the military and federal service from the Vietnam era up
to and including to the terrorist attacks against
America that culminated in 9/11.
On the issues of illegal immigration, crime and
stealth amnesty, Presidential hopeful McCain is
unpopular with retired as well as active duty U.S.
Border Patrol Agents and union
local 2544 because he has worked actively to make
their jobs more difficult.

the DREAM Act to grant in-state tuition and
amnesty for more than a million illegal aliens under
