WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is poking fun at Sen. John McCain’s claim he was not identified as a maverick.

Obama quipped Saturday night at the White House correspondent’s dinner that “we know what happens in Arizona when you don’t have an ID. … Adios amigos.”

McCain faces a tough re-election fight against a conservative opponent and has distanced himself from the maverick label he once embraced as a presidential candidate.

The president’s reference to McCain’s home state of Arizona referred to the new immigration law that local and state law enforcement to question people about their immigration status if there’s reason to suspect they’re in the country illegally. It also makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally.
