McCain to Hispanic Chamber of Commerce: I'll Fight for Amnesty as Long as 'I'm Alive and Breathing'
breitbart.com ^ | 3/28/14 | Tony Lee

Posted on 03/28/2014 2:02:11 PM PDT by cotton1706

In remarks to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) vowed to fight for amnesty as long as he is a breathing United States Senator.

McCain, according to BuzzFeed, also said that if comprehensive immigration reform passes, he would "make sure it is forever called the Edward M. Kennedy immigration bill." McCain and the late Kennedy tried to pass the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill last decade, along with President George W. Bush. Conservatives halted the measure because it would have reduced the wages of American workers while not solving the illegal immigration problem.

The high-tech lobby, the Chamber of Commerce, and the same groups that wanted amnesty then are redoubling their efforts this year, which amnesty advocates like Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) have said may be the last chance for such legislation.

McCain's former immigration aide, Becky Tallent, is now House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) top aide on immigration. Boehner has said that he and President Barack Obama want to get immigration reform legislation "done" this year.

Other speakers throughout the week at Hispanic Chamber of Commerce events included Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), who said that amnesty legislation was inevitable, and Vice President Joe Biden, who stated that he believed illegal immigrants were "already American citizens."

Last year, McCain vowed that amnesty advocates would try to get comprehensive immigration reform through Congress after the GOP primaries in 2014. That window seems to be somewhere in the next three months. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that if amnesty legislation passes this year, it would pass by June.

It’s just about April. The House has until the July 4th recess or from September/October to ram immigration through. And I don’t like the look of that voice vote yesterday. Time is running out for them and they know it.

“I guess I have another new prayer.”

You (and I) should have been praying that he’d never leave the Hanoi Hilton, but we didn’t know at the time what we should be praying for. He was a crappy pilot who lost four aircraft. His daddy Admiral kept him in the Navy, when he should have been washed out long before he got shot down. Sorry he suffered in captivity, but he’s paid us all back for twenty-five years “serving us” in the Senate.

McCain’s immigration policy is no different from the open borders policies of George H.W. Bush or his son George W. Bush. Bob Dole would have been the same if he had been elected in 1996. Both Bush’s deliberately failed to control the border. George W. wanted a pathway to citizenship for the illegals. Romney would have been the same.

Face it, the elites benefit from cheap labor. Housekeepers, gardeners, nannies, kitchen help at home and the club. Cheap labor to keep the middle class from pushing for higher wages (like in the old America where standards of living did rise).

The Republican Party, is pro amnesty. McCain is just a loud mouthpiece for the policy most of the rest of the party pols support.

He's too liberal and too stupid! Which I suppose, makes him just right to be a senior Republican!

Romney was no better. Bush was the same... And I’m fairly certain we will never be offered a real option in the general election of 2016. Article 5! Call your local state rep. and DEMAND it!

I hope he has a stroke or gets hit by a bus or gets run over by an illegal driving an unregistered car.

If Mexico were to agree to keep McCain I might be willing to grant amnesty to a trespassing Mexican or two.
