Thats funny. I've been watching this situation for decades now and everything I've seen and heard during that time informs me that Rubio and his plan are full of crap.
But lets see how it plays out - if I'm wrong and Rubio has an effective plan that really is good for this country I'll happily admit it.
If YOU are wrong I hope you'll have the integrity to admit it, as well.
Not that it'll matter, if this 'reform' falls short then nothing anyone says will matter anyway.
You may well be right. Rubio is Hispanic and he tilts toward “his people,” just like Obama tilts toward “his.” In a perfect world, all the illegals would have to go home, but it would appear that neither party is willing to do that. Even Reagan wouldn't. But we do need to make certain that the border is really secured before any illegals get amnesty. We should also change the so called “birthright citizenship.” Otherwise, Mexico will just continue to procreate and send us the results, because the “white” spaniards who run Mexico consider the “indigenous people” to be trash.
“If YOU are wrong I hope you’ll have the integrity to admit it, as well.”
If I am wrong? I think the only effective solution to illegal immigration is to cut off the goodies, and really secure the border. Rubio seems to be wanting to deal primarily with those that are already here (i.e. he’s vote buying). I would also prefer to deport all of those twelve million odd “break in artists,” but I’m not holding my breath that that will ever happen. We’ve been down this road more than once. We always seem to be able to “accommodate” the illegal influx, but we never get around to the stemming the tide piece. Maybe it’s time we invaded Mexico and threw out their corrupt government. Then we could control both sides of the border. The only real problem with Mexico is that it’s populated with “free-lunch folks.” Just think, we already have at least ten percent of Mexico’s population.
