McCain’s Delicate Immigration Dance

John McCain must walk a fine line between courting up-for-grabs Latino voters who are sympathetic toward illegal immigrants and retaining traditional Republican voters who demand a harsher line toward those same immigrants. McCain has already earned the enmity of many Republicans over his support for comprehensive immigration reform. For now, the anti-immigration voters have no options – the presumptive Republican and Democratic nominees both support immigration reform and humane treatment of immigrants, legal or illegal. For now, the anti-immigrant voters can only hope to keep pressing their case with the candidates still left in the race. – YaleGlobal
