Skip to comments.Rubio hit hard after inviting comments on immigration bill (comments at Help Us Improve the Bill)
Posted on 04/29/2013 12:01:56 AM PDT by Fred
Senator Marco Rubio, the leading Republican behind the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform proposal, has often challenged those who criticize the bill to come up with ways to improve it. And not just his fellow lawmakers; Rubio has opened a new page on his Senate website asking for help from the public. Visit our website and submit your ideas to Help Us Improve the Bill, says an announcement from Rubios office Friday. Since the immigration legislation was introduced, Rubio has received over 1,100 suggestions for how to improve the bill. Rubio encourages the public to continue reviewing the bill and sharing their ideas on ways to make the bill better when the time comes to amend the legislation.

Is “Secure the Borders FIRST, and then we’ll talk” on there?
Think he’s getting the hint?
Who cares what you think?
Marco, give us photo id to vote and then we can talk.
Glad to hear that.
Over 1,000, that is just a beginning.
Screw you Rubio. /rude
Rubio is serious about sealing the border. He says Homeland Security has 5 years to "come up with a plan", and if they don't, well ...there will be a commission!
supposedly then the border states get to deal with it their way. i see tons of lawsuits against the states to prevent them from doing what they’d like. by then there will be so many illegals in those states the elected officials will be pro-illegals voted in by illegals.
rubio in short believes we are naive idealistic idiots. he can go kiss my ass.
Wonder what the real reason they want to pass this? The Republicans thinking they will get guaranteed voters is pure BS and they know it. The Democrats getting voters is also BS and they know it. It’s to destroy America and it’s people. To have slavery of their choice.
What these guys don’t understand if they bothered to read their history is they will go down with the ship as well as the rest of us including any illegal and illegal immigrants. Those FEMA coffins aren’t just out there for us.
I think its about business wanting the cheap labor and they give lots of money to politicians.
My guess is Rubio will eventually throw his hands up and say we are all just a bunch of “hopeless racists” for not wanting to commit national suicide, then he’ll pull, ironically, a Charlie Crist and switch parties.
He cannot have been hit too hard... my comment is “waiting for the moderator”. I have some issues... lack of enforcement of the current laws, border security, Obamacare paying employers to hire immigrants. Additionally, the Boston bombers clearly demonstrated the nearly 15,000 students who are not at their assigned school or address are a clear and present danger. Union and corporate crony capitalism by rewarding folks who hire anyone but Americans. Our kids are struggling and they want us to pay corporations and unions to take imports.
This is about labor without doubt. This is payback to the businesses that supported Obamacare. Yes your bills will go up but you won’t have to worry about those pesky American citizens asking for a little more in their pocket.
I posted. Everyone should. We need millions of comments, not thousands.
I’ve been saying for weeks he will switch parties. I never fell for the idea he was going to be some kind of savior for the right. Anyone paying attention knew he was sniffing up this path all along.
No that is too easy.
The Bill already has verbiage like The Secretary shall certify that the border is secure.
All we will get from that is 100 yards of new fence and a letter from Janet Napolitano saying the border has been secured while illegals are still poring across the border.
I would have to say the best way to improve the bill, use a large shredder....
I’m beginning to think this Rubio guy is a retard. ALL of the democrat lies are on the record for all to see — every lie Dead Ted told about previous “immigration reform” bills going back to 1965. Every time they reneged on their promises is on record.
And this guy thinks it is going to be different this time?
I’m done with Rubio. I didn’t support him so he could go to Washington and collaborate with Chuckie Schumer, I supported him so he could derail everything Chuckie wants to do.
All this ‘open conversation’ period is following the footstep of someone famous. We are not there yet, but moving ever closer to that direction.
"The [immigration] bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." - Ted Kennedy, 1965 "This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this." - Ted Kennedy, 1986 "Now it is time for action. 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system." - Ted Kennedy, 2007
Damn, those are keepers. Can I steal that?
