Posted on 11/14/2012 2:46:33 AM PST by ding_dong_daddy_from_dumas
Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), three key Republican players on immigration, told The Hill they're ready to start working on broad-based reforms next year that could include a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently in the United States.

RINO amnesty stampede ping
Hell, the number they were feeding us a decade ago was 12 million.
BTW, I keep seeing this 11 million number tossed over and over again out by the MSM...I guess no new illegal aliens have crossed the border since 2000, when this number was first derived. Try 30 million now.
It wouldn’t surprise me if it was 5 times that. There’s a reason why DirectV, Comcast, Dish and half of the AM radio stations are broadcasting in Spanish now, and it isn’t because of naturalized and natural born hispanics already here..
So much for Rubio.
And the number is guaranteed to grow like crazy
I don’t know if they caught Boehner’s disease or vice-versa.
Term limits would have saved the republic.
If you really wanted to toss this into a mess...agree to a pathway to citizenship...for what is projected to be only eleven million, and limit it to precisely that number. The longer in country...the higher the odds you get accepted, but you have to prove that fact. The guys after 11 million? They get a 100-day pass, and then need to leave the country. Anyone hiring those folks....goes to jail....real jail (nothing less than 30 days for anyone who hires illegals with the new deal).
Let them all become tax paying citizens... declare non- hispanic whites the minority with all of it’s freebies and special protections. Establish an organization for the advancement of white people.
The Republicans want to redouble their efforts to commit political suicide.
Enfranchising millions of new Democratoc voters is the ticket to a GOP revival!
LOL! These guys are smoking crack.
Here’s what the Smart Republicans are saying:
“In order to win elections in the future, we must have 20 million more low-income Democrat voters!”
Citizenship => SS Card => legitimate employment => Taxes => Revenue.
None of these RINO’s care if these people are illegals, they want to 1. convince the Hispanics that the GOP are ok guys to sign up with, and 2. take a chuck out of the underground economy.
Rubio has always been squishy on illegal aliens. He shut up about it when Romney started considering VP candidates, but now the election’s over, here he goes again.
As the Left says, "I can't believe they are that stupid! Watch them tear the GOP apart... again!"
There go the RINO’S negotiating a peace treaty when the other side isn’t even at the table yet.
Won’t do any good. Whites will still be classified as racists, thereby nullifying protected class status.
I’m a supporter of Gov. Palin, but this has always been my one bone to pick with her. Even after the election, when McCain took to wearing the GOPe’s new favorite amnesty figleaf of ‘secure the border first, before we even discuss anything else’, Gov. Palin proclaimed on Fox News that there wasn’t the least bit of difference between her and McCain’s position on this. She even helped to get him reelected.
And now, we’ve got him leading on amnesty again.
What is wrong with the process we have in-place today? Why cannot they follow the existing law?
The GOP sees Obama buying votes and want to do it too, but it won't work for them.
Been saying that since he was elected here. He is a bush clone in this respect and this pandering will garner us nothing at all with the hispanics. Rubio didnt win here by being Cuban, he won because we gave Crist the boot & no viable candidates emerged to defeat him
Came to a conclusion a long time ago. Issues are issues, the laws are the laws, except when a new law suits our elected or our activist judges. The People’s voice (aka Citizens) means nothing to those who are supposed to support the Constitution and serve the People, and the People (aka Citizens) have been branded by the state federals as the enemy. Mind boggling. Pardon me, Jim, if I were dead I would be spinning in my grave, and that would be on a good day. These bad days ... rev up spin in our Founders and those Who Served graves. The up side for our enemies is most of them have yet to fire more shots. When did America surrender? I do want to see the surrender document.
I'm not sure about that. An ignorant, uneducated electorate begets ignorant, uneducated politicians. Term limits would just ensure we get a new group of ignorant, uneducated politicians.
I don’t want a bunch of illegals being made citizens to benefit the political class. If they’re going to sell the right to be an American I want in on some of the cash.
How about the auction off citizenship to the highest bidders and use the money to buy down the debt?
