Tom Tancredo finally succeeded today in passing a mostly symbolic bill that would punish cities that give "sanctuary" to undocumented immigrants. That is, treat them like other human beings. It's intended to whip up fervor against immigration reform that provides a path to legal status in the U.S. for millions of foreign workers.
About 50 Democrats joined this mean little bill. No need to guess whether the Arkansas Democrats included any sufficiently opportunistic and cynical to hop on any red meat demagoguery that happens to come along. Of course Mike Ross went with Tancredo.
