Rubio Wants GOP DREAM Act in Place in Time for Fall College Semester
Fox News Latino ^ | April 20, 2012 | Elizabeth Llorente

Posted on 04/21/2012 9:36:37 PM PDT by olcurmudgeon

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. “We’re 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. “We’re involving the kids themselves.” Asked by a reporter when it will be introduced in the Senate, Rubio said: “When it’s ready. It won’t be next week.” He said he hopes it gets introduced by summer and passed by fall.

Christ Almighty, this country is as racist as racist can be.

And to add to my last comment, it is disgusting that so many will bend over backwards to serve illegals instead of...drumroll, please...actual constituents aka legal voters.

Alright, fair enough, but what if I wants my Fox News in Ebonics?

Where does I go?

Also I kinda feel like Fox News is turning its back on the Japanese and those who speak Mandarin.

Shades of the talk about Rubio we had poolside before the GOP presidentail debate are flooding back to me. I’m not sure if y’all heard or remember it, because some of us were running back and forth to the office to use the printer...LOL.

No wonder Rubio endorsed Romney and turned on Newt Gingrich so rapidly about that one radio ad that ran briefly in FL, but completely ignored Romney’s vicious attack ads on Newt Gingrich.

Rubio really used the Tea Party like many of them have.

Hope he enjoys his new job thanks to people in the Tea Party like me.

Rubio was hand picked by the Bushes. What did you expect?

One of the first National comments he made running for the Senate was to condemn Arizona for trying to protect itself from invasion and drug lords.

Well, well, well. The entitlement class speaks again.

He really sounds so sure of himself doesn’t he?

Hey Rubio, why don’t you just order an edict like Obama.

The split on illegal immigration consistently runs 70/30 against him and his DREAMERS but he doesn’t worry about us serfs out here.

Of course, I already knew that I guy that won’t say he’s not a natural born citizen has no use for the Constitution.

“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...

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.

Seriously, for a minute.

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!

He said youth like Daniela should be allowed to obtain a non-immigrant visa, which would allow them to study, work, and get a driver’s license, but not grant them permanent residency.

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!

Did anyone read the full article? The excerpt that was posted ends right before the paragraphs that point out that Rubio's bill would not create a path to citizenship, which is why amnesty supporters are opposed to it. Just because it has DREAM in the name, and such term was by pro-amnesty groups a few years ago, doesn't mean that his bill would provide amnesty.

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.

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.

By that logic, we should be giving the children of those who waited in line legally student visas not the children of the lawbreakers.

Think of how many people there are who followed the law, respected our borders, respected our Constitution, respected our sovereignty and their children AREN’T being rewarded with student visas.

Also, I don’t believe for one second that this isn’t just another attempt to get their crowbar into the door.

NAIVETY at the highest level to believe anything else.

Remember gays didn’t want special rights or to be married or access to schools, adopt children, donate blood...they just wanted to be left alone...where are we now with that?

Gay days, religious people silenced, threatened, or fired. Too many atrocities to list here.

Well better a Rubio plan than a Obama or Democrat plan. He states NO citizenship involved. Look the fact is Reagan started this with his amnesty bill signing. There is no way back outside of a war now. And with half the country in pansy state there is likely no war happening on this issue.

I see a big problem for conservatives if the do not do something on this issue as we can not win elections when the biggest growing ethnic sector is voting 90% against us on this one issue. Let them go to school, let them pay then get in line.

I do not know exactly what Rubio has written but I am telling you all we need a plan before all kaos breaks out on this issue and I would rather be writing it than being forever behind the political eight ball on it...
