The McCain staff questioned in a conference call about the involvement of Juan Hernandez as an adviser, dodged the question by stating that Juan Hernandez supports McCain's position on illegal immigration. While this should come as no shock, at least the campaign staff is clear that they'll continue using advisers who are loyal to the Mexican government when it comes to illegal immigration.

For most this is nothing new, since McCain was co-author of the past few amnesty attempts in the Senate with Ted Kennedy. It is just important to remember the people that John McCain is using for his advisers - especially his Hispanic Outreach Director. Because the message sent to the "Hispanic community" is that it is OK to be illegal in this country and it is expected as a "Hispanic" that you put Mexico first.
Ed Morrisey: Will McCain address the issue of Juan Hernandez on his campaign? Schmidt says that anyone on the campaign supports McCain’s view, not the other way around. When I challenged him on his point regarding McPeak, which assumes the opposite, he said that Obama’s positions will be what the American public evaluate. Schmidt says that the GOP have rallied behind McCain and that his positions on immigration “could not be clearer”.
I’d like to see McCain add some conservatives to his advisers on immigration for balance and to give everyone a little more confidence in his approach to border security, and I think having Hernandez on the campaign detracts from McCain’s attack on McPeak.
However, Schmidt is correct in saying that everyone understands McCain’s policy positions on immigration, and that his track record is open and obvious ... Also, one should note that Hernandez is an unpaid volunteer ...
McCain's immigration stance is open and obvious indeed! We all know where he stands. As for Hernandez being an unpaid volunteer, would that make it alright for someone to appoint Louis Farrakhan or David Duke as an adviser as long as they were unpaid? Hernandez is the Hispanic equivalent.
