Until Thompson enters the race. : )
I’ll support just about any of them that gets the nomination, including Thompson. Until then, conservatives should be pushing the best guy forward. That is Hunter, with or w/o Thompson in the race.
I’ve heard Fred Thompson is more of a moderate according to his voting record while Hunter is more of a true conservative - especially on illegal immigration and abortion issues.
Thompson voted YES on allowing more foreign workers into the US for farm work.
And - Voted to create a national registry containing names of U.S. workers who want to perform temporary or seasonal agricultural work, and to require the Attorney General to allow more foreign workers into the U.S. for farm work under H-2A visas.
Reference: Bill S.2260 ; vote number 1998-233 on Jul 23, 1998
Voted YES on visas for skilled workers.
This bill expanded the Visa program for skilled workers.
Status: Bill Passed Y)78; N)20; NV)2
Reference: The American Competitiveness Act; Bill S. 1723 ; vote number 1998-141 on May 18, 1998
I’ve not really seen that much on him and that makes me wonder about Thompson - but - I’m sure that information will open up once he declares he is a candidate! You know the media digs up everything!
Ducan Hunter on other hand has this record:
He is strongly prolife.
He voted YES on preventing tipping off Mexicans about Minuteman Project. (Jun 2006)
Voted YES on reporting illegal aliens who receive hospital treatment. (May 2004)
Voted NO on extending Immigrant Residency rules. (May 2001)
Voted NO on more immigrant visas for skilled workers. (Sep 1998)
Rated 100% by FAIR, indicating a voting record restricting immigration. (Dec 2003)
Fred Thompson is not Duncan Hunter...
But he could play him in a movie.
