Yo Rubio. YOU don't want the border secured. You're an amnesty first, enforcement never guy, just like the rest of your gang of 8 idiots. You shouldn't even be heard on this issue. If they elected a Republican majority, and they were like you or McCain, we'd be just as good having Democrat control. This Rubio guy is a total con man.

Rubio betrayed Florida BIG TIME with his constant illegal flip flop and no action at all as far as making Florida an illegal unfriendly state.

I agree with him on other issues but this particular issue is VERY important for me. I want illegals deported because our hospitals are being financially devoured .

Rubio lost my future vote

There isn't a single Cuban Republican in Miami who isn't PRO-Illegal .

Rubio is no different but many of us were conned because his campaign was on deporting illegals ASAP and making Florida a state which is not illegal friendly .

He did a 180 after being elected and to this day flip flops monthly .

Too bad because we thought we finally had someone who realized the disaster that illegals are to our hospitals and social services .

We now have about 1 million illegals and growing daily.

Why should illegals get amnesty ?

ZERO is what all illegals should get . Close the border and deport 100% of illegals .

I find it funny but scary how illegals are making any demands and want to cut a deal.

No deal at all, Deport 100% and close the border.

Well that depends on what state you are in.

Our initially supported Tea Party Governor and Rubio aren't winners if you subscribe to enforcing immigration laws .

I don't think any politicians in this state even care anymore and it is disheartening .

The is no problem with border security, it is the tea bagger excuse for not doing anything (which is something they have done very well for close to four years).
It's like saying they don't want to start bailing out the boat until all the water is out of the bilge.
The current wave of children are running into the arms of the border patrol.
Yes, but they don't qualify for the refugee status that the 2008 law demands. Obama once again is going outside the law for his political agenda. Obama's presidential library may well be in Levenworth.

Government paralegals ‘paid to do nothing’ rewarded with bonuses
By Elizabeth Harrington
Published August 05, 2014
Washington Free Beacon

Paralegals hired to work in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office were “paid to do nothing,” passing their time watching television, doing laundry, and shopping online, according to the Commerce Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG).
The OIG released an audit last week that revealed “deeply disturbing” abuse within the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), resulting in the waste of millions of taxpayer dollars in pay and bonuses to paralegals that had no work to do.

The office, which recently cancelled several Washington Redskins’ trademarks, hired 19 additional “Paralegal Specialists” in 2009, despite a lack of judges for them to work for. Management was aware of the problem, and instructed paralegals to bill hours spent watching TV or walking their dog as “Other Time.”

TYPICAL OF LIBERAL..........THEY GET PAID FOR NOTHING, Just like Obama.

Not true.

http://usa-the-republic.com/emergency%20power...

The United States went "Bankrupt" in 1933 and was declared so by President Roosevelt by Executive Orders 6073, 6102, 6111 and Executive Order 6260,[See: Senate Report 93-549, pgs. 187 & 594 under the "Trading With The Enemy Act" [Sixty-Fifth Congress, Sess. I, Chs. 105, 106, October 6, 1917], and as codified at 12 U .S.C.A. 95a. The several States of the Union then pledged the faith and credit thereof to the aid of the National Government, and formed numerous socialist committees, such as the "Council Of State Governments," "Social Security Administration" etc., to purportedly deal with the economic "Emergency." These Organizations operated under the "Declaration Of INTERdependence" of January 22, 193, and published some of their activities in "The Book Of The States." The 1937 Edition of The Book Of The States openly declared that the people engaged in such activities as the Farming/Husbandry Industry had been reduced to mere feudal "Tenants" on their Land.[Book Of The States, 1937, pg. 155] This of course was compounded by such activities as price fixing wheat and grains [7 U.S.C.A. 1903], quota regulation I7 U.S.C.A. 1371], and livestock products [7 U.S.C.A. 1903], which have been held consistently below the costs of production; interest on loans and inflation of the paper "Bills of Credit"; leaving the food producers and others in a state of peonage and involuntary servitude, constituting the taking of private property, for the benefit and use of others, without just compensation.

Read the rest for yourself.

“I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK? Do I need to say more?”— Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), August 10, 2010
Harry Reid was asked if he had a message for Sen. Marco Rubio, and Sen. Reid responded "don't forget who you are." In other words, you are a "Latino," and you should act like a "Latino."

There are good Tea Party candidates who stand firmly on closing the border and deporting all the invading illegals .

Rubio is not one of them, he flip flops non stop but to say vote out ALL Tea Party is insane as many are doing what we elected them to do .

It is not their fault that they are fighting sell out RINO's .

Actually what you have described is what I see all over Miami and I am not speaking of legal non English speaking Hispanics .

EVERY politician and official here looks the other way with countless big cleaning and maintenance operations in malls, shopping centers , city pools ,etc hire illegals below min wage.

This is actually spreading through out the state .

You must approved of the illegals picketing the WH for their rights. They are ILLEGALS and have NO RIGHTS in America until they become citizens. This is the scum that is here NOW. We are to bend over backwards to provide for these people when we can not get our MARINE out of MEXICO. Go to MEXICO and protest our Marine being locked up and see what happens to you.
