Can we trust McCain on immigration?

Can we trust GOP presidential nominee John McCain on immigration?  The pundits and the media are telling us that he shares Democratic nomiee Barack Obama’s views on immigration.  But is that really true – and will the Republican Party allow McCain to do ANYTHING to help immigrants?

Here is what Obama has to say about McCain and immigration, according to the L.A. Times:

“When he was running for his party’s nomination, he walked away from that commitment,” Obama said. “He said that he wouldn’t even support his own legislation if it came up for a vote.”

Obama, also calling for securing the borders, called for bringing “12 million people who are here illegally out of the shadows” and putting them on a pathway to citizenship after paying a fine, learning English and going to the “back of the line.

I am confident that Obama will do something to help those who are here and who want to become legal residents of this country.  I have NO confidence that McCain will do anything to help them.  Even if he wanted to his party won’t let him.  This is one of the reasons I expect Obama to become our next President.  I don’t see McCain getting more than ten to fifteen percent of the Latino vote.  We learned our lesson with Bush – I doubt Latino voters will err again with McCain.
