sympathetic to those who have suffered and who are outraged at the consequences of the collapse of our immigration system, it’s a problem that needs to be fixed at its source, Tancredo was not and is not systematic thinker; he turned into a demagogue much like his opponents on the other side of the issue.

    In the general election, the average voter won’t know Tom Tancredo from Tom Mix. Furthermore, the only votes the Republican nominee will get from Hispanic and/or the illegal aliens (voting illegally) and their sympathizers will be those made by mistake, regardless of who endorses him. So Scott may as well get his endorsement for the convention. Does no harm.

    Migration/Immigration: More people; more problems. Third World status is the natural status for planet Earth.

    @ Robert: Agree with you about Tancredo. More intriguing is your follow-on thought. How many illegal aliens voted in the last election? Is there any credible evidence that illegal aliens vote in statistically significant numbers? I would think that polling places would be fairly far down the list of places someone living here illegally would want to visit. I know if I were holed up in Tegucigalpa without proper permissions, I would not be inclined to try to sneak into a Honduran election.

    Tancredo’s support would actually work against me voting for Del Lingamfelter, on the other hand Allen West’s support for Lingamfelter will be hard for anyone else in the Lt Gov field to trump.

    The two together are certainly fatal, although he might have survived one or the other.
