McCain's Constituents Fire Back at Home over Immigration

Fuming Arizona constituents fired criticism at Sen. John McCain over illegal immigration at town halls Tuesday.

"You said 'build the dang fence' - where's the fence?" one constituent named Keith Smith demanded of McCain.

"He doesn't want the American people to stand up and ask him the tough questions and hold his feet to the fire," Smith told NBC affiliate KPNX.

McCain told the crowd that Americans would not support a move to arrest all illegal immigrants in the United States and deport them. He also said he wouldn't support an effort to make people who had been in the United States illegally for decades to become guest workers because "we're a Judeo-Christian principled nation," drawing an angry response from some in the crowd.
