Sarah Palin rips Rubio on immigration
The Hill ^ | June 24, 2013 | By Cameron Joseph

Posted on 06/24/2013 1:17:12 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Sarah Palin criticized Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) by name on Monday for the Senate immigration bill. Palin, in a lengthy Facebook post, blasts the bill as "amnesty," says it won't secure America's borders and compares the Senate's process toward passing it to Democrats' passage of ObamaCare in 2010.

She criticized Rubio and other "amnesty suppoters" for opposing an amendment sponsored by Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) that would have required the completion of more of the border fence before illegal immigrants could receive registered provision immigrant status.

"It's beyond disingenuous for anyone to claim that a vote for this bill is a vote for security," Palin wrote. "Look no further than the fact that Senator Rubio and amnesty supporters nixed Senator Thune's amendment that required the feds to finally build part of a needed security fence before moving forward on the status of illegal immigrants who've already broken the law to be here," she wrote. "This bill isn’t about fixing problems; it's about amnesty at all costs."

The Monday post comes just hours after she posted an article highlighting Rubio's 2010 comments that an "earned path to citizenship is basically code for amnesty," deriding him as a flip-flopper. The attacks are a sign that should Rubio run for president, she could emerge as a vocal detractor of his campaign.

Palin, now a Fox News contributor who continues to hold sway with conservative activists, warns that the bill will lead to a conservative revolt against both Democrats and centrist Republicans in the 2014 elections.

We need to identify and target the liars and turn coats like Rubio, Heller, Ayotte, Brewer, etc. just as we did in 2010.

The Tea Party needs to show its capabilities again. That's what it is going to take to turn this around if anything short of a revolution is going to do it.

Stop Amnesty.

Tell congressmen we don’t want ANY bill passed, no matter what they promise. This bill is Amnesty for 30 million illegals, and a 1000 page bill that brings in 80 million 3rd world immigrants. The bill will destroy the U.S. and will turn the USA into a socialist state as is the democrats/Obama’s plan.

If the Senate passes an amnesty for illegal aliens, it will be important that the House refuses to pass any immigration legislation in 2013! Stop the amnesty legislation!”

The Rats and RINOs do not realize they are opening Pandoras Box. Motivated Conservatives in an off cycle election can do a lot of damage, especially now that they are victims of government abuse.

Tie that around the necks of the establishment.

We need to tell our reps in congress to reject this amnesty bill shoved down our throats in the dark of night.

I joined facebook just so I could read Sarah's posts without any filtering. Here is the text of her latest post. I hope it is legal to post it here:
Holes in the Border As Big As the Holes in Their Amnesty Bill

Just like they did with Obamacare, some in Congress intend to “Pelosi” the amnesty bill. They’ll pass it in order to find out what’s in it. And just like the unpopular, unaffordable Obamacare disaster, this pandering, rewarding-the-rule-breakers, still-no-border-security, special-interests-ridden, 24-lb disaster of a bill is not supported by informed Americans.

I am an ardent supporter of legal immigration. I’m proud that our country is so desirable that it has been a melting pot making a diverse people united as the most exceptional nation on earth for over two centuries. But I join every American with an ounce of common sense insisting that any discussion about immigration must center on a secure border. The amnesty bill before the Senate is completely toothless on border security.

It’s beyond disingenuous for anyone to claim that a vote for this bill is a vote for security. Look no further than the fact that Senator Rubio and amnesty supporters nixed Senator Thune’s amendment that required the feds to finally build part of a needed security fence before moving forward on the status of illegal immigrants who’ve already broken the law to be here. And if shooting down the border fence wasn't proof enough, they blew another chance by killing Senator Paul’s “Trust But Verify” amendment which required the completion of a fence in five years and required Congress to vote on whether the border is actually secure before furthering any immigration measures. And then they blew it yet again, nixing Senator Cornyn’s “Results” amendment, which also required border enforcement standards. Now the Senate’s pro-amnesty crowd is offering a fig leaf to security via the Corker-Hoeven Amendment, but this is really nothing more than empty promises. It’s amnesty right now and border security… eh, well, someday.

