Posted on 06/14/2013 12:55:13 PM PDT by servo1969
RUSH: Folks, I can't tell you, I don't even want to have to say this. This is painful. Did you hear what Senator Rubio said? We need to bring the illegals here so that they will pay for the border security that we need. I know. I can't tell you, this is painful for me.
I'm paraphrasing because I don't have the exact quote, but the immigrants that we legalize, we have to have 'em because they are going to pay for border security, to pay for the fence. I guess what is meant by that is that we need the new taxpayers. Now immigrants are more fertile. They create more businesses than native born Americans over the last 20 years. They love their families. We don't. He didn't say that, but why point out that they love their families? They're more intact families, younger population. I'm trying not to be reactionary. That's why I'm not saying anything.
RUSH: The Rubio quote: "We need to register them as soon as possible, not just to keep the problem from getting worse, but were going to require them to pay a fine, and thats the money that we are going to use to pay for the border security. If we dont get that fine money from the people that have violated our immigration laws, then the American taxpayer is going to have to pay for border security."
RUSH: I'll tell you why it pains me, why it is really, really painful, this stuff. Because I really like Senator Rubio. I remember Senator Rubio campaigning against Crist. I know who Rubio is. I wish he would get out of this whole immigration fight and not tarnish himself because there is a lot of potential in Marco Rubio. This immigration thing is gonna taint him. I just hope it doesn't.
JOHNNY DONOVAN: And now, from sunny south Florida, it's Open Line Friday!
RUSH: Look what happens when you get in bed with these people on the left. I don't want to call it moving over to the dark side, but look what happens when you cross the line and go over there.
RUSH: Immigration story here from Reuters, folks. It has an interesting development in the House that really is news. First off, the headline: "Senate Rejects Republican Effort to Gut Immigration Bill -- A landmark immigration bill survived a major challenge in the Senate on Thursday when its bipartisan 'Gang of Eight' sponsors beat back an amendment that would have delayed a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal residents."
This was the Grassley amendment that was beaten back. The Grassley amendment would have prohibited a first step toward granting of legal status until the Department of Homeland Security has maintained effective control of the US-Mexico border for a period of six months. That was the amendment, which is what we had all been assured had to happen or there wouldn't be any Republican support for the Gang of Eight bill. Then that changed, that we have to do the legalization first and then do the border, for two reasons. We have to do the legalization to get 'em out of the shadows. We have to do the legalization to find out who they are. And then we have to levy fines so that the fine money we collect will pay for the border security.
But this story also has a development in the House that could be big news and disturbing news. The House immigration legislation includes, quote, from the story, "provisions giving state and local police departments powers to apprehend undocumented people." Now, remember what Michele Bachmann said. Michele Bachmann said that the House bill is gonna look really good. It's gonna look like it is really, really good. It's gonna get a lot, lotta support, and it's gonna pass the House, but the stuff in it that everybody likes is gonna be taken out in conference. That's the conspiratorial theory that has evolved about what's gonna happen in the House.
The immigration legislation in the House, again, includes provisions that give state and local police the power to apprehend undocumented people. Now, the Democrats in the House are calling that a step backward that would lead to racial profiling. John Conyers, the senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said, "It's alarming that this bill would turn millions of undocumented immigrants into criminals overnight. It's not only terrible politics but its inhumane policy."
So what we know, which we already did, but what we've had confirmed, therefore, Democrats do not want to ever detain illegal aliens, even after this latest round of amnesty. Now, that ought to open people's eyes. That ought to tell everybody everything they need to know about this whole idea of immigration reform. It really is just a plan to open the borders. The House bill grants amnesty. Well, no. The House bill moves it forward, but the House bill has a provision that local cops and state cops can apprehend undocumented people. And the Democrats say no. Now, it's still going to be illegal to cross the border after amnesty, folks. This is the key.
Even if the Senate bill were to pass and be signed by Obama, crossing the border illegally is still going to be illegal. Amnesty will not mean that anybody in the world is also free to come. Amnesty will, theoretically, only apply to the 11 million or whatever number are here. But anybody after amnesty signed into law who crosses the border illegally is still an illegal immigrant. And the House bill would therefore permit local and state authorities to apprehend those people. Democrats say, nope, no way, Jose, we're not agreeing to that. Meaning, as far as the Democrats are concerned, at no time is anybody to be treated as an illegal, which should tell everybody what the Democrats' real objective here is. And amnesty is just one step of the objective.
The objective is a constant, never-ending, inflow of low-skilled, uneducated people that will make up a permanent Democrat Party underclass. That's when the Democrats shine. That's when the Democrats think they are at their best, when they're speaking up for the downtrodden. When the Democrats are speaking up for the little guy, when the Democrats are speaking up for the poor, when the Democrats are speaking up for the hungry and the thirsty, when the Democrats are defending and speaking up for the people who have not won life's lottery, that's when they think they are their best. That's when they know they get their votes. That's when they know that they win the battle of who happens to have the most compassion, Democrats or Republicans.
