Comments: McCain pushes for Guest Worker Plan
WASHINGTON -- President Bush needs to do more to help push a temporary guest worker program through Congress, Republican Sen. John McCain, the author of a key immigration bill, said Tuesday.
McCain, acknowledging that Bush has stepped up a campaign on behalf of the program, said the president has credibility on the issue because he was governor of Texas, the state with the largest border with Mexico.

McCain held the conference call in advance of town hall meetings in Miami on Thursday and New York on Monday.
