IF RUBIO'S AMNESTY IS SO GREAT, WHY IS HE LYING? ... Ann Coulter
Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 17 April 2013 | Ann Coulter

Posted on 04/18/2013 12:15:14 AM PDT by Rummyfan

When Republicans start lying like Democrats, you can guess they are pushing an idea that's bad for America. During his William Ginsburg-like tour of the Sunday talk shows last weekend, Sen. Marco Rubio was the Mount Vesuvius of lies about his immigration bill.

Here is how Rubio explained the powerful border-enforcing mechanism in his bill on "Fox News Sunday," which he denied was merely a meaningless goal:

"Basically, Homeland Security will have five years to meet that goal. If after five years, Homeland Security has not met that number, it will trigger the Border Commission, who will then take over this issue for them."

So the water torture awaiting the Department of Homeland Security if it fails to secure the border is ... ANOTHER GOVERNMENT COMMISSION WILL BE CREATED! Take that, Homeland Security! Ha -- we have you now!

The only thing more frightening than "another government commission" is a "strongly worded letter."

Rubio said his comprehensive immigration plan isn't amnesty because "amnesty is anything that says 'do it illegally, it will be cheaper and easier.'" But, he assures us, it's "cheaper, faster and easier for people to go back home and wait 10 years" -- as the law currently requires -- "than it will be to go through this process that I've outlined."

Then why is he doing it? If it's "cheaper, faster and easier" for illegals to apply for citizenship under current law, what exactly does Rubio's plan accomplish?

It's hard to trust Ann anymore since she left the conservative camp a couple of years ago, but in this matter she is entirely right.

Good for her, but it would go a long way in my eyes if she apologized for some of her nonsensical trashing of her conservative common sense in the past couple of years.

If Chris “Doublewide” Christie is so great, why does he love Obama and Islam, Ann? If Mitt Romney is so great, how did he lose to the worst president in US history?

A commission sounds like the Brits quango and is worthless. All it takes now is one corrupted person.

So, if the feckless mess known as DHS can’t get the border secured, we’ll form a commission, who will fail as well.

Stop with the games, Rubio... your intention all along has been to give full citizenship and voting rights to these invaders.

Rubio is popular with Cuban Hispanics but not accepted by Mexicans. Partly racist due to skin color but in general Mexicans reject Cubans and Venezuelans. The clueless RNC doesn’t get this.

Not only is she right, but she’s saying what very few supposedly conservative pundits or pols (where’s Sarah Palin been on this issue?) are saying in any way, shape or matter.

Like to see some eruptions from Tootsie or the Cubano Volcano on this part of “amnesty”.

TWO QUESTIONS ON AMNESTY

(1) When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ?

This is a question: Should Mexican citizens when in the US be given the same rights American citizens are given while in Mexico? This has yet to appear on any US legislator’s questionaire from either chamber....ASK YOUR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS WHY IT HASN’T

(2) What makes it necessary for US to subjugate our sovereignty because of available cheap labor ? While we encourage wholesale abortion as the Godless Demo-Coms socialists encourage population control and abortion Then complain the US is not reproducing enough citizens to replace its aging supply of workers to keep our welfare ponzie schemes supplied with tax money and keep the system working.

Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.

Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.

Americans can’t own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash they’ll get unceremoniously sent back or wind up in the calabose until some relative comes up with the “fresh”. That’s just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea let’s give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections

The gang of eight is expected to present a complex immigration plan next week.

Will the American people support it?

"If they first will make sure the borders are secure then I think American public will be open to hearing what bureaucratic regulatory solutions are, but first and foremost is securing the border," said Palin.


Palin, Brewer talk immigration reform

This week immigrants living in this country illegally will likely find out what they need to do to become U.S. citizens. Lawmakers are days away from announcing details of the most sweeping immigration reform bill this country's seen in a quarter century.

"There needs to be truth in this issue. The American public can't keep being told that the border is as secure as ever or more secure than ever when that is not true," said Palin.

Brewer and Palin said they are anxious to see exactly what lawmakers in Washington have come up in regards to immigration reform.

The bill is expected to include details of a guest worker program as well as a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally. The proposal will also outline steps the federal government needs to take to secure the border. Both women agreed the border needs to be secured before any talk of amnesty.

"LaRaza" or "The Race".
Better put, ERASE "the race"!
If they can't serve the HUMAN RACE, but want their race first, well then ... to HELL with their race.

Right. When directly asked she defaulted to what McCain was spouting a couple of years ago: “Border security first, then we can talk about next steps”—which is simply slow amnesty.

But with months of the Gang of Eight preparing to ram this through in Obamacare style (force a vote before anyone can actually read, let alone mobilize people against the actual verbiage in it), Gov. Palin’s been silent. Meanwhile, she’s been Tweeting and Facebooking up a storm on other issues that will all be lost causes once 30 million-plus illegals start voting.

I like Palin, but she’s been AWOL on this issue, which is the single greatest current threat to this country and conservatism.

Massive voter fraud (again) and 6+ million of the Conservative Base stayed home and didn’t vote.

4yrs of Romney would be 100x better than 4yrs of 0scumbag.

He wasn’t my choice either, but he was “what’s for dinner” on the “2-item menu”, dammit. Look what we’ve got, now.

The past 4yrs were horrible; the next 4 are going to be catastrophic and probably unfixable.

Mark Levin used to say something along the line of, “Get Romney into office; we can deal with him later.”
