Tom Tancredo Named Mexican of the Year
MEXICO CITY — Because everybody in Mexico "has felt the tidal wave of his presence," Tom Tancredo has been named the Mexican of the Year by the El Heraldo de Mexico City.
"We can't seem to live with him, and if we can live without him, nobody's figured out how," the report posted on the El Heraldo web site on Saturday said.
The newspaper identified Representative Tancredo's failed run for president as perhaps the largest story in the nation in 2007. The newspaper cited Tancredo's unwavering position to end the hemorrhaging of Mexico's labor force into the United States as the main reason for their controversial choice.
