Skip to comments.Standing at the border, Hayworth slams McCain on immigration
Posted on 08/15/2010 5:45:56 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
(CNN) - At a Tea Party rally Sunday on the U.S.-Mexico border in support of tough immigration laws, Arizona Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth slammed his opponent, Arizona Sen. John McCain, and turned McCain's words back on the veteran senator.
On a ranch in Hereford, Arizona, and with the border fence visible several hundred yards behind him, Hayworth also praised Arizona's new immigration law that was signed by the state's governor, who has spent the last two days campaigning with McCain.
Pulling a word from a McCain letter on immigration which first surfaced in April, Hayworth said it was time to "regularize the status of John McCain," and remove him from office.
"He may try to change the terminology," Hayworth added. "Indeed, John McCain was sending out letters earlier this spring offering the boilerplate denial, saying 'Well you know I oppose amnesty.' And then in the next paragraph saying 'we must grant concessions to these people and regularize their status.' That's the new term [for amnesty]."
Hayworth said he had "a new way to apply that term."
"To put an end to amnesty once and for all, to secure our borders, to end any of this misguided talk about open borders, it is time to 'regularize' the status of John McCain. Send him back here to be a citizen among us," Hayworth said to applause.

BUMP! GO J.D.!!!
McCain was in Lake Havasu for a fundraiser yesterday morning, with Jan Brewer...ONLY 25 PEOPLE SHOWED UP! Weird.
McCain is far too soft on immigration.
The idea is to secure the borders first last and always and then worry about what to do with the 12 million or so illegals that are here.
SECURING THE BORDERS FIRST IS ESSENTIAL AND NECESSARY BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE IS DONE ON IMMIGRATION.
Why worry? Just enforce the law and deport them all!
I don’t think this nasty little man McCain has uttered a truthful word this year.
J. D. Hayworth BUMP.
Do the right thing Arizona. Send a conservative to D.C.
I suggest hiring a baseball or football stadium and advertising free tickets to illegals who show up for a game and when they are all in the stadium and seated have the place surrounded by the police and then place every single last one of them under arrest.
I think the polls have been doctored, judging by the fact that McCain is acting like J.D. is a major threat.
Maybe Norton’s loss has put McCain on edge.
I don’t know much about J.D.Hayworth, I don’t know if he would make a good Senator.
I do know John Mccain’s record, and I wouldnt trust him to watch my dog while I left over the weekend.
We need to elect conservatives and republicans who will not bend to the democrats, who will fight them tooth and nail, not give in to them.
The dems never cave in to us so it’s about time we should never give them what they want either.
If they want a fight, let’s give it to them.
He is gone Senile.
I'm not so worried about the 12 million, it's those other 38 million that worry me.
Offer them Perros Calientes too! or you could just go with Tacos(note my fake mexican accent)
MAke it soccer.
Nope, he's always contradicted himself so many times that he forgets what lie he told last -- the difference is that it's taken until now for us to notice it, and care.
I see JD reached another donation goal. The goal was $200,000 and is currently at $201,000+.
Weird? I think its funny!
Have a good day, Hildy.
The mayor asked him to be grand marshal. He would have been in front of 10K people..but he decided to go to Havasu. ROFLMAO! The funny thing is the Mayor of our town, whom I adore, is a McCain fan. He knows I am a JD supporter and we respect each other. Even he will have a good laugh about this!
Two Liberals down, JUAN TO GO! The GOP is DEAD as a party if McLiberal returns to DC in 2011. AZ, send McRINO to the pasture. He's no friend of AZ. McAmnesty is an illegal enabler.
This is not breaking news.
Putting it in Breaking just demeans JD
Maybe the people in Havasu are smarter than elsewhere ;-)
I hear McCain hired a full time asst. just to keep track of his lies....
Hildy, I’m going to be in Las Vegas this weekend to do a radio show about my book. It will be on the Internet, so you can hear it.
Scheduled at noon on Saturday; xbizradio.net
Why is Brewer doing this big string of fundraisers with McLame? She will wipe the floor with Goddard on Nov 2nd, and her linkage with McCain is really pissing people off who normally like her. On the Stand With Arizona page there has been a lot of grumbling about it.
Don’t know, but I can only assume he’s riding on her popularity with conservatives, but it ain’t working...for either of them!
Hayworth is not to be taken seriously after stating he was glad Obama won the Presidential election rather than McCain.
One with a photographic memory ;-)
McCain: America is still the land of opportunity, were not going to erect barriers and fences.
HELLO ARIZONA!!!! You’ve made us proud with your stand against the tyrannical Obama Administration and open borders and your willingness to enforce our immigration laws!
But you’re making the same mistake you’ve made for 24 years...you are believing lies.....
The never ending stream of lies from John McCain and his supporters.
Indeed, Sen. McCain has been on the stump in Arizona of late, telling everyone how he supports SB 1070, how he wants to ‘secure the border’ and is against ‘amnesty’.
HE IS LYING, again!!! Stop letting this man use you!
How SOON we forget! But you better remember HIS WORDS!

