Sen. McCain Says Border Patrol Doesn’t Need Additional 20,000 Agents

Sen. John McCain, who is taking the lead on immigration reforms, said the Border Patrol doesn’t need an additional 20,000 agents, Politic365 reports.

What it needs, McCain said, is “use of technology that has been developed where we can survey the border more effectively.”

McCain spoke at an AFL-CIO immigration forum Wednesday.

The Senate in late June approved an immigration bill amendment that cost $40 billion, largely to hire the 20,000 agents.

It’s unclear whether McCain will be able to convince his colleagues that the bill is overkill.
