Rubio Offers Full-Throated
Support for Immigration Bill

New York Times, by Brian Knowlton

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/14/2013 5:33:09 PM

The impending introduction of legislation to overhaul the country’s badly strained immigration system received an extraordinary endorsement on Sunday from Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, who, after holding back for weeks, appeared on no fewer than seven television talk shows to explain and defend a plan that he said would be “a net positive for the country, now and in the future.” It was a striking show of confidence from Mr. Rubio, one of eight members of a bipartisan Senate group that has been crafting a plan to provide a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants;

Comments:
This should be a cautionary tale for many of my fellow posters here at LCom. Just like Christie before him, he also blazes on the scene and then gets seduced by the dRATS controlled media to believe he´s presidential "material." Do you see a pattern here, yet? Rubio becomes one of the "gang-of eight" to do all this secret immigration negotiating when it is the responsibility of the 100 first in open session. Is this the 1,500 page bill that Senators are being "forced" to vote on with less than 24 hours after it is "submitted?"

Before Rubio even announced he was running, I was at a meeting where he spoke.
As much as I like him, I was leery because Jeb Bush was behind his candidacy.

When Schumer, Grahamnesty, and Rove praise him you know that assimilation of Rubio into the political Borg is nearly complete. Time is running out for Marco to extricate himself.

Rubio reveals that he is no Conservative, not even a middle-of-the-roader. Is he in the pay of foreign interests? Whatever, he is quite willing to do what he is smart enough to know will cause lasting harm to this country, perhaps destroy it in the long term.

I want to see the border provisions, but from what else I´ve seen it looks like a good plan. The visa entry-exit system get´s fixed, e-verify is mandatory, no obamacare, no green card for 10 years. A fine and a background check for temporary status. It looks like a big improvement from ´06´s Kennedy-McCain disaster and the ´07 Kyl-Kennedy bill.

They can say, no government goodies, BUT, that´s not to say once the illegals are given the green light, the next step will be, "well we need to let them have (fill in the blank), because (fill in the blank). The bottom line is, they are being given amnesty if this goes thru, & it is a kick in the teeth for every person that ever jump thru all the bureaucratic hoops that Washington can think up to let them come here legally. It is also an insult to us all, for politicians to get on TV & tell lies & expect us to believe it. The "mushroom" principle is alive & well in Washington DC.........!!! God help us all.

Some pretty silly posts here. Rubio isn´t a traitor and he is a conservative. Because you disagree on an issue doesn´t make him a traitor.

Some of us will have to get real. We aren´t deporting 12M illegals and in 20 years this problem will go away--because the kids of these illegals will be citizens by birth, so we are going to have to do something between now and then. If we get border enforcement first, as Rubio says, what´s wrong with this plan?

But none of us have seen any details, so the outrage is a bit premature.

Common sense will tell you that when they flood the legal US job market with tens of millions of cheap foreign workers by way of an amnesty for 11 to 20 million illegal aliens, plus allowing millions more foreigners into the country to work by way of so-called "guest worker" programs that it will be American workers who will be holding the crappy end of the stick as wages and benefits go down in US industries who could then hire those foreign workers who everybody knows are willing to work for much less then American workers can accept, and still maintain their customary US standard of living. Many American workers do not realize that those foreign workers will be legally able to compete with them for just about all of the scarce jobs out there today across the entire US economy. Imagine being an American black youth just out of high school looking for work once the job market is flooded with many millions of foreign workers?

In the years ahead if this goes through the Republicans are going to be headed into political oblivion when the Democrats pick up ten million of more new foreign born voters as a result of all this.

Why does the govt have to be so involved? Back in the 70s after the fall of Vietnam, thousands of refugees needed a place to go. Here in Minnesota, churches sponsored boatloads of Hmong refugees, helped them get started, and looked after them for a few years, guiding them to acclimate to their new home. I realize that illegal immigrants are not refugees, but perhaps the govt should seal the border, and the churches step in. A deadline can be established that all undocumented people who are not sponsored by a church by such-and-such a date, will have to start the process of returning to their native country. Those sponsored by a church, are to fulfill various requirements (fine, learn English, etc). This could be a win-win situation. The churches can show and share their faith (and values) and the illegals have a choice of two pathways to choose. I would hope that Rubio would explore all areas of solution and not depend on the govt to be the answer.