Why? It is a sham, he could care less.
Why because even if he doesn’t care enough postings and maybe it gets noticed by the media.
I don’t care that he doesn’t care.
The establishment of both parties want to ensure Big Government for the next 100 years. The GOP doesn't mind being in second place in such a system like they were between Hoover and Reagan. As long as they are big enough to get their share of the loot, they're happy. May true Americans be damned.
Secure the borders and enforce our current laws. OUR SYSTEM IS NOT BROKEN AND YOU LIE RUBIO... IT IS NOT FUNCTIONING BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT HAS ALWAYS REFUSED TO ENFORCE OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS... AT LEAST SINCE IKE. THE CURRENT LAWS CAME FROM BILLS AND PAST PROMISES JUST LIKE THE ONE YOU ARE PROMOTING TODAY RUBIO... AND THEY LIED TO US THE PAST 4 TIMES YOUR GOVERNMENT PASSED IMMIGRATION REFORM AND YOU SIR ARE LYING TODAY. ENFORCE THE LAWS OF THIS REPUBLIC... CLOSE AND SEAL OUR BORDERS AND DEPORT ILLEGALS... SAVE THE REPUBLIC OR FACE A BLEAK FUTURE FOR THIS LAND.
The standard needs to be 9 nines or better before we get comprehensive anything.
Thanks for posting this.
They will shut it down before the PR gets bad.
That is exactly what my comment was to him.
FENCES MAKE GOOD NEIGHBORS..
The Great Wall of China is 13,170 miles long...
The border’s total length is 3,169 km (1,969 mi), according to figures given by the International Boundary and Water Commission.
So why can’t it be done?
If you want to give Rubio's Senate office a call and tell them where to stuff their amnesty.
Rubio : On April 17, my colleagues and I introduced immigration legislation. It marked a first step toward achieving the strongest border security and enforcement measures in U.S. history, modernizing our legal immigration system to unleash strong economic growth and job creation, and dealing with our undocumented immigrant population in a tough, but fair way that is directly linked to achieving several security triggers.
While I believe this legislation will accomplish these things, I am also confident that an open and transparent process one that engages every senator and the American people will make it even better. I believe this kind of open debate is critical in helping the American people understand whats in the bill, what it means for you and what it means for our future.
During my time in the Senate, many of you have written to me about your concerns with our immigration system. Today, I want to share this video with you in which I outline what this legislation sets out to do. And most importantly, I want to invite you to share your thoughts and submit your ideas below, on ways we can improve it.

Rubio is a fraud.
Sounds to me like the fast-talker Rubio doesn’t have as much confidence in this legislation’s effectiveness as he and Pansy Grahamnesty would like us all to believe.
VOTER FRAUD IS THE THIRD WORLD MO The Third World cunningly figured out that massive financial benefits would derive from "immigration reform"......with Third world pressure groups exchanging votes for foreign aid (zillions of US tax dollars going straight into the pockets of corrupt third world federales).
Several year ago, a TV report concerned a US Post Office somewhere near the Mexican border that was used by illegals to send money home. It was so busy the US Govt. put in several trailers to handle the business.
IMPOVERISHED THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES LYING IN WAIT---W/ PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally sending billions back home): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside), Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.
Immigration reform is the gateway to terrorism. "Undocumented" is code for "ethnic solidarity" (Boston bombers w/ a latino accent).US politicans aiding and abetting ethnic solidarity should be investigated----determine who is giving them their marching orders----for collusion and conspiracy with foreign agents to undermine US ntl security and endanger Americans. The word is out: "undocumented" terrorists, come on down---invade the US, and bring bombs. It's open season to conduct dirty deeds....and US politicans are helping us."
Why don’t you just tell us all to learn Spanish and accept open borders, Rubio? That’s the essence of that document you’re pimping, anyway.
