Tancredo With A Novel Idea: Deport Entire Cities

Tom Tancredo would be the first President in American history to cede US territory:

Tom Tancredo has pushed hard throughout his career for a fence along the Mexican border. Now that one has been enacted into law, though, actual construction has been thwarted by mayors along the Southern border who don't want the fence disrupting their communities and local commerce.

So Tancredo has an interesting solution: He would "build the border fence north of these communities."

"These mayors have already demonstrated that their hearts and loyalties lie with Mexico," Tancredo said. "Perhaps they'd feel more comfortable if their cities were geographically located there as well."

You see how this could go. Border mayors immediately see how a fence impedes their economic and social progress. Tancredo moves the fence in a bit. Then the new mayors are faced with the same problem. And so on, until America is composed of a sliver of Minnesota and Maine.

It's the new Manifest Destiny!

What's scary is that if he uses this line in the debate tonight, it'd get the biggest cheer imaginable.
