Thursday marks the one-year anniversary of the start of President Obamas deferred deportation program for immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, which he authorized through executive authority last summer. As The Washington Post reported Tuesday, the Obama administration has granted more than 400,000 of those immigrants temporary legal status to work or go to school without fear of deportation.
Now, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is warning that the administration is likely to dramatically expand the program to cover the majority of the countrys 11 million undocumented immigrants if Congress fails to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
Rubio has been under fire as a key architect of a Senate-approved plan that would boost border security, expand the number of work visas for and offer a 13-year path to citizenship for immigrants who are in the nation illegally. As he defends his position to conservatives who oppose offering potential citizenship to those immigrants, Rubio argues that Obama can take executive action that would allow the immigrants to remain here legally no matter what Congress does.

So why are you working with the asshole, asshole?
So Rubio is worried Obama will do something illegal thru Executive, so lets make it legal for him
Did Rubio try to make it sound he opposes this?
We are a banana republic run by a tyrant...
That should make Rubio VERY happy. The more ILLEGALS, the better for him.
That other FReeper was right earlier.
Congress has been dissolved. It has completely abdicated it’s power to King Barack
Obama will lie, cheat, and steal regardless. It certainly won’t help matters to admit tens of millions of additional illegals in response.
The settlement of the Czechoslovakian problem, which has now been achieved is, in my view, only the prelude to a larger settlement in which all Europe may find peace. This morning I had another talk with the German Chancellor, Herr Hitler, and here is the paper which bears his name upon it as well as mine. Some of you, perhaps, have already heard what it contains but I would just like to read it to you: ' ... We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again.'
Later that day he stood outside 10 Downing Street and again read from the document and concluded:
My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.
Anyone else here feel like we’re being played? Oh wait ... everyone? Good. Cause we are.
It appears that the Kenyan and his ‘RAT comrades are going to force every Mexican National in Mexico to come here and sign up to be a U.S. citizen whether they like it or not. If you want to continue to come here and take a swing at the Big Pinata, you’re going to have to be a registered DemocRAT voter.
Yes Whatever Executive Orders can be signed by the President can be made invalid by the Congress.
In other words they can stop him any time they want. They don’t want.
This is the worst Congress in the history of our country.
The worst Supreme Court, The worst President.
And we my FRiends may be the worst citizens, as we haven’t yet risen up en masse with Tar and Feathers for the whole fugging bunch in Washington.
The GOP is not an opposition party. There is none.
The GOP is the enabling party.
And - so what Mr. Rubio ? It won’t be real law and when we are rid of obama ... the new President can just undo it by Executive Order or get Congress to cooperate and rescind all obama’s Executive Orders.
The only reason Obama can even imagine doing this is that he knows traitors in the Senate, like Marco Rubio, will do nothing to stop him.
In fact, this statement is just Rubio’s way of saying go right ahead, Obama, it’s all okie dokie with him.
“Rubio warns that Obama could expand deferred deportation to cover millions more immigrants”
Exactly what this open-borders shill wants.
Rubio’s just posturing to try to do some damage control with conservatives now that he’s been instrumental in getting Suckerberg’s bill passed.
The immigrants will be the future tax slaves of America supporting social security, and all the other “freebies” for the aging baby boomers...and the generations of lazy people...
Blacks and whites, not enough here willing to work, and or breed to meet the future tax requirements....
This is laughable on its face.
If it were the plan we'd be selectively importing skilled labor, not the illiterate poor who are an immediate drain on our resources and will likely be EITC filers their entire lives.
