Fred Thompson predicts immigration reform bill will fail

The immigration reform bill worked out late last week by Senate Republicans and Democrats likely will fail, former senator and possible presidential candidate Fred Thompson said here Sunday.

One can only hope and pray it will.

Thompson, speaking at the National Restaurant Association annual show, said the bill will not win the support of the American people because they don’t trust senators’ promises to block illegal immigrants from crossing the Mexican border into the U.S.

Truthfully, it’s been a really long time since I had any trust for a politician, at any level.

“Nobody believes them. It goes to the bigger issue of the lack of credibility our government has these days,” said Thompson, who was greeted with hoots and applause from the 2,300 convention attendees who filled a ballroom at the McCormick Place convention center.

Didn’t the Dhimmis tell us they were listening to the ‘will of the people’? Well, when are they going to actually put that in action? The will of the people does NOT include an over bloated bill that does diddly to protect our nation from the invasion that is in progress.

Among the loudest ovations came when the possibility of Thompson running for president was mentioned.

On that subject, Thompson remained coy, while saying he was not being coy. Current speculation has Thompson making a decision in mid-June, a timetable that he did not dispute when one of his questioners suggested it.

Run, Fred! Run!