*America is still the land of opportunity, Senator John McCain recently said. And were not going to erect barriers and fences. June 26, 2007 National Review
*SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, R-ARIZ.: I do not favor using troops because they are not trained for it. They dont have the kind of qualifications necessary. I have strongly favored us using all the technical equipment that our military has including satellites, including aircraft and other technical means. May, 2001
*McCain continues to be well, McCain, throwing out liberal lines to catch the unsuspecting. Here he promises to push the failed Kyoto treaty.
I am committed as President to pursue the efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses immediately. That includes joining Kyoto as long as we have India and China involved. It would not be fair to the planet to say the two largest growing economies who are greenhouse gas emitters are not part of it.” April, 2010
*On the View: Meghan McCain Blasts Tea Parties
Sen. John McCains daughter says the movement is filled with innate racism.
Does ANYONE think Meghan isnt doing her fathers bidding???
*On the 2008 campaign trail: McCain had been asked how debate over the immigration bill was playing politically. In the short term, it probably galvanizes our base, he said. In the long term, if you alienate the Hispanics, youll pay a heavy price. Then he added, unable to help himself, By the way, I think the fence is least effective. But Ill build the goddamned fence if they want it.

* May 29, 2003 interview: McCain: Amnesty has to be an important part because there are people who have lived in this country for 20, 30 or 40 years, who have raised children here and pay taxes here and are not citizens.
* Dec. 15, 2000 press release: McCain: I support the Latino and Immigrant Fairness Act (LIFA). Negotiations between the White House and the leadership, which endorsed more limited immigration reform, have resulted in a compromise.... this bill makes meaningful but insufficient progress on amnesty for those wrongly denied it.
Q: Should we change our Constitution to allow men like Mel Martinez, born in Cuba and Schwarzenegger, born in Austria, to stand here some night as candidates for president?
McCAIN: He and I have many similar attributes, so I have to seriously consider it.

McCain: “ Those who live closest are the ones who can get here. Everyone in the world should have the opportunity through an orderly process to come to this country.”

McCain attacked Proposition 106, an Arizona statewide referendum that was being advanced by the so-called English-only movement. McCain told the teachers, Why would we want to pass some kind of initiative that a significant portion of our population considers an assault on their heritage?
McCain was one of 10 members of congress who were honored by the National Council of La Raza, a nationwide coalition of Hispanic organizations. In a speech at a ceremony in Washington, before an audience of 500, McCain again attacked English-only initiatives. The building of our great nation is not the work of immigrants from one or two countries, McCain said, Our nation and the English language have done quite well with Chinese spoken in California, German in Pennsylvania, Italian in New York, Swedish in Minnesota, and Spanish throughout the Southwest. I fail to see the cause for alarm now.

*McCain actually said this just a few weeks ago.
President Reagan granted amnesty to two million people and that was wrong,

*This may be the ONLY time John McCain told the truth.
John McCain 2008 Prez election: no amnesty for illegal aliens could lead to France-style riots
...The man wasnt satisfied with McCains answer. He asked McCain why the U.S. couldnt execute large-scale deportations, as he had heard they did in France and other countries. The question seemed to pique McCain.
In case you hadnt noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France, McCain said. Theyve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police cant even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I dont want that in the suburbs of America.
McCain, the “maverick,” has been in Congress for 28 years, or since winning his first election in 1982. He is no longer fighting the establishment; he is the establishment. He personifies the compromise wing of the Republican Party, which has since become the dominant wing.
Hes an EMBARRASSMENT!
The thought of [John McCain] being president sends a cold chill down my spineSen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), also a senior member of the Appropriations panel, told the Boston Globe recently. He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me. Washington Post
Capitol Hill staffers rate their bosses.
Worst Follower 2. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
Show Horse 2. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
Hottest Temper 2. John McCain (R-Ariz.) known to snap at staff when the cameras are off
And this....THIS bothers me the most. John McCain has no loyalty to Arizona or this nation. He is a globalist first.
I could imagine, with a little envy, what it must have been like for the McCains who came before me to be so connected to one place; to be part of a community
It is one of the symptoms of a sociopath.
Political backscratching. Besides, who else will conservatives have to vote for?
The polls say different.
No idea why Brewer or Palin lend their names to McCain.
Johnny is getting senile. He has always been inconsistent on policy issues in general. He’s deada$$ stupid on climate change.
The man needs to retire from politics gracefully and offer no further opinions in public.
Please AZ... statesmanlike compromise is NOT what is needed these days. Waffleing went out in Jan ‘08.
I was talking about in my Mohave County. I know he’s ahead in the polls in the other counties, but he knows that Mohave County is not McCain Country.
I’m praying too, but I don’t expect an answer.
Well, all things go according to God’s plan. If we wind up sending McStain back to the Senate, then I’ll know God’s plan for the near future includes the death of America as we know it.
*scandalized gasps from the gallery*
Oh, don’t be so shocked. You think America can’t die? You think God’s got that much of a vested interest in us? For all we know, our part in God’s plan may well be nearing the end of its usefulness.
The Bible is all about Israel; it doesn’t say a single word about the United States. We may not mean all that much in the long run, except that we were needed as the birthplace of a great Idea.
He has no chance of winning, he has run a terrible campaign.
