(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.
