Arizona Senator John McCain talks immigration with LA Area Chamber of Commerce (MCAMNESTY ALERT)
KUOR-FM 89.1 Southern Calif. Public Radio Redlands, Calif. ^ | 2010-03-16 | Kitty Felde

Posted on 03/16/2010 1:42:08 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

This weekend, dozens of Southern Californians plan to march in Washington for immigration reform, joining thousands of activists from around the country. Today, a different group of Southern Californians – members of the L.A. Area Chamber of Commerce – heard from a U.S. senator who took a lot of political heat for his efforts at immigration reform.

The question arose at lunch during the Chamber’s annual lobbying trip to Washington. What did Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona think the U.S. should do about the “flood of immigrants” “running over” California?

McCain cosponsored the last major immigration reform bill with the late Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy. That measure died and GOP rivals criticized McCain for his efforts.

McCain told the Chamber that it now was up to President Obama to outline his immigration agenda. "He talks about immigration reform," McCain said. "I want to see his proposal! He’s the president of the United States. I’d like to see a proposal from the president of the United States and I’d like to review. So far, that has not happened."

McCain told the L.A. Chamber secure borders were important, particularly with the rise in drug violence in Mexico. But he also made the case for a temporary legal worker program using tamper-proof identification cards.

"In the long term, if you alienate the Hispanics,
you’ll pay a heavy price. By the way,
I think the fence is least effective.
But I’ll build the G****mned fence if they want it!"

U.S. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, FEB. 2007

"We need to sit down as Americans
and recognize these are God’s children as well.
And they need some protection under the law;
they need some of our love and compassion
I want to assure you that I’ll enforce the borders first.
We’ll solve this immigration problem."

U.S. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, 28 NOV. 2007

"There are jobs that Americans will not do,
so we have to make it possible for someone to come
to this country to do a job that an American won’t do
and then go back to the country from where they came."

U.S. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, 16 OCT. 2004

Just say no to Senator McCain

Here is an example of how utterly STUPID John McCain is.

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/62027

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told senators it is a national security concern that people from countries with ties to terrorism could ‘potentially’ gain entry into the United States by crossing the country’s southern border.

But according to the Department of Homeland Security’s own reports, thousands of people from 14 “special interest” countries already have come into the United States illegally, including some across the U.S.-Mexico border. (The State Department designates some nations as “special interest” counties because of their links to terrorism.)

******McCain responded: “Countries of special interest – people could come up through our southern border?” [DUH!!!]

“Potentially, yes,” Napolitano said.

Obama on immigration (on the campaign trail)

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION
Obama’s speech to La Raza:

(La Raza (The Race), Largest Hispanic organization in the U.S.
LaRaza lobbies for racial preferences, bilingual education, stricter hate crimes laws, mass immigration, and amnesty for illegal aliens )

Obama said the recent Senate immigration debate “was both ugly and racist in a way we haven’t seen since the struggle for civil rights.” !!
SHAMEFUL!

Obama told La Raza that the mass protests lately of for immigration rights of Mexicans is equal in greatness to the civil rights protest of the past!!
SHAMEFUL!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEITOQfKVmo

Barack Hussein Obama: “I walked the walk. I talked the talk. I marched with you for “civil rights” of “immigrants”. (!!)

SHAMEFUL!

* He supports granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.
* He supports extending welfare to illegal immigrants.
* He voted YES on “comprehensive immigration reform,” a codeword for amnesty.
* He voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.

Omama supports La Raza’s, the “DREAM Act,” which would mandate states to offer in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens — thus providing them with benefits not available to U.S. citizens from other states.
SHAMEFUL!

Obama pimps illegal aliens. Considering the additional violent crime, third word diseases they bring into this country and the billions of dollars it cost us to take care of them.
SHAMEFUL!

CHECK THIS OUT, PEOPLE:

The Heritage Foundation ^ | 10/25/06 | Robert Rector
The National Academy of Sciences has estimated that each immigrant without a high school degree will cost U.S. taxpayers, on average, $89,000 over the course of his or her lifetime. This is a net cost above the value of any taxes the immi*grant will pay and does not include the cost of educating the immigrant’s children, which U.S. taxpayers would also heavily subsidize.
In this way, the roughly six million legal immigrants without a high school diploma will impose a net cost of around a half-trillion dollars on U.S. taxpayers over their lifetimes

I have relative who own a large ranch near Laredo.
Ask them about living along the border.
It’ll make your blood boil.

They’ll tell you about having their home and other buildings broken into by illegal aliens.

The’ll tell you about being afraid every time one of their teen age children leave the house. Will the daughters be kidnapped and sold into slavery to the drug cartels?

They’ll tell you about farm animals and guard dogs being killed.

They’ll tell you about the trail of filth that illegal aliens leave on their property that has to be cleaned up- dirty diapers, paper and plastic containers, clothes and human excretement.

They’ll tell you about the rotting corpse left on their property by an illegal alien pack leader.

They’ll tell you about the neighbor who was fired upon by an illegal alien, returned fire and was reprimanded by the local sheriff.

You are correct. Why isn't she? I can only assume that, since she ran as his running mate previously and is campaigning for him now, that she agrees, at least in large part, with his positions.

Personally, I don't care less how she feels about it.

The fact is, anyone supporting amnesty, supporting other candidates who support amnesty, open borders, voluntarily aids and abets illegal aliens in anyway, or that refuses to publicly support laws and legislation that strictly prohibits employers form hiring illegal aliens through criminal and civil actions, or that fails to support laws and actions that would enforce immigrations control, border control and strict immigration reform, for both legal and illegal immigration, will not benefit from our votes.

No offense, but did you major in stupidity?

Maybe you some of folks in Ohio are a little slow to catch on, but most here in the southwest have nothing left but searing contempt for anyone supporting amnesty in anyway.

Once again, anyone supporting amnesty, supporting other candidates who support amnesty, open borders, voluntarily aids and abets illegal aliens in anyway, or that refuses to publicly support laws and or legislation that strictly prohibits employers form hiring illegal aliens through criminal and civil actions, or that fails to support laws and actions that would enforce immigrations control, border control and strict immigration reform, for both legal and illegal immigration, will not benefit from our votes.
