"Enough is Enough" Protest

Critics of Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo gather at the state Capitol to protest what they call a growing sentiment against immigrants.

The event stems from remarks Tancredo made to a Florida radio station ten days ago, but the GOP congressman says his comments were taken out of context.

Tancredo suggested to WFLA radio that the United States could take out Islamic holy sites if Muslims targeted America in a nuclear strike.

He has refused repeated calls for an apology, even though the U.S. State Department has called the statement "insulting and offensive." The Anti-Defamation League has called Tancredo's remarks outrageous, inflammatory and un-American.

The rally is being called "Enough is Enough."
