John McCain on Why GOP Will Support Immigration Reform: Hispanic Votes

Republicans in Congress are suddenly on board with immigration reform -- specifically, a bipartisan plan that would create a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrations -- according to Senator John McCain.

"Well, I'll give you a little straight talk," McCain said on ABC's This Week. "Look at the last election. Look at the last election. We are losing, dramatically, the Hispanic vote, which we think should be ours, for a variety of reasons."

The "second of all" point McCain had was a little more sympathetic than explaining that Republicans need votes from Hispanic people.

"We can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows and an illegal status," McCain continued. "We cannot forever have children who were brought here by their parents when they were small children to live in the shadows as well."

As you can imagine, this is inducing bowel movements and cries of "amnesty" from Arizona's right-wing crowd.

There's no actual legislation yet, but more details are supposed on this plan supported by McCain are supposed to be announced today.

You can watch McCain talking about the plan in the video below:

Wasn't McCain recently photograghed at an Airport associating with a Neo-Nazi?!

Mcain is a Weasel with no Stature or Convictions of any kind!

He is not flopping back to the side of Immigration reform because it is "Right".

McCain and Republicans are flopping back for the almighty Vote!!

McCain flopped away for votes back before the lack of Immigration Reform Crashed, and Divided our Nation.

Just when you think that McCain and Flake are about to do something sensible, they bury their heads up their own ass.

The GOP will support immigration only for the hard-core reason of getting Latinos to vote Republican. Notice, nothing here about improving the lives of Latinos and their families. Nothing about stopping the harrassment by law enforcerment officials or breaking up families only to separate them and send them back to the country of origin. Where is the justice Senator McCain?. Where is the concern! How long will your party be "pro Latino?" That's right! For just long enough to see if you get their votes...then back to the same ole ways!!
