Rubio calls for compromise on immigration
Associated Press ^ | June 22, 2012

Posted on 06/22/2012 10:29:06 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Sen. Marco Rubio believes Democrats and Republicans are refusing to compromise on solving illegal immigration issues because each party is convinced it's a more powerful political tool if left unsolved.

Just follow the law and DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS.

It’s not brain surgery - one just needs cahones.

The compromise would be do what a majority of US Citizens want to happen. Close the border and enforce the laws. End chain migration..go back to qouta’s and qualifications for immigration. The politicians want to pander to various ethnic groups in exchange for their votes and money. The public is not swayed by those items.

This is a mockery to all the people who come into this country legally.

As long as we have people running unchecked across the borders, we don't need a Department of Homeland Security.

Well, one helpful result of this whole immigration discussion is we have learned that Marco Rubio is a racist and a demagogue.

Rubio calls for compromise on immigration....


Well, there you have it.....COMPROMISE. The Republican tool for self-defeat.

Rubio is going far in the “go along to get along” party.

Compromise = Amnesty

If you aren’t deporting...you are rewarding

Rubio needs to drop the Liberal Amnesty nonsense

Cut off all welfare and related programs and fine the hell out of anyone that employes them on a first offense and mandatory prison time if caught hiring them again!

THAT’S MINIMUM COMPROMISE!

only whites can be racist

and i am one nowadays by the template

my ancestors built 90% of this joint...not Rubios

i’m about ready to tell him to nut up and go back and take what was his actually

about 90 miles south of Marathon Florida

and quit inviting all his blood here illegally

which is another lie since most Cubans here are white as hell and left behind a mulatto nation dominated by a white Canary Island and Galician (Celtic) descended Marxist elite

was all that confusing enough?

that conservatives kiss Rubios arse is as disgusting as how they once worshipped Powell and Rice here

the idiocy of 100% white Hispanics down with the blood like Vato Amerindians in East LA and tossing my heritage overboard for that when they couldn't even keep their own original country free in the first place

well screw you Mark...and the inner tube you rode in on...metaphorically

and to think I even liked him at first

"it's a more powerful political tool if left unsolved."

No matter what your opinion on the solution, he's right. Both parties are using this. Obama and the Dems are trying to portray themselves as grantors of largesse - or rather implying that they would be, except for those evil Republicans - while the GOP candidates are playing to the anti-immigration crowd by not being honest about the solutions, while at the same time maintaining deniability so that they can say everything was the Dems' fault.

It's cynical and it just leaves the door open for self-serving, dramatic-gesture "solutions" of the type we have just seen.

But that doesn't create policy, and it doesn't solve the problem for the future because neither of the parties has the courage to annoy what they believe to be their constituencies.

Any overall policy is bound to have something in it that will annoy different people on both sides, and the politicians don't have the courage to even begin discussing it because it's easier for them to use the situation as they have it now.

Rubio needs to shut-up about immigration. It does no good to have him and Jebbie and other reputed Republicans running around during a presidential year pandering to Latinos and constantly making proposals most Republican voters oppose.

These geniuses never admit that their constant pandering can alienate far more Republican voters than the few Latinos it might win over.

Here’s my compromise Senator Marco Rino (r-floriduh)

Instead of shooting the bastards dead when they attempt to sneak in, we build a fence and man it Like we do for the South Koreans. If they are caught attempting to sneek in we chop off a foot on the first charge the second one we stake em down in the mountains cut out a gut and let em watch the coyotes feast on them.

If this moron is selected as Rino Romney’s running mate I am not voting for em. Sorry. Won’t do it. I’ll vote but it will NOT be these two turds.

This shows shows what side of the border Rubio is on.

His email, cell phone and the like will tell the tale---WRT which Third World federales are giving him orders.

He is super-hyphenated....oblivious to lation obsession with undermining US ntl security.

============================================

REFERENCE Raza studies is a virulent anti-America agenda, a bloodthirsty dream by illegals to kill off US citizens:

One Raza Studies textbook titled “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood- curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

This is taken directly from Occupied America (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (this is AKA the Plan of San Diego).

America-hating Raza Studies teach violence and undermining US ntl security----and preaches the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation.

Course, if you oppose this, you are "heartless"....../s.

Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza/LULAC/Mecha/MALDEF indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools.

Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.

Raul Grijalva is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding and abetting building a Third World on US soil.

No Amnesty Bump for Obama in Voter Poll / Rush Limbaugh.com / FR Posted by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT Investor's Business Daily story here by Andrew Malcolm, formerly of the Los Angeles Times. "Obama's Immigration Ploy Has Gained Him Nada" in the polls. "To help smother the dismal reviews of his economic reset speech last week in Cleveland, President Obama scheduled a last-minute Rose Garden appearance Friday morning to add some presidential heft to his executive order about immigration. Whenever he's in trouble, the one-time Real Good Talker throws another speech out there.

