Marco Rubio: In immigration reform, legalization comes first — ‘It is not conditional’
washington examiner ^ | 6-10-13 | byron york

Posted on 06/10/2013 11:57:02 AM PDT by TurboZamboni

In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements.

“Let’s be clear,” Rubio said. “Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization...

“Let’s be clear,” Rubio said. “Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence.”

Effin' traitor. Go back to Cuba.

If they secure the borders first, all of the Mexican Nationals won't be able to get into the country to take their swings at the BIG PINATA.

Marco Rubio on immigration: "First and foremost, border security" (just two short years ago)

President Barack Obama today cited one of Marco Rubio's predecessors, Mel Martinez, as a Republican supporter of immigration reform, but Rubio told reporters before Obama's immigration speech today that border security is the priority.

"First and foremost we have to secure the border, we have to secure the workplace," said Rubio. "We can't move on to the modernization of our legal immigration system until both the border and the workplace are secure, through both E-Verify and real security at both the Canadian and the Mexican borders. We've got to accomplish that first before we can do any modernization, which is needed."

I think it was Milton Friedman who said that you can have open borders, or you can have a welfare state. You can’t have both.

A number of welfare state countries in Europe are realizing this and are trying to limit immigration so that their welfare state doesn’t go bankrupt too quickly.

There went any remaining benefit of the doubt, assuming anyone was still naive enough to still be holding out. If legalization comes first, then how is it not “amnesty”? Once they have legal status, here come the lawsuits, and here come the freebies, to the extent they don’t already get them. Rubio, go sit in the corner, and try on the conical hat.

Actually the classic is never to admit that it’s amnesty. This is different. He’s admitting up front what the rest of us have known all along.

McCain, Palin, they never admitted that it was amnesty. This guy is. The whole lot of them aren’t worth ——.

He might have just destined this “reform” to failure. Lots of US Senators can’t sell it to the voters if it isn’t enforcement first.

Yeah, his F&^$^&$&^*! Ad says “We must secure the border first”... THEN THIS, HE CAN GO STRAIGHT TO HELL!!!!

I want the 1986 Amnesty Bill “Enforced” First before any additional amnesty, they have failed to finish the rest of the 1986 Amnesty bill and that part they failed was enforcement and border security, so finish the conditions of the 1986 bill before even talking about any further amnesty...

Oh, now, that was for the gringos, don-cha-know...

Just like Yasser Arafat had one speech for the English-speaking reporters and one for the Arabs, so Rubio's says one thing for the gringos and the opposite for "his people".

This is why I’m always slow to jump on the praise-train once a new guy/gal pops onto the scene. Some folks take one look at these newbies, and fall madly in love with them. And then you can’t say one word to them that’s negative regarding their ‘love interest’.

It’s no different than the Leftists who fall in love with Obama and then can’t own up to their mistake.

We get so gamed by those who abuse us, from our own side of the isle.

Just as I thought. The first thing that happens is every illegal gets a get-out -of -Jail-free card and can stay forever. This will touch off a race for the border.
Flights to Mexico will be all booked with people coming from all over the world to get in for amnesty. Plus..they will throw in 1.6 million pissed off Syrians just for good measure.
If we can’t kill it in the SEnate then get prepared to occupy the offices of your local Congress Critter to kill it in the house.

A politician can pretend TEA Party attitudes and then also throw in “immigration reform” (instead of enforcement). If he gets his way on open borders, he’ll never face serious challenge for not voting for actual TEA Party issues.
