Fred Thompson is not looking like the great conservative hope which many have imagined. His hiring of open-borders henchman Spencer Abraham should be a dash of cold water on any fantasies that Fred is the real deal for a law-and-borders President. The writing is on the wall.

Before Abraham was energy secretary, he was the Senator from Michigan, who successfully led efforts to reduce the effectiveness of the 1996 reform legislation. He was defeated for re-election by Debbie Stabenow, in part because of his anti-enforcement politics.

How bad could Spencer Abraham be? In 1997, La Raza gave him its "Defender of the Melting Pot" award.
