GOP Sen. Rubio says deportation leniency is 'welcome news'
The Hill ^ | 06/15/12 01:07 PM ET | Mike Lillis

Posted on 06/15/2012 11:02:07 AM PDT by BradtotheBone

A GOP senator on the short list to be Mitt Romney's running mate is applauding President Obama's move to forgo deportations for some illegal immigrants.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said the more lenient policy is "welcome news" for those immigrants who will benefit, though he was quick to knock the administration for acting unilaterally.

“Today’s announcement will be welcome news for many of these kids desperate for an answer, but it is a short term answer to a long term problem," the Cuban-American Rubio said in a statement. "And by once again ignoring the Constitution and going around Congress, this short term policy will make it harder to find a balanced and responsible long term one.”

Rubio's comments are a stark contrast to those coming from other Republicans, who are blasting the new rules as a threat to U.S. jobs and possibly illegal.

Rubio's remarks also further complicate the position of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, who took a hard conservative stance against illegal immigrants amid the heat of the GOP primary but is now searching for ways to soften that stance in order to appeal to Hispanic voters, who will be vital in a number of swing states.

If so, proof of a one party system. Rubio also gives cover to Obama eligibility issues. The NWO, globalist, open boarders, UN agenda would continue to advance with our financing the change.

"Rubio just killed his chances at VP."

Actually, exactly the other way around. Mittens nullfies any political advantage Bobo hopes to gain unconstitutionally green-lighting illegals, by taking Rubio as VP -- and then Rubio goes around to the Hispanic barrios and says, 'You want to get things done?! Vote this mayate out.'

And then of course there's this...

"Florida Sen.-elect Marco Rubio announced his top staff, which included three former Romney campaign hands. Sally Canfield, who served as Romney's policy adviser, will be Rubio's legislative director and chief policy adviser; Joe Pounder, who was in charge of rapid response for Romney, will be Rubio's communications director; and Alex Burgos, who directed specialty media for Romney, will serve as director of media affairs for Rubio." -- RCP/Time, Jan. 4, 2011"

I guess if your parents gave you a car, which they, (unbeknownst to you), have stolen, then you get to keep the car since you need it to get to work or the grocery store, etc.

Okay...the content of the article is about Rubio ripping Obama’s actions as illegal and counterproductive, and the headline writer wrote it as though he was endorsing what Obama did. And apparently many on this thread read only the headline...

So Rubio himself calls it unconstitutional / illegal, and the author of the piece follows it up by saying it contrasts with other Republicans who called it illegal?

I hate saying NWO because it sounds so tinfoil, but the globalist agenda seems to be quite pervasive.

It was tinfoil forty years ago when you read about it but didn't see any evidence to support it.

It's no longer tinfoil when the evidence is more than abundant.

I’m not sure that any of you read the original quote. Rubio said it was “welcome news” to those kids; not to Americans, Republicans, or him.

Understanding Rubio's history about immigration reform and amnesty, and that he is formulating the Republican plan for the "new Dream Act," I don't have much doubt that it is an inclusive statement where he supports 'those kid's' viewpoint by surreptitiously speaking about himself in the third person.

It doesn't contradict itself, it correctly senses the nuanced in Rubio's comments and takes into consideration his stated position on the issue.

I found his criticism of Obama's illegal methods half hearted, personally.

From the Constitution Party Platform (available at http://www.constitutionparty.com/party_platform.php)

Immigration:

US Constitution, Article 4, Section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; James Madison: “When we are considering the advantages that may result from an easy mode of naturalization, we ought also to consider the cautions necessary to guard against abuses … aliens might acquire the right of citizenship, and return to the country from which they came, and evade the laws intended to encourage the commerce and industry of the real citizens and inhabitants of America, enjoying at the same time all the advantages of citizens…”
We affirm the integrity of the international borders of these United States and the Constitutional authority and duty of the federal government to guard and to protect those borders, including the regulation of the numbers and of the qualifications of immigrants into the country.

