Sounds like McCain has some problem with his own party members like Rand Paul:
“The country needs more senators who care about liberty, but if Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. He needs to know what he’s talking about.”
Ouch!
there all the same john mccain plays both sides to the middle,in order to keep his positon, theres a new immgration plan comming up in aprl,and yes mccain and the rest of his croneys in the republican party ,are planning to give anmesty to these 13 or so million illegal law breakers,just think they the dems and republicans cant come together on anything aka the sequister thats putting millions of people out of work with budget cuts ,but they can come together to giving your country away to 13 million illegals which in reality is more like 20 million more the average american is stupidist unimformed people on the planet,you need to be ran over,for you peoples stupidty

Yes, McCain should know what criteria was used for the release, but he should support release of many more of them if no crime was committed. The US government should make that information available along with the criteria used to arrest these people in the first place and in many cases rip them away from their loved US citizen spouses and children. I know and heard the stories about people that were kidnapped by ICE and trafficked around like criminals and there crimes were fishing WITH a license, waiting for the public bus, riding the greyhound, riding Amtrak, tail light blown, turned too fast around the corner, didn't stop long enough at the stop sign, and frankly being brown. All these kidnapped people are given an "A" number based on how they were kidnapped. Given that information, it would be easy to release people so they can return to their families and plan and fight their immigration case. I'm willing to bet they released all the people that were kidnapped by ICE because they spoke Spanish on the street.
And it all started because they entered our country "ILLEGALLY"!

Or did you forget that?

The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under border fences.

No need for climbing walls, swimming rivers, etc when we already share North America. Most (80-90%) of these people were already in this continent before the Statue of Liberty was put there in 1886. The Statue of Liberty was a fantastic gift from France to welcome immigrants from Europe to this great North American continent. Mexicans and Central Americans didn't bypass the Statue of Liberty because....they were already here!

can someone be a bigger phoney then McAmnesty?? I think not Heck he wants to make all the Wets Citizens. Far as people who thing McAmnesty was a war hero do a search many VietNam Vets and many of the POWs look at him more as a traitor. You ever wonder why his military records are sealed??

My point is the past is full of crazy events of stealing each other's lands, but now we all have very similar values (and neither are terrorists) and we should work together to create a prosperous North American future while we still have strong friendships and the mutual need for the other.

I'm not degrading anything. We have an opportunity to benefit all the countries in North America and we need to work towards a common goal in the future because we are all very interconnected these days. Breaking up families of spouses of 2 differing countries doesn't make any sense. We have the potential for a strong prosperous North America, but the whole deportation thing is like a witch hunt for neighbors and friends.

You can look at it any way you want to, sport. It exists, the two governments recognize it and there are laws in place on both sides to define the consequences of crossing it illegally. NOBODY is forcing individuals to leave their families- if they cannot support 'em- then tell 'em to keep their peckers in their pants. Whine all you want to, the law is clear about this, obviously you're a little fuzzy.

Your heart may be in the right place...BUT!!! The government of Mexico is not interested in an OPEN border. Only a two way door open from the south..Niether are any other Central or South American countries. They want their people to be able to go and return.. Not the Nortes to be able to come down there and interfere with their political process, then it becomes an internal debate closed to North Americans. If we are gonna have an OPEN border, it has to be a two way street.. How about we have a shared Constituion modelled on the American Constitution with the same Bill Of Rights we enjoy here?

If people from the South are allowed to come here unimpeded it will, and does do harm to our economy. Close the border or open it both ways. Give American business free rein in Mexico, and vice versa.

Simple as that ..Fairs fair.

Yes, more dialogue between the countries is exactly what is needed! Each country in North America should align their ideas and goals, including the bill of rights in each. Private gun ownership in Mexico might put those drug lords in their place and bring down crime. Sounds like we have a good start! But, its actually the US that isn't interested in the open border. Mexico has proposed a more integrated North America several times. Ex Mexican President Fox even wanted a single currency. Bush and Fox were working on commonalities, which have been forgotten these days.
