    McCain: If the Administration Doesn’t Enforce Border Security Provisions, ‘We Can Go

    McCain: If the Administration Doesn’t Enforce Border Security Provisions, ‘We Can Go To Court’

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) Starr)

    ( - When asked how voters could be confident that the Department of Homeland Security will enforce the border security elements of the Senate's “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) replied that "we can go to court."

    “We have the court system. That’s the way our government runs. If the executive branch does not enforce laws, then we can go to court and make sure tat those laws are enforced,” McCain said Tuesday while participating in an immigration town hall.

    "The fact is that if we pass this legislation, we will exercise congressional oversight number one. And number two is, if the executive branch is not enforcing the law, then we’ll go to court and I have confidence the courts will make them enforce the law.”

    McCain criticized the rationale that securing the border must be done before the nation's immigration system is reformed. “If you use that logic, which people are saying, ‘well, don’t pass legislation because the president won’t enforce it,' then let’s not pass any laws.”

    Under the Senate's immigration proposal, which would provide immediate legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, the U.S. Border Patrol would increase in size and 700 hundred additional miles of fencing would be completed.

    The plan also calls for installation of a variety of high-tech surveillance systems and ground sensors to be used to monitor the U.S. border with Mexico.

    So why hasn't it already gone to court and won forcing laws to be enforced? Instead everytime the court says whoever is filing has no right to file with the court and throws it out. But hey, its McCain, proof that brain cells are not needed if in DC.
