Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.
For former Sen. Fred Thompson (ABC’s This Week): Your “Border Security and Immigration Reform” plan says: “Do not provide legal status to illegal aliens. Amnesty undermines U.S. law and policy…”
But on the 4/3/06 edition of “Hannity and Colmes,” you said:
…because we allowed ourselves to wait until we woke up one day and found 12 million illegals here, there’s no easy solution. And I think that you have to realize that you’re either going to drive 12 million people underground permanently, which is not a good solution.
You’re going to get them all together and get them out of the country, which is not going to happen. Or you’re going to have to, in some way, work out a deal where they can have some aspirations of citizenship…
How can you give “some aspirations of citizenship” to 12 million illegal immigrants, without providing them “legal status?”
