McCain: Boehner Should Do Whatever He Thinks Is Appropriate on Immigration

'They’ve got to pass something. I'm not telling them what they should pass'

McCain Backs Boehner on Immigration: House Should ‘Do Whatever They Think is Appropriate’ (CNS News)

When asked by CNSNews.com about Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) push for immigration reform in the House, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he has “hope” the House will take up the issue but that GOP representatives should follow their own lead.

On Capitol Hill on Wednesday, CNSNews.com asked Sen. McCain, “Speaker Boehner has said we need to do something this year, this session” on immigration, “so what do you hope happens, sir?”

McCain said, “Well, I hope so -- they’ll take up legislation and we can then engage in negotiations with them, go to conference. I mean, the normal legislative process. But they’ve got to pass something. I’m not telling them what they should pass.”