Dems will promise they will control the border, but after the bill is passed they will never control the border and the rinos can cry... and the dems can come back in five years & do it again .The dems do the repubs the same way with promises to balance the budget, they agree to budget cuts along with tax increases...the tax increases take effect immediately the budget cuts never happen.

Both party`s are trolling for votes regarding illegal border crossing. There is simply no national need to legalize anyone from anywhere right now. We have 90 million unemployed citizens and legalizing millions more will only exacerbate the problem.

I won´t vote for Rubio for anything now. And let´s stop with this phony argument about deporting 12 million illegals. You cut off taxpayer benefits, cut off jobs, they will self deport. They were doing that before the traitor Rubio got together with the amnesty gang. Any bill that is 1500 pages long is a bad bill because you know no on will be reading it until it has passed and then everyone will find out just how bad it is.

I was for Rubio when he was way behind Crist in the polls. I voted for him.

If Schummer ses No Obstacles in the way means the security issue is not handled.
Rubio specically said on RUSH that he would not support a bill unless the borders were
secured first. He has f´d the conservatives.

On another note I don´t care about McCain´s war hero status. Others were prisoners also.

He is not a hero for flying poorly as was his track record and getting shot down.

He has a vile temper and a small man. If he is a hero for surviving a prison camp, he is a traitor for undercutting Bush in the middle of a WAR(Iraq).

Rubio made the TV slam this morning. I don´t buy it. Anything with Schumer is going to be dishonest. The fact that no one has seen the 1,500 page law which will have a one day hearing before voting, convinces me that it is another fraud with Marco the front man.

Shame. (His mail box was full so I guess he is getting an ear full.)

Rubio went on Rush and promised no amnesty without first securing the borders. Rubio lied through his teeth, on the air, on Rush´s airtime. Will Rush now call him out for the conniving little double crosser he is?

My question for Rush: did he at least kiss you first?

I actually listened to Rubio on the Sunday shows today. You shouldn´t believe the NYT.
Rubio was not for amnesty but for ten years before they could even get a green card and also Rubio is still requiring border security first. I am amazed that Lucianne posters are so ill- informed.

I listened carefully to every single word from Senator Rubio. I am not ill-informed or hard of hearing. I simply am on to the very clever spin job. Let´s take border security. Border security definition please? It´s beyond foolish to accept that without knowing WHAT it means. Then he mentions they get no federal benefits. How about state benefits? We know they will be getting all sorts of freebies. I am not ill-informed. I just do not like being lied to and tricked by these politicians.

The fact that Rubio was on all of the Sunday programs should be enough for anyone who knows why these shows exist to understand what he´s all about. Because he is playing kissy-face with scum like Schumer and Durbin, he will now be accorded the same false wisdom that is usually given to the likes of McCain and Grahamnesty.

Hold your powder! Rubio is brilliant. He is using the megaphone to telegraph the best resolution to the illegal immigrant problem. You know anything that comes from this Progressive run congress will not look anything like this plan... So he will reject it at vote time.

I still trust Rubio. He´s a strong Christian Freedom loving Tea Partier, trying to manipulate the machine.

If the Republicans do not have the basic enforcement elements of immigration reform in place and up and running before the millions of illegal aliens here now are granted any sort of legal status the enforcement elements will never happen.

Back after the big 1986 amnesty, as soon as the illegal aliens were granted a legal status, the Democrats and their political allies the liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups, started fighting and sabotaging the enforcement elements that they agreed to in the basic reform legislation, tooth and nail, administratively through the bureaucracy, legislatively in Congress, and legally through the courts, until those enforcement elements were either watered down to ineffectiveness, or were essentially abandoned. No doubt the Democrats will do the same thing again as a good portion of their so-called Hispanic vote does not want any effective immigration laws enforced against their countrymen, friends, and relatives who will continue to sneak into the USA in the future.

The most important enforcement element is a mandatory enhanced e-verify employee electronic verification system underpinned by a modern high-tech social security card bearing a photo of the bearer, other biometric identifiers, with electronic verification capability. Without that up and running, new illegal aliens will continue to sneak into the country or overstay visas and border crossing card time limits, and will fraudulently use valid identification documents and social security cards that were issued to other people to get a job here. As long as that can happen there is no way to stop future mass uncontrolled illegal immigration.

The border crossers have no desire to work! They have been thoroughly instructed which forms need to be completed and what the steps are for getting on the dole! With brochures in Mexico now instructing Mexicans the proper method to get food stamps they are stampeding across the Rio Grande. Thanks, WH and DC Dems.

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Obama administration puts off

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
