MEXICO CITY - U.S. Sen. John McCain said Friday that he and other lawmakers working on an immigration overhaul will meet with President Barack Obama on Tuesday to discuss the effort to revamp the system.

McCain, a member of a bipartisan group of eight senators working on a bill, said there is still significant disagreement with the president, but he is optimistic about producing legislation that includes a path to legalization for illegal immigrants.

The White House could not immediately confirm the Tuesday meeting.

"The president of the United States has supported our efforts. In fact we will be meeting with the president on Tuesday," McCain said during a visit to Mexico.

Asked about the prospects for reaching a deal, he said: "I am guardedly optimistic that we could by the end of the next month. There's still a number of agreements that need to be made before I can assure you that we will have a resolution."

While they differ on some key details, both Obama and the Senate are contemplating legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S., tighten border security, crack down on businesses that employ illegal workers and strengthen the legal immigration system.

Expect NOTHING other than a sound bite and the normal amount of posturing by an insincere RINO.

They never learn.

No surprise from McCain but I wonder what the voters back in AZ have to say about it.

Here it comes. Instant citizenship for anyone who steps foot across the border. McCain was nearly sucessful with that while Bush was president. What do you think will happen now?

My crystal ball says that McCain will bend over for Obama and that Obama will win.

Instantly, the democrats will have millions of new voters.

“tighten border security”

`Long Ago and Far Away’ by James Taylor, Updated

Long ago, a young man sits and plays his waiting game.
But things are not the same it seems as in such tender dreams.
Slowly passing sailing ships and Sunday afternoon.
Like people on the moon I see are things not meant to be.
Where do those golden rainbows end? Why is this song so sad?
Dreaming the dreams I’ve dreamed my friend, loving the love I love
to tighten border security are just some words I’ve heard when things are being said.

That giant sucking sound that Peror alluded to back in 1992 is the sound of your nation, savings, and culture being flushed to the cesspool of Mexico.

McCain is an a-hole.
