Tom Tancredo Refuses To Debate Because They Are Speaking Spanish

Tom Tancredo refused to participate in the Spanish-language debate with his fellow GOP presidential candidates in Miami on Sunday, and accused the other candidates of “pandering.” “It is the law that to become a naturalized citizen of this country you must have knowledge and understanding of English, including a basic ability to read, write, and speak the language,” Tancredo said. “So what may I ask are our presidential candidates doing participating in a Spanish speaking debate?” “Bilingualism is a great asset for any individual, but it has perilous consequences for a nation,” Tancredo said. “As such, a Spanish debate has no place in a presidential campaign.” Tancredo has made immigration a centerpiece of his candidacy. His two campaign ads have focused on border security and threats ranging from terrorist to gangs.
