Marco Rubio talks immigration at Google (Citizenship for Illegals)
Politico ^ | March 10, 2014 | Burgess Everett

Posted on 03/11/2014 6:34:24 AM PDT by C19fan

Marco Rubio came to Google’s D.C. headquarters to talk about the economy — not immigration. But when asked, he was certainly prepared to address the subject. During a question and answer session, Rubio was pointedly asked by CNSNews whether “putting illegal aliens on a path to citizenship” would help economic growth.

“That’s just a fundamental decision the country will have to make. If the country decides they are prepared to incorporate 8 or 9 million people that violated our laws, the next question will be: ‘Are you prepared to have 8 or 9 million people living among you that can live here permanently for the rest of their lives but never become citizens?’ Rubio said in his five-minute long answer of continued disagreement between the House and Senate on immigration reform.

Rubio doing is a favor reminding us why any conservative who supports him for POTUS is a fool. All the other stuff he talks about is a "SQUIRREL!!" operation.

Nicely put. Rubio never ceases his flimflam antics trying to mask his amnesty driven soul and beliefs.

I will NEVER support or be fooled by this creature again.

When are we going to have people in government who do stuff that helps citizens?

That is the RED HERRING of the 21st. Century.

Mark Levin is right. The courts will NEVER allow these people to remain in eternal second-class status. They'll sue, claiming they are being picked on, and the courts will award them full citizenship, long after anybody's vote will be remembered.

Someone should explain this to Rubio.
Google doesn’t hire illegals or Hispanics.
He would know this if he knew ANYTHING about Computer Science.

I’ve never figured out why criminal behavior should be rewarded with citizenship. I prefer the option of making it expensive to employ illegals, and unpleasant with a high probability of lots of prison time to commit crimes here, so that there is no reason to stay here illegally.

We should have immigration laws, and those laws should be enforced vigorously. If we want more immigrants (and I do if they are educated and hard-working), that should be accomplished through improvements to our legal immigration system, not through excusing criminal behavior.

i knew it! yesterday someone posted an article that highlighted an exchanged between Hannity and Coulter... Hannity said that Rubio had changed his mind on amnesty... and i thought, "WHAT??? WHEN???"

i knew he had not changed his mind... how could he just change his mind on something for which he had recently fought so hard?

However we handle the legal status of people who came here in violation of the law, who stayed here in violation of the law and who work here in violation of the law, why do we owe them more than humanitarian consideration?

We would be denigrating the value of citizenship and would be making a GRAVE moral mistake by granting any previously illegal alien the right to vote.

He certainly does dance around a touchy subject pretty well.
Like it or not he is miles better than having Charlie crist in the senate.

Dumb question, but why must it always be about a path to "citizenship"? Why can't these people who claim to care about illegals talk about a path to "legal residency" first? It would solve all of the so-called "problems" they claim we need to address -- all of the problems except for their desire to register more Democrat voters. But that's not what this is about, is it?

Which they receive. The media tries to make it sound like those of us standing up for law and order are physically abusing these people. Absolutely NO ONE wants bad things to happen to them. Feed them, give them a hot shower, and send them home. Just as all of our European "allies" who are constantly lecturing us on this issue ROUTINELY do.

Rubio suffers from the not-so-rare GERALDO RIVERA SYNDROME.

Hispanics afflicted with the ailment may sound rational at times, but when the issue of amnesty arises they forget they are Americans and lose their ability to think rationally.

Now it is “only” 8 or 9 million instead of the 11 million they have been using since the mid 1980’s....
It is at least 20 million plus they will bring in 5 of their family members.

Marco Rubio is right. If we grant legal status to the illegal aliens, then granting them citizenship will absolutely be the next step. That is why we cannot compromise on this issue at all. Neither the president, the Democrats, or our own GOP leaders have any credibility on this matter at all. They want full amnesty including citizenship.

Thank you, Marco Rubio, for once again revealing you have zero intention of backing down on this issue. You continue to put the desires of those 8 or 9 (more likely 30+) million illegal aliens ahead of my right as an American to live in a country free from foreign invasion. Run for president? May you soon booted from office!

If we are going to grant citizenship priviledges to illegal aliens who have committed multiple felonies, then clearly it would be unconstitutional to strip American Citizen felons of their right to vote.

Also if we are going to grant amnesty to all the illegal aliens who used fake documents and stolen identity and not send them to prison, then we have to release all the American Citizen felons who committed document fraud and tax evasion.

At one time I actually thought that Marco Rubio had a brain. Obviously he is more of a racist than he is an American.

HE needs a tea party challenge in the next election.

But but but ...

According to Hannity, Rubio has reformed:

The above is from an interview between Hannity and Coulter, when the topic changed to Rubio.

Sorry, Hannity, but that leopard hasn't changed its spots and never will.

That is the RED HERRING of the 21st. Century.

The closer they get to passing amnesty, the lesser the number gets. Now it is 8 or 9 million.

In reality, it more like 40 to 50 million.

Someone like Ted Cruz needs to step up and offer an amendment REQUIRING a Census arriving at an ABSOLUTE NUMBER of illegals before any amnesty would become effective.

Would kill the whole thing quicker than a skunk getting loose on the Senate floor.

He talks about 7’2 NBA players.

What about all the chubby Hispanic Republican advisors. Don’t we have enough of them Rubio?
