Fred Thompson speaks out on immigration issues

Immigration is in my top three list or priorities for a Presdidential nominee. These are the type of things I've been waiting to hear...

On his campaign swing through Florida, Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson has hammered away illegal immigration, saying that America must secure its borders to ensure national security.[snip]

Friday, he went a step further.Thompson, a former senator from Tennessee, said it might be time to reconsider the country's long-standing practice -- one prescribed by the Constitution -- of granting citizenship to any child born on U.S. soil

"That law was created in another time and place for valid reasons," Thompson said during a campaign stop here. "It probably needs to be revisited." [snip]

All have taken a hard line against illegal immigration but as of Friday no other contender has gone as far as Thompson.
