Skip to comments.Marco Rubio goes all-in on immigration bill
Posted on 04/12/2013 8:39:16 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
Marco Rubio is preparing to go all in to support sweeping immigration legislation, offering himself up as the public face of a bill that will split the Republican Party but that his allies hope will propel him to the front of the GOP presidential sweepstakes.
After offering lukewarm support until now, Rubio is preparing to fully embrace a measure that is the most significant of his political career so far. The gambit could pay off in spades by crowning a leading presidential contender in 2016, or it could permanently damage the Republicans brand with conservatives.
Rubio is planning a media blitz to promote the bill which is expected to be released early next week making the rounds on all of the Sunday political talk shows starting this weekend, wooing skeptical conservative radio hosts and pitching the plan to Spanish-language news outlets. The campaign is aimed at building public support for the far-reaching immigration bill that will dominate Capitol Hills attention for much of year

Rand Paul is an amnesty supporter as well.
Marco Rubio is white , it's not his race he has allegiance to it's his CULTURE. Hispanic is not a race , there are white hispanics , black hispanics and those in between.
One thing is for sure ... his allegiance is not to the country or the constitution.
Another one trying to run for president who is NOT a natural born citizen .
Rubio is Nobio to me. I will not support him, I will not vote for him.
Dole, Bush, Bush, McCain, Romney, Rubio—they can keep them coming. But I’m not buying.
People and media keep referring to Cubans and those South of the Border as though they were of another race of people. Many are of European ancestry whose forefathers and mothers did not intermarry with the local Indians.
They are Caucasians.
Rubio, however, is a different breed altogether. He is NOT a Conservative nor has he ever been! More and more he appears to be a rino.
This isn't about pandering to anyone. This about changing the ethnic and political demographics of the country. White Middle class Christians want guns, prosperity, and their rights. We are too much trouble to rule over so we are to be displaced, diluted, and dispossessed.
Like Longshanks said in the 1995 classic Braveheart, " The trouble with Scotland is that it's full of Scots!...If we can't get them out, we'll breed them out."
Well, Since we were screamed at by a number of Freepers that, and I quote, “Principles don’t matter” “Purists are killing this country” and other words of sage ...ahem...conservative wisdom, I am looking forward to all said freepers coming out and loudly defending Rubio and the GOP on each and every one of the many threads on this subject.
You know...to be consistent, rather than displaying situational ethics. Like liberal Democrats.
Anyone want to place bets on the level of silence from said freepers?
Race first. Country second.
I don’t see anything conservative about him.
Yes, but that is why we have the category adopted by the Census Bureau and other USG agencies, of non-Hispanic whites. If you are an Hispanic white, you are entitled to perks such as affirmative action and minority business set asides. There are real incentives to identify as an Hispanic--an artificial category created to give some whites special benefits. Here in VA the Department of Minority Business defines Hispanic as follows:
Hispanic American means a person having origins in any of the Spanish-speaking peoples of Mexico, South or Central America, or the Caribbean Islands or other Spanish or Portuguese cultures and who is regarded as such by the community of which this person claims to be a part."
Tell that to La Raza.
Marco Rubio may be as white as snow, but underneath that white exterior lies a man who believes that people born south the the US Border are HIS PEOPLE and they deserve special treatment not allotted to people who were born in Europe or Asia or even America.
Most of the people who will benefit from this Amnesty are people who have committed multiple felonies such as identity theft, counterfeiting government ID's, evasion of taxes, welfare fraud.... If anyone born in this country were to have committed any of these crimes we would be behind bars at some Federal Prison.
But the political zeitgeist is that all Hispanic people are a members of a race deserving of special benefits and anyone who disagrees is a RACIST!
“Marco Rubio’s allegiance is to his race rather than his country.”
Rubio is white.
More like, allegiance to wishful thinking.
Don’t you think there are at least 1 million conservatives in this country who could descend upon DC on a given day for a rally against the GOP’s constant caving? Houston we have a problem, the GOP is no longer keeping the left from opening the floodgates. The GOP is constantly acting against their base. They will be destroyed at the ballot box come 2014.
Not perfect, like I said. If Palin isn’t clearly in the race VERY early, and if Ryan can’t establish himself as a leading candidate, I’ll settle for Rand Paul. I will not settle for the lower-tier RINOs though, like Christie, Rubio, or another Bush.
The current politically correct position is that if you don't support amnesty then you are a RACIST.
Rubio is only "white" on the outside.
“Anyone want to place bets on the level of silence from said freepers?”
Yep, pretty quiet out there, and that would be okay, if they would just come out and fight for the right thing now!
On another thread, the discussion of Rubio/Amnesty goes on.

Rubios chief-of-staff is a man named Cesar Conda.
Cesar Conda once worked as a Washington lobbyist for the Association of Immigration Lawyers.
OMG...its making more sense. I studied Conda a few years ago, researching Grover Norquist. Its worse than you know!
Conda was Dick Cheneys domestic policy advisor. He left there and went to work for George Soros. He is ALL about AMNESTY, always has been. He & Norquist destroyed prop 187 in California and theyre both tied into amnesty promotion with NEWT Gingrich!
WE MUST ROOT THESE INFILTRATORS OUT! THey are out to destroy conservatism and we are funding them! Its the same bunch behind the scenes EVERY TIME.
Rubio must be voted out....he is a Norquist/Rove/Bush man!!! Part of what theyve done is hijack several tea party names for fundraising and they use the $$$ AGAINST US!
Palin is also an amnesty supporter.

I believe his parents were not yet US citizens when he was born. If so, then IMHO he's no more Constitutionally eligible for the office than the Kenyan is.
I’d vote for Bo’s dog walker over Marco Rubio.