If this bill was genuinely concerned with border security, it might include practical solutions for those states that live with the problem every single day. Pass-through grants could be given to border states to actually build a fence. The most responsive and responsible level of government is the most local, and since governors accept pass-throughs all the time, this is a workable solution. We could also free up more federal lands along the border to be privatized. The farmers and ranchers would have a clear incentive to keep their private property secure from the flow of illegal immigrants and/or other illegal activities trafficked across the border onto land they’d cultivate. There are plenty of other commonsense solutions, but this bill isn’t about fixing problems; it’s about amnesty at all costs.

When every commonsense, concrete, and verifiable measure to secure the border is stripped away, despite politicians’ promises, what are we supposed to rely on to ensure that our currently unsecured border will be fixed in the future? If D.C. expects us to just sit back and “trust” them despite our permanent political class and Washington bureaucrats proving themselves so very untrustworthy, then I have a bridge to somewhere in Alaska to sell them. Our government is awash in one scandal after another involving blatant lies and violations of our basic liberties, and the leader of the pack ventures out on one road trip after another to avoid accountability.

Just like they did for Obamacare, the permanent political class is sugaring this bill with one goody after another to entice certain senators to vote for it. Look no further than page 983 of the bill, which contains a special visa exemption for foreign seafood workers in the 49th state despite huge unemployment numbers in the American workforce. This is obviously a hidden favor designed to buy the votes of Alaska Senators Murkowski and Begich.

And just like Obamacare, this amnesty bill fails on every level of economic sanity and sane reform. It offers no solutions. It will barely slow the flow of illegal immigration, which means we can expect millions and millions of new illegal aliens in coming years. Sort of what happened when we passed amnesty in 1986 without securing our borders first.

According to the CBO, the bill won’t stop illegal immigration, but it will drive down wages for average hardworking Americans. These would be the same blue-collar working class voters of every ethnicity who chose to sit home in 2012 instead of turning out to vote in the swing states we needed to carry in order to stop Barack Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation” of America. I note this just as a helpful reminder to those who believe the hyperventilated new hype claiming that conservatives need to support this bill in order to win future elections. That’s 100% wrong. The crony capitalists in D.C. and their corporatist friends on Wall Street might think this amnesty boondoggle is a great idea, but the average American worker in our middle class who'll soon see lower wages is the one left out in the cold, along with those hard working immigrants who followed the rules and are working here legally.

Passing this bill with an unsecured border and within a growing welfare state under Barack Obama is economic insanity. Have people already forgotten that our bankrupt government is running up massive unsustainable deficits every year? We can’t afford to pay the piper now, much less the trillions of dollars more in welfare and entitlements for the millions who are here illegally today that will be granted this bill’s benefits. According to the Heritage Foundation, the bill provides only a temporary delay in granting illegal immigrants eligibility for all U.S. welfare and entitlement programs. We’re looking at an explosion of costs in the very near future. There is no way to pay for the added untold millions of new enrollees in these growing government programs. Pass this, Congress, and Obama will have succeeded in fundamentally transforming America.

Again, I am supportive of legal immigration and am as sympathetic as the next person to the aspirations of people who come here to work hard and live a better life than the poverty and unfree environments they left behind. So many are drawn here because we are an exceptional nation where freedom provides an equal opportunity for everyone to work hard and make something of themselves. But a key part of American exceptionalism is the rule of law. Border security is fundamental to the rule of law, as is incentivizing those who follow the legal path to citizenship instead of punishing them by promoting lawbreakers. This is non-negotiable.

It’s time our lawmakers remember that we are a sovereign nation of laws. This bill ignores that, and ignores the will of the people. The continued porous border goes against what politicians assured us was in this mountain-high bill, and in typical D.C. style it flies in the face of what many politicians campaigned on. I heard their campaign promises. You heard them, too.

