Rubio: Obama will ‘basically legalize’ 11 million by executive order if immigration reform fails
dailycaller ^ | 8/13/12 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 08/14/2013 7:59:14 AM PDT by ColdOne

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio warned Tuesday that some on the Republican side of immigration reform could come up empty-handed if the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” plan fails.

In an appearance on WFLA’s “The Morning Show with Preston Scott” in Tallahassee, Fla., Rubio explained that President Barack Obama will be tempted to enact his own immigration reform measures by executive order if Congress does not pass an immigration bill. An Obama executive order would legalize 11 million undocumented immigrants, he said.

“I have been saying now for over a year I believe that this president tempted, will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress he will be tempted, to issue an executive order like he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen,” Rubio said. “We won’t get an E-Verify, we won’t get any border security — but he’ll legalize them. So what I have tried to do is come up with as best as possible, given who controls the Senate, a way to start this conversation to at least address some of these issues because it only gets worse as times goes on.”

That’s no way to run a legislative branch. We don’t react to threats of a tyrannical executive branch. The House and Senate set the policy and the executive carry it out...anything else needs a court challenge.

I know this is antiquated thinking, but it worked pretty well the previous 2+ centuries.

What a fricking appeasing, equivocating, dissembling traitor this man is. “If we don’t legalize 11 million (make that 30-50 Millions - the government lies) aliens, Herr Fricking Supreme Leader Obama will just do it by fiat. So we’d better make his actions legal, huh?”

Screw him, screw his supporters - you people need to find something other than Americans to call yourselves.

Rubio

It is Rubio’s job to protect the Constitution

It’s Rubio’s job to stop the President from doing this and he should do so on constitutional grounds. Not by expecting us to go along with his own Faustian deal

If th pres would be acting within the confines of the constitution then there would be no problem with this

The GOP is complicit whoever does not oppose this on constitutional grounds. They will be blamed

And the way BO operates, they will be the only ones blamed

Rubio will have his name and comb over all over this for generations

Let me play the devils advocate for a second.

Doesn't Obama (or any president)have a duty to ensure that there is no second tier citizenship status in this country? If congress won't act to ensure equal protection under the law, isn't it the duty of the president to make it so? Didn't Lincoln set precedent with the Emanciptation Proclamation?

Leave the border security question aside for a moment and I believe that with this Supreme Court, Obama has some legal grounds here on this amnesty question and I wouldn't be surprised if the democrats come full force with the Lincoln / Slavery / EP argument.

Shame on the spineless governors who will not act with the same impunity that Obama does!

So, Rubio says we need to pass a new law for amnesty, because if we don’t Obastard will simply break the law we have? What’s going to keep Obastard from breaking the new law?

Rubio really needs to shorten his name a little bit: Rube.

I agree.

At the very least, Rubio shows a complete misunderstanding or lack of respect for the separation of powers.

He's just going to roll over and die if Obama oversteps his bounds. Pretty gutless.

In my opinion, Rubio is a tragic figure. He explains our economic system--the market one, not the modified Marxism of the Obamanists--better than most other contemporary Republican Senators; but his position on immigration is indefensible, and shows a major misunderstanding of what is even fitting for a beneficiary of American hospitality.

While I fear that Rubio has already persisted in this folly too long to be politically resuscitated, I would still urge his constituents to have the sort of conversation with him on immigration, recommended earlier in Whither American Conservatism?

Please, do not anyone imagine that I am advocating that we compromise one iota on the immigration question. Certainly not! My gentler rebuke for Rubio is not a suggestion of any retreat on an issue absolutely essential to the preservation of the America won on the battlefield. But we need to try to win over anyone we can--that is try to bring Rubio to our position, not his present totally unacceptable one..

Rubio: Obama will ‘basically legalize’ 11 million by executive order if immigration reform fails

And Rubio's Senate immigration plan would 'basically legalize' 11 million by blanket amnesty (they are calling it something different this time -- protective status or some such, but a rose by any other name ... amnesty by any other name ...)

So, what is the difference, Marco?

Beside, they already have defacto amnesty because neither Congress nor the executive branch will enforce existing laws. So, what good are more laws going to do?

Most of us are more concerned about what you guy hide in the fine print and amendments in these 2000-page monstrosities. And that translates to: We don't trust any of you!

Well then let him do it. Let him be the one who gets the ire of the American people. Why in the hell do GOP seem to like draping albatrosses around their necks as if it is their responsibility to run point for bad left wing crap? What is happening is they are depressing their base and its starting to negatively affect the prospects for races this year and next.

. . to faithfully execute the laws . . .

I believe their argument would be that he (or anyone serving as president)would be in violation of their oath (or affirmation) with regards to the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.

Just stand by everyone - the SC just may get behind Obama on this - after the Obamacare ruling, would anyone be surprised? Didn't he already grant amnesty to 150,000 illegals before the 2012 election? - with nary a peep from the gelded republican ruling class in DC.

Didn't Lincoln set precedent with the Emanciptation Proclamation?

Uh no. The Union was at war with the Confederacy, and the Emancipation Proclamation only applied on Confederate territory. It only applied to the ten states that were in rebellion, and did not free all slaves.

Slavery as an institution was not officially abolished until the passage of the 13th Amendment in 1865, two years after the EP.

Congress can just go home.

We have a Dictatorship, where Congress is un-necessary, and NO ONE challenges The Messiah because of NSA Surveillance Wiretaps, Blackmail (like John Roberts), and State-Run-Media attacks on them if they object in "just going along".

We have NO Government representation for We The People, we have a Court System that enforces and expands the Law ONLY in furtherance of The Agenda, and Executive Orders are illegally used to make Laws, along with Executive Branch Regulatory Agencies (un-Elected) making Laws via Rules to further The Agenda, also.

Amnesty is a done-deal, however it's implemented, to get 10 Million more Agenda Voters by 2014.

Yes, the details . . I suspect that when the rivals appear on the 24 hour cable news shows, there won't be to much talk of the details - only the "grand vision of the idea" and how "we MUST do this now!!"

The republicrat followers of Obama in the House and Senate will lead the charge right over the cliff and any unintended consequences (if they're bad) will be laid squarely at the feet of the GOP

“Faithfully execute the laws” != “Ensure there are no second-class citizens.” That’s twisting the document. Roberts’ Obastardcare ruling showed me the government will twist any clause in the Constitution to fit the desired outcome. DC is lawless.

It hasn’t mattered what’s in the Constitution for some time, and if we don’t get back to it we’re doomed as a Nation.

Since Rubio’s plan for those 11 million illegals differs only in details from Obama’s, I fail to see what he’s getting all worked up about, other than beating his Democratic comrades in arms on the issue to the punch.
