Senator John McCain made a quick stop in Ft Myers Tuesday as part of a five city tour of Florida over the next couple of days.
The Senator’s plane landed at the Private Sky Aviation terminal at Southwest Florida International around 10-30 Tuesday morning. During a brief news conference McCain discussed his take on the war in Iraq, his trailing in the polls and national security. He spoke about the importance of immigration reform in reference to Cuban immigrants who’ve recently landed on Sanibel Island.
“I understand the people who flee from communist oppression…throughout all during the cold war we gave sanctuary to. I understand the feet, wet feet dry policy. This policy is not a good one but no one knows a better one yet.”
McCain also says more needs to be done to protect the nation’s borders which include the thousands of miles of coastline in Florida. From Ft Myers he flew to Miami to meet with campaign finance officials. He will also travel to West Palm Beach, Jacksonville then Orlando during his two day swing through the sunshine state.
