Tancredo At UNC For Illegal Immigration Talk

Tancredo at UNC for illegal immigration talk

The News and Observer (Raleigh), April 13, 2009

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a leading critic of U.S. immigration policy, will be in Chapel Hill on Tuesday to speak against the admission of illegal immigrants to colleges and universities.

Tancredo, who unsuccessfully ran for president last year, will talk at UNC-Chapel Hill's Bingham Hall at 6:30 p.m.

His speech is sponsored by a student group called Youth for Western Civilization. It is a new group that opposes mass immigration, 'radical multiculturalism' and affirmative action. Several campuses have chapters of the group.

Tancredo, a Republican from Colorado, is the sponsor of the Mass Immigration Reduction Act that would have imposed an indefinite moratorium on immigration to the United States.
