Border control advocate and former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo has enthusiastically endorsed Congressman Steve Stockman's bid to return to Capitol Hill.

"On the important issues of immigration lowering taxes, returning to constitutional spending levels, maintaining a strong national defense, restoring the right to keep and bear arms and ending abortion, Congressman Stockman is the only proven conservative in the race," said Tancredo.

"On May 29th, conservative Republicans are voting to return Congressman Steve Stockman to Congress. I urge you to join them," said Tancredo.

Stockman and Tancredo share similar views on the importance of effective border-control.

"The GOP establishment feels that a push for effective border-control might hurt us with the fast-growing Hispanic vote," says Steve.

They're ambitious and want to improve their situation economically. Why should they always have to compete with illegal newcomers who will continually undercut their hard-earned wages?"

Stockman is running for election to Congress in the May 29th Republican primary for the brand-new 36th Congressional District. Congressman Stockman previously much of the new district, including fast-growing Chambers County and the NASA area.

In addition to Tancredo, Stockman's growing list of such endorsers includes gun owners, right-to-life groups and other conservative organizations.

The 36th District covers all of Polk, Tyler, Jasper Newton, Liberty, Hardin, Orange and Chambers Counties, along with southeast Harris County including Baytown, the Port of Houston and the Johnson
