McCain flip-flopping on immigration?

Yesterday, KJ posted a link to an NYTimes story on John McCain's stance on immigration. It is worth noting that previously, McCain indicated that he favored legislation that would allow most illegal immigrants to become citizens without leaving the country. But according to the article linked in KJ's post, McCain now says he is "open to legislation that would require people who came to the U.S. illegally to return home before applying for citizenship." Hmmm...

Meanwhile, it looks like Rep. Gutierrez (D-Ill.) and Rep. Flake (R- Ariz.) plan to introduce bipartisan legislation in the House tomorrow that does require noncitizens to leave the country to legalize, although they would be able to carry out the process in Mexico or Canada even if they are from another country. More on their bill is here.

Noooooo problemo... Let him flip flop on immigration all the way to oblivion. Mr. McCain knew the invasion was a problem in 2001 and as a legislator of our laws, we very badly do NOT need anyone who does not understand the illegal aliens business is AGAINST THE LAW. And if McCain did not know any of the above, we need to get a broom and help that flip flopping to oblivion.. along.
