Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.

Tim Kaine

Governor of the state of Virginia and, as of 1/4/09, Barack Obama's choice to be Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Not only does Kaine fully support illegal immigration (also here) and giving college discounts to illegal aliens, but he's not very bright; consider this 2006 quote:

"I don't believe immigration is one of the top issues in Virginia if you ask Virginians... It does matter to a number of people, but compared to jobs, education, health care, transportation, it's pretty far down."

Needless to say, illegal and massive immigration touch on all those issues, even if Kaine was unable to figure that out.

In September 2007, he selected an person allegedly linked to a Muslim group to a state immigration panel; the selection later resigned. In the same year, he came out against state troopers enforcing immigration laws via 287g. In 2005, his campaign was sanctioned for sending out a misleading flyer.

Is Tim Kaine intelligent enough to run Virginia? - 02/01/06

Virginia's Democratic governor Tim Kaine said the following yesterday: "I don't believe immigration is one of the top issues in Virginia if you ask Virginians... It does matter to a number of people, but compared to jobs, education, health care, transportation, it's pretty far down." Does he actually mean this? Because, if he does he's probably not bright enough to run that state. Massive illegal...

Virginia governor Tim Kaine responds to Bush's speech here: The failure of the federal government to implement and enforce a rational immigration policy has resulted in a confusing patchwork of state and local efforts.

How out of touch is Morton Kondracke? - 01/10/06

... Kilgore (R) lost to Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine (D) despite ads that attacked Kaine's support for a day-labor site in suburban Herndon and education for immigrant children. The ad concluded, "What part of illegal doesn't Kaine understand?" The Kilgore race appears to have hinged on something else. As for Gilchrist, Mort completely distorts the significance of that 25%. For instance, on election day,...

Virginia governor candidate Tim Kaine spins, misses on pro-illegal immigration stance - 10/29/05

The Democrat has said local governments -- not the state -- should decide whether to use public funding for day-laborer sites, such as the one that was approved in Herndon in August, the aides said. That's just a dodge. Kaine could blame local...
