In an EXCLUSIVE interview on “This Week,” Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., invited President Obama to the Arizona border.

“[Sen.] Jon Kyl and I invite the President to come to the Arizona Sonora border. The violence is incredibly high,” McCain said. “The human smuggling and drug cartels are at a level of violence where 23,000 Mexican citizens have been murdered in the last few years. … There is a level of violence which has increased to a significant degree which makes the situation far different than it was in 2007,” he said.

“We have to secure the borders,” McCain said. “We can get it secure then we can move on with comprehensive immigration reform. But I invite the President to come to the border and he can see for himself the absolute necessity of getting our border secure.”
