Feb 16, 2014 McCain Presses for Immigration Overhaul This Year
By Jonathan House
I wont give up, said Mr. McCain, who has long supported overhauling the nations immigration system. We have the broadest coalition of support of any legislation Ive ever been involved in: big business, small business, evangelicals, the Catholic Church, Mr. McCain said on CNNs State of the Union.
Mr. McCain was a chief architect of legislation the Senate passed last year that would that would toughen border security, provide a path toward legal status to those in the country illegally and greatly expand the number of visas granted to foreign workers.
After signaling the House might finally push forward with the overhaul by passing legislation of its own, House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) threw cold water on the idea earlier this month, saying House Republicans didnt trust President Barack Obama to enforce any law they pass.
Mr. McCain warned that waiting until next year would be a mistake since immigration is going to have to be addressed, and doing so would not be a viable scenario in 2015 when it could hurt Republicans in the 2016 presidential election.

Nancy Pelosi and John McCain.... Who is more senile? Who is more egotistical? Who is more wacko?
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
If the GOP is complicit in this amnesty fiasco, either by taking up the Senate bill or through some piecemeal slight of hand with a series of House bills such as we hear are being cooked up of late, the GOP will cease to exist. It will not survive through the 2016 elections. The people will shun the over-tanned, glad-handing, backslapping quislings and look elsewhere for leaders who actually have the spine for the fight. Make no mistake - to me and to many, many others, amnesty is the GOP's Rubicon. Cross it at your electoral peril.
The democrats have high regard for their useful idiots.
Ah Nuc? you absolutely sure about this guy being better than a Dem? Might want to re-evaluate that.
I would say he is better than current dims. But I will keep an open mind.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow...
