Skip to comments.Marco Rubio breathes life into limited DREAM Act [Democrats welcome compromise proposal]
Posted on 05/17/2012 8:58:21 AM PDT by kevcol
WASHINGTON U.S. Senator Marco Rubio's attempt to provide limited legal status to many of the children who entered this country illegally is finding a warm welcome from a surprising source: Senate Democrats.
The Florida Republican, who is huddling with Senate leaders from both parties this week, is emerging as a prominent player in the contentious debate over immigration. His search for an acceptable compromise on the long-sought DREAM Act has drawn tentative support across the party divide, raising the chances for passage in this election year.
"We've talked with them about policies that would help these kids but still be responsive to conservative principles," said Rubio spokesman Alex Conant. "The feedback we've gotten from them has been positive as well.
"There are a lot of people of good will on both sides who are willing to set politics aside and do something that would help these kids. We're cautiously optimistic we can get something done this year."
The DREAM Act "was dead in the water" until Rubio started working on his version of it, Conant noted.

Here's an idea, lets make Marco the GOP's heir apparent by appointing him Romney's running mate /s.
"You say this guy Mel Martinez is a rock-solid, true-conservative, patriot from Florida who opposes all forms of handouts and amnesty for illegals? Sounds good! Well, there's no need to vet him if Jeb Bush vouches for the guy! He's automatically got my vote!"
"You say this guy Marco Rubio is a rock-solid, true-conservative, patriot from Florida who opposes all forms of handouts and amnesty for illegals? Sounds good! Well, there's no need to vet him if Jeb Bush vouches for the guy! He's automatically got my vote!"
All Rubio is doing is help further isolate the conservative faction of the party. Its totally unnecessary. And he knows it.
Remember this the next time someone tells you how conservative Marco Rubio is.
Rubio’s only mistake has been not giving his proposal a name.
The result is mass mischaracterization as “amnesty” or “version of DREAM act”.
These attacks are from the “Shoot ‘em or Ship ‘em” crowd, who have no real world alternatives.
Beat that straw man, Larry.
You want to piss me off? Then start talking about amnesty again you effin’ traitors.
Using the “kids” as a prop in order to get backdoor amnesty for their illegal alien parents.
Next will be chain migration, then putting the indigent and elderly family members on SSI, etc.
They’re illegal, get them the hell out. Then enact and enforce all of the measures that are currently the law. Build the walls where you can and then use the natural barriers as a funnel of sorts. Let the BP and ICE do their damned jobs you bastards!
Deny them ALL taxpayer provided benefits, enforce the employment regulations, prosecute all identity theft, and then deport them ALL. Keep their families together, put them ALL on the same bus and then send those pieces of garbage in Mexico the bill.
Once you start cracking down, word will spread like wildfire, the rest will get the message and start heading for the border. And the so-called “activists”, if they get in the way, send them packing as well. Enough of this scaredy-cat, kids glove handling of the problem.
I stand with Sheriff Joe and other like minded folks!
Marco Rubio is a principled politician, which simply means that he sell us out less than the regular politicians.

Go to hell, Rubio.
Go back to your parents island and work for the Castro bothers.
Who voted in this piece of treasonous crap?
But somehow Rubio is still a fan favorite here.
I don’t get it.
But somehow Rubio is still a fan favorite here. I dont get it.
Does uneducated, stupid, non readers, and brain dead ring a bell?
” The DREAM Act “was dead in the water” until Rubio started working on his version of it, Conant noted.”
Traitor....I KNEW he would pull something like this. I never trusted him.
I wish I had the vocabulary to describe how much I dislike Rubio. But I would be kicked off and banded.
Maybe he could start up El Paderón again and be chief of it.
This idiot is worthless as a human.
So that's the new euphemism for socialist ideas.
And your solution is?

