Tom Tancredo Won't Be On Univision Tonight

Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo is not participating in the Republican Presidential Forum on Univision tonight. He wrote an op-ed in the Miami Herald this week, saying that the reason he won't participate is because he feels it encourages Hispanics to not assimilate into American life and isolate
s the Hispanic community
from the rest of the country.
America has always been a country of immigrants. Lots of Americans conduct their daily lives and business in other languages. It seems that we should do what we can to encourage engagement in the political process, and candidates should reach out to the voting public in whatever way they can, whether it be in “Korean, French, Farsi or Spanish.”
