hard to believe that Marco Rubio has only been in the Senate since
January 2011. With the way he has been going on lately, telling
conservatives what a bunch of unenlightened rubes we are for objecting
to his immigration reform, you would think he’d been a Senator for 20
once Tea Party favorite, whose chances of being elected President are
now on par with Mark Sanford, has been at the forefront of jamming the
Democrat’s dream of opening the immigration floodgates through Congress,
an effort that shares many the hallmarks of the passage of Obamacare:
Put together in the dead of night by Washington insiders with zero transparency. Check.
the bill through the legislative process as fast as humanly possible
before the opposition can get their act together. Check.
Refusing to accept even the barest hint of cooperation with Republicans who aren’t RINOs. Check.
We’ll have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it! Check.
everything the Tea Party movement has dedicated itself against Rubio is
blazing a trail of lies and deceit that must make Obama proud. Despite
Rubio’s assurances that legalization efforts won’t go into effect until
after the border is secure, a multitude of analysts have shown this to
be a complete falsehood. Once DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano says the
border is secure, whether it is or not, the bill goes into effect.
Trusting someone who is stocking up on hundreds of millions of rounds of
ammo, more than enough to conquer all of Asia Minor, isn’t exactly what
most conservatives would call a good bet.
Other fun facts that Rubio has neglected to mention during his magical media tour include:
gigantic boon for immigration lawyers as countless appeals, court
appearances and so on are granted to illegals before they can be
that’s just what we know so far. With the endless ability for the
DHS Secretary togrant exceptions to not only individuals, but entire “classes of aliens” from conforming to the law, things could get much worse.
question conservatives are asking themselves lately is why would Rubio
serve as a patsy for this clearly dangerous legislation? The answer is
he is corrupt. Corrupted by a Washington culture where the elites think
they are smarter than us, that they have the power to tell us what to do
and who we have to accept into our communities, regardless of the cost
to our society and pocketbooks. Where attending Georgetown
cocktail parties attended by only the very best sort makes them better
than the common people they lord over. A symptom of a government that is
no longer of the people, by the people, for the people, but now only
for the elite.
From Tea Party favorite to corrupt Washington insider in only two years, ladies and gentlemen, I give you Marco Rubio.
Rubio Rubs Republicans Raw: Chaffing Facts About Gang of 8 Reform - ACORN No Longer Needed
following are selected details and commentary about the immigration
bill Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has written in tandem with the Gang of
Eight headed by Senate Scoundrel, Chuck Schumer (D-NY). As Rich Lowery
says in an article in Politico today, Rubio was a huge "get." He was a
Republican darling, thought to be conservative. He is of Cuban ancestory
with an interesting backstory, handsome, with a pretty family and can
out-orate Obama without a teleprompter. Does it get any better than that
for a Merry Band of Senate Progressives? Who needs ACORN to organize
Democrat voters when you have Senators Marco Rubio, John McCain (R-AZ),
Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ)? If you merged the photos
of the Gang of Eight, you'd get this:
border security before legal status (completely contrary to what Rubio
promised - because, he says, we need "to freeze in place" the 11 million
already here - no time to wait for border security - call this 'had' by
the bill, no additional enforcement has to take place before
undocumented immigrants get legalized. The secretary of the Department
of Homeland Security merely has to come up with a strategy for
enforcement and notify Congress that it has commenced. It doesn’t matter
if it is a good, bad or indifferent plan, so long as it is a plan.
Then, an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants get legal
genius is to have placated Rubio not just with promises, but with new
versions of old promises. Rubio touts the bill’s mandate for the
creation of an exit-entry tracking system, a key piece of the puzzle of
controlling who comes here. Congress first mandated the creation of such
a system in 1996. Rich Lowry writing for Politico
years, only, until the bill passes and "legal status," not citizenship,
allows a pathway to the voter booth for an estimated 2 million to 3
million of the 11 million illegals, so considering history, those
numbers will be much larger.
Schumer-Rubio bill, however, creates an expedited citizenship process
for millions of illegal immigrants. These immigrants are eligible for
citizenship in just 5 years...
Schumer-Rubio bill incorporates provisions of the proposed DREAM Act.
The provisions apply to individuals who, as children, were brought into
the country illegally by their parents. An individual brought into the
US when they were 16 or younger and has completed high school and two
years towards a bachelor degree or served 4 years in the military can
change their status and apply for permanent legal residency (green card)
after just 5 years. Other illegal immigrants have to wait 10 years.
the legislation, however, DREAM immigrants can immediately apply for
citizenship once the have permanent legal status. Currently, immigrants
with green cards have to wait 5 years to apply for citizenship. The
Schumer-Rubio legislation, however, counts the time the immigrant held
an RPI visa and allows an immediate petition for citizenship. Other
immigrants, once they have their green card, would have to wait three
years before they could apply to become citizens.
to a Senate office involved in the deliberations, 2-3 million
immigrants would be eligible for the expedited citizenship path. In
addition, these immigrants could also immediately apply for their
spouses or children to be put on a path to citizenship, adding hundreds
of thousands more citizens.
course, as citizens, these millions of new citizens are eligible to
vote. Republicans may ease their minds thinking they have 13 years to
broaden their outreach to Hispanics. The political implications,
however, begin in just 5 years. Source: Mike Flynn for Breitbart
The Gang of Eight’s 844-page immigration reform legislation makes
it easier for asylum seekers to come to America. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19,
the Boston Marathon bomber suspect, who was apprehended last Friday,
after he was found wounded in a boat in Watertown, Boston, after the
Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and injured nearly 200
others, came to America legally by claiming asylum with his father.
Marco Rubio (R-FL) is doubling down on immigration reform. What a
disappointment he’s turned out to be. He’s taking a page right out of
the progressive Democrats’ playbook. He wasted no time in getting his talking points together to exploit the Boston Marathon bombing, and now he’s attacking conservatives, the very people who helped to put him in office.
are attacking other conservatives who disagree with them as racists,
slavery supporters, bigots, haters, baby killers, un-Christian,
etc. They are waging a coordinated attack between Senator Rubio’s office
and others against conservative stalwarts like the Heritage Foundation
and Jim DeMint.
are proposing a plan that thus far appears to be unworkable, is wholly
too complicated, and is a distraction from issues that we could all
agree on in the name of getting a plan acceptable to Democrats. In the
process, their attacks on conservatives designed to intimidate,
browbeat, and silence them opens old wounds and does exactly what the
Democrats hoped to do — divide the right and play directly to the fears
of Hispanic voters who have for so long seen political leaders of both
parties demagogue the issue.
of the people who want an immigration solution frankly could care less
about Hispanic voters. They see this as an issue the GOP has to get
right on and they will do whatever it takes to get right on the issue.
They are playing political games. Seeing self-styled conservatives and
libertarians trying to pass any legislation that is labeled
“comprehensive” should always be a red flag.
have seen friends paint others as racists, as sympathizers to abortion
advocates, and as haters all to try to steam roll through their
preferred policy solution. I have seen good conservative organizations
attacked and lumped in with fringe groups. I have seen mainstream groups
characterized as fringe. I have seen people whore their faith in the
name of immigration reform. (Read More)
I mean nothing, comes out of Rubio’s office without Rubio himself
signing off on it. Burgos and his PAC team run cover for Rubio at every
turn. You see, Rubio is only a ‘cash cow’ to them, nothing more. Just
ask his grossly overpaid PAC ‘consultants.’ (Read More)
keep wondering when Rubio’s going to do like Charlie Crist and come out
as a Democrat. But then again, he can just go the route of Lindsey
Graham and John McCain, which isn’t much better.
