Sen. John McCain warns of poison pill amendments designed to kill legal comprehensive immigration billThursday, June 13th, 2013
Yesterday, Senator John McCain warned of a poison pill amendment that is designed to kill the legal immigration reform being discussed. The poison pill will more than likely come from Republicans.
The Republican Party had it’s ass handed to them during the November 2012 Presidential elections, and it appears they are flirting with dangerous anti-immigrant moves for the upcoming 2014 and 2016 election seasons.
While “southern” dixiecrat-like Republicans put the GOP on a path to extinction, it appears Republican McCain has done the math with regard to the fastest growing demographic in our Nation via Mexican-Americans and is trying to support a legal fix to immigration in a bipartisanship fashion.
Shortly after November 2012 elections, McCain tweeted the below:
Most everyone will agree that the immigration system is broken, and immigration must be fixed at the federal level since the immigration law is protected under the Supremacy Clause of our United States Constitution.
