McCain: Addressing ISIS Border Threat Must Come Before Immigration Reform

McCain: Addressing ISIS Border Threat Must Come Before Immigration Reform

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World With Neil Cavuto,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said because of the heightened threat of ISIS crossing undetected through an unsecured U.S.-Mexico border, securing that border has now become a priority over immigration reform.

McCain said, “One of the witnesses, who was directly in charge of border security, said that there is a real concern about one of these or more of these terrorists who would come across our southern border. And the fact is our southern border is not secure. They [ISIS] have already announced on Twitter and on Facebook that they want to do everything they can to attack the United States of America, so if the southern border is not secure, obviously that would be one of the avenues to achieve that. And which leads me to believe that we have to have 90 percent effective control of the border and 100% situational awareness before we move forward with comprehensive immigration reform. This new ISIS threat has really heightened, in my view, the necessity for a secure border which we don’t have.”