REFERENCE Fla investigation reveals 180,000 non-citizens may be registered to vote
Right Side News | 1/14/2012 | Dan Spencer / FR Posted by IbJensen
Florida officials have discovered that 180,000 registered voters may be non-citizens. A CBS4/Miami Herald analysis of information supplied by Miami-Dade shows a large number of the potential non-citizens voters cast ballots in the past including the 2000 election, when the presidency was decided by just over 500 votes.
According to Deputy Supervisor of Elections Christina White, there are a lot of non-citizens on our registration rolls. Floridas Division of Elections is checking the citizenship of voters by comparing drivers license records, which show whether a licensed driver is also a U.S. citizen.
Non-citizens are able to become registered voters in Florida because if a non- citizen checks the box on the voter registration form that says they are a citizen they are registered to vote, because the form is signed under oath.
Those registered who are identified as possible non-citizens are reported to the State Attorneys office. The States Attorney may charge anyone who unlawfully registered to vote with a felony.
According to the Heritage Foundations Hans Von Spakovsky, Floridas investigation is only looking at legal immigrants, not illegal aliens, who may have registered to vote even though they are not citizens. Von Spakovsky, a former member of the Federal Elections Commission, says that Florida is doing the right thing with this investigation, but is only scratching the surface.
Florida cant check for illegal aliens who registered to vote because the Federal government is not giving Florida access to Immigration and Naturalization Service records which would help identify illegals who have registered to vote.
You can watch Bill Hemmer and Hans Von Spakovsky discuss Floridas investigation of non-citizens illegally voting in the accompanying video here (link at web site).
Nearly four years after CNN reported on the scandalous ACORN voter fraud, and those fraudulent voter registrations were converted into fraudulent votes, we are still struggling to prevent voter fraud. Instead of working to prevent voter fraud, the Obama regime goes so far as to sue some states that require voters to show a photo ID in order to vote.
Oh that....no big deal. That happens in Mexico all the time (/snix).
RUBIO SUPPORTS THIS Raza studies is a virulent anti-America agenda, a bloodthirsty dream by illegals to kill off US citizens:
RUBIO SUPPORTS THIS One Raza Studies textbook titled Occupied America, by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood- curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him, (pg. 323).
RUBIO SUPPORTS THIS Taken directly from Occupied America (pg. 167): Supporters would execute all white males over age 16, (this is AKA the Plan of San Diego).
RUBIO SUPPORTS THIS America-hating Raza Studies teach violence and undermining US ntl security----and preaches the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation.
Course, if YOU oppose this, you are "heartless"....../s.
Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza/LULAC/Mecha/MALDEF indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools.
Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.
Raul Grijalva is one of Mexicos most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding and abetting building a Third World on US soil.
Raul Rubio : )
Still being talked up for Willard’s VP slot. They’d make a great couple.
Vote-crazed politicians peruse these lists when re/election comes around.

...... Florida election officials are set to announce that the secretary of state has discovered and purged up to 53,000 dead voters from the voter rolls in Florida. How could 53,000 dead voters have sat on the polls for so long? Simple. Because Florida hadnt been using the best available data revealing which voters have died.
Florida is now using the nationwide Social Security Death Index for determining which voters should be purged because they have died.
Here is the bad news. Most states arent using the same database that Florida is. In fact, I have heard reports that some election officials wont even remove voters even when they are presented with a death certificate. That means that voter rolls across the nation still are filled with dead voters, even if Florida is leading the way in detecting aBut surely people arent voting in the names of dead voters, the voter fraud deniers argue. Wrong.
Consider the case of Lafayette Keaton. Keaton not only voted for a dead person in Oregon, he voted for his dead son. Making Keatons fraud easier was Oregons vote by mail scheme, which has opened up gaping holes in the integrity of elections.
The incident in Oregon just scratches the surface of the problem. Massachusetts and Mississippi are but two other examples of the dead rising on election day.Florida should be applauded for taking the problem seriously, even if Eric Holders Justice Department and many state election officials dont.

BLOGGER The group Truth the Vote and TEA Party activists should get on this, and hammer on it as loudly as possible..... eliminating the possibility of vote fraud puts the Dems in a worse position.
We know we need to get enough votes to overcome the Ohaha team's plans by attacking the problem from multiple angles to get a clean and untainted victory and cripple the Democrat led effort to steal the elections:
purging voter lists of the dead,
insisting on voter ID,
placing multiple layers of scrutineers around polling stations
After the election, pressure the newly elected House, Senate and State legislatures to take firm action to clean up the system:
reduce the loopholes that allow voter fraud,
pass voter ID laws,
eliminating motor voter laws,
eliminating gerrymandered districts.
No, its not in any way about winning, incrementalism has given our enemies all they ever dreamed of getting, a little at a time.
Me thinks Fidel Rubio.
There was zero legitimate reason to revive the nightmare act, other than Rubio raising his personal status with the destroyers.
Rubio is about as much a statesman as Joe Biden.
“There was zero legitimate reason to revive the nightmare act, other than Rubio raising his personal status with the destroyers.”
Yep....Fidel Rubio indeed : )
