We do have hundreds of thousands of young people in this country that entered without any fault of their own and if we have a chance to allow them to get right what their parents got wrong, and if we can do it in a way that doesn't encourage illegal immigration in the future, we should consider that. Wishful thinking and -still do NOT see the parents should be arrested and deported.
Is Rubio tone deaf?
Rubio should SHUT UP about amnesty. Not reframe it. Not call it something else. SHUT UP ABOUT IT.
Then, forget about it entirely.
"If we decline, who rises?"
I'd like to see that question put to Obama in a debate or presser.

Romney could actually beat Obama if he wanted to, but he seems more interested in pandering to the Left where he has very little chance of winning votes.

What I like most about Rubio is that he is able to put it in the face of the media no matter what they throw at him.

There is no way to do anything for these people which doesn’t encourage future illegals.

Rubio sought to recast his Dream Act alternative as a “humanitarian” concern, not an immigration one.
“Let’s say we call a dog’s tail a leg.
How many legs does it have then?
It still has four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.”
A. Lincoln to a jury, borrowing from a dead Greek who taught that calling a mule a horse doesn’t make it a horse. He won.
We’re not as think as you drunk we are. Nice try though, Marco. Back to the drawing boards .....

Rubio has an email addy on his web site. Send him a message. I did the other day. While I was polite, my message to him as one of his constituents was strongly worded.
I informed him I would be part of a future Tea Party movement if he continued with his "Dream Act" crap.
Looks like he's backtracking a little now. I really think the emails have been having an effect. Please take a minute now to send off a blue dart to him in case he's falling asleep again. I believe the messages are working.

While not reality, let’s extend your argument by a factor of 1000. Are you also ok with hundreds of MILLIONS of young people being naturalized because, even though they’re illegal, it’s not their fault?
To do so would completely and immediately change the U.S. from America into a hodge podge of Mexico plus Latin American states. You and your vote would lose all meaning.
Your argument is the old “a little bit pregnant” discussion.

Yeah, sure, we need more democrat voters!
If you want to be "humanitarian" do something to keep American kids safe from a marxist state!

And how old was Rubio when the famed yet dreaded Simpson-Mazzoli Act went through 25 years ago and that was to be the LAST time we were going to have to swallow the bitter pill of amnesty/regularization and for humanitarian purposes put it all behind us. Here is an idea: Close the FRIKKIN SOUTHERN BORDER completely, hermetically FIRST from Gulf to Ocean, before ANY OTHER CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT LEGAL STATUS are made about people on our soil here out of legal immigration status. Dig that Senator??!! Listen to the base, Pretty Boy. And DO NOT PISS US OFF. LEARN FROM YOUR COLLEAGUE RICHARD LUGAR THAT OUR LOVE IS NOT UNCONDITIONAL. YOU ARE HERE TO SERVE US AND OUR LAWS, GOT IT??!! THOSE ARE YOUR ORDERS. THAT IS ALL. CARRY ON.

Rubio was hailed as a darling of the Republican Party and Conservatism without any vetting - in a way those who elevated him did so in a way that is similar to Affirmative Action...
