Senator John McCain (R-AZ) asserted that the problem with foreign children dumped on the southern border was a significant one – but admitted that he was troubled about a solution for dealing with the problem.
McCain said that he didn’t think that the illegal children should be allowed to stay, asserting that it would have been better if they hadn’t crossed the border in the first place. He also criticized the false message of amnesty to illegal immigrants which was drawing them to cross before immigration reform passed.
McCain admitted that the latest crisis at the border would significantly harm any effort to pass some sort of immigration bill.
McCain admitted that he wasn’t sure what Obama was planning to do about the problem either.
