ASPEN, COLO. - Presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Wednesday that the issue of illegal immigration angered people unlike no other, including the war in Iraq, and sparked unprecedented death threats against him.

“It is unbelievable how this has inflamed the passions of the American people,” McCain said at The Aspen Institute, a public policy forum. He declined to elaborate on the threats.

McCain acknowledged that the immigration issue, along with his support for the war in Iraq, had cost him politically.

“These issues I have to take head-on,” he said.

McCain said the United States is making progress in Iraq, and he recommended that the U.S. take a hard line against Iran.
