MCCAIN'S EARS BENT ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Seems voters in Arizona aren't as amenable to Senator John McCain's (RINO-AZ) tired song and dance routine, as they once were.

This article by J.J. Hensley in "The Arizona Republic" suggests that Arizona's citizens are fed up with porous borders and illegal aliens and a homestate Senator who has aligned himself with Ted Kennedy, of all people, on immigration reform.

The presidential election is still more than three years away, but the campaign season started early for East Valley residents who attended Sen. John McCain's town-hall style meeting in Mesa on Thursday night.

McCain shared his views on broad topics such as the need to win the war in Iraq and the government's lack of fiscal responsibility, but it was his controversial opinion on immigration reform that drew the strongest reaction from several hundred people at Mesa Community College.

McCain has introduced a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States if they pay a fine and participate in a guest-worker program.
