Skip to comments.Marco Rubio: The Immigration Reform Opportunity
Posted on 05/03/2013 9:17:43 AM PDT by EveningStar
Next week, the Senate will begin making changes to and, hopefully, improve the immigration-reform legislation I introduced with several colleagues last month. This part of the process is a chance to fix America's broken immigration system and end today's de facto amnesty for those who live here illegally. It will also show that Washington can work when leaders listen to the American people and invoke their wisdom in debates and legislative work.
In January, I outlined my principles for conservative immigration reform in these pagesprinciples that guided the drafting of this legislation. These include securing the borders; requiring all employers to verify their workers' eligibility and severely penalizing them if they hire illegal immigrants; cracking down on legal immigrants who overstay visas; and modernizing the legal immigration system to meet America's 21st-century economic needs for both highly skilled talent and guest workers to fill labor shortages.

Allow me to be the first to say:
Rubio pedals lies. In fact, like all “comprehensive” bills, the Amnesty bill is designed to conceal lies in hundred of pagers of near-inpenetrable lawyerese.
Borders are NOT going secured. They’re just going to form a commission or something like that to “study” border security.
Gang members and illegal alien drunk drivers are not going to be deported.
Illegals will have access to welfare as soon as they have a legal status.
BTW: Discussion of this bill has ALREADY caused illegal immigration to surge.
The bill needs to go to Hell, and so does Rubio and the “Gang of Eight.”
Sigh..fool me once, shame on you...fool me twice.....
>> And for those who believe the road ahead for illegal immigrants is too generous or lenient, Congress will have a chance to make it tougher
A *chance*, huh Marco?
About a snowball’s chance in hell, yes?
Yet all of the other BAD stuff will be GUARANTEED, right away.
Go to hell, Marco Rubio. You haven’t been here long enough nor have you given any damn thing of yourself, to have the arrogance and audacity to ruin this country by handing it to *your* race to loot.
Party like it’s 1986.
He’s STILL Lying!
“chance to fix America’s broken immigration system and end today’s de facto amnesty for those who live here illegally.”
All ya gotta do is enforce the law, build the fence mandated by LAW!!!
And yes, Marco, even though Limbaugh says it’s not, IT IS AMNESTY! Stop peeing down our leg and telling us it’s rainin’!
EVERYONE!!! Do you see how he does this????
“In January, I outlined my principles for conservative immigration reform in these pagesprinciples that guided the drafting of this legislation. These include securing the borders; requiring all employers to verify their workers’ eligibility and severely penalizing them if they hire illegal immigrants;”
He doesn’t even say those ‘principles’ are in the bill, because they ARE NOT!...they ‘guided’ him.
He’s a lawyer! Let him go be an immigration lawyer like his chief of staff Cesar Conda!
WHO is Cesar Conda? (Ya better find out!)
Rush has spent a lot of time defending Rubio over this bill.
Rubio just excluded himself from further consideration.
I don’t get it. We see before our eyes our own Federales not following the laws on the books to protect our borders and toss out the illegals. Why would be expect them to act any differently under some adjusted set of laws? Is he stupid, or does he think we are?
FUMR! We are at war with the God-hating, constitution-hating, liberty-hating, America-hating Marxist/communist/socialist left that are trying to destroy our country and here are you and McCain stabbing us in the back working WITH the ENEMY!! TRAITOR!
I guess its too much of a stretch for Marco to think of ending de factor amnesty by getting them all to self deport. No we just have to let them all stay.
Rubio is a conservative imposter pure and simple....RINO.
He should take his amnesty plan and shove where the sun don’t shine!
We have an immigration problem because the last 4 presidents have not seen fit to enforce the existing laws.
Now they want to put in new laws that nobody will enforce but will legalize all the lawbreakers.
The Republicans have turned a blind eye to appease their Corporate donors and the Democrats have turned a blind eye because they need the votes from these people. The cemetaries don't provide a renewable source of phantom voters.
Sorry, but RUBIO is now an official RINO and is gaining rapidly on Chris Christy’s bid to complete the transition to complete scumbag liberal.
NO SALE! No matter how many news programs you show up on and make your fast-talking spiel.
“All the reform in the world will not reform the system if nobody is willing to ENFORCE THE LAW.”
If we could just get these ninnies to listen to even a democrat!
“The credibility of immigration policy can be measured by a simple yardstick: people who should get in, do get in; people who should not get in are kept out; and people who are judged deportable are required to leave.” Barbara Jordan
marco rubio: THE TRAITOR WITHIN!
Booo Booo get off the stage Rube.
