Immigration: What Would Reagan Do?

By PETER ROBINSON

In a television advertisement airing in Arizona, John McCain, running for a fifth term in the Senate, strolls through the desert near Nogales with Paul Babeu, sheriff of Pinal County. Beside the two men rises a section of the border fence that the Department of Homeland Security has been erecting to keep undocumented Mexicans in Mexico. “We’re outmanned,” Mr. Babeu tells the senator, who nods knowingly. “Of all the illegals in America, more than half come through Arizona.”

Messrs. McCain and Babeu chat for a moment about Sen. McCain’s “Ten-Point Border Security Plan.” Then Sen. McCain, reciting one of the 10 points, delivers the line with which the 30-second spot climaxes: “Complete the danged fence.”

John McCain, fencing off America. Would Ronald Reagan have approved? Read full articel at here at Hoover.org
