To almost no national notice that I can see, Representative Tom Tancredo scored a great victory on Friday morning:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. House of Representatives this morning voted to withhold federal emergency services funding for "sanctuary cities" that protect illegal immigrants. Anti-illegal immigration champion Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., sponsored the measure, which he says would apply to cities such as Denver and Boulder. He was elated by its passage, which stunned critics and supporters alike....Tancredo said he thinks his amendment is an indicator that the House would crush the reform plan if it passes in the Senate.
