The Congressman was scheduled to be at a Miami restaurant Thursday to give a speech, but it was called off following reports of an alleged threat made against the restaurant where he was scheduled to speak.

Police aren't releasing details.

The Colorado Republican's remarks sparked a tense exchange with Florida Governor Jeb Bush and other local leaders last month. Tancredo says Miami is suffering because a growing number of residents don't speak English.

The lawmaker's spokesman says the restaurant canceled the speech. But the restaurant's manager says they decided earlier to ask Tancredo not to come. They said that was because his presence, and the likelihood of protesters and media that would accompany him would disrupt other holiday parties.
