Sen. John McCain backs the Dream Act and path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Sen. McCain said on ABC’s “This Week,” “We can’t go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. We cannot forever have children who were born here — who were brought here by their parents when they were small children to live in the shadows, as well.” This is a stark departure from the hardline stance many in the Republican Party have taken on immigration reform, including former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who suggested that self-deportation was an option.