The Democrats need poor people. The Democrats need a never ending inflow of poor people. And they need those people to stay poor as long as they can. They need poor people depending on Democrats. They need poor people in the welfare state rolls. They need poor people looking at government as Santa Claus. And just because we grant amnesty does not mean, as far as they're concerned, that that shuts off immigration. No. We're just gonna deal with these 11 million and we're gonna start all over again. We're gonna have millions more in another 20 years, have to do it all over again. That's what their agenda is and this pretty much shines the light on that.
Democrats need poor people so badly they have to import them. The Democrats must keep people in the dark about the source of prosperity. The Democrats must make sure that people do not learn where real prosperity comes from. As far as the Democrats are concerned, you need a never-ending flow of poor people who think that government is the source of prosperity, that government is the source of life. And as people in America grow and perhaps, maybe in time, fall out of that arrangement, the Democrats need replacements. The Democrats need poor people so badly, they have to import them.
The Democrat mission is not to raise people up out of poverty. The Democrat mission is to make sure there is a constant number, growing number of poor people. That's when the Democrats shine, folks, is when they're defending them, when they're speaking up for them, when they're making the case for the poor. That allows them to blame Republicans for practically everything, accuse Republicans of being heartless and cold and cruel and extreme and all the rest. You need victims. Victims of the Republicans, victims of conservatism, ergo you need a never-ending inflow of poor people. And, as an added bonus, the less educated they are, the better.
I’m heading over to Home Depot to take up a collection right now...
Yet the funding that was there to build the fence per the 2006 LAW was quietly pulled by Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Apparently we had the money then, and didn’t need the illegals to provide it. Just a new excuse. He really has gone over the bend!
Rubio is a fraud.
Umm, no Rubio, no. It was nice knowing you.
Please, Jesus. You cannot get here soon enough.
Marco was never who he pretended to be. He sold out quickly.
This statement legitimizes Rubio is NUTS!
Ted Cruz 2016
Not too bright.
If you want to hear a chilling expose on PRISM, listen to the following interview of William Benny, a 40 year career NSA employee who becaame the director of 6,000 analysts in their intelligence area, and who was personally involved with PRISM under Bush.
Rush could end all of their careers if he really wanted to.
I half expect that he will go Scorched Earth when the day of his retirement is at hand.
It has always been Rubio's plan to have this Immigration Decree.
Rubio is simply another, typical Republican who brings out a accent to get votes.
This reminds me of Pelosi ‘We have to pass it first before we read it’.
Rubio has a liberal’s mindset. Thanks for the full disclosure, fraud.
Rubio is turning (maybe has turned?) into McCain.
What a waste.
I agree. I want to live without the frauds and liars forever more!
i was yelling at the radio (as i do anytime Rush brings up Rubio) “he’s your boy Rush, you foisted this fraud on us”. at least Rush owned up that rubio is his boy.
Yes, we must legalize the illegals so they can enforce border security!
Whew! Much relieved, now that that’s decided!
'Cause thanks to his old friend Rubio we are on the threshold.
He sounding like Nancy Pelosi. Add him to the list of blackmailed people in Washington.
Don’t Drink the Water!
Don’t Drink the Water!*

Something Rush said yesterday morning was very telling. He casually reported that Rubio’s staff had called Rush’s staff that morning to get Rubio on the show to explain why his Univision remarks weren’t contradictory.
Rush didn’t let him on, instead he told his audience about the phone call. Very pointed, I thought. Later, when the Grassley amendment was tabled, Rush said it made him sad when people tried to take advantage of him, implying that’s what Rubio had done.
Stick a fork in Rubio, he’s done. There’s no coming back from proving to those who worked to get you elected that, besides having really bad judgement, you actually have no core principles.
Because the Fed won’t print trillions of dollars more in currency to fund infinite deficit spending.
Rubio - The GOPe’s Trojan Burro
Rubio does appear to be in a panic. He got himself onto the Hugh Hewitt Show last night, unannounced. There was a guest host. He was trying frantically to defend this. He sounded like one scared cat.
That pic with the grinning McFlake needs a hurl alert.
If that was how it would actually work, I could go for it. The REAL problem is not the number of illegal aliens in the country right now, it’s the continuing influx. If we could actually cut the influx pretty much off for 20 years, those here would assimilate reasonably well.
But of course that won’t actually happen. We’ll effectively amnesty those already here, then continue acquiring new ones. And the pressure will begin to build for our third amnesty.
Also we should have a “national conversation” about cutting down on legal immigration for an adjustment period of 20 years or so.
But we won’t. Opposing legal immigration or even its expansion is a third rail in politics.
There is no reconciling those two facts and Rush was right to not to let him even try. Rubio is actually tryoing to say its the same thing now because we need the "legal" illegal immigrants to pay for security!
