John McCain Said What About the Border Surge?

by gradycarter

“I mean, this is not only sufficient, it is well over sufficient. We’ll be the most militarized border since the fall of the Berlin Wall.”


-John McCain on the “border surge” amendment included in the Senate’s immigration bill. Considering that a) the Berlin wall ultimately fell down, and b) comparing a government to that of Josef Stalin is generally not considered a compliment these days, you’d assume McCain was speaking in opposition to the amendment. You would be wrong.
