Skip to comments.Marco Rubio’s press secretary likens non-citizen permanent residency to slavery
Posted on 04/21/2013 10:09:55 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
Alex Conant @AlexConant: "We haven't had a cohort of people living permanently in US without full rights of citizenship since slavery".
Mind you, he isnt talking only about illegal immigrants. Hes talking about any non-citizen who lives in this country permanently, including millions of Green Card holders.
And by implication:
Conn Carroll @conncarroll: For those of you keeping score at home, Rubio spokesman @AlexConant just compared all Schumer-Rubio opponents to slave owners
If this is Team Rubios strategy for winning over conservatives, good luck with that.

I don’t listen to either on a regular basis anymore...but it’s gonna be mighty hard on their egos to adjust their narrative.
OK serious question. Can someone please explain to me why Freepers are still thinking this guy is a conservative, or better yet, actively campaigning against him? Folks, he is pushing an amnesty bill. It does not get any more liberal and country destroying than that.
If conservatism now accepts this kind of treachery and can excuse it then what is the point of being a conservative at all?
Again, this is a serious question, not a wise ass trolling comment.
Thanks for confirming what I have come to believe, that Marco Rubio is nothing but a RINO, and likely worse, a full-blown Democrat. Hopefully, he will have a little integrity, fess up, and change from R to D in the next election.
Edit...”Or NOT actively campaigning against him”
Sorry about that
Rubio is jumping the shark.
In a hurry.
Beat me to it. Damn right.
I don't live in Fla..but I sent money for his campaign. The Bank Of Berdie is closed for business.
We have some conservatives and Freepers that are easily duped when even the so-called conservative media presents the next shiny thing....we had some here slobbering over Chris Christie not too long ago before their eyes were finally open. Rubio had been presented as a rising star and a tea party hero repeatedly that its ingrained in some conservatives that he’s the one to lead them
On the campaigning thing I was more alluding to people carrying his water on right wing websites more than an actual campaign. But I imagine there WILL be those saying the same crap that ‘he is better than a Dem...Really?
Well, THIS is a humongous pair of clay feet for Rubio.
(Speaking in biblical terms, like the statue referred to in the book of Daniel which was made of composite iron and clay, which won’t mix into a durable blend.)
Oh I get it! I’m a minister as well. I totally get what you’re saying
I don’t consider myself “easily duped,” but I was completely wrong about Christie and Rubio.
when they say reform we get something like Obamacare
this new immigration bill is 1500 pages the equivalent of an immigration Obamacare that of course will grow government, give amnesty to illegals, and let 100 million more of their relatives in.
look people the problem is these laws, gov creates a problem as the 1965 immigration act another law created this illegal and 3rd world immigration problem , so they say lets fix immigration so then we get an even worse monster to add to our troubles, more gov, another 1500 page law which is not the answer. the answer is to repeal the 1965 immigration act as repealing Obamacare is
Alas in this day some over-zealot might get the idea that I was suggesting concrete shoes or some such thing. (Which is not the idea. I think he should be very humanely ousted from office if he continues down this road.)
I hate to say that I will vote for the lesser of two evils again...but I will. Once again if the occasion arises.
If the Dems run a candidate as anti-American as Obamster, which I expect they will, this country will be lost anyway.
There doesn’t seem to be a viable third party at this point. If something comes up that changes that, I’m on board.
Sad to say, but it looks like you are right, damn it.
People like Rubio, people with an Hispanic background, almost always have a vision problem when it comes to immigration.
They may sound quite reasonable or conservative on other concerns but when it comes to immigration they become inconsistent.
It’s too bad because Rubio did seem to hold conservative positions on other issues.
But I am glad he revealed his true beliefs at this early stage.
Is he insane? Or just illiterate + stupid.
Slaves were brought here as captives in chains and sold atauction. The illegals come here of their own free will and have countries they can return to.
I have been warning about Rubio ever since he was caught in the lie about his family fleeing Castro ( they didn’t) - but this is beyond the beyond the degree of leftist fraudulence I could have imagined.
