  • McCain visiting pro-immigration rally in NYC on Feb 27th

    A Republican senator is coming to New York to rally support for an immigration reform plan that is winning many fans in immigrant circles. He'll likely arrive before New York's Democratic senators even take a public stance on the divisive issue.

    Senator McCain, a Republican of Arizona who will likely run for president in 2008, will headline a town hall meeting and rally for immigration reform expected to attract 1,000 people to Lower Manhattan on February 27. The evening will be an opportunity for him to push the bipartisan bill he is sponsoring with Senator Kennedy, a Democrat of Massachusetts.

      Isn't it just a b u m m e r that immigrants can't vote...and that illegal aliens aren't even supposed to be in the country.

      Senator McCain would be better served to listen to his constituents (American Citizens...remember them?) in Arizona, who are...well, let's just say that he might not even be be reelected to the Senate if he was running in 2006.

        He will be the next president. Write it down, and keep your eyes opened.

          Dream on!! It is unlikely that Senator McCain would even be reelected to the United States Senate.

          Senator McCain's views on immigration are not supported by the vast majority of his constituents in Arizona, who are on the front lines of the illegal immigration debate.

              Duh!! The election is two years and nine months away!!

              A week is a long time in politics :-)

              Secretary Rice has stated that she isn't running for President, and the conventional wisdom is that she seriously means it. This is, of course, unfortunate, as I'm confident that she would be a good President.

              Aren't the numbers that you quote for Hillary her unfavorable ratings?

              In fact, I'm confident that the election of 2008 will be the frst American election in which I'll be eligible to vote.

                  Quite simply: if I'm eligible to vote in 2008, there is only one circumstance in which I'd vote for Senator McCain - and that's if my other choice is Senator Clinton (I could never vote for Hillary).

                  Senator McCain won't earn my vote because he advocates amnesty for illegal aliens.

                    It's a lost - lost situation for anyone tha beleives that undocumented immigrant should all get deported, once it comes to deciding which presidencial candidate would support such extreme ideology against immigrants....

                    As we all know, MCcain and hillary are the 2 major favorite to win the '08 election.MCcain supports a guest worker permits with a path to citizenship and Hillary's democratic party support a clean amnesty of those undocumented immigrant which is even juicier for undocumented migrants.

                    So, at the end of the day,Sundevilusa and the other anti-immigrants users, are handling a double-edged sword..Pick your poison, who do you want?? Mccain or hillary? lol

                    Unless you beleive tancredo or j.d hayworth stand a chance of winning the presidential election which is like saying " osama bin laden could win the US Presidential"

                    Both of those congressmen do not stand a chance of winning the presidency because the American public does not like angry candidates, specially the ones that talks about bombing muslim holy sites.

                    When JD hayworth talks about immigrants, you'd think that a mexican murdered his wife. He has nothing decent to say about immigrants and the american public shouldnt take any of those baffoons seriously, specialy the anti-immigrants fanatics.

                      SunDevilUSA,

                      Haven't you seen the various polls that suggest that immigration is not ranked higly on most americans' agenda? Seem to me you are fighting a losing battle. Mccain will be the next President! And big business will get their guess worker program.

                        Flexx- You are 100% right. The American public does not rank immigration high on their agenda's list..this is why tancredo and Hayworth has failed to get the majority of the American public on their side.
                        Only the Minute-men and a few radical nazi members supports them..Have you noticed that whenever tancredo holds a rally, about a dozen nazi personels always shows up?? in this makes tancredo, j.d and other immigrants-bashers look terrible in the American public's eyes.

                        The American people wants to know why the nazi groups supports your agenda concerning immigrants?

                        Should we vote for a candidate that is being funded by radical groups such as the nazi federation and the minute-men? No way in hell would we ever have a president that owns such an extreme view on any specific groups...tancredo has already stated that he would turn the army and cops loose to go full force afer undocumented migrants at churches,work, in their house etc etc.

                        Even priest and community service members that are US citizen would be targeted & arrested just because they are kind hearted enought to help people in needs.

                        The American public would not stand for a police state and would not stand for citizen being thrown in jail because they wants to help others in needs.

                        THIS IS WHY TANCREDO WOULD NOT EVEN GET 2% OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC'S VOTES

                          It wouldn't be fair or even proper to brand as Nazis those who oppose immigration.The Constitution protects individual rights and personal beliefs.
                          The House bill has very strong issues when it comes to its constitutionality. The U.S. Supreme Court has specifically held that the retroactive application of a newly enacted criminal statute is unconstitutional, and this is exactly what this bill does.
                          The Senate cannot overlook this issue, legislation must be "structurally sound", constitutional and enforceable.
                          Unlawful presence would be an offense of criminal nature penalized under 18 U.S.C. This is where things get interesting. Most people believe, or want to believe, that it would be simple to arrest, charge and process any alien with no proper documentation based on this amendment. However, the rules of criminal procedure as described under U.S.C. itself would prevent this from happening in a quick and easy way. A criminal offense is "committed" when all the elements of the offense are present, completed and executed. According to this principle, the "unlawful presence" offense would be completed the very first second the alien fails to depart the U.S. or enters illegally. This is when United States v. Marion would come into play. Accordingly, most cases could be dismissed nolle prosequi.
                          There's also many other arguments, one indeed very powerful, related to 18 U.S.C and criminal procedure. These arguments however need no exploring at this juncture.
                          This is not a matter of what's right or wrong, it's a matter of law; a matter of preserving the authority of the Judiciary and the integrity of the United States Constitution.
