There is a rumor that Fred Thompson, former Senator from Tennessee, is going to announce an exploratory committee this week.
Regarding immigration, which I consider to be the most important issue, his performance as Senator was rather lackluster. Overall, ABI gives him a career grade of C; on chain migration, C; visa lottery, C-; reducing unnecessary visas, F; on reducing asylum fraud, C-; on reducing amnesties, D; and on interior enforcement, C+. Although he was tough on border control, he was lacking in almost every other area.
To boot, he supports some other left-wing causes, like affirmative action, and supports suicidal free trade policies like those supported by Bush, McCain, the Clintons, and most other globalists.Â Thompson also is a “fellow” at the neocon American Enterprise Institute.
