Meghan Mccain Immigration

The new immigration laws coming to Arizona are causing controversy around the country, with many decrying their threat to civil rights, but others defending them as necessary measures. Now Meghan McCain is joining the dray, strongly criticizing the law erven as her own father voices support for it.

Speaking of the new law, Meghan said, "I believe it gives the state police a license to discriminate, and also, in many ways, violates the civil rights of Arizona residents," in her column, entitled "Hate the Law, Not Arizonans." "Simply put, I think it is a bad law that is missing the bigger picture of what is really going on with illegal immigration."

John McCain has said the new immigration law is a "good tool" for law enforcement trying to stem the tide of undocumented immigrants, although even he has acknowledged the current make up of the law may have some problems. Janet Napolitano on behalf of the Obama administration has voiced serious concerns about the law.

Republican Sen. John McCain's daughter Meghan is speaking out against Arizona's new immigration law, taking a different stance than her father. In a column published at The Daily Beast, Meghan McCain, who often tries to position herself a spokesperson of sorts for young Republicans, called the new law "seriously flawed" and "essentially a license to pull someone over for being Hispanic." The new law compels police officers to question a person about his or her immigration status if there is "reasonable suspicion" that person may be in the country illegally.
