RUSH: Westin in Stafford, Arizona, it's great to have you on the EIB Network, hello.
CALLER: Thank you very much, Rush. I am calling because John McCain and Jeff Flake both, from what I understand, voted for the immigration bill, which makes no sense to me. Being that they're from Arizona, you'd think they understand the dangerous possibilities of bringing in all these illegal immigrants, wouldn't they?
RUSH: Well, McCain's answered this question. You don't accept what he says?
CALLER: I'm sorry, I didn't catch that.
RUSH: McCain has answered your question, why he supports it. You don't accept what he says?
CALLER: No, I don't. I can understand giving out work visas, but I know the rancher who was killed here in southern New Mexico a couple years ago by an illegal immigrant.
RUSH: Isolated incident.
CALLER: My grandparents who live in southern Arizona here have had, multiple times, illegals knock on their door in the middle of the night thinking that was a pickup spot. So my grandpa has to come to the door with a shotgun to scare 'em off, multiple times.
RUSH: Isolated incidents.
CALLER: How is it isolated if it happens time after time?
RUSH: These are future Republican voters you're talking about. That's what Senator McCain would tell you.
CALLER: But it just makes no sense to me how liberal McCain is going. He seems like he's playing out of Obama's pocket.
RUSH: I know. I know. I know your frustration, being serious for a moment. Within the arena of common sense, it makes no sense at all. So there have to be reasons that you and I don't understand. And there are, I'm sure, a multitude of them. But I think that they're being honest when they say they want those people as voters. Look, I know that there are a lot of Republicans who are scared to death these people are all gonna vote Democrat, and they believe this notion that if they oppose amnesty, that they're never gonna get them.
The polling data does not support the notion that supporting amnesty is how you get their vote. In fact, Breitbart has a story today: "A new poll shows that a majority of registered Hispanic voters believe any immigration legislation that becomes law should deal with border security and interior immigration law enforcement before legalization." Well, obviously what these already Hispanic citizens think doesn't matter either. What this is about is these 11 million, apparently. But I know, it doesn't make sense. I'm not gonna be able to explain it to you, either, if they can't.