Damning turn of events for Rubio...and thankk God it came out now before we all got behind him for a presidentlial run. Not going to happen now.
Not to worry though, the Great American Sean Hannity let him on. And of course couldn't quite bring himself to call Rubio a equivocating liar.
Wrong priorities have a way of cropping up on the way to building some kind of constituency beyond your natural fit.
Hispanics who have LEGALLY entered the United States and gone on to become citizens, are not well served by this back-door amnesty. They end up being branded with the same identification as the illegal entrants who have, by the magic of a wand waved in faraway Washington, suddenly become “respectable” and on a path to citizenship that seems to be a cut in line AHEAD of other lawfully admitted applicants. In this manner, ALL Hispanics are viewed with suspicion and uncertainty.
MOST OF THESE ILLEGAL RESIDENTS HAVE NO INTENTION OF EVER BECOMING US CITIZENS!! They are here only for the quick buck and to pick up on the freebies that have been handed out so generously in the past.
We can do something about the freebies (including anchor babies). Simply because a cat has kittens in an empty oven, does not make them biscuits. For all intents and purposes, most “anchor babies” are still foreign nationals until they have gone through a naturalization process, which includes being proficient in the language and conversant with the principles upon which the United States of America is founded (a requirement which, if vigorously applied, would probably exclude a good many high school “graduates”, whose families have been in the US for generations). And finally, there is the little matter of renouncing the citizenship of the land which from they left, and pledging allegiance to the flag of the United States and the nation for which it stands.
Marco Rubio has become who he is as the result of people who have done all these steps. The very least he could ask is that other new entrants to this country respect that and either return to their land of allegiance at the expiration of their visa, or proceed with all the steps necessary to become a full citizen.
Rubio is an idiot. He’s one of those democrats that ran as a Republican to get elected. His IQ must be on the bottom of the scale. Makes me wonder about Rush and Levin too. They are huge cheerleaders for him. Rubio should listen to Levin and follow his advice.
Rubio is a desperate liar. He’s tossing out whatever lies to whatever groups to see what can stick, what stupid people are willing to believe.
Every reason he’s listed for this are lies. How anyone can believe him, is crazy. You have to ignore the fact they are idiotic and just simply rather want to believe him due to irrational emotions.
I tell you I am looking up multiple times each day.
Rush is not a cheerleader for Rubio. Levin has been the one who has always and still handles Rubio with soft gloved hands.
Sean Hannity - the land where everyone is a good American. Just another ‘I need to be a good guy and obey so they don’t harm my wallet’ fraud.
We should also release all felons from prison so they can get jobs and pay for the prisons. What the hell have we turned into when the best we can do is elect people like this to govern us?
I see Rubio as the point man for Jeb. Jeb wants to run in 2016. Rubio has plenty of time to wait in line, Jeb does not.
That's something that had been said in the last primary and very few listened.
Yes, and if you look at my comments my feelings were along these lines too.
We need to first figure out what to do.
Where is anyone even saying what is going on , much less what to do?
Plus the only time we have to think about Rubio is when he tries to run in 2016. Of course THEN we should not support this moron. but what Republican has a chance in 2016 with the IRS shutting down opposition to the democrats and all the things the democrat party controls:
The enemy of the American people is the democrat party. The democrat party controls
1. the news media
3. the presidency
4. The senate
5. the gov bureaucracies
5. the unions
7. the universities
8. the schools
9. soros , Lewis,zuckerberg, msny other billionaires are democrats.
10. Obama the main tyrant is a democrat
11. silicon valley, Google etc. are democrats
12. Pelosi, REid, fienstein, Shumer, Durbin , Lois lerner r democrats
13 . the rest of the media
14. IRS , EPA, DHS, HHS, TSA, FBI, etc.
15. liberals control the supreme Court( they approved Obamacare)
15 . Democrats control all the political money .Soros, tides foundation,gov grants, move on.org,
Democrat party controls all this and more but the media and many others say that everything is the Republicans fault even though rs have only a few votes majority in the House and that's it
Democrats want to makes slaves of all Americans, turn us into cattle with less rights than a cow or farm chicken for them to manipulate.
Legalize illegals? I think that is what we use to call an irreversible process in physics. OK, maybe just a garden variety oxymoron.
What is Levin’s problem? I don’t listen to him much because of the time he comes on, but I think he’s really smart. Ugh
The amnestied illegal aliens would pay no fine, they don't have enough dinero. They would get money from us taxpayers, right from the get go.
To the many fine folks who think that Mister Rubio would make a good presidential candidate, look closely at this.
Mister Rubio has no clue on (a) how to sum up a problem, (b) how to arrive at a workable solution, (c) how to negotiate from a position of strength, (d) how to withstand (gasp) criticism from the media and (e) having, maintaining, and standing on core principles.
Mister Rubio must be primaried-out in 2016.
