Floridians: ask John McCain questions he can't answer!
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
[Arizona Sen. John McCain] will be in Miami on Thursday and will promote a business-backed guest worker program and other immigration reforms. The Arizona senator will speak at "town hall" meeting in South Florida sponsored by the New American Opportunity Campaign. That group includes labor unions, business interests, Hispanic groups and other supporters of guest worker program.
If you're in Miami, could you please try to attend this event and publicly embarass John McCain by trying to ask him a tough question he can't answer? Unfortunately, the event isn't listed at his site (mccain.senate.gov), nor is it listed at that groups's site (cirnow.org). Perhaps there will be an announcement soon, or perhaps they're keeping it private to avoid difficult questions.
For instance, ask him why he wants to bring around 36 million new people here over the next 8 years.
On a more generic note, ask him how we could end illegal immigration without doing something about political corruption. And, point out that his bill is an example of political corruption: giving in to those forces that oppose our immigration laws rather than fighting against our enemies.
If you prefer the sign format, try something like: "McCain-Kennedy, the massive amnesty prefered by 9 out of 10 corrupt Mexican government officials" or similar.
You can also ask him what he's doing speaking before a group that, through a member of its board of directors, allegedly has links to the Mexican government. Is John McCain willing to sell out America to Mexico? Here are few groups on their board of directors:
* Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA, allegedly has links to the Mexican government)
* National Council of La Raza ("National Council of The Race")