THE GIMME ZOMBIES---LYING-IN-WAIT The cunning Dominican govt survives on billions of our tax dollars which its illegal residents located here send back home---all of them riding the US gravy train. Neutral Dominican Republic travel brochures belittle the do-nothing Caribbean Third World satrap teemimg with poverty. The do-nothing Dominican govt provides no social safety nets for needy citizenry. The connivers work the US system---quitely and secretly lying-in-wait---to maximize its iron grip on America's power centers.
DOMINICAN MEDDLING IN US SEN MENENDEZ's IMBROGLIO IS AN OUTRAGE an unconscionable travesty against representative democracy-- that the corrupt Dominican Republic meddling in US affairs---cooking the books offshore to help Menendez stay in power.
HOW DO YOU SAY QUID PRO QUO IN SPANISH? Clearly, a deal was made. IF (BIG IF) the Dominican Republic saves Menendez's degenerate a** (and prevents the dreaded Christie appointment), Obama will write the foreign aid check w/ plenty of zeros.
DOMINICANS COLLUDING AGAINST US INTERESTS? Who is on THE NOTORIOUS DOMINICAN LIST?

A Dominican Republic native--a convicted criminal--lied his way into the NY legislature using forgery and voter fraud.
By 2008, Castro had already compiled a record of criminal arrests in two states and had lied in court about voter registration fraud inside his own Bronx apartment. And that was before the Dominican Republic native got elected to state office.
Bronx Democratic Party leaders anointed Castro in the to fill a spot on the Democratic primary ballot for the 86th Assembly District. Castro was a former staff member for State Sen. Adriano Espaillat, A Dominican Republic native, and the party bosses were eager to elect a young Dominican politician in the South Bronx, where the Dominican population was growing rapidly. "We knew Nelson had had some legal troubles before, but no one had any idea at first how bad they were," said one leader who participated in Castro's selection.
EXCERPT---Voter fraud was one of ex-Bronx Assemblyman, and Dominican Republic native, Nelson Castros tricks for gaining political power. Castro schemed to illegally register dozens of voters in his district who voted to send him to Albany. (NOTE: registering at Castro's adress means they were already register at theor own address. How many times did they vote?) Castro also forged signatures on petitions to earlier seek office as a district leader.
Those revelations are spelled out in a deal Castro signed April 2 in which federal prosecutors agreed not to prosecute those crimes in return for wearing a wire in a probe of his political colleagues.
Castro agreed to resign from the state Assembly, while Bronx prosecutors agreed to drop state perjury charges for lying about the number of people registered to vote from his one-bedroom apartment. Castro got wired and taped cooperation Assemblyman Eric Stevenson promising to introduce legislation for shady businessmen who wanted to open adult day care centers.

Just open the borders and make all Mexicans American citizens so they can collect welfare and vote. If Rubio is intent on destroyng the country just get it over with instead of killing it an ince at a time. Senator Rubio, Fidel must be so proud of you.
The ONLY reason that it “can’t be done” is that those in DC do NOT WANT IT DONE. That is all.
For the large part, the longer termed Republicans (e.g., Senators) supremely enjoy their status; they enjoy the power (even that second-tier power that Obama and the liberals MUST give them to keep their sheepish appeasement); and they covet the parties, the galas and the Sunday interviews on TV and favorable print stories about them.
To be a conservative there puts them in the personna non grata on all that. They become DC pariahs. They’d rather appease and equivocate and then go back to their districts and outright effing lie and dissemble. They structure their opposition to the administration and liberals so they can vote FOR some amendment that doesn’t matter and vote against a later bill, so they can go back home and lie about one or the other - the kicker being the outcome, usually against conservatives by the vote they overlook when talking back home. Never a more unctuous group of lying bastards lived, my two Georgia Senators among them.
As for the Congressmen? Well, they have a much better record, but they are so hamstrung by long, long term appeasing Congressmen who attain inordinate power that they are blocked from doing anyhing - most of the time. Compounding matters is that the voters of the districts that keep re-electing these tyrants want seniority for their Congressman more than they want to fix this country.
