Posted on 06/18/2013 1:13:54 PM PDT by Carbonsteel
Senators on Tuesday rejected building the 700 miles of double-tier border fencing Congress authorized just seven years ago, with a majority of the Senate saying they didnt want to delay granting illegal immigrants legal status while the fence was being built.
The 54-39 vote to reject the fence shows the core of the immigration deal is holding. The vote broke mostly along party lines, though five Republicans, including Sen. Marco Rubio and the rest of the bills authors, voted against the fence, and two Democrats voted for it.

If these sellouts want to give this nation to the Mexicans, we the people will have to stand by and watch because the politician's in Washington are dead set on doing nothing but that and everything else going on right now is just a smokescreen.
No, I can’t believe that. LOL...
Who could have seen this coming?
We’ll see if CW-II turns out to be cheaper than that fence...senate.
The U.S. Senate - the world’s most repulsive, septic, and loathsome (un)deliberative body.
Critters all, and destined to be treated as such.
They will not be happy until we have so many terrorists here that daily murderous attacks can be used to ram through the most repressive laws the world has ever seen.
Not a surprise, plus even if it passed it would never happen
Really sucks watching America swirl down the drain.
Someone help me with the history, here. When did the Dems control of Congress? (Not a rhetorical question, wondering if this story is a before or after thing).
Give all the Gubbermint border land to private citizens, they’ll have it secured in a week!
Rubio has sealed his fate. He has gone all-in for the undocumented Democrats.
A minefield is more cost effective.
Nope,an open southern border is the Rat Party’s ticket to perpetual power.
It happened when the Republicans sold their souls to the progressives.
When Bonehead was elected speaker. 2010.
shocker. secure the border, nope. amnesty, yep.
why doesn’ t someone just say we will enat the exact same immigration laws that mexico’s constitution has, and the same laws for foreigners that mexico has. we will treat them exactly how they treat foreigners. total reciprocity.
i would be for that.
Our politicians have sold us out. They have cheapened the value of American citizenship.
If they lived along the border and their kids had to attend public schools in the area, you better believe that they would build a fence.
marco rubio want no border security. shocker. who could have seen this coming from our secure-the-border-first marco rubio?
How could it have been any other way?
They have been traitors to the Constitution
and the American people in EVERY MOVE THEY MAKE.
How could it have been any other way?
Rubio belongs in jail.
See, now this is why it’s important for us to elect lesser evils because Dems are much worse. /s
And people wonder why I harp on this crap...
So they’ve gone on record as being liars, what a surprise. It’s not like anyone believed they ever actually build the barrier unless they could figure out how to make it cost ten times more and put parts of it in their favorite states rather than along the border.
I’d have to think about that. At the very least, he belongs back home. He’s unfit to hold that office.
This is a black and white issue.
Should our nation exist in it’s present configuration or not?
This is a vote to turn it into a Mexican state or not.
So much for securing the border.
Why of course they would reject it...vaporize the place.
Requescant in pace Rubio’s Presidential Chances.
He’s finished as a GOP candidate in 2016 - finished.
EACH and EVERY ONE of the damn elitist bastards who voted this down need to be flushed out of office.
We don’t want him back.
Nah, be careful what you say. I know our emotions run high, but we shouldn’t express those types of thoughts. Someone will take it serious.
Send him out here. What’s one more jackass in California going to hurt?
” EACH and EVERY ONE of the damn elitist bastards who voted this down need to be flushed out of office.”
If amnesty passes, it is too late to matter.
Doesn’t much matter now. What’s one more dump on the Constitution? Not like anyone with power to change any of it cares enough to.
” This is a vote to turn it into a Mexican state or not.”
A 3rd world hell hole for ALL impoverished people.
Yep. Nationally anyway.
Hey Marco...read my tagline you lying POS!
Amnesty will finish us off. At that juncture, only a civil war could reverse things.
Rubio will be well paid for the rest of his life.
Yes, most U. S. Citizens included.
That bowl is too clean, it needs to be like a rest area bowl with stains and such.
I still say we’re at that point even without it.
Sure makes you wonder alright...
Your wish is our command. Now if I could just get this teleporter to work.
Wait, I thought we were talking about Rubio, not Obambi.
His attempts to rationalize Rubio's votes are painful to listen to.
I agree with you. I do think if amnesty gets rammed down our throats(against the will of the majority), we will see pretty quickly just how much evil Americans will tolerate.
Just gets worse and worse, doesn’t it? The wonderful immigration advocates are angry about any attempt to control the border.
Soon the pos criminals from other countries will be your fellow citizens only with more rights than you, as protected minorities.
Rubio has promised the demopub machine a vast swath of predictable and compliant government dependents. And all it requires is the death of the nation. Almost a no-brainer for them.
” Listening to Hannity talk about these votes now.
His attempts to rationalize Rubio’s votes are painful to listen to. “
I quit listening to Hannity over 10 years ago.
