Romney "agrees" with Rubio. Wants "long term" solution. Full statement in Comments.

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.
This is a long term solution Mr. Romney.
YOU aren’t about to reverse this Executive Order and you friggin know it.
There is a third way.
The same way we got rid of British rule.
Exactly - truth will out, even at 2:30 in the morning. Don’t know how you can do that at that time but you have clearly drawn the correct leadership paradigm that we all knew was missing in the Mittster.
So the whole affair is (as usual) all about buying votes AND BY-PASSING CONGRESS.
Here's the problem....Reagan did it, too.
Everyone of Obama's executive orders need to be obliterated.
He is backing up Rubio, wonder if that is an indication of his VP choice. Agree, he should of come out swinging, backing up the constitutions.
I suggest a simple solution: Romney should endorse the non-deportation of this carefully defined class upon its being ratified by Congress and subject to these youths serving at least two full years active duty service in the military with no provisions for community service opt outs. Is this not essentially the law anyway?
No it doesn't. A law is made by our Congress.
Actually, the case you are referring to is Plyler v. Doe, a case where the Supreme Court threw out a Texas law prohibiting illegals from attending public schools.
There is no law that compels us to hand over cash to foreign criminals. Only a judicial decision - in other words, and act of Tyranny by men who have no authority to make laws.
The brave new conservative Mitt takes a stand.
To quote Bob Dylan...
Democracy don’t rule this world
You better get that through your head
This world is ruled by violence
But I guess that’s better left unsaid
The problem is that the whole country is filled to the brim with illegals and yes some through no fault of there owm
Mitt could have said that he aims to rid America of all illegals, and we would have all cheered but we both know that even if he did, there would be riots in the streets.
There is a cancer in this country called social equal-ism and as I type this, it is stronger than any written law.
Mitt was right in what he said. Along term solution is better than a half baked one OR no solution at all.
” This should be called what it is. Obama ruling by dictatorial fiat.”
Yes. This changes the argument. It neither agree or disagree, it just focus’s on thw abuse of power
Two typos in this short post. General, either you cut and pasted this from somewhere, errors intact, or it’s time for bed. Regards.
If the citizens of this Republic still took the Constitution seriously, Obama would be impeached for his decision to unilaterally grant amnesty to certain illegal aliens. Article 1, Sec. 8 of the Constitution, which enumerates the power of Congress, states that "Congress shall have the Power To... establish an [sic] uniform Rule of Naturalization." Congress has passed numerous laws pertaining to immigration and naturalization, including laws requiring the deportation of illegals.
a short term matter and can be reversed by subsequent presidents, Romney said.
I think he said it without really saying it. No, I do not think Romney should come out strong on this. 0bama is using it to instigate people. I happen to think Romney handled this perfectly for the day. We don’t want to hand 0bama a reason to declare his Martial Law edict.
0bama just dropped a hot brick. If you think it was for votes...you are wrong. 0bama is looking to instigate a crisis. The end here is not votes in November.
Never, ever forget that first and foremost 0bama is a community agitator.
This will not help Obama.
First, many hispanics will see it for what it is —— a political move.
Second, other hispanics, who are out of work, will be just a furious as any other citizen who is out of work.
Essentially, President Obama is saying he will not enforce immigration laws.
The question that needs to be asked is whether companies that hire these non-citizens be punished?
“Muhnuhmunuh di-diii dididi. Muhnuhmuhnuh di-didi-di.”
What a real leader would say:
“I will deport as many illegal aliens as possible, and I will put an absolute and final end to any discussion of amnesty by passing a law which forever prohibits it. If you are here illegally, you have less than five months to go home on your own before we throw you out in chains. If you employ illegal aliens, we will pursue and punish you with the same righteous fury.
Oh, and construction of a fence, a real fence with electrified barbed wire and sharks with lasers, will begin within one week of my inauguration.”
Your attitude is the problem. WE DO NOT REWARD LAWLESSNESS OR INVADING ENEMIES with perks of citizenship. I'd rather fight in the streets than allow that... you may be born to be an American... but you do not think like an American... not one that cares about our society and sovereignty. This issue is huge and the vast majority of Americans want our borders sealed and these illegals sent home... that is what we want and nothing less. It will happen... Ike did it and we will do it again... one day.
