John McCain flip-flops like crazy over the issue of border security and illegal aliens.
During a townhall meeting, he confronted “La Raza” radical Enrique Morones. Morones is a member of “Borders Angels”, another group of scofflaws who aid and abet illegals.
McCain: Let me just tell you sir, I talked about the people who have come across here illegally and those who have died in the desert. I know that — I come from a border state. I’ve been in Mexico many times. But there’s also drugs coming across our border, sir, that are killing Americans too. And they’re working right there [applause] — yes, sir, and they’re working right there and sending people who just want to come across the border illegally to cover their own activities. [voice rising] The United States of America has to have secure borders, sir, and I will do that. And that’s necessary even if you may disagree. Our nation’s national-security requirements are — that we have secure borders. But we can address this issue in a humane and compassionate fashion, I am committed to that and you have my commitment to it, and we will make it the highest priority, and if you don’t think that we have to secure our borders, then I respect your view but we just disagree.
This is what happened behind the scenes after the exchange:
On a Mexican radio program on 1420 AM in Tijuana hosted by Odilon Garcia, Morones called in and gave more information on what Morones and McCain talked about after their public conversation took place.
Morones told Garcia that while McCain was talking on the microphone about the fact that drug smugglers are using migrants to cross over illegal drugs, Morones told him that the United States should stop the demand for illegal drugs.
After McCain ended his Q and A session, Morones and McCain spoke face to face and McCain told him about the need for Border Security. Morones asked the Senator to meet with him privately without cameras so Enrique could make the point that Immigration raids are “separating families” and border walls are “killing immigrants”. He told the Senator to ask Enrique’s good friend Juan Hernandez, whom Enrique had dinner the night before, to set up the private meeting. McCain told him that he would. Enrique said that he would ask McCain to sign an executive order to stop Immigration raids.
Enrique then adds, that he called Juan Hernandez about the mistake the McCain campaign is doing by portraying the picture of John McCain with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the background at the NCLR convention. Morones then told the story that on Saturday some students called him at the convention that they were upset with the McCain booth having a picture of Senator McCain with the Virgin of Guadalupe because the senator was using the image of the virgin for political purposes. One of the students took the picture and ran away. Some security officers ran off and caught the student but that the picture was not hung back. The next day the picture was not seen and Morones called that a victory.
McCain was also a co-sponsor of the DREAM Act, a proposed bill that would have granted amnesty to illegals.
But,this is what he told conservative bloggers:
As for the Dream Act, McCain told us that he would have voted against cloture (i.e., in favor of preventing a vote) because he “got the message” this summer that Americans want the border secured before we “go on to the rest.” McCain would deem parts of the border secure when the governor of the relevant state so certifies.
On the other hand, at a recent address to La Raza, Juan McAmnesty told an audience member that he’ll support the DREAM Act.

He also has open-borders radicals like Juan Hernandez, on his staff:
Dear Juan McAmnesty:
How about ENFORCING the law and preventing anymore MS 13’s, rapists, murderers, thieves, and terrorists, from traipsing across our sieve-like borders.
In other words, grow a pair, help secure the border, and stop pandering to illegals.
But, one can only DREAM.