Each year approximately one million legal immigrants and almost as many illegal aliens enter these United States. These immigrants - including illegal aliens - have been made eligible for various kinds of public assistance, including housing, education, Social Security, and legal services. This unconstitutional drain on the federal Treasury is having a severe and adverse impact on our economy, increasing the cost of government at federal, state, and local levels, adding to the tax burden, and stressing the fabric of society. The mass importation of people with low standards of living threatens the wage structure of the American worker and the labor balance in our country.

We oppose the abuse of the H-1B and L-1 visa provisions of the immigration act which are displacing American workers with foreign.

We favor a moratorium on immigration to these United States, except in extreme hardship cases or in other individual special circumstances, until the availability of all federal subsidies and assistance be discontinued, and proper security procedures have been instituted to protect against terrorist infiltration.

We also insist that every individual group and/or private agency which requests the admission of an immigrant to the U.S, on whatever basis, be required to commit legally to provide housing and sustenance for such immigrants, bear full responsibility for the economic independence of the immigrants, and post appropriate bonds to seal such covenants.

The Constitution Party demands that the federal government restore immigration policies based on the practice that potential immigrants will be disqualified from admission to the U.S. if, on the grounds of health, criminality, morals, or financial dependence, they would impose an improper burden on these United States, any state, or any citizen of these United States.

We oppose the provision of welfare subsidies and other taxpayer-supported benefits to illegal aliens, and reject the practice of bestowing U.S. citizenship on children born to illegal alien parents while in this country.

We oppose any extension of amnesty to illegal aliens. We call for the use of U.S. troops to protect the states against invasion.

We oppose bilingual ballots. We insist that those who wish to take part in the electoral process and governance of this nation be required to read and comprehend basic English as a precondition of citizenship. We support English as the official language for all governmental business by these United States.

For the Goode of the Country...

Choose Goode over Evil ...

Goode for You, America ...

What a perfect name for a political campaign ...

Re: “The bigger issue...[is usurpation]...

Strongly disagree.

Do you really not understand the population issue?

New immigrant citizens vote 80% for the Demo Party.

In the near future the Democrats won’t have to usurp ANYTHING.

They will mandate their will with PERMANENT majorities in Congress and the White House.

I completely agree. But the population issue is merely a tactic in the attempt to overthrow this nation. Obama's utter disregard of the rule of law and the separation of powers is also part of it.

But screaming about this issue, as though the biggest problem is a bunch of Mexicans taking low wage jobs, is to fail to make the larger point. The republic is under attack. I can imagine David Axelrod cackling in some strategy office because the right, in a thinly veiled racism, is bellowing about Mexican children getting amnesty while missing the point that precedent upon precedent for ignoring due process is being established.

Thanks for the link to Rubio’s UN, World Bank, IMF speech.

I was already unnerved by Rubio’s “Dream Act” support.

This speech, plus Rubio’s weasel worded support for Obama’s amnesty, absolutely breaks it for me.

Have you read Romney's response to Obama’s amnesty?

Almost as shocking as Rubio’s response.

I appreciate your thoughtful response, but still disagree.

The Constitution has been under assault for at least a hundred years.

In my lifetime, we've had Roe v. Wade in the 70’s, Civil Rights decisions in the 60’s that paved the way for Affirmative Action and Forced Busing, and the Warren Court in the 1950’s.

The ONLY way to prevent a new avalanche of Hard Left judges is to elect Conservatives at every level of government.

Without a popular majority, that is not going to happen.

I'm not concerned about Mexicans taking jobs.

I'm concerned about Texas, where Mexican-Americans will be voting Democrats into the Senate and White House within ten years.

When that day comes, American Conservatism will die.

Romney's statement on Obama’s Amnesty is below...

He agrees with Rubio.

He uses Rubio’s language.

Romney wants a “long term” solution, which is nothing but political code for “Amnesty Light.”

Romney's Statement:

“I believe the status of young people who come here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered, and should be solved on a long term basis so they know what their future would be in this country,” Romney said after a campaign stop in Milford, New Hampshire.

“I think the action that the president took today makes it more difficult to reach that long term solution because an executive order is, of course, a short term matter and can be reversed by subsequent presidents,” Romney said.

