Skip to comments.Surprise: Rubio is “all-in” for amnesty
Posted on 04/12/2013 6:47:44 PM PDT by prairiebreeze
Politico reports that Marco Rubio is prepared to go all in to support sweeping immigration legislation, offering himself up as the public face of the bill. This isnt much a surprise. In all likelihood, Rubio has been prepared to be the front-man in the push for amnesty and path for citizenship for illegal aliens from the get-go. His sponsorship of reprehensible efforts to demonize critics of amnesty have shown him to be every bit as much of a ruthless pro-amnesty ideologue as Chuck Schumer, for whom he is fronting.

Sent to the ash heap.
I’ve always viewed Rubio as the Second Coming of Crist. Watch for the change in party registration.
Do we really believe Politico? Any liberal media outlet will color the “news” to favor their side. How stupid can we be to continue to feed these people?
I’d prefer to wait until I hear from Marco Rubio himself.
However, it’s not a surprise to me anyway....
Rubio is a next generation RINO. conservative at times but will sell us out at will. A career politician that can’t be trusted
I guess he wants to be president of —Mexico— someday...
He’s a lawyer, after all.
He sold out to the unions.
Pandering to the illegals is working so well for him so far. Not. At a recent protest those in favor of amnesty were carrying anti Rubio signs; when a reporter asked them about it they admitted they don’t even know who he is...The illegals are already owned by the dims; lock, stock, and barrel. The only ones who doubt this are Republicans.
There are Rubio youtube videos, words direct from the horse’s mouth. Google it. Bolo for the weasel words.
A Cuban becoming the president of Mexico would be quite a feat.
First TEA party event I ever went to in early 09 was to hear Rubio speak at some bar.
He was heckled due to his opposition as FL speaker against AZ’s immg laws.
In his own words (with conditions) ILLEGAL aliens would have a path to citizenship.
Second Coming of Christ....LOL so true
Guarantee, though, there will still be PhonyCon Liberals who will insist Rubio is Conservative.... and our best chance to win in 2016. Sean Hannity will continue to have nocturnal emission over Rubio
Time to wake up on Rubio
La Raza Rubio is a fraud.
I understand you'll get your chance.....he's going out on the talk shows this weekend to hype it.
If they'd released this news on Thursday, I'd have felt a bit better....maybe. But a Friday late afternoon news dump.....watch out.
The only path to citizenship, and the only amnesty for illegal aliens, should be to return to their home country, submit applications through the US consulate, and wait, just like any other applicant.
Otherwise, they may choose to register as a guest worker, stay and work for a short period, and then return home to allow room for another guest worker to take their place.
If they choose neither path, and are apprehended, they should be identified and figerprinted, deported and denied for life any of the above options.
Rubio is a smooth talker but I never trusted him.
By the way, Rubio’s chief-of-staff used to be a lobbyist for the Association of Immigration Lawyers.
I would hazard a guess that Zhang did mean Crist, as in Charlie.
If this or any other amnesty passes, it’s the end of the GOP and the beginning of the implementation of socialism, Latino-style. Rubio is beyond dense - I just wish he’d start calling amnesty amensty instead of that stupid phrase “comprehensive immigration reform” that’s . . . amnesty. Non, Senor Rubio, you suck.
Good let him commit suicide now so we don’t have to fight to keep him from gettig the nomination in 2016.
I think you are on to something.
As of now, it seems that a Rand Paul/Sarah Palin ticket is our last hope.
If they GOP can’t take back the WH in 2016, I will be retiring overseas.
For those of you that wish to call me a “coward” for “fleeing my country” I don’t even recognize my country anymore as it left me years ago and won’t be coming back in my lifetime.
So I will enjoy my final years on a sugar-white beach with windex-blue water and inexpensive cost of living.
I’ll be able to live an upper middle-class lifestyle, but if I chose to stay in America, or what’s left of it, I would be living in poverty.
Either way, I’ll be a minority, so I might as well be a minority in a country where my USD (hopefully) buys me more.
12 Million new voters, all of them Illegals. Now how do you think they will vote?
The lower US will be known as “Northern Mexico” by the year 2025 as they continue to flood our borders and breed like bunnies.
I would rather the mass deportations, but I know that it will never happen - I'd be glad to see something actually done to secure the borders. One might ask just who their champions are and what those champions are doing to attain the sought after goal.
Well said. Those holding out for mass deportation, and calling anything less “amnesty” as if it were the same as 1986, are not practical or reasonable, IMO.
Obviously the devil is in the details, which will leak out as time goes on. But why are we endorsing a Gang’s action? What’s to be happy about siding up with the likes of Chuck Schumer? Why didn’t Rubio INSIST on open hearings like the article asks?
Friday afternoon news dumps, ignoring the requests of fellow GOP senators for information for the last week, cozying up with democrats....yeah, what’s not to be suspicious of?
And as somebody who actually lives on the border, I share your desire for more security. But talk is also very cheap.
Rubio is the big player in the gang of 8. Hes a rino fraud who fooled the tea party.
Grover vs. the Bitter Enders(Grover trying to give Rubio political cover)

One of Grovers amnesty buddies, Cesar Conda is Rubios chief of staff!
Exclusive: Senator Marco Rubios Chief of Staff Maintains Financial Ties To Lobbying Firm
[snip]What sets Rubios office apart is Condas continued financial relationship with his lobbying firm. While many lobbyists tunnel deep into the upper echelons of government, most at least severe overt ties with their former clients. In Rubios case, his chief of staff still has an umbilical cord attached to K Street.
WAKE UP TEA PARTY, you are being USED!
Conda, immigrant rights lawyer, 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 decades long amnesty promotion with NEWT Gingrich!
Rubio, through Norquist & Conda are using SPLC (who has named FR a hate group) talking points to destroy any anti amnesty group.
LOL -- got me! (Removing flying bugs from mouth.)
SOOOO..... who foisted Rubio on Florida conservatives? Who's the culprit behind the curtain? Grover Norquist? Or Soros?
“SOOOO..... who foisted Rubio on Florida conservatives? Who’s the culprit behind the curtain? Grover Norquist? Or Soros? “
Good question. Could be both.
We need a better way to vet candidates.
