Posted on 02/08/2013 5:00:32 PM PST by Olog-hai
Marco Rubios softening stance toward immigration reform boils down to his mom, a new profile of the fast-rising Florida senator reveals.
Dont mess with the immigrants, my son, Oriales Garcia Rubio told her youngest son during a Dec. 21 phone call, Time magazine reports. Illegal immigrants, she said, are human beings just like us, and they came for the same reasons we came. To work. To improve their lives.
Rubio took his mothers words to heart, and says they are shaping his work on immigration.
I have to balance that humanity with reality, he said. We have immigration laws. They have to be followed. But yeah, she reminded me that theres a human element to this as well. As a policymaker, you have to strike a balance.

Yes, they are human beings just like us. And they have homes. Their home countries have immigration laws just like we do. They don’t let just anyone cross over and take up residence at will either. They understand that immigrants to their countries have to follow the law, and its silly to imagine it should be different here.
The mother of a U.S. Senator advocating his son ignore his oath of office - and he does. He might as well be a ‘rat.
So, Rubio’s mom told him this, before or after, she told him that they didn’t flee Castro and Communism....but fled Batista and Capitalism?
Only Liberals and Fools consider Rubio a conservative. He is an Open Border/Pro-Illegal/Anti-American
If we were just like them, we’d be emigrating illegally to their land, though.
Gotta say that Calderon (the hypocrite) was just like the “evil righties” here, i.e. in building a border fence between Mexico and Guatemala . . . yet comes to the USA and criticizes our “low” in regards to illegals coming into the USA from Mexico.
I have no idea why there are these illegal alien advocates who are so blind to the fact these people have citizenship and a right to be returned to their country of origin.
It's time to go!
The greater good on behalf of the next tens of millions of refugees from the next great war or natural disaster demands this be done ~ else all that good well on which those future refugees need to temporarily depend just won't be there and they will needlessly suffer and die.
This is right out of the Romney play book such as when he said his mother was the reason he was pro-abortion.
The truth is Rubio has always been pro amnesty. He’s been for giveaways to foreigners for so long, his mother must have changed his mind when he was a baby.
Sorry - we already elected a Bozo. We need a strong Conservative who can man up & bring this country back to greatness.
Just being hispanic - with no core values does NOT cut it!!!
I love my folks, but I’m not interested in dropping my principles because they both love Obama.
Our problems started with the 1965 Immigration Act. We have allowed Cubans in their rafts for years. Then we allowed certain types who fought with us, and; in general, we allowed ourselves to let the sociologists to play their PC MC games. Our current problems in our immigration policy are tied to the left’s social and political goals.We let South Viets in and denied Montagnards who pulled their weight. We have allowed fools to be administrators.
And to hell with American citizens and their children, son. Let them pay for the illegal immigrants because... well just because.
And this is why the president of the US should be born on US soil to two American citizens. There must be NO conflict of interest or split allegiances!
Mama’s boy is no conservative, not even a loyal American.
We can be a nation of laws, or a nation of demagogues.
You can only choose one.
You can't have it both ways.
I’ve been wary of him for a long time. As far as I’m concerned, he is now toast.
According to documents posted by others here on PR, Marco Rubio's parents were not American citizens at the time of his birth. Therefore, the senator was not a Natural Born Citizen according to the Vattel definition, although he is certainly a native-born citizen.
Nothing personal against Rubio here; he's been a good senator and he is constitutionally qualified for that position. But if he attempts a run for the presidency, you can bet that he'll face a constitutional legal challenge.
And, speaking of mama, it's good to learn that he is not only a false flag conserative but a mama's boy (wussie) as well.
Hey: My mother was thrilled to have her photo taken with Bill Clinton but, while I was glad he didn't hit on her, I didn't decide to support the SOB because she said so.
Check out “A House of Cards” on Netflix if you want to see what all the Washington politicians are really like.
Has there ever been a nation in the history of the civilized world whose government so flagrantly pandered to immigrants, especially invaders who came in without that government's consent? Tolerance in one form or another is one thing, but pandering and inviting them to goodies at the public trough is quite another.
Sorry, does not compute. You can't send a man or woman abroad for purposes of state and deny them the rights their progeny would have had if they just stayed home!
Rubio is the new hispanic RINO de jeur to replace retreads such as McCain and Romney
“House of Cards” is great. I am at episode 11. I heard it might be renewed for a Season 2.
Please see my post # 18.
Don't expect a Rubio presidential or vice presidential candidacy to go constitutionally unchallenged.
