As his lies are being exposed daily, Marco and his team are losing their heads.
The panic among the amnesty pimps has reached hysterical proportions.
As conservatives increasingly discover how the 'Gang of Eight' amnesty bill would be an abject disaster for America, and also realize how Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has lied to them about its provisions, Rubio and his team have reacted with La Raza talking points, and now disgraceful race-baiting.
Case in point, Rubio's spokesperson Alex Conant - in a Twitter exchange with Washington Examiner columnist Conn Carroll, R- said, We havent had a cohort of people living permanently in US without full rights of citizenship since slavery.
Of course, to follow Conant's absurd and offensive comment, he doesn't only refer to illegal aliens. Hes also talking about any non-citizen who lives in this country permanently, including millions of Green Card holders. And as Carroll noted, if illegals are modern slaves, then...
Moreover, to illustrate its absurdity, if Conant saying that illegal aliens who don't become citizens are "slaves", then how does he characterize the 64% of 3.5 million illegal aliens who received amnesty in 1986 who never bothered to apply for citizenship? Are they keeping themselves in slavery?
Of course there is no comparison between slaves, who were brought and kept here against their will, with foreign nations who came here and stay here by choice. It is disgraceful to attack (soon to be former) allies by suggesting their insistence on enforcing our laws makes them racists, and insulting to minimize the harsh experience of millions of Black Americans by comparing them to border crossers and tourist visa violators.
Get used to it folks. As our side continues to hammer the amnesty pimps with inconvenient facts that undermine their lies, they will continue to become more unhinged. It is just disgraceful to see how Rubio is throwing away the credibility he spent 4 years to earn among conservatives, just to be Chuck Schumer's messenger boy.
No, they’re not like “slaves,” they can go home any time they want to.
They are, however, like invaders.
