How McCain Can Win
A "Real" Fence By a Date Certain
|James Pinkerton -- The Fox Forum -- September 22
McCain Will Win If He Takes on Illegal Immigration
By making border security a national security issue, "McCain would be highlighting Obama's extreme left wing view that illegal aliens are entitled to driver's licenses." And that's unacceptable to most Americans, who recall that 16 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were in possession of fraudulent driver's licenses, allowed them to get on passenger aircraft to kill 3,000 Americans.
"This is an underlying issue that has not been highlighted by either candidate," Rotterman continues. "What the average American family wants is border security by a date certain."
Indeed, there's already legislation, the "Fence By Date Certain Act," spearheaded by Rep. Peter King (R-NY), ranking Republican on the Homeland Security Committee; it calls for a fence to be built by June 30, 2009. This Fence by Date Certain Act has gained 56 sponsors, even with zero help from the Bush Administration, the Democratic Congressional leadership, or the Republican Congressional leadership.
"The American people, by a wide majority, inherently trust Senator McCain with the security of this nation," Rotterman concludes. "By combining border security and national security, he plays to his strength as the next Commander in Chief of the United States."