Now they sell off citizenship for the price of getting their little political butts reelected. How charming. /s
This is what the Rino’s have wanted all along and the loss they feel has given them the cover they need. They were all probably hoping for an Obama win.
We're on to you guys in Washington. We know who you are...
David Duke tried that and the same year they put him in prison. With the white organization thing.
They’ve all sold their souls for the 30 pieces of silver or gold. They couldn’t care less about America. Sad, but obviously true.
who is hatch
We meaning Americans, created this mess with illegals on our Southern border. Our federal and state governments for years looked the other way with a wink and a nod. In many cases encouraged workers to pour into this counrty to take jobs we didnt want. Businesses and agriculture were happily their willing accomplices.
The illegals responded and eventually brought their families and planted roots here. That trickle of workers quickly turned into a flood.
Now, we want them out..... Arrest them, lose the home they bought, leave their possession and everything they worked for, have their kids ripped out of school and deport the bunch....
We clearly have the legal right, they are here illegally, right? We didnt make them come, they snuck here in the middle of the night, in many cases paid a bounty to a smuggler, risked their life in the desert to be here.
So great PooBah of pure conservative values, now that you have the power and the law on your side, what would you do to solve the issue? Youve got the guys with the guns, tell them what to do.....
Tell me what solution would allow you to look in the mirror each morning, look your children in their eyes, remain a follower of Christ and uphold the constitution.
The issue must be addressed, it’s outcome and resolution has huge political implications for the USA.
Rubio is just showing leadership by tackling the issue. Unfortunately, he teamed with a RINO hack, McLame.....But reality is that a junior senator has to team with a senior senator. I’m sure, most of the senators ran and hid from Rubio when they saw him tackling this issue. Bunch of pansies.....
I am not a member of the Republican party and I have never been a member of the Republican party.
NO! NO! NO!
We’ve been here before, and the gut feeling of the country hasn’t changed.
We are fed up with the elitist legislative scum who spit on the Constitution and rule of law, in favor of expedience and ‘go along to get along’ legislative actions.
We want principled legislators who truly represent the will of their constituents.
Amnesty, path to citizenship, all that is garbage.
The ONLY path to citizenship is: Deport, get in line, do it right.
There is NO way that an illegal magically becomes legal. THEIR FIRST ACTION IN AMERICA WAS A CRIME. There is no changing that!
Well this isn’t going to go well.
hell just give em all 40 acres and a mule, then i might be able to find a job picking *their* lettuce...
This burns my britches. If there was ever a cause to get behind, it would be reform at the ballot box. These guys want to usher in the collapse of America which is what will happen with a corrupt election process and chain migration of immigrants who came illegally and will continue to come for freebies.
Poor McCain probably needed someone to get a fire extinguisher to put out the flames from his shoe soles created by his running so fast to get to his friends across the aisle to get amnesty for illegals going.
To those advocating for Rubio for 2016 — pay attention! He isn’t the conservative YOU think he is.
Jim, I do not have the right to butt in, thus my apology to you.
I Like IKE Thank God, America won that War!
Invite 50 million Mexicans into America and you’ll end up with Mexico, including the drug cartel wars. I’m starting to favour the idea of Azatland. Let’s give them California, New Mexico, Nevada and Arizona. America keeps Texas. You lose a net of 2 Democrat Senators, including Harry Reid, as well as crazy McCain. You also lose a net of 55 guaranteed Democrat electoral college votes and a huge Democrat advantage in House seats. Most importantly, you lose the drag on the US economy that California has become and about 30 million welfare cases. Cut out the cancer before it kills America. And while you’re at it, give them Chicago and NYC as well.
And Cleveland, Philadelphia and Detroit.
While BO is dismantling the military.
Will we now stop promoting this awful Rubio whose only claim to any seat is that he is a good speaker.
STOP with the Rubio talk.
Hatch rubio and McCain are not smort Republicans. They are stupid Rpublicans.
Rubio is not stupid, He might be working for the other side. We love him because he is a good speaker.
Who is “not smart” now?
