McCain Jeered At Town Hall After Opposing Mass Deportation

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) got an earful from his constituents in his home state while defending his bipartisan immigration plan at a town hall.

According to the Associated Press, an "angry crowd" reacted negatively as McCain described his proposal to grant a path to citizenship for many of the country's estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants. From their writeup:

“There are 11 million people living here illegally,” he said. “We are not going to get enough buses to deport them.”

Some audience members shouted out their disapproval.

One man yelled that only guns would discourage illegal immigration. Another man complained that illegal immigrants should never be able to become citizens or vote. A third man said illegal immigrants were illiterate invaders who wanted free government benefits.

McCain urged compassion. “We are a Judeo-Christian nation,” he said. McCain’s other town hall meeting took place in Green Valley, south of Tucson.

3. LOL. He tries reminding them they're Christian.

As Gandhi once said, "I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ."

5. You (McCain) stir up this pot of hate when you need it,

then when you have to deal with this pot of crazy you want to "urge compassion." You can't have it both ways Grampy.

16. McCain kissed up to these nuts when it was politically convenient for him.

In fact, he even selected one of them to be his running mate. I have no sympathy for this jackass.
