Following an appearance by Barack Obama the day before, Sen. John McCain faced some tough questions about his stance on immigration Monday at a meeting with members of the National Council of La Raza in San Diego, where he denied Obama’s claim that he had changed his tune on the immigration issue to please his Republican base.
San Diego Union-Tribune:
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain yesterday vigorously disputed his opponent’s assertion that he had backed away from his own comprehensive plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws.
“I do ask for your trust that when I say I remain committed to fair, practical and comprehensive immigration reform, I mean it,” the Arizona senator told the National Council of La Raza conference at the San Diego Convention Center. “In all due modesty, I think I have earned that trust.”
