Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Wednesday that the issue of illegal immigration angered people unlike no other, including the unpopular war in Iraq, and sparked unprecedented death threats against him.
"It is unbelievable how this has inflamed the passions of the American people," the Arizona senator said in remarks at The Aspen Institute, a public policy forum. In an interview, he declined to elaborate on the threats he had received.
I can relate to the inflamed passions. Its baffling and at times irrational (though I have never received any death threats). Someone did mock me once by saying that my name must really be "Jose"... I still haven't figured that one out! LOL It's amazing how many freedom loving conservatives would quickly opt to silence my opinions, despite the fact that I am against illegal immigration.
