The bipartisan blueprint for immigration reform released in January was generally well-received across the country and across ideological lines. And Sen. John McCain’s participation — as well as that of rising Republican star Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) — gave the plan a level of legitimacy and a promise of success not seen since the 2007 McCain-led effort to reform the immigration system, which ultimately failed. The reception back home was not nearly as positive, as McCain has learned in often-hostile town hall meetings over the past two days.
