John McCain no sheriff on immigration

Senator John “The Sheriff” McCain does not talk straight on immigration. Despite his current campaign rhetoric that he heard the American people and implication he will stop trying to grant illegal aliens amnesty, his record shows he has consistently ignored them on the issue.

Supporting mass amnesty. The May 29, 2003, Tucson Citizen quoted Mr. McCain as stating that “Amnesty has to be an important part of” any immigration solution. He was part of the bipartisan coalition that tried to pass amnesty legislation in 2006 and 2007. In 2006 he voted in favor of S. 2611, legislation that would reward between 10 and 11 million illegals with amnesty if they apply for legal status and pay a $2,000 fine.

Supporting in-state tuition for illegal aliens. Mr. McCain was a cosponsor of S. 774, the Dream Act, providing in-state tuition for illegal aliens. The legislation would have enabled illegal aliens who entered the United States before age 16 to obtain a green card and then use their newly acquired status to obtain green cards for the millions of parents who illegally brought their children with them into the United States. Mr. McCain missed a Senate vote on the issue in October. He said that he would have opposed it on the Senate floor had he been there to vote.

Voted to kill border fence. In 2006, Mr. McCain voted for an amendment to S. 2611 offered by Sen. Arlen Specter to require consultation with the Mexican government concerning the construction of fencing along the U.S.-Mexican border. According to Numbers USA, an organization that lobbies against illegal immigration, this amendment would have effectively guaranteed that the border fence was never built.

Voted against permanently barring gang members and terrorists from the United States. Last year, Mr. McCain voted against an amendment (Senate Amendment 1184) introduced by Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, that would have permanently barred gang members, terrorists, sex offenders, alien absconders, aliens convicted of domestic violence and aliens convicted of at least three DUIs from the United States. The Cornyn Amendment was rejected on a 51-46 vote.

Voted in favor of Social Security benefits to illegal aliens who commit identity fraud. In 2006. Mr. McCain joined with Mr. Kennedy in working to defeat an amendment by Sen. John Ensign, Nevada Republican, that would have barred Social Security credits for work being done prior to their receiving amnesty — in other words, while working under a false Social Security number. The Ensign Amendment, (Senate Amendment 3985) was defeated on a 50-49 vote.

So, hypothetically as President, John McCain would give amnesty to a mother who was also a gang member, had been convicted of identity theft, been ordered deported, yet absconded while her son served in Iraq. John McCain would grant her amnesty because of her son’s noble service to our nation. It seems that “The Sheriff” would pick and choose which laws to enforce.

South Carolina primary voters have a chance this Saturday to speak loudly to John McCain and every candidate and say border security first and no amnesty for illegal aliens. They can say that by not voting for John McCain.

    As a registered New Hampshire independant voter who voted for John McCain in the 2000 primary, a senior citizen, a U.S. Navy veteren, a Father and a Grandfather, I did not vote for John McCain in the recent 2008 primary held here in NH. I cannot support this man for President or anything else for that matter, this mans positions on illegal immigration (amnesty) and voting to give Social Security $$$$ to those who have not paid into the system (give me a break)! Our children are working everyday and are paying into social security every week and are being told that there will be no social security benefits for them when they are ready to retire, and this fool McCain votes to give social security benefits $$$$ to people that do not pay into it and do not deserve it. There is something seriously wrong with that kind of thinking by a sitting United States Senator who is a candidate for President of the United States. That issue alone is enough for me not to even consider this guy as for President, and then there is the illegal immigration amnesty issue, along with the McCain Feingold bill, and the list goes on and on. I will not support John McCain for President. I cannot support John McCain for President.
