A town hall meeting with Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, dissolved into angry shouts and walkouts when Craig began discussing the controversial issue of immigration.Craig is the primary co-sponsor of the AgJobs amnesty which he tried to attach to an Iraq funding bill. He's also a co-sponsor of one of the versions of the DREAM Act, which would take college discounts from U.S. citizens and give them to citizens of other countries who are here illegally.
"I am sick of listening to these lies," one woman said, interrupting Craig as she left the Tuesday meeting, the Coeur d'Alene Press reported.
Stan Hess, candidate for the North Idaho College Board of Trustees, screamed at Craig as others booed. Before leaving, Hess yelled at a woman, his face inches from hers, as several people tried to separate them...
[Craig said:] "The reality is that there are 2.5 million jobs here that Americans won't do... For 20 years, immigration laws have failed. We know there's a problem and we're working on it. The first step is securing the border and we're doing that."
