If You’re Thinking About Voting for Marco Read This First…

Marco Rubio is a very attractive candidate for a whole variety of reasons.  He’s also completely unacceptable to me, because of the Gang of Eight.  As of today, Marco is still insisting it was a good bill.

Instead of rejecting the bill’s policies, Rubio defended proposal, which would have tripled green card dispensations, doubled foreign workers visa-issuances, granted amnesty to the illegal immigrant population and gutted interior enforcement. Rubio explained that his La Raza-backed bill was “the best that could be done” at the time to “fix our immigration laws.”

The Gang of Eight was a bill that was, that was dealt with three years ago. It was an effort to fix our immigration laws. It was the best that could be done in a Senate that was controlled by [Democratic Sen.] Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) at the time. And then the hope was that the House would take it up and make it better. But it was a way to start that.

There are smiles all around as immigration reform legislation is outlined by the Senate's bipartisan "Gang of Eight", on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, April 18, 2013. From left to right are Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. The legislation would dramatically remake the U.S. immigration system, ushering in new visa programs for low- and high-skilled workers, requiring a tough new focus on border security, instituting a new requirement for all employers to check the legal status of their workers, and installing a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants in the country illegally.

Rubio did not explain why a bill supported unanimously by Senate Democrats, the White House, nearly every House Democrat, and nearly every progressive open borders group, was the “best” outcome for Republicans.

The bill, supported by both of Arizona’s turncoat, worthless Senators was an amnesty package that would have brought in about 50 million new Democratic voters over the next ten years.

 

If Marco thinks that’s the best we could do he’s the wrong guy to replace Barack Obama.
