I've searched the internet and haven't been able to find any clear concise information on McCains stance on birth right citizenship. Does any one have any idea on what his stance on it is. The reason is, because if he is chosen as the nominee (gasp) he at least says he will secure the border. So my last straw is the anchor baby problem. If he supports the status quo, I will not vote in the general election, if he opposes anchor babies I might go ahead (although not without a bad taste in my mouth) and vote for him over Hillary.

McAmnesty? I highly doubt that he opposes birthright citizenship, but I could be wrong. I don't believe that he will secure the border either.

Let me put it this way: despite my very strong negative feelings towards Hillary, she is looking better and better than Juan McCain every day-------and, I am a registered Republican.

Don't let him be the nominee! He is a RHINO! He's in love with the illegals so I'm sure he has no problem with anchor babies. Hell, he'd probably give citizenship to anyone or anything that wants it.

P.S. Same goes for Hillary and Obama.

McCain is a very pro-illegal candidate, IMO. He also has a nasty temper and if anyone disagrees with him, he goes off into a profanity-laced tirade. See below.

In a heated dispute over immigration-law overhaul, McCain screamed, "F- - - you!" at Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who had been raising concerns about the legislation.

"This is chickens- - - stuff," McCain snapped at Cornyn, according to several people in the room off the Senate floor Thursday. "You've always been against this bill, and you're just trying to derail it."


More instances of this guy's temper:

His stance on illegal immigration flies in the face with most of the Republican party.

None of the candidates give a rats behind about protecting the border.

Why should McCain care about illegal immigration. McCain wealth and status insulate him from the negative impact of illegal immigration. McCain is no different than Ted Kennedy.

I agree with you on McCain's position regarding illegal immigration. Even with my dislike of his position, voting for one of the democrats would be moving even further from my position on that. They will not even mention securing the border.

He says he got the message when his bill failed that the people want the border secured. Sure he did. I don't believe for a second he will even secure the border, let alone do anything else. That is the single reason I can not support him.
