As if on cue from David's essay yesterday, McCain has been having late-night meetings with Hispanic leaders....
CHICAGO (AP) - Republican presidential John McCain assured Hispanic leaders he would push through Congress legislation to overhaul federal immigration laws if elected, several people who attended a private meeting with the candidate said Thursday.
Democrats questioned why the Arizona senator held the meeting late Wednesday night in Chicago. But supporters who were in the room denied that McCain held the closed-door session out of fear of offending conservatives, many of whom want him to take a harder line on immigration.
Both McCain and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama support giving legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, but neither has made the issue a centerpiece of the campaign. At one time, McCain's campaign suffered because of his stance on the issue.
As far as illegal immigration goes, both of the presidential candidates are equal unmitigated disasters. Neither has any, any plans to enforce the existing immigration, labor, or deportation laws, and both want to fast-track tens of millions of unassimilated, dependent Mexicans on the path toward citizenship. And what do 20million low income, hand-out mentality, disregard for the rule of law citizens spell? 20million new democrats, that's what.
Here's Johnny Mac glad-handing Hispanic voters who he's trying to seduce into voting for him by promising to grant them unfettered access to Americas tax coffers by making them legal citizens. Good grief!
