McCain: Optimistic on possible immigration reform

PHOENIX -- Sen. John McCain said he is looking forward to working with President Barack Obama on a possible overhaul of American immigration laws.

"I appreciate that the president is committed to it and we look forward to working with him," he told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR's Mac & Gaydos on Tuesday.

Despite his optimism, McCain knows it will likely be an uphill battle, even with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who is a staunch advocate for securing the border.

"I've tried to do the best I can to ensure her that we will not trigger any further movement towards a legalization of people who are here illegally until we have a secure border."

McCain, citing a new Israeli fence, said it is very possible for the United States to fully secure the border and to crack down on illegal immigrants should a reform pass.

McCain said that several members of both the House and Senate are against any kind of change to immigration policy.
