McCain: Immigration Reform Crucial to GOP Success

Sunday, 16 Feb 2014 08:20 PM

By Greg Richter

Sen. John McCain says he hasn't yet given up on immigration reform – and he believes failure to pass anything will hurt GOP chances at the ballot box.

"States like mine, over time, the demographics will overtake, not only mine but throughout the whole Southwest and many other parts of the country," the Arizona Republican said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

A failure to embrace Latino voters could spell doom as Republicans approach this years midterm congressional elections and the 2016 presidential campaign, McCain said.

The Senate, where McCain serves, has already passed immigration reform, but the effort is stalled in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

McCain said he will work see a bill passed through Congress for the president's signature before the midterms.

"I have not given up hope that we will act, and we must act," he said.
