New York, Apr.21 (ANI): Senator John McCain has said that illegal immigrants are intentionally causing car accidents along state freeways.
Defending the tough new Arizona immigration bill against the possibility of racial profiling, McCain told Bill O'Reilly on his television show that while he'd be "very sorry" if a Hispanic person suffered the indignity of racial profiling, the law would punish illegal wrongdoers.
"It's the people whose homes and property are being violated. It's the drive-by that-the drivers of cars with illegals in it that are intentionally causing accidents on the freeway," the New York Daily News quoted McCain, as saying.
McCain mentioned Robert Krantz, an Arizona cattle rancher who was recently gunned down with his dog. Police believe his killer was an illegal immigrant.
"The state of Arizona is acting and doing what they feel they need to do in light of the fact that the federal government is not fulfilling its fundamental responsibility to secure our borders," McCain told O'Reilly.
"Look, our border is not secured. Our citizens are not safe," he said. (ANI)
