Senator John McCain spent months this year arguing that the United States must combine border security efforts with a temporary worker program and an eventual path to citizenship for many illegal aliens. Now, the Republican presidential candidate has seen the light. He now emphasizes securing the border first. "I say it is a lesson learned about what the American people's priorities are. And their priority is to secure the borders."
Perhaps his message by extension is that all citizens should recognize this fact and push for border security before any other immigration reforms are entertained.
