Qué Pasa in Immigration: Marco Rubio, And a House Immigration Bill

quepasa“Qué Pasa” is our weekly roundup of news, opinion, and links from Spanish-Language online news publications:

In this week in Spanish language media: outlets like La Opinión discussed Marco Rubio’s stall on immigration reform and speculated about his motives. On the one hand, Rubio promises to be a leader in passing immigration reform and could be the GOP’s saving grace in winning back Latino voters. On the other, he spends much of his time appealing to the ultra-right-wing of his party and now appears to be following the lead of anti-immigrant Senators like Jeff Sessions and Chuck Grassley in asking for a slow legislative process for immigration reform.

Rubio’s motives? According to La Opinón, he wants to keep the support of Latino voters who want immigration reform, while remaining the darling of conservative Tea Partiers who don’t want reform. Rubio can’t have it both ways. He can’t sidle up to anti-immigrant opponents whose support he might need for the presidential primaries in 2016, while claiming to support the Latino and immigrant communities he would surely need to win a general election.

Also this week, several outlets including La Opinión, Telemundo, and Univisión, covered the NYT story about the upcoming House immigration bill. The bill is said to have three potential paths to citizenship, one for DREAMers and agricultural workers, one for those who have US citizen family members or those who qualify based on employment, and one for those who accept that they violated the law, pay back taxes, and learn English. This last group would have to wait 10 years for a permanent residency but would not have to leave the country.

Lori Montenegro, a reporter for Telemundo, interviewed Mario Díaz Balart about the bill draft and the legislative battle still ahead.“To accomplish something this controversial and complicate,d we think that we have to do it calmly, quietly, and without emotions to try and get a bipartisan agreement,” Díaz-Balart said.”Without getting into many details, we’ve been able to resolve many of the difficult issues. We still have some issues left, but they’re not the issues we usually hear about from the community.”

Mayela -- What do you mean he can't have it both ways?
ILLEGAL ALIENS want to have it both ways. They want to march around in a country where they don't belong demanding their "rights". They come here for one purpose and that is to steal jobs and benefits from Americans. They want to live here but they want to send money they earn in this country back "home".

How about one of these solutions:
1) The U.S. immediately starts enforcing all of our immigration laws. That includes the fines and penalties against employers and landlords for aiding and abetting ILLEGAL ALIENS. We enforce them for 5 years before any reform is discussed.


2) we immediately adopt and enforce the immigration and deportation laws of Mexico.
