McCain: U.S. Should Offer Naturalization

PHOENIX - The "human tragedy" of illegal immigrants dying and being abused as they attempt to enter the United States will continue until the federal government acknowledges the important economic role undocumented workers play, Sen. John McCain told Hispanic leaders Saturday.
"It is in our national interest to bring the 8 to 12 million undocumented immigrants out of the shadows and allow them an opportunity to become citizens of this great nation," McCain said at the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza, a civil rights group and political think tank dedicated to promoting Hispanic issues.
The Arizona Republican said federal policy and border enforcement have failed to alleviate the deaths of migrants crossing the sweltering Southwest deserts and the violence of smugglers who often hold immigrants for ransom once they reach America.
An example of the government's wrongheaded approach, McCain said, is its recent introduction of unmanned aerial vehicles in Arizona that use thermal and night-vision equipment to help Border Patrol agents spot illegal immigrants.

This from the man who thinks that money turns good people bad. So I guess it isn't that far fetched to see that he doesn't understand the problem. Senator McCain, if they want to stop "dying" or being "abused" perhaps they should STOP BREAKING THE FREAKING LAW!
We are not the ones forcing them into the back of trucks where they suffocate because they are trying to break our laws now are we?
Senator McCain also seems to think that it is a bad idea for us to have put up unmanned drones and increased boarder security to stop these illegals by saying "That ignores the fundamental problem." "Where there's a demand, there's a supply ... There's a demand for people to fill jobs that Americans won't do."
Better idea here Senator. How about where there are CRIMINALS there will be CRIME!?!?!?! No, no that is too simple because after all in Senator McCain's world, external forces make good people do bad things (i.e. campaign finances and soft money which lead to the McCain/Feingold travesty).
Senator McCain, securing our borders and illegal aliens dying because they want to break our laws doesn't "ignores the fundamental problem". In fact it emphasizes it. It emphasizes that there are BAD people in this world. It emphasizes that they will break the law and that unless you get tough on them they will continue to do so.
While you are generally fairly level headed Senator, you keep having these brain farts. End the pandering. Just do your job. Paving the way for 8 to 12 million CRIMINALS to obtain citizenship doesn't solve the problem. It will however make it worse as people flood into this nation illegally once they see we are willing to let them suck upon the nipple of the federal government.
