How come every time Marco Rubio appears on television I have to remind myself he’s not Joe Biden? Which always makes me shiver, go YUCK and run for the shower.
Look, I’m tired of beating up on Marco Rubio, but he’s flimflamming us on immigration reform.
I have never bought into the Oh My God, we’re giving 11 million Mexicans de facto amnesty by not legalizing them! argument. Right, Marco, the nation is in imminent danger of the used-lawnmower market collapsing, if we don’t rectify this social evil now.
In the first place, Republicans should have never entered into discussions on immigration reform until they had a border bill. You’d think they would have learned after 40 years of buying into what is essentially a Democratic Party enrollment drive.
Secondly, Hispanic immigration is a smokescreen. Immigration reform must address immigration across the board, legal and illegal.
Mexican illegals are not to blame.
The government could solve a great deal of the Mexican immigration problem by creating a guest-worker program and easing border restrictions with Mexico. From there you simply declare a real war on drugs and start killing drug dealers who violate our borders.
Before we take on the legalization of 11 million Mexicans — thus satisfying the Democrats’ dearth of qualified gardeners — it would behoove us to address the millions of legal potential Muslim radicals from Iraq, Chechnya, Somalia and all points East the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations thought we just couldn’t live without.
Let’s not forget the Chinese, either. You know, they’re the guys who always score high on SATs, graduate in the top one percent, and either start up a dry cleaners or rush back to the China to hack our corporate and national secrets?
Ted Cruz is likely to lose this debate but you have to love the guy for his passion.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill and send Washington a “strong signal” of the grassroots opposition to the bill.
“This is urgent,” Cruz wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border.”
“The Senate debate is in the final stages and we need to send Washington a strong signal of the overwhelming grassroots opposition to this amnesty bill from Americans across the country,” Cruz explained.
I hope Cruz is successful, but establishment Republicans are convinced amnesty will guarantee a larger block of the future Hispanic vote. Hey, it could work. Look at the splendid results they’ve achieved with black Americans by caving in on welfare and Medicare.
