Republican presidential candidate Rep. Tom Tancredo is boycotting today's debate hosted by Univison that will be presented in the Spanish language.
Tancredo said in a press release Friday that: "It is the law that to become a naturalized citizen of this country you must have knowledge and understanding of English, including a basic ability to read, write, and speak the language. So what may I ask are our presidential candidates doing participating in a Spanish speaking debate?"
Republican National Hispanic Assembly chairman Danny Vargas said that Tancredo is missing a chance to reach out to voters saying that: "You've got third generation Americans who maybe just prefer watching the programing on that particular channel. It's the fifth largest network (in terms of viewers) in the country."
