McCain Calls For Amnesty For Irish Illegal Aliens

Bookmark and Share

At a Scranton, Pennsylvania stop on Monday at an "Irish-American Town Hall", John McCain told an audience of mostly "Irish-Americans" that there are over 50,000 Irish illegal aliens in America and that they should be given an amnesty and put on a "pathway to citizenship".

Now the opposition to immigration enforcement would have you think that this issue is all about race, but it isn't. I am part Irish and I oppose an amnesty for Irish illegal aliens as well as Italian illegal aliens, Mexican illegal aliens, Chinese illegal aliens, and illegal aliens... It doesn't matter the race or ethnicity, they are illegal aliens, unscreened and putting a burden on our society.

Amnesty McCain returns in full swing.

Washington Post

McCain said there were "50,000 Irish men and women in this country illegally who want to become citizens'' and that "we have to give them a path to citizenship."

... a point McCain has been making of late in ads playing on Spanish-language radio stations in key states, but by and large eschewed before non-Hispanic audiences.


"This nation is all the stronger -- this nation is stronger, this nation is stronger -- for the infusion of fresh blood and vitality that has come to this nation wave after wave: Irish, Italian, Poles, everybody who's come to this nation has enriched our nation, including our Hispanic citizenry. OK? That's what America's all about."

Really? Everybody? Even the pedophiles and murderers and gang members that sneak across the border repeatedly?

Tell that to the victim's families McCain.

In another piece in the Boston Globe on the event, it was noted that McCain had "immigration activists" and pro illegal alien groups at the event, but shunned Republican congressional candidate Lou Barletta who was right down the road in Hazleton, Pennsylvania.

... no trace of Barletta's candidacy was evident during McCain's stop at Scranton's Masonic Temple. Instead the audience at theatre heard from a New York bar owner who introduced himself proudly as an "immigration activist" and paid tribute to McCain as a champion of more liberal laws that he said would aid future immigration from Ireland.


"Most of your parents and grandparents came here as poor immigrants and were welcomed here," said Ciaran Staunton of the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. "Immigration is not a dirty word. Immigration is our fathers' word."

Never heard of the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform? Well Lonewacko tells us that it is an Ireland funded group... funny how McCain keeps tying himself to foreign governments and what they want, but refuses to invite local Republican candidates who are fighting for America.

Which country is McCain running to be the president of again?

Why is it that this McCain can go around the country and propose Amnesty for Illegal Aliens and be so high in the Polls.? I just cant bring myself to vote for this guy. I never missed an Election for over 50 Years, But I think I will sit this one out.

Don't sit it out, Richard! Vote for whomever you want, whomever you believe would do the best job for America.

Chuck Baldwin has quite a following, and so does Ron Paul (although I'm still trying to figure out why, since he won't switch to independent ...) or you can vote for yourself!

Don't sit this one out.

Richard, vote, and Vote McCain. For all his Faults, he is not a Baby Killing Left Wing Scum bag. And your sorry ass will be crying tears of Blood, if that Scumbag Obama gets in.Unless, you a Liberal scumbag, taking it up the Poop Chute, and Married to another Faggot, go for it.

To Jack, I am split on gay marriage. After all, marriage is a contract and all citizens have the right to enter into a contract, yet I can't shake the feeling the homosexuals have a larger agenda if Prop 8 is defeated...

And what is the deal with Juan McCain? He doesn't understand the purpose of immigration is to screen applicants and insure assimilation into our country.

Ken, good point, but as the Irish say, "You can cover a Turd with sugar, but no matter how you slice it, it is still "SHIT". Let "Butt Pirates" make a contract, but it is not, and never will be Marriage.

McCain doesn't know enought to keep his mouth shut on this subject. It makes me question his sanity.

I think you should all be ashamed of your comments,Irish people are among the hardest working people in this country,Its not a case of Irish people taking American jobs its a case of some Americans being too lazy to get jobs,When Americans come to Ireland to work there is not issue with getting a green card,Remember who helped build this country, at least give Irish people a chance to get some kind of work permit,The way the system is now it is nearly impossible and they face a 10year ban from the U.S.A if they return home,These people have famalies just like you,be more considerate in future.
