Posted on 02/18/2013 4:10:12 AM PST by tobyhill
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Saturday panned a reported immigration reform proposal from President Obama, saying it would be dead on arrival in Congress.
If actually proposed, the Presidents bill would be dead on arrival in Congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come, said Rubio in a statement.
His response followed a report in USA Today on Saturday which said the Obama administration has prepared a draft plan that includes a provision to allow illegal immigrants to obtain green cards within eight years.
The proposal would create a Lawful Prospective Immigrant visa to allow holders to work and travel after undergoing a criminal background check and paying fees. After eight years under the visa, an immigrant could apply for legal permanent residency as a green card holder.

Well Gee Marco if the President’s plan is so dead why will it leave a hold for years. Where is yours that is so much better. Propose it and get it passed.
Does it really matter?
We are going to continue to be invaded no matter whose plan is passed, and we will continue to bear the burden of these invaders.
Round up ALL illegals and send em back from where they came
That would be my plan.
Don’t get why we need all these people.
We don’t need them and we don’t need their ailing grandmothers, aunts, uncles, and long lost cousins either.
America is FULL and we’re broke.
Does anyone want to bet that it is dead? If you do, you haven’t been following the timid “go along to get along” Republican defeatists or simply have not been paying attention to the horrific damage the Republicans have done to our freedoms in their effort to appease all racial factions.
Rubio wants to claim "a win" for the GOPe with his own plan that is just as bad.
That’s my guess too.
He’s got a proposal out. He’s been on tv for weeks discussing the requirements, and there are major differences between thi leaked plan and his outline.
It is time for solutions and positive action and all you and your ilk do is piss and moan!
No problemo, senor. Emperor 0bama will just declare amnesty for all illegals.
Give us some examples of what YOU would do, please.
... and all you and your ilk do is piss and moan!
Are you sure that's all we do?
That’s cause Obama does not care about immigration reform. He only wants the issue for the 2014 midterms.
Okay. Then quit, pack up and leave and cease your pointless whining!
