McCain: If the Administration Doesn’t Enforce Border Security Provisions, ‘We Can Go To Court’
Cybercast News Service ^ | August 27, 2013 - 3:10 PM | Eric Scheiner

When asked how voters could be confident that the Department of Homeland Security will enforce the border security elements of the Senate's “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) replied that “we can go to court.”

“We have the court system. That’s the way our government runs. If the executive branch does not enforce laws, then we can go to court and make sure tat those laws are enforced,” McCain said Tuesday while participating in an immigration town hall. …

He would never go to court over the lack of enforcement of existing laws, though.

Worse than that. Crammed into the treads, AND in the space between the heel and the sole.

Using the courts to enforce the law. Didn’t Texas AG Abbott try that routine and look what happened? He lost nearly all the lawsuits he filed against Obama.

The USA has hundreds of unenforced laws on the books, mainly because enforcement of the laws are not funded. Depending on the court system for funding is nonsense.

This entire effort is a repeat of the 1986 laws that were never enforced. We do not need new laws to secure our borders, do we? Does McCain believe that the voters are that dumb?

Odumbo has been constantly packing the district and circuit and Supreme courts with his liberal judges who will ensure that the system McLame is talking about will be useless.

Yes. The thought of passing a law that you know will not be enforced, then fighting for enforcement in the courts, is a lame as it can get. Especially since McCain doesn’t want enforcement to start with. F McCain.

Has McCain gone to court over unconstitutional recess appointments, Obama’s Dream Act, or countless other illegal actiona by the President? No.

McCain in an idiot and traitor to those who voted for him.

McCain is a joke and so is our court system.

Hitlers German courts were the only example of a worse system.

Our Judges do not use the law they ask Obama what he wants done.

Thanks Justice Roberts.

McCain is the stupid that just can’t be fixed.

Why on Earth would you even collaborate to pass a law when you KNOW the other side’s provisions will be enforced—yours will be ignored.

Separated at birth? Has John McCain ever been seen with Hans Blix?

If Obama doesn't enforce the new law, like he's not enforcing the old law, John McCain is going to be very, very angry and may be so angry to write Obama a letter. Eeewww! That's going to be scary.

Yes court always works out so well , especially when it’s stacked with left wing judges, and when the president ignores rulings.

You can go to Hell, John McShame.

Well, Juan, if you’ll go court and force Obama to enforce existing immigration laws (and others), then after the laws have been enforced for five or more years, maybe we’ll listen to whatever else you have to say.

(Still waiting for you to push for those tough, “enforce the border first” provisions you promised during the Republican primaries of 2008, and also during your senate re-election campaign in 2010.)

McCain is a dumb ass. Go to court? you mean like the pubbies do now?

The USA has a mountain of laws concerning border enforcement.

None of them are enforced.

None of them are litigated by pubbies.

Is this POS referring to the “old Supreme Court” or the new one staffed by “hand picked” Communists and Socialists?

One other thought...now-days anything that goes to court you will probably die of old age before it is resolved...if at all.

McCrap knows that.

Ever notice how these people never retire? Are they afraid of having to live under the laws they pass for the rest of us or something.

Thankfully, God has His own version of term limits.

McCain lamebrain comment of the week. Lawsuits are to prevent enforcing immigration law, not to make Bush or Obama enforce them.

McCain knows exactly what he is doing, and is deliberately lying like never before. McCain believes that he can tell us one whopper after another, because out stupidity knows no bounds. I find it difficult to impeach his reasoning.