"Until this spring's troubles, everybody always said speaking was his strong suit. His Fidel Castro-length economic remarks blamed Europe, Congress and the usual Texan [George Bush] for the nation's re-sinking economy." So here's Andrew Malcolm reviewing the Obama that we all know. It's the same guy. He goes on and on and on, says nothing, stutters and hems and haws without a prompter. It's common. It's every day. To the guy at the New York Times, it's panic time. Oh, no! My God, he doesn't look so smart now. He doesn't look so in command. It's the same Obama that everybody gets every day. And then Andrew Malcolm writes, "But -- are you sitting down? -- it contained no new ideas. He's still waiting for Congress to do something, you see.

So, the 6,300 words ended up merely calling more sustained attention to the administration's idea bankruptcy, to the dim outlook for job improvements and to how bad the economy remains, despite all the promises more than 700 days ago of a magnificent Recovery Summer. Two-thirds of Americans remain convinced their country is still mired in recession.

"So, to change the subject quickly, Obama's Friday schedule was amended for him to get some news coverage about what he'd already told Homeland Security to do: Permit illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children to remain here under certain conditions, not including citizenship.--SNIP--

The openly obvious Communist strategy is to supplant the dominant white Christian voting bloc in the United States.

Racists like Rubio, packaged as he is in a pretty package and calling himself a Republican, are an especially dangerous component of this ongoing and accelerating assault.

Anyone who doesn't have Rubio pegged yet isn't paying attention. He's helping Obama and the MSM by almost daily serving to keep amnesty and Dream Act, etc. as a topic in the news. It diverts attention from the dismal economy and other Obama failures.

Rubio needs to shut-up about illegal aliens completely, and so does Romney to the extent possible.

Replace half of AP employees with illegal immigrants. Start with the most experienced so AP can maximize their profits. Then do the same with the rest of the main stream media corporations. Maybe then we’ll get some honest reporting on the effects of illegal immigration.

Waste of energy trying to win them over. They are not going to vote Republican so Romney should just stick to the hardline he took during the primaries. Take the opposite tact than obama. Play up the high cost of healthcare, education and welfare angle. People get that. Either you have conservative values or you don’t. My husband of 40 years is hispanic - Puerto Rican descent (born here). He despises obama and the democrats and the culture of death and homosexuality, as do most hispanics. There is a big difference between born in the USA “All American” hispanics and illegal hispanics. The GOP needs to understand the difference between the two and cater to the pro life, pro business, pro family hispanics and let the ones who snuck across the border self-deport which was his original plan.

They’ll stop if American-Americans get in their foreign faces. That race nonsense might play in Miami, but he represents a State of Americans.

We have to make Rubio pay for his foreign anti-American diversity racist personality disorder. He serves the State of Florida; not the States of foreign invaders.

RUBIO CLAIMS IMMIGRATION REFORM "is a human issue about real people....upstanding citizens......with hopes and dreams.....”

But Rubio fails to mention that most of them establish multiple identities using forged/faked documents....some of them are drug dealers, rapists, murderers, and bank robbers....

Jose Madrigal---the Washington state rapist---had some 30 identities. Another illegal used multiple identities to bilk UI programs of $3.5 million.

Keep in mind, these border violaters are practiced connivers, expert at "invention," pretending to be model citizens---duping people---saying whatever is necessary to get what they want.

=================================================

DATELINE-NBC RECENTLY DID THE STORY ABOUT THE Bike Path rapist/serial murderer---Altemio Sanchez. For years Sanchez lived the charmed life of a model citizen, ideal husband and father, Little League coach, a proud latino w/ a steady job. Beneath his invented facade, he was a savage rapist and murderer who had committed countless heinous crimes for decades.

Dateline-NBC broadcast pics of Sanchez laughing at a party, sitting beside his smiling wife, just hours after he had brutally murdered a woman.

At another point, Sanchez humbly participated in a marathon race, held to commemorate one of his victims.

This "model citizen" let an innocent man rot in jail for 23 years for crimes Sanchez knew he, himself, had committed.

Sanchez was a suspect at the beginning of his crime spree (eyewitness description), but Sanchez escaped justice b/c his latino uncle lied to police about his nephew's whereabouts, leaving Sanchez free to rape and kill over and over again.

Twenty years later, the uncle admitted he lied, Sanchez was arrested, and pled guilty to 15 rapes and three murders but Buffalo, NY police say Sanchez actually committed 22 rapes...and probably even more murders. He was sentenced to 75 years in prison.

Sanchez was a classic sociopath---completely without conscience---reinventing himself as a model citizen---knowing full well he was duping his friends, neighbors, employers.
