If John McCain thinks he's a wacko bird then he must be pretty good. McCain is one of the worst, if not THE WORST, legislators of all time. His choice of legislating buddies, Teddy Kennedy, is indicative of that.
I am not a supporter of John McCain but I would have like to see him make a better choice for vice President in his bid for the Presidency in 2008 that looks a little wacko and I am quite sure many people, not on this forum but, out there is of the opinion that, that cannot bring him a fraction close to what the Tea Party has produced so far.

I wouldn't vote for McCain if he had George Washington for his VP candidate. Same goes for Obama and Hillary.

He said "I don't think it's fair for legal immigrants that illegal immigrants would be put on a path to citizenship". Was it fair thought when his father came from Cuba illegally and got his citizenship right away ?

The only path that all these confusing ideology and opinions on immigration reform are leading to is a road heading towards Cheap labor and illegal immigration forever,I'm ready to bet on that.

The Actual Cost Of Illegal Aliens

The Latest Reports
Finding good figures on what illegal aliens cost is difficult because public officials typically do not include everything the immigrants consume. In June, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) published a report on the cost of illegal immigration that does include everything. It demonstrates the staggering result of the federal government’s paralysis on the border issue. According to FAIR, illegal aliens cost American taxpayers $113 billion annually. Broken down, the direct cost to the federal government is about $29 billion, while the states pick up the remaining share of about $84 billion. Illegals cost each household in America, meaning the households of citizens who pay taxes,$1,117. The largest expense for illegals is educating their American-born children, some $52 billion. Not surprisingly, the states with the highest number of illegals also pay the most to feed, educate, house, doctor, and jail them.

California’s price tag for its 2.55 million illegals, FAIR reports, is $21.8 billion annually. As FAIR concludes, the cost of illegals accounts for all of the budget deficits California and New York now face in 2011:“With many state budgets in deficit, policymakers have an obligation to look for ways to reduce the fiscal burden of illegal migration. California, facing a budget deficit of $14.4 billion in 2010-2011, is hit with an estimated $21.8 billion in annual expenditures on illegal aliens. New York’s $6.8 billion deficit is smaller than its $9.5 billion in yearly illegal alien costs.” Conclusion for these two states? Get rid of the illegals, the deficits disappear.

Why did Arizonans pass their controversial law that permitted police to check the immigration status of those with whom they have a lawful contact? It wasn’t just because illegals murder ranchers and are conducting what amounts to open warfare on these beleaguered Southwestern Americans. They are breaking the state financially. According to FAIR, illegals cost Arizonans $2.57 billion annually.

Regardless who you would like to vote for the Presidency belongs to the DEMs in the foreseeable unless immigration reform recaptures conservatives Latinos back into its camp without a reform bill Tea Party and the GOP will crack and cannot hold together for too long, ready to bet on that too.

Most Republicans would rather lose many elections then forfeit their beliefs to placate foreign criminal elements. We already have many immigration laws. They have served this country for generations until the Democrats opened the borders for votes. We can wait. Leave the bastards in the shadows until they are tired of hiding out, and go home to apply for legal entry. We have no use for them.

Senator Cruz takes his job serious. If he wants a rewrite on that atrocious bill he will deride it until he gets one. He is from Texas, I think. They don't take no for an answer, especially if the question come from a liberal Senate!! We have immigration laws, and it is time we honored them!!
Well said. We need some new law if we aren't going to demand that the current laws are enforced.

After America has been forced to realize can't trust Obama or these new kind of "democrats" he surrounds himself with over the last couple of months it will be hard for this Bill to Pass.

It's just too important. Too many parts of the Bill henge on HIM keeping HIS side of the Bargain not just making fancy speeches and then claiming "to know NOTHING" when the promises are broken and the shite hits the fan.

Ted Cruz is hilarious. He is the one opposing this bill which will clearly fix our broken immigration system yet he is blaming the guy who clearly supports it.

You have to start following the news more closely.

Obama has deported more people than his predecessor. He also deported more people then the 12 presidents before Bush COMBINED.