“I would like to seek legislation that deals with this issue and I happen to agree with Marco Rubio as he looked at, considered this issue, he said that this is an important matter that we have to find a long term solution,” Romney said.

I’m not so sure that we disagree on that much my FRiend. At least not on the big picture problem. Yes, the Constitution has been under attack for at least a hundred years. And, since I have reached the ripe old age of 60, I have also seen all the whittling away at the Founder’s dream firsthand. We both agree that the Republic is under attack.

It is true that the election of genuine conservatives is the best way to resolve the problems. But I have come to the conclusion that it is not the Hispanic vote that makes the difference. Yes, that is a hard core belief of the left, echoed with fear by the right. And clearly those numbers can cause a tipping point. But the real problem with the electorate lies in the middle.

The middle, the so-called moderates or even independents, have tacked left for decades. We have allowed the press to paint the right as stupid, racist, xenophobic killjoys who don’t have one whit of concern for their fellow man as they go about each day simply looking for ways to maximize their personal wealth, regardless of the cost to others. The left on the other hand is the domain of everyman, of concern for their fellow man, they care and they share. And supposedly they stand foursquare against greed and the evil rich.

Of course those caricatures are patently false, but the moderates (and many independents) lean left in their concern with being perceived as stupid and inhumane yahoos. As a result, even the Republicans repeatedly wind up with candidates who are inarticulate spokesmen for the morality of liberty,, personal initiative and free enterprise. Even those who run to the right in the primaries come up short as the supposedly moderate electorate and the inside-the-beltway party leadership continue to believe that drawing real contrasts between the right and left is lethal in the general election. So we get candidates who don’t draw the distinctions in a compelling way, because it is not in their DNA. Romney, Dole, Ford, even the Bushes to a degree.

But from the right, when someone like Marco Rubio steps up and argues that leniency on this specific aspect of the immigration issue is a good thing he is attacked as a “traitor” (literally, see post #9). He is labelled a RINO despite the fact that he has a 100%, perfect rating from the American Conservative Union. Those attacks, exemplified by so many comments on this thread, give ample fodder to those who would label the right as racially motivated. It is utterly absurd and completely impractical to suggest that someone is a traitor because they don’t see children as “foreign invaders.” Children who came here at the will of their parents and who, in many cases, have never known any other culture other than American.

I am not so naive as to believe that all children of illegal aliens are honor students who merely want their shot at the American dream. Of course that isn’t true. But I do know that attacking Rubio and others on this part of the immigration issue alienates many hardworking, conservative, LEGAL, Americans of Mexican descent. It plays into the strategy of those who want to paint the right as without compassion. It misses the more important point that Obama and his masters and minions are operating as if this nation were already under a dictatorship.

And it postpones the day when we can see the realization of Ronald Reagan’s dictum, “Latinos are Republican. They just don’t know it yet.”

The cheap labor loving GOP (which includes Romney and Rubio) don’t seem to care that eventually Texas will turn blue just like California did. And without Texas, there’s no electoral math to ever put a Republican in the WH again. My disgust at Obama is normal. I’m more appalled at Romney and Rubio. This move just may have cost Romney the election.

What Rubio should have said:

Obumbi has just crowned himself Dictator and thus made himself a legal target for capture by our Military Officiers who have pledged ....”“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;” and if the POTUS is a domestic enemy, then he is the enemy.

Presidential Oath of Office
I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

odumbi has broken his oath. All Military Officers should Arrest him ASAP.

Rubio is throwing a great opportunity away. An opportunity to be a great American Leader and instead grasping to the chance of being a great politician

Rubio vete para el carajo, cobarde.

This “leniency” is, and has been S.O.P. for a long time and the extremes on this forum need to own it and celebrate it, not play the hate-filled fools for Obama. We simply cannot create an underclass of people in the U.S.

In Georgia we tried using parolee and unemployed labor instead of Mexicans (who fled the state after harsh rules were passed). Guess what, homey don’t play picking’ crops and millions of $ rotted in the fields.

We are extremely fortunate to have ernest, hardworking Christian Latinos instead of Muslims as our imported labor, and they are grateful for the noblesse oblige of English masters instead of cruel Spaniards.