The fact that the Pubbie establishment played deaf, dumb and blind to Obama's lack of constitutional qualification for POTUS doesn't necessarily mean that the 'Rats will return the favor when and if the shoe is on the other foot. Or a Rubio presidential candidacy could possibly be challenged on constitutional grounds by a Republican rival.
So, what about the other four or more billion human beings around the world who'd also like to improve their lives?
Just a lot of emotion driven nonsense that can result in policies that will ruin this nation.
Rubio's just one more weak panderer who's joined with those who might well sink the Republican party once and for all. He's more irritating by the day.
Nothing would please me more.
Don’t ever forget that MARCO voted for the NDAA and the confirmation of John Kerry! That’s enough for me.
The Roman Empire, right before it imploded and plunged the world into centuries of dark ages?
yep... hiring foreigners to man their defenses certainly turned out to be a bad idea...
My own ancestral Breton people said "Merlin" had to replant the grapes in France ~ all the way from Nantes to the upper reaches of the Rhone Valley.
so that by itself would have wiped out Roman civilization in the region.
The climate anomaly set off a good thousand years of seriously reduced expectations in Western Europe, and actually devastated Southern Europe economically ~ and it also wiped out civilization for a good 300 years in China!
By 600 AD just about the only folks with a fairly intact economy and a supply of gold were living in Petra (in what is now Jordan).
Wow actual human beings, imagine.
It’s just astounding how absurd this crap is.
No, Mrs. Rubio, they did not all come for the same reasons you did. Nor can you know that because no one screened who these people are and they broke our laws to sneak in here.
Yeah Mrs Rubio you tell him. Dont mess with me and other immigrants...
But if you want him to mess with anyone tell him to mess with the illegal aliens...
They should be messed with...
"Mind you, we don't want to become Americans like the others did, just live like them in our brand new barrios."
Wow, the Hitlery First crowd is out in force attacking our #1 Tea Party Conservative, Marco Rubio! The same losers that brought us Obama are now trying to tell us to follow them. No thanks.
amnesty will bankrupt this country and guarantee a Dem majority forever.
Those losers are worried about that kind of thing.
But I guess there are more important things, he has an R by his name after all.
Rubio’s plan does not include amnesty, non at all. Expect the Hillary lovers to go under cover and try to split our party again. I see the same names as I did six months ago. I expect the anti tea party trolls to attack him every day in every way because the know if Hitlery loses the Hispanic vote their Party is dead.
It will be amnesty before it ever gets to a vote. Everyone knows it. Just because they refuse to use the word doesn’t change that.

Nominating Rubio with the expectation of winning the Hispanic vote is insane.
He may well be the best candidate, but thinking he'll have a major and positive impact on the Hispanic vote is unrealistic.
Rubio's ethnicity is Cuban. Which will cut no ice among ethnic Mexicans, Puerto Ricans or Spaniards. It's like nominating an ethnic German in order to appeal to the ethnic Irish -- because they're both white.
“Each of the proposals contains an amnesty for the dozen million or so illegals already in the country, and none of them contains adequate security provisions.”
Like you, I don’t appreciate anyone whizzing down my leg then telling me it’s raining ... to anyone here who insists that the RINO/CINOs don’t expect amnesty with their “comprehensive immigration reform”—go lay out in the yard if you’re going to act like a t**d.
Rubio has principles, he is leading on this issue and amnesty is not on the table. He got four Dem senators to sign on to his plan. When you see people attacking Rubio on this site know that they are working for Hitlery or are acting as useful idiots for the communist.
That's what Rubio wants as well.
Fact is, demographic changes haven't exactly been in our favor. Rubio is a solid conservative --except when it comes to immigration. And while we can agree or disagree, what Rubio wants to do is take the immigration issue off the table so that the Democrats can't co-opt it. He's trying to save conservatism by making it palatable to non-white voters --voters who will decide elections.
This isn't 1980 anymore. Getting 59% of the white vote just doesn't cut it these days. We've got to draw others in. This is what Rubio is trying to do
Let me put it this way, if you think having Democrats on your side is a good thing (worth citing) and then accuse your critics of working for Democrats, you are living in the Twilight Zone.
Why didn’t you cite the laudatory TIME magazine cover to bolster your contention that his critics work for Dems?
Good point, faulty conclusion. 60% of Germans, Irish, all whites voted for the white candidate. Hispanic blood is a lot more thicker than the bogus, people of color, that the Dems are trying to sell.
The GOPe will lose more votes than gain them by rewarded foreign invading criminals at the expense of American citizens.
