In a telephone interview with news commentator Rush Limbaugh today, Republican Senator Marco Rubio said we have only two options in dealing with illegal aliens: either legalize them or maintain the status quo; i.e., do nothing.

What about 8 USC 1227, Mr. Rubio? Thatís the law that says that they are deportable aliens. Money is appropriated each year for that purpose (8 USC 1554).

Rubio comes from Florida where illegal immigration has never been a problem. If a Cuban sets foot on our shores, he is immediately accorded (legal) refugee status. Contrast that with the Southwestern States where they deal with all of Latin America, and some from the Middle East, Europe and the Far East. That is not the same as guarding our shores from an island nation with a 50-mile water buffer, and though some of those (Cubans) are detained for a while, none will ever be deported. Those who reach our shore from Cuba are automatically legalized, even if they have a criminal record. We cannot deport anyone to Cuba because we do not have diplomatic relations with them.

As I see it, Marco Rubio has two options: He must either become a Democrat, or introduce a bill to rescind 8 USC 1227 if he has no intention of proposing enforcement. 8 USC 1227 is much less Draconian than the bill he is proposing to replace it--after legalizing all the aliens, of course.

Conservatives will not support an amnesty advocate for national office. Right now Rubio is preaching to the same choir as Democrat Chuck Schumer: to the dumbed-down, "low information" citizens. Can Rubio be so naive as to think that he is not showing contempt for the intelligence of the conservatives in this country? We know that Schumer has no respect for the intelligence of the voters; after all, his political party now controls a majority nationwide--a majority of "low information" voters, that is, and that's all that counts with him or other Democrats.

Every amnesty has been called something other than amnesty, and each one (3, since 1986) has caused more problems than it has solved. There is no reason to believe that the present proposed amnesty for illegal aliens will engender respect for our immigration laws, any more than those of the past did. Amnesties reward law breakers and punish those who obey the laws--by making them wait longer for their visas.

Not many disagree that the Immigration system is broken in this country.

What we saw played out in Boston - people allowed into the country under asylum with no background
checks what so ever is exactly what is happening
on the Mexico border and maybe even on the Canadian border on a daily basis.

Immigration that is verifiable,approved and legal
is the goal.

Illegal immigration of any nature is against what
our founding principles were based on.

Time to step up and make a plan that works for
America not the illegals seeking to come here
outside the legal process.

By the way remember the last reform - were gonna build 360 miles of double fence - only 26 miles to
date - another lie from the dumb as craps.
