Schumer: McCain Said to Me, 'Let’s Get Immigration Reform Done’

Written by  Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) – Praising Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), now battling brain cancer, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday said McCain is thinking beyond the health care bill.

“You know, I love the man,” Schumer (D-N.Y.

) told a news conference on Tuesday, after the Senate vote on a motion to proceed to a health care bill that is open to amendments.

“He's a great man," Schumer said of McCain. "We've been close friends. He even said to me when I called him this weekend, ‘Let's get immigration reform done,’ so he's thinking of the future. As you know, he and I worked on that [2013 comprehensive immigration reform] bill. And it was great to see him back, strong as he was.”

Schumer said he “could have written the same speech” that McCain delivered on the Senate floor Tuesday, when McCain called for a return to regular order, including committee hearings, to produce a bipartisan health care bill.

“But the idea of regular order, and the idea that this bill is not a very good bill, both came out brilliantly in McCain's speech, which was much better than any speech any Democrat could have given,” Schumer said.

Schumer said he hopes McCain’s speech “signals to every one of us that maybe we should get back to regular order, and I couldn't think of a better place to start than this bill.

Immigration Reform means another amnesty which President Trump will never go for! Our Citizens must remember the amnesty of 1986 that was suppose to fix the problem, Washington gave an amnesty to three million illegal immigrants, now we have ten to twenty million illegal immigrants here which we do not know who they are, where they are at, nor what they are doing?
We do know where some of them are at, they are in our jails and prisoners for committing other crimes here, if you do not believe me, look up the SCAAP funding, these are the tax dollars that Washington sends out each year to States and Cities for the partial cost of the incarceration of illegal immigrants!

Not only is John McCain a traitorous asshole, He has never helped to stop the flow of illegals through his home state. Why the hell do the people of Arizona keep electing this shithead?
And lets not forget the Keating five.

Certainly, comrade Schumer praised the speach of comrade McCain. As the demo. peg in congress on which the owners of the MSM hang their subterfuge, he could only praise the deceit of McCain. "Wet-Start McCain", with over fifty years of experience betraying Americans, reflects the super-rich elite. Amazing, how the "elite family" has covered the narcissistic psychopathy of McCain. Especially, since his destruction on the USS Forestall, July 1967, which killed 134 American sailors and wounded a similar number. His travel to Syria in February 2017, at the expense of American taxpayers, to collaborate with ISIS leaders, is a continuation of his betrayal of fellow Americans while in captivity in Viet Nam. Had this man received his deserved punishment, he would be an outcast, instead of a member of the US Congress.
As to brain cancer, hundreds of genuine American heroes have died of cancer since Viet Nam. Too many died alone, with no sympathy. Yet, "Wet-Start McCain" is showered with sympathy; fraudulently.

it is not age that results in evi; hiter, mussolini, Bush ii were not 'old bastards' when they slaughered millions. Term limits means you violate my right to vote as i wish you, nor the majority have this right.


The last new troops in Congress were younger, richer, and more right wing than ever.

We need not term limits but democracy.

if you knew anything about our country's founding, you would know that we are a republic, and not a Democracy!...

Agree... Lets start with
. Eliminating sanctuary cities,
. Doubling ICE support,
. Firing all the liberal attorneys like when Bill Clinton Had 93 U.S. Attorneys FIRED IN ONE DAY!
. Build the Wall ...Government money is not required to build the wall. A bond issue would be repaid from money saved.
President Trump's team is brilliant and building the Border Wall will be the smartest and greatest investment ever made by the USA government.!!! Forget repayment by Mexico and ignore a tax. Besides the carnage from drug pouring in, look at these costs.
1] The 2011 Martin & Ruark "The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on US Taxpayers" "estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 Billion; nearly $29 Billion at the federal level and $84 Billion at the state and local level”.
Today’s and future costs are significantly greater.
2] The $113 Billion did not include the cost of humans and illicit drugs trafficking, lost citizen’s wages, the society’s drug users and crime victims nor positive benefit factors as less crime from repeat deported criminals, safer streets and communities.
3] The recent MIT and the anti-Trump Washington Post’s fact checker estimated the wall cost could be as high as $25 to $41 Billion for the entire border length.
4] Reducing the annual costs by 10%, the worse-case Wall Cost would be repaid within 2 to 4 years !!!
5] When did any government (or any financial adviser) make an investment with a 25% to 50% return within the first year followed by that annuity for life?
6] It would be just a bonus if Mexico made any repayment
7] Even I would invest in a limited 5% bond to be repaid in within 10 years from the above savings. That bond issue would generate too much money if made available.

Whenever we hear those in DC talk about "immigration reform" we know that they actually mean amnesty for all the invaders who they have allowed into America with no intention of stopping that flow of illegals into our country, especially the dems. They pulled this off again when Reagan was president and have been trying for a repeat every since. Time to merely deport those in the country illegally whether they sneaked across the border or over stayed their visa. America already has the laws against these invaders and it's time to finally start enforcement. Keep up the good work President Trump.

Get rid of the invaders.
(Updated: July 26, 2017)

Juan McShame is one of the "Gang of Eight" open borders traitors that tried to pass amnesty in 2006 - 2007, then supported the Dream act with Shumer and Ted Kennedy. None of this garbage is going to fly. Ramp up the deportation machine and lets get on with building the wall and enforcing the laws already on the books.

Of course this prick loves the traitor piece of shit! He's a fellow Democrat!!! McCain is a Trojan Horse for the Democrats and liberals.. Nothing wrong with our immigration system, except for the rotten bastards that don't want to enforce the laws. They want to flood our country with future votes legal or not. Old Johnny "songbird" McCain is a total prick traitor that needs to be gone one way or another.
