Washington D.C. Marco Rubio says he wants his version of the DREAM Act in effect by fall, just in time for undocumented students to be able to attend college fall semester. Rubio, in two separate events in Washington D.C., said his plan is still being hammered out, and important details such as the minimum and maximum age of those who would qualify were yet to be determined. Were involving the DREAMers in the drafting of the measure, he said, using the term that refers to undocumented youth brought to the country by their parents. Were involving the kids themselves. Asked by a reporter when it will be introduced in the Senate, Rubio said: When its ready. It wont be next week. He said he hopes it gets introduced by summer and passed by fall.

“Rubio Wants GOP DREAM Act in Place in Time for Fall College Semester”
That’s interesting because...
I want DREAMERS AKA ILLEGAL ALIENS out of the USA in time for Fall College Semester.
This is obviously not a very conservative stance. Conservatism is the only thing that will save this country, not handouts and targeted entitlements.
I had qualms about this guy ever since all the freepers who hopped aboard the Mel Martinez express the moment he announced, SWORE they knew him PERSONALLY and could vouch that he's a staunch hardcore Reagan Republican who "100% opposes illegal immigration"...
...said the exact same thing 6 years later when Marco Rubio announced his candidacy.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...
we need to control both houses of congress this time next year so we can derail the liberal legislative agenda.
...actual constituents aka legal voters.
Add to that, combat veterans, if not for privelege, which no vet would take, but for sheer audacity.
I got an idea! Let’s reward parents who criminally sneak into the US by coddling their kids.
Or, let’s dismiss any talk of Rubio on a national ticket as a nightmare.
Yeah, that’s a better idea.
Sickening..... people south of the border laugh at us since we agreed to become their dumping ground. They used to fear us now they invade us
Oh, gee! Thanks for the trip now memory lane! :)
Back in the days of the raucous Tea Party events, Rubio was a guest speaker (at the very beginning of his candidacy) at one of our events. I was able to approach him and question him on his amnesty views and he satisfied my concerns. He had been reported to be in favor of amnesty, but again, he answered my concerns and said he wasn't in favor of any kind of amnesty. Well!! Seems he's going back on his personal word to me...and, many others!
Ah, let me go out on a limb here and take a flyer: Would not drivers license allow these poor, undocumented "Imigrants" the "Right" to vote?
Nuttin' to see here; just move along all you racist gringos!
It seems like Rubio's bill would give college-aged illegal aliens brought here as kids and educated in U.S. schools the equivalent of student visas, such as are handed out annually to thousands of foreigners who apply to U.S. universities. Such visas do not confer U.S. citizenship, and do not even set up a pathway to citizenship. Watch how the amnesty pushers are all aghast at Rubio's "anti-immigrant" and "discriminatory" bill; while the devil's in the details, and I would like to see the final text before endorsing it, the fact that the open-borders and backdoor-amnesty crowds oppose the bill is a positive sign. Opposing anything with the word "dream" in it is just plain stupid.
Remember when Marco was the “tea party candidate?” Of course as soon as he was elected he started to back away from the tea party. Don’t forget he’s one of the “rising starts” of the GOP. Another RINO in training just like Cantor.
They shouldn’t be getting anything.
You are being either being ridiculously naive or you are on the side of rewarding the lawbreakers.
The democrats seem to loathe this bill. Rubio should have called it something it else.
I am opposed to amnesty for illegal aliens, and believe the 1986 amnesty to be one of President Reagan’s biggest mistakes of his presidency. We should not reward people who break our laws and come here illegally by letting them cut in line for U.S. citizenship, particularly since it would create an incentive for more people to come here illegally in expectation for the next amnesty.
But here, depending on the final wording of the bill, we’d be talking about teenagers brought to the U.S. as children and educated at U.S. schools, and they’d be getting not U.S. citizenship, or even a path to U.S. citizenship, but the equivalent of a student visa that we hand out every year to just about any foreigner who is accepted into a U.S. college. I don’t think it’s such a big deal, and it would ut the heart out of an issue for the Democrats. So while I want to see the final wording (I wouldn’t want it to apply to 16-year-olds brought into the U.S.), it’s not something that should be rejected out of hand. It is not amnesty.
I’m sure he chose the name for political reasons—pro-amnesty Democrats don’t want to face a bunch of ads saying they “voted against the Dream Act,” and Republicans can claim they supported the Dream of a college education without adopting amnesty.
