WASHINGTON -- Republican Sen. Marco Rubio-- whose reaction to the Obama administrations immigration order will likely be one of the most closely watched of his party-- issued a carefully worded statement Friday that called for helping young illegal immigrants but criticized the presidents approach.
There is broad support for the idea that we should figure out a way to help kids who are undocumented through no fault of their own, but there is also broad consensus that it should be done in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future, the Florida senator said. This is a difficult balance to strike, one that this new policy, imposed by executive order, will make harder to achieve in the long run.
Todays announcement will be welcome news for many of these kids desperate for an answer, but it is a short-term answer to a long-term problem, he added. And by once again ignoring the Constitution and going around Congress, this short-term policy will make it harder to find a balanced and responsible long-term one.

If mittens picks this Anarchist Loon Marco Rubio,
I'll find someone else to vote for.
A short term answer?
End of our constitutional republic.
We’re not a nation of laws.
We changed immigration policy because Obama say so, not because the law changed. He refuse to enforce the law as sworn to do.
What is coming next
We are a nation of laws, not men. Obama lamented that the "Republican House" wouldn't pass his immigration bill, so he HAD to do this. Last I checked, law starts in the House. Hell, even in our liberal progressive school systems, kids are still taught that laws start in the House.
His immigration bill was shot down with bipartisan majorities every time, and now he's ruling by fiat.
This is a declaration of war on the American people, folks.
There is broad support for the idea that we should figure out a way to help kids who are undocumented through no fault of their own, but there is also broad consensus that it should be done in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future. This is a difficult balance to strike, one that this new policy, imposed by executive order, will make harder to achieve in the long run.”
That’s a pretty good answer right there, although obviously I wish that he would have been less diplomatic and said outright that what Obama is trying to do violates U.S. law and thus would be an unconstitutional act by the president.
Rubio stepped in a steaming pile - he shoulda waited to see the public’s reaction before lending his support.
Politically, a brilliant response.
He’s right. Quite frankly, I don’t have a huge objection to eventually doing this. The thing that freaks me out is that Bambi completely ignored the political process, permitted no input from congress and had no political debate. This is because he doesn’t have any ideas or the political skill to present them even if he had them...and he’s doing this just for votes.
They are here though no fault of law abiding citizens, you MF-ing piece of degenerate scum.
One couldn’t miss the birds shirping loudly in the backround during Obambam’s statement.
THEY WERE CUCKOO BIRDS - - -
Yea, if you are fool who "worships" politicians.
Rubio is 100% in favor of EVERY illegal eventually getting citizenship. He can't come out and say it, but that is exactly the end result of the policies that Rubio supports.
Rubio is a Conservative fraud. Rubio knows the end result of what he (Rubio) wants is an America transformed into a third-world sewer.
Rubio's only reason for existing is he desire to one-day be President. Rubio wants to get the votes of hispanics. Hence, Rubio's position.
Rubio is just another slimy politician who happens to be able to "come across" as a real conservative (which he is not)
Rubio's position would only give incentive for 10's of millions of more third world scum to run across the border and start reproducing. He knows that is exactly what will happen.
Rubio: Obama only wants them to be able to vote & not get caught doing so.
Fiat decrees from the executor of laws (that’s what the President is) are unconstitutional. Rubio should only have condemned THAT. The rest is not important. He is useless and needs to be replaced.
Scratch Rubio as a possible VP ... it is SOOOO Easy to eliminate the RINOS these days ... they wave the RINO flag so high you can’t miss it. Thank you Marco.
Once again a misleading headline intended to create a false impression to those that don’t bother to read the story.
