After nearly a year of touting his ideas for immigration reform, pro-amnesty Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) began releasing details of his legislative proposal last week. While he has not released specific language, Rubio's plan already consists of the typical open borders lobby reforms, running the gamut from a path to legalization for illegal aliens to increased legal immigration and worksite enforcement provisions. (Wall Street Journal, Jan. 14, 2013)
Sen. Rubio insists his proposal to legalize the roughly 11-12 million illegal aliens in the U.S. "is not blanket amnesty or a special pathway to citizenship." (Id.) Yet, to qualify under this proposal, Sen. Rubio described the exact same eligibility requirements found in the 2006 and 2007 amnesty bills. He said:
They would have to undergo a background check. They would be fingerprinted. They would have to pay a fine, pay back taxes, maybe even do community service. They would have to prove they’ve been here for an extended period of time. They understand some English and are assimilated. Then most of them would get legal status and be allowed to stay in this country. (Id.)
are we a nation of laws or not?
I am so upset, this is horrible,but it looks likeis going to happen...
if they are for amnesty then they are new world order and we both know what that means.
How unfair to all of the people who have waited to immigrate legally,
How unfair to all of us taxpayers that will have to bear this burden.
How unfair that we have to take in those who are mostly uneducated and low skill when usually immigration is skewed to take the best .
Our jobs have gone to these countries so what's left over here we will have to compete for. It doesn't in any way seem right.
Every other country gave up the anchor baby birthright citizenship but us.
What is these politician's angle? Is it just to follow their NWO masters?
I am so surprise at Rubio, but I guess that is all goes down to him being hispanic and he is mostly thinking about his own. All of us that came the legal way recognize the importance of following procedure...
