Ramesh says McCain makes false claims about his former views on giving illegals government benefits:
Romney, aided by Tom Tancredo and Joe Arpaio, is predictably going after McCain on immigration. Romney will be helped by the fact that today McCain said something that not even his friends in the press can defend. He said, at that Peterborogh town meeting, that he had never supported, and would never support, giving any government benefits to “someone who came to this country illegally.” That is provably false. But maybe it won’t help Romney, if McCain’s friends in the press just ignore it.
I guess McCain forgot about the time he wanted illegal immigrants to collect social security benefits on labor they did while illegally in America?
Something tells me he didn’t forget, but hopes we don’t remember.
