McCain backs off migrant claim
East Valley Tribune.com ^ | Ryan Gabrielson

Posted on 05/18/2005 8:31:33 AM PDT by Boston Blackie

"If we went down to the Camelback Inn today in Phoenix and arrested everyone who’s working there illegally, the place would probably shut down," McCain was quoted as saying in The Hill, a nonpartisan newspaper covering politics in the nation’s capitol.

We should put McCain's suggestion to the test. Where are those INS enforcers?

If what McCain says is true, then the Camelback Inn is obviously a criminal enterprise and should be closed.

McCain is a moron.

I recall during the Election of 2000 when he asked Republicans to join his team of Democrats. He said, "Join Us, Join Us."

Put a lid on it, it reeks.

So McCain the elitist cites this as a reason to let the illegal aliens stay! So McCain and his elitist friends don't have to pay more when they stay at places like this. Or make less profit for the places they own.

Shudder to think that actual American citizens could have jobs there. Why, the horror!

This is as deep as McCains thinking goes on this topic. He has absolutely no concern for Americans. Just his business buddies and their profits.

McCain is a moron.

And reportedly one of the two front-runners for our party's nomination in 2008. And the press likes him.

Scary isnt it!

Surely you jest. When the illegal aliens had a rally on Capitol Hill a couple of weeks ago demanding amnesty, there wasn't one law enforcement body in sight, let alone someone from ICE. They advertised that they were going to be there, showed up for the (actually pretty lame, with ANSWER selling Marxist tracts and books about Che) protest, and no one thought a little raid from the Migra would be in order. The tourists were dumbfounded.

I'm guessing the Camelback Inn management didn't contribute their fare share to McCain's re-election kitty.

I doubt he will make it. He isn't pretty and I think that's a factor. : D

I wonder if McCain can be charged as an accessory to the crime. He obviously knew it was happening and failed to report it; perhaps even encouraged it.

Ya know, it sounds more and more like McCain might have illegal help himself. His pointing to Camelback Inn sounds like that ill concieved excuse, "Well, everybody is doing it!"

If I remember right, the Camelback Inn is a pretty fancy place. Why can't they hire Americans?

Did anyone notice the trailers for the new TV movie that's being advertised about McCain the Vietnam hero, residing at the Hanoi Hilton for many years? I doubt that many Arizona citizens think of him as a hero anymore. I think the movie is supposed to be a push for his possible presidential race.

If he runs he might lose his own state because of his love for illegal immigration.

Better idea, violate a federal crime = asset seizure. How long would it take if the Camelback Inn was seized for the rest of the employers to get the message?

Pour encourager les autres!

Fox's 'apology' to the US over the black workers remark was aimed at black voters in LA. Last election, the black vote went to Hahn, the white candidate. This time, blacks voted for the Hispanic...ooops, Latino candidate. NPR discussed the election this am and said Hahn had been an inept campaigner, didn't put out a positive ad about himself. LA is gone. They'll pander to the Mexican/Latino vote. Goodbye Protestant work ethic, US culture, mores, English, productivity, etc.. They'll vote themselves into a mini Mexico or worse.

He's the republican the media likes. That should be enough to disqualify him right there, which it is, but it's confusing because the media is'nt ever going to report that.

He looks a little bit like Ike, but Ike was tall and lean, and McCain is short and dumpy. And soft looking. And old looking, isn't he a bit elderly to be looking for a job like that?

That's ridiculous... everybody knows the Indians (from India) would move right in and claim their old jobs back.

Course many of them are still employed because they tended to OWN the motels they worked at.

This will probably get removed, but wouldn't Fox have said "Negro" rather than Black? Nobody but nobody would have the nerve to translate THAT word directly.

I've always told my sons that, if they are ever really desperate for a job, go down to a certain restaurant in Phoenix, stick your head in the door and yell, "La Migra!"
They'll have 20-30 vacancies immediately.

Yep, country-club 'moderate' Republicans love unskilled immigration.

And if they're not desperate for a job, do it for their country.

I wonder how he would feel if illegals were standing in front of his Central Ave. home?

I will bet that he has illegals as landscapers.
