Marco Rubio did NOT include expunging the SPECIAL PRIVILEGES Cubans get with the FAST TRACK STATUS to PERMANENT US RESIDENCE in the current immigration bill.

Cubans are not EQUAL when it comes to Immigration, they get SPECIAL FAST TRACK STATUS, still.

The problem with America is that certain groups are more special than other groups.

There will NEVER be equity in America. There will always be those who are disenfranchised.

And to be sure, if you do not have the economic power, political power or religious power, you are a lemming in the waters of America and elsewhere.

That's the point of "equality."

Some people are more equal than others.

The Five KKK Supremes have ruled that we are all
equal now except that in many parts of the country
white men driving cars are still more equal that black
men driving cars. It's still against the unwritten law to
DWB in plenty of cities and states in America. And it will
be against the law for minorities to vote in states like
Texas. But we are all equal. Everything is just hunky-dory.
No problem here. Move along.

IOW, a lot of small businesses hire illegals. Not a surprise; the NYC restaurant business depends on illegals just to exist. They'll take a hit if they have to verify.

It's interesting that the estimated number of illegal immigrants in the US [11 million] is also approximately the same as the number of unemployed Americans (allegedly) looking for work [11 million].
Yes, the federal government should enforce e-Verify, but it should also suspend extended unemployment benefits and other programs for the chronically unemployed. I know many Americans are "not willing" to perform certain types of jobs, but what an American is willing to do depends on circumstances. Given proper motivation, an American can mop a floor or cook a burrito just as proficiently as a Mexican.

The same small business lobbyists who want to keep a pathway to nearly free labor, available for their border clients. Cons can't deal with their own.

Two black guys??? That REALLY changed the election moron!

"The conduct for which members of the New Black Panther Party were accused of voter intimidation took place on Election Day in November 2008, at a polling station in a predominantly African-American, Democratic voting district of Philadelphia.[1] Two members of the New Black Panther party, Minister King Samir Shabazz, and Jerry Jackson, stood in front of the entrance to the polling station in uniforms that have been described as military or paramilitary.[2][3][4] Minister King Shabazz carried a billy club, and is reported to have pointed it at voters while both men shouted racial slurs,[5] including phrases such as "white devil" and "you're about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."[6] The incident drew the attention of police, who around 10:00 am, sent King Samir away in part because of his billy club. Jackson was allowed to stay, in part because he was a certified poll watcher.[7] Stephen Robert Morse, a journalist and filmmaker, upon arriving at the scene, pulled out a Flip video camera and focused on Samir Shabazz. Morse turned over the video of the incident to ElectionJournal.org .[8] The incident gained national attention after being uploaded to YouTube.[2]"

No, that's a Rightie talking-point. It never happened, at least no one was prevented from voting. Nor did it affect even local elections one bit.

Unlike the Great Florida Election Robbery of 2000....;)
