Pressing the Point
McCain Must Flesh-Out Immigration Platform

Tom Delay appears on This Week with George Stephanopoulos (MP3 Audio)
This Week with George Stephanopoulos -- February 10
Stephanopoulos: What are the big questions that John McCain has to answer now for conservatives?
Delay: Well, immigration is number one. They want to know is he still for amnesty or his he not? What's he going to do about that?
Stephanopoulos: He's said he is for fixing the border first. He's for new sequencing.
Delay: Yeah, but he does not address what comes after. My suggestion to him, he's not asking for my advice, but my suggestion is, come out like he has for strong border security* and then a highly restrictive guest worker program.