It’s time for concerned Americans to flood our legislators’ phone lines with the input they need to hear from We the People. Join the mama grizzlies who are rearing up tirelessly to swat away false claims that amnesty is a good thing. Michelle Malkin rightly said the issue is not secure the border first, it’s “secure the border. Period.” Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter have also offered superb warnings on amnesty’s economic impacts to the middle class.

As the Senate moves to pass amnesty, the only bright spot in this travesty is the rallying revolution we can look forward to. For just as opposition to Obamacare became a rallying cry for the 2010 midterm elections, opposition to this fundamentally transforming amnesty bill will galvanize the grassroots in next year’s elections. And 2014 is just around the corner.

Palin’s tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (D-Fla.) flip-flop over amnesty for illegal immigrants .

 During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.

Glad to hear it. I quit subscribing to GBTV because Glenn was championing Rubio so much months ago. When I cancelled, it wrote I was cancelling because by endorsing Rubio, Glenn was endorsing amnesty. And I couldn't support that stance. Maybe I'll resubscribe now...

But she matches my philosophy on this precept by precept. Way to go, Sarah!

If he even bothers to respond to you, he will most likely tell me he doesn’t need anyone to help him.

Yep. Beck let Rubio have it, saying Rubio had essentially deceived the voters, and was showing his true colors siding with Schumer over the people who got him elected. It was some of the harshest criticism I’ve heard yet, and Beck was very clear about his disappointment because of how much he had liked and supported Rubio.

Thank you for all the comments.  I don't care if they're good or bad.  I don't really matter much in the overall scheme of things.

What does matter is the health and good standing of our republic.  To that end, it matters a great deal what our heros stand for, and how clear it is what they stand for.

I have never ducked a certain individual's threads.  I merely leave their supporters alone most of the time.  I still think it is healthy to raise issues from time to time, asking folks to do some soul-searching.  About ten days ago, I entered two threads for the first time this year, holding people's feet to the fire.  That is my job.  It is supposed to be every Conservative's job.

At times it is said that I attack our own more than I attack Obama.  After reading 20,000 to 1 complaints against Obama here, perhaps some will understand why I don't believe another voice is needed on that topic.  Some won't.

At times it is said I am too hard on our own.  It is our own that will be the only people who fight back against people like Obama.  They must be sound, or they do us no favors by fronting for our beliefs.  We have seen all too many of them actually willing to push Leftist legislation.  It is NOT my duty to ignore this, and be still in the presence of yet another person who claims to believe as we do, while I remain unconvinced of it.

My recent comments about a certain political figure addressed their last known stance on Undocumented Democrats, their legal residency, pathway to citizenship, and the ability to work here.  Specicially I stated I didn't see why they would object to the current immigration bill winding it's way through Congress, because their last known statements seemed to mirror this bill in a number of ways.  I made these comment prior to this figure saying they don't support the current bill.  And while what they have said does comfort me, it causes me to be perplexed none the less.

Folks, it is my duty to stand up for what is right.  It is also my duty to make sure as many people as possible are subjected to reasoned thought that may go against the current and therefore must be heard. It is vitally important that people with a voice explain in detail what good policy is.  If I had the high visibility that certain people who are popular here have, it would be even more important for me to get "truth" out.

Enter into this situation a person who has favored instant legalization through registration, a pathway to citizenship, and work permits.  I can hear this person say it with my own ears, if I want to.  And yet, this person has now stated they don't support the current immigration bill.

If my policy had been one thing, and then it became another thing, wouldn't it be my duty to explain why?  Wouldn't it be best for my followers and others to be able to follow what line of reasoning led to this objection, change of direction, or non-change of direction?

How would I motivate others to change their minds and follow my lead, if I didn't explain what transition took place for me?

This is all I have been saying since this person came out and objected to the current immigration bill.  Why?  What has changed?

