Rubio Stares Down the Right Over 'Undocumented Democrats'

National JournalBy Tim Alberta | National Journal – 5 hrs ago

Marco Rubio was not amused.

The senator from Florida had listened patiently as a panel of hand-picked conservatives, lined up across a long table at the front of the room, took turns speaking about the prospects of immigration reform. When discussion finally opened to the anxious, overflowing crowd of lawmakers at the Republican Study Committee's immigration summit, several were quick to critique their pro-reform colleagues – Rubio the headliner among them.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., argued they should be discussing a report by the Heritage Foundation's Robert Rector on the costs of amnesty. Rep. Scott Garrett, R-N.J., raised concerns about implementing an e-Verify system. But it was Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, who got under Rubio’s skin.

Referencing a Jay Leno one-liner, Burgess questioned fellow conservatives about the wisdom of giving citizenship to "11 million undocumented Democrats." Laughter, some of it nervous, spread throughout the room. But not everyone found Burgess' crack funny. According to several people who attended the June 5th gathering, Rubio glared at Burgess.

America has the most open immigration policies of any country in the entire globe.

Bar none.

Yet Rubio backs, MORE LENIENT policies, as we shed jobs from the American economy?

Rubio no. Just no.

Yeah, I bet he did.

As soon as he began being a pimp for this ridicules law, I fired off an email to him citing in non confrontational terms why I disagreed 100% on his backpeddling on the border issue. Not a peep in response. Usually I get back 2 or 3 messages, not this time. I bet every one of those anti amnesty e mails got tossed especially those like mine which said don’t come calling for any more money.

Slow path to progress for U.S. immigrants: 43% on welfare after 20 years

The study, which covers all immigrants, legal and illegal, and their U.S.-born children younger than 18, found that immigrants tend to make economic progress by most measures the longer they live in the U.S. but lag well behind native-born Americans on factors such as poverty, health insurance coverage and homeownership.

The study, based on 2010 and 2011 census data, found that 43 percent of immigrants who have been in the U.S. at least 20 years were using welfare benefits, a rate that is nearly twice as high as native-born Americans and nearly 50 percent higher than recent immigrants.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/aug/8/slow-path-to-progress-for-us-immigrants/

so more amnesty from republicans helps our country how again?

This account, confirmed by multiple members and staffers, sheds light on what is perhaps the most politically obvious — and perpetually underplayed — conservative argument against providing citizenship to the nation's illegal immigrants. With all the noise surrounding the debate over policy specifics — security measures, enforcement triggers, future flow, interior oversight — there is still an underlying political argument whispered among some of Congress's most conservative members: After 71 percent of Hispanics voted for President Obama in 2012, why should Republicans add millions more to the voting rolls?”

My point too.

Plus if they make these illegals full US citizens (with MORE rights than us because they are a official 'minority') then what does that it say about what they think of us?

Rubio is playing out a pre-written script that Obama gave him, his mission is to get this bill to Obama's desk.

Hey Rubio how bout fairness to all the Americans born here that are looking for work? Instead of bringing in cheap labor let real Americans find work.

Rubio is a scumbag.

Without an effective conservative opposition, we have no voice. A third party seems to be the only way to go at this time. Maybe it could gather up enough conservatives and angry Republicans to make a difference.

While I admire Rubio for taking on a tough issue (not the toughest and most cruical IMO), I’d like to ask him...

When the executive branch picks and chooses which laws to enforce, and which laws to ignore, what good are laws, and why the belief that new laws will ever be enforced?

Well, 30 million is a start. What with IRS giving freely tax credits for all the related children still in Latin America, by Amnesty we issue a call for everyone in all of Latin America who is not a politician or a banker to swarm to the USA. The understood offer is for eventual USA citizenship and huge IRS “refunds” for all of Latin America, and eventually anyone else in the world. I suppose this would mark the transition from Republic to Empire. Rome did it, sucked people from all the conquered territories to come to Rome and be subsidized.

The Stupid Psrty has become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party. I think those lovingly termed RINOs are aware of the situation and are comfortable with it. They do not understand that they will be the first “defendants” in the inevitable show trials.

It appears that Rubio has become the Republican Obama regarding the Limbaugh Theorem, which states that Obama is not associated with his policies. “Oh, Rubio is such a nice guy, novice, being played by Chuck Schumer, the one with the reptilian smile. I disagree with his support of the amnesty bill, but I like him; he’s charismatic.”

I do not support any program, idea, or philosophy that addresses the millions of illegal invaders into my country, in any other frame of mind than G. T. F. O., even at bayonet point, if necessary.

Over-stayed student visa, ig. Iranians before the downfall of the Shah. Corporate-sponsored H1b visas over-stayed, robbing Americans of work opportunities, and creating anchor babies, like Piyush ‘Bobby’ Jindal.

Any nationality that is here illegally needs to go.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION SOLUTION
1. lock down the borders
2. deport illegals as they appear
3. enforce existing laws
4. pass new laws and enforce them as needed

Unemployment’s high - people can’t find work - and Rubio wants to bring in an extra 11 million people yearning to take jobs and milk the system. Yeah, we’re impressed elites want a servant class in the US...

What has Rubio actually done in life other than run his mouth?

Why should anyone listen to anything he has to say?

"Senator" carries the power and importance, but the "Rubio" part? What does the "Rubio" part do other than use the "Senator" part against the country he claims as his?

He's working for his people, but with him, that means he's also working against the rest of US.

(What did they pay you Rush? Or did they just fool the old fool with a better fool?)

THIS SUCKER SEES REFORM AS A WAR OF "US" AGAINST "THEM"

AN OMINOUS HARBINGER OF THINGS TO COME Rubio's disdain and utter contempt for America----for conservatism----is intolerable.

Rubio is in league w/ the corrupt Third World's nefarious plans to undermine US ntl security and our freedoms.

It's pretty simple - the banksters want a North American Union and the Amero to help them compete with Asia's wage levels. And they are exerting incredible pressure on the political classes to make it happen.

Rubio can tap dance all he wants and glare at his colleagues all he wants, but the issues are not about anything he says they are.

.....or.....

(2) Jeb Bush saying latinos are superior to Americans b/c they are more "fertile?"
