On July 26, 2005 the Associated Press reported, "Hispanic and Muslim groups called on Rep. Tom Tancredo to resign Monday, saying he has embarrassed Colorado by suggesting that Americans bomb Islamic holy sites if terrorists launch a nuclear attack on the United States. They also criticized the GOP congressman's staunch advocacy of tougher immigration controls. 'Enough is enough. We're here to say "Stop,"' Hispanic activist Manolo Gonzalez-Estay told a crowd of about 200 people at the state Capitol... Tancredo's spokesman, Will Adams, said the four-term congressman would not comment on the rally, but has no intention of apologizing or resigning."