I want to know if this is akin to Romney saying he doesn't support Obamacare and wants to replace it with his own plan.  I don't want someone I support saying they don't like this immigration bill, and want to replace it with a better one of their own.  What we have on the books right now, is sound and enforcable.  We just need to do it.

So Conservatives, in conclusion I would only ask that you hold our leaders feet the fire in the same manner you hold mine to that fire.

I will always attempt to be as frank and honest with you as I can.  I will leave no doubt where I stand.  I will try to be fare to our candidates.  I only aske them to be fare with us.

Where do you stand on undocumented democrats?
Do you still support instant legalization through registration?
Do you still support a pathway?
Do you still support them remaining here and working?

If the answers to all these are yes, or even if they are not, plase explain with enough clarity that nobody will wonder where you stand with regard to these people, and the American people you wish to represent.

We have 40 million U. S. Citizens out of work.  Is there any compassion for them?

Is it compassionate to U. S. Citizens to countenance a fix to help undocumented democrats, before fixing what ails us first?

I am tired.  I have been hawking this issue for 20 years.  I've seen it gamed every which way it could be.

It's all very simple really.

Do we wish to remain a sovereign republic, or do we wish to simply give up and hand the keys to it over to foreign nationals?

Clarity is not our enemy folks.  It's the last gasp of true loyalists to this nation.

Are you with me Sarah?  I'd like to know.

Tell congressmen we don’t want ANY bill passed, no matter what they promise. This bill is Amnesty for 30 million illegals, and a 1000 page bill that brings in 80 million 3rd world immigrants. The bill will destroy the U.S. and will turn the USA into a socialist state as is the democrats/Obama’s plan.

You're right - bump this thread to the top....

Sarah changed her mind, in fact she wrote a long article yesterday about why she is against amnesty for illegals..its posted somewhere here, its a great article and it explains her position on the issue.
Unfortunately we have too many RINOS in the Senate so unfortunately illegals are going to get their amnesty, in many ways the GOP are the same as the Democrat party, just better dressed, but they share the same ideology

Our only hope is the House. And the real conservatives there.

We need to call and keep up the pressure. They all WILL be up for re-election next year. I’m making sure my congressman knows I will vote against him if he votes for amnesty under any name.

Is the GOP stupid or do they just have a death wish? They will never be elected again once these illegals get to vote.

Here is the article good thing I have it in my archive :-)
The GOP does have a death wish, they think that by passing this that illegals will vote Republican..that is NEVER EVER going to happen..a person doesnt need to be a genius to figure that out..illegals will vote Dem to keep on getting the free goodies they have been getting til now.
The GOP wants to Out-Commie the left, and they are doing one heck of a job attempting to do that

Probably they have been bought off with promises of extravagantly compensated sinecures when they leave office. I think that's how they got to Brewer.

Might be war. We’re getting to the point that our own “representatives” are subverting the Constitutional system for their own benefit. I think I’ll see if any publicly-traded companies are still in the hemp rope business. It may be a good time buy stock in them, along with roofing tar suppliers and poultry farms.

The immigration issue separates the patriots from the sleazy special interest sellouts.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Nice picture!

Hay I found the following from one of your posts, Palin's position on amnesty in 2009:

http://blogtown.portlandmercury.com/BlogtownPDX/archives/2009/12/03/sarah-palin-on-the-lars-larson-show Dec 3, 2009

LARS: The amnesty proposal that was defeated in Congress — in your view, was that amnesty for illegals and would you back amnesty for a path to citizenship, as the current president calls it?

SARAH PALIN: No, I’m not for amnesty. Let’s ratchet this down quite simply to remember what we’re referring to. Illegal aliens are called “illegal” for a reason. We need to secure our borders and I am not for amnesty. And there are humane ways to deal with the 11-13 million illegal aliens who are in our country right now, but if they’re not going to follow the rules, they need to get out.
