Skip to comments.Do you agree with Rubio that the "immigration" plan isn't amnesty?

This "immigration bill" (why not call it what it is a so-called attempt to deal with ILLEGAL immigration) not just an immigration plan - why do they leave the WORD illegal out - supposedly has some key components:
1.) Penalties. 2.) Back to the end of the line. 3.) Illegals cannot get gov't handouts (food stamps, etc). I thought that for all these years they weren't eligible, weren't receiving them an/or they never did in the first place... 4.) An E-Verify system.
Big Problem though...where is the simultaneously offered strong border control component(s), with many more border control agents, strong National Guard assistance, more fences in channel areas that illegals flood into far more often and in larger numbers than in other areas along the border?
Where is that at?
What say you?
I may not agree with this plan and all of the details, but Rubio is no RINO. Please, I am sick and tired of people who throw out the term RINO when they don’t agree with some one.
Susan Collins is a RINO, not Rubio.
Rubio wants AMNESTY for the 30,000,000 illegal aliens
The Ministry of Border Security reminds us that “Open Borders are Secure Borders”
I say he’s selling the country down the river.
My tagline gives the answer.
Any law that allows them to stay here and get citizenship (voting ) after illegally living here is a huge jump ahead in line to those others respecting our laws.
All that Rubio 10 year crap doesnt impress me, remove citizenship(voting) and Dems bail.
He was a Tea Party favorite, but if he isn’t lurching more and more to the GOP-e than who isn’t?
Just more big-tent bull. Big tent always leads to the GOP-e taking over and conservatives/Tea Partiers get a few bones tossed to them every now and then.
I don’t trust Rubio.
I’ll beleive the enforcement parts of the proposal will be enforced right after current immigration laws are enforced.
You keep throwing out terms like GOP-e, but you haven’t said what policies he is in favor of to make him a RINO.
I am skeptical of this plan, but this doesn’t make him a RINO. He voted against cloture in the gun debate, he is opposed to 0bamacare, and he is in favor of border security.
He is also in favor of less government, and he is pro-life.
I am also tired of people who anointed themselves the one who determines who is conservative and who isn’t.
Why not call it what it is a so-called attempt to deal with ILLEGAL immigration.
And the show goes on.
and he is pro-life.
yeah well thats got several different meanings too...
Where in Rubio's plan is the much-promised border fence?
Where are the tranquillizer and net-throwing drones?
but this doesnt make him a RINO
Supporting his illegal aliens for AMNESTY doesnt make him pro-America...
And those 30 million aren't even the worst of the problem. The worst part is the billion or so south of the border who will have observed this and the previous efforts at comprehensive immigration 'reform' and sussed out that they too should get here quick to cash in on the next amnesty. Instead of erecting disincentives to illegally enter, Rubio et. al. are further motivating millions more to try their luck crossing the border, turning the US into the biggest piñata of all time.
There are several meanings for “pro-life” and him supporting illegal aliens for amnesty hardly makes him a Tea partier.
I am tired of those who are enablers of the GOP-e.
When the penalties specified by law are waived for a large group of people, that’s an amnesty. Rubio is playing the same word games - telling LIES - with the American people as W and a long list of others. To pretend that substituting small fines and granting a path to citizenship in lieu of deportation somehow makes it not an amnesty is deliberate deceit and outright lying,, not to mention insulting to the American people.
Rubio continues to play the same role for Amnesty as Bart Stupach played for Obamacare. He’s pretending to stand up for a critical issue (border security) while moving things toward the ultimate leftist goal of amnesty for illegal aliens.
BTW, read #14, 15, 16 and 19 on this thread and then say to all here at FR that Rubio isn’t a RINO.
