McCain, Graham Encouraged After Meeting With Obama

Rate this Entry

These days in Washington, it's hard to find Republicans with nice things to say about the President and vice versa. So I'm encouraged by the report that the meeting between pro-immigration Republican Senators working on the immigration bill and the President went well. The two sides apparently spent a fair amount of time talk about border enforcement and the Republicans seemed satisfied that their concerns were shared by the President.


From Elise Foley at Huffington Post:


Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on
Tuesday they came out of a meeting with President Barack Obama more
confident that he understands their argument that border security must
be given prominent weight in plans for comprehensive immigration reform.

"It was one of the best meetings I've ever had with the president," Graham told reporters.


"He understands we need border security that we can afford, and
Senator McCain made a strong point about the border," he added later.
"The president understands the working components of it, so I was, quite
frankly, encouraged."


McCain wouldn't comment on what he told the president, but also said
Obama seemed to be listening to his concerns about the southwest border.


"I am more confident after our conversation today," he told reporters.
