Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said his home state and others could be “up for grabs” in the 2012 presidential election, due in large part to the growing numbers of Hispanic voters and warned GOP candidates to watch their rhetoric on immigration issues. […]

McCain said Republican candidates will need to strike a “careful balance” on immigration when trying to court those voters.

“The Republican Party has to discuss this in as humane a way as possible,” he said.

“We have to have empathy, we have to have concern and we have to have a plan,” McCain added. “But at the same time, to say that we are going to have insecure borders . . . that’s not the message we want to send.”
