Candidate Review - Illegal Immigration - John McCain

John McCain has been tarred on this issue pretty regularly, but let's see how he does.

Well he doesn't want to make America the world's largest gated community (I'm certain I ripped that line off from someone but can't remember who at the moment). In fact some of these phrases sound like red flags. Or they would sound like red flags to our buddies on the right. John McCain wants a plan that will
Recognize the importance of a flexible labor market to keep employers in business and our economy on top. It should provide skilled Americans and immigrants with opportunity. Our education system should ensure skills for our younger workers, and our retraining and assistance programs for displaced workers must be modernized so they can pursue those opportunities

. . . Recognize that America will always be that "shining city upon a hill," a beacon of hope and opportunity for those seeking a better life built on hard work and optimism.
Huh? What about the fear of being colonized? Does McCain want us to be colonized?

McCain doesn't have much of a chance at this point, and his views on Iraq are intolerable, but at least he has a few good bones in his body, I guess.
