McCain gets an earful on immigration in Arizona
    During a heated town hall gathering in the Phoenix suburb of Sun Lakes, McCain said the border near Yuma is largely secure, but he said smugglers are using the border near Tucson to pump drugs into Phoenix. He said immigration reform should be contingent on better border security that must rely largely on technology able to detect border crossings.*
    McCain said a tamper-proof Social Security card would help combat identity fraud, and noted any path to citizenship must require immigrants to learn English, cover back taxes and pay fines for breaking immigration laws.
    "There are 11 million people living here illegally," he said. "We are not going to get enough buses to deport them."
    Some audience members shouted out their disapproval.
    One man yelled that only guns would discourage illegal immigration. Another man complained that illegal immigrants should never be able to become citizens or vote. A third man said illegal immigrants were illiterate invaders who wanted free government benefits.

    McCain says: "immigration reform must rely largely on technology to detect border crossings." Is he aware that DHS just scuttled its program for new sensors on the border?
