Tancredo formally announces ’08 bid

"Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) formally announced Monday that he is running for president and said his campaign would be focused on combating illegal immigration.

“I am running for president to give Americans a voice, to win this fight [on illegal immigration],” Tancredo said in his announcement address on an Iowa talk-radio show.

The Colorado Republican is widely known as an ardent supporter of tight border security and an opponent of amnesty or guest-worker programs that could lead to citizenship for people who came to the U.S. illegally. He is currently serving his fifth term in the House of Representatives and founded the House Immigration Reform Caucus in 1999.

Tancredo has made waves with comments suggesting that the U.S. could retaliate for future terrorist attacks by bombing Muslim holy sites and likening parts of Miami to a Third World country." -- TheHill.com
