Sen. Marco Rubio , R-Fla., sought support from House conservatives Wednesday for far-reaching immigration legislation, but many lawmakers emerged from their meeting deeply skeptical of any comprehensive bill with a pathway to citizenship for immigrants here illegally.

Rubio is a good talker and a Cuban, that's why he was installed as the token leader for the neocons push for amnesty. Rubio only answers to the neocon leadership. If he meets with the real Republicans it's only to try to convince them to follow his neocon bosses. He's a liar and a weasel who has exposed himself. He's damaged goods for all future elections. The neocon leadership used him. He was expendable from the beginning.
The only damaged goods here is the GOP. But because of the gayness of the SCOTUS, the GOP chances of getting power has just increased.

Did you know that Mexican authorities regularly deport Chinese, Russians, El Salvadorans, etc, for being in Mexico illegally. In almost 100% of the cases, the ultimate destination for these people is the US.
I don't hear anyone thanking the Mexican authorities.
I applaud the mexicans so much that I think we should adpot their immigration policy:

1. Only professionals or investors can immigrate to the country. No unskilled laborers will be allowed in. Investors must be able to invest at least 40,000 times the daily average wage. If they can't, they are not allowed in.

2. Immigrants may purchase property, but locations and availability will be limited. Ocean front property cannot be purchased by immigrants. It is exclusively for citizens born in the country.

3. Immigrants cannot vote nor can they be elected to any public office.

4. Immigrants cannot collect any type of government assistance.

5. Immigrants cannot protest the countries government, policies or president.

6. Immigrants cannot display a flag of a foreign country.

7. Immigrants who have illegally entered the country will be found and imprisoned.

Yep these are the immigration laws of Mexico. Let's adopt these!

All you have to do is listen to Rubio talk after todays vote and you can see what a weasel he is. The Republicans must be really hurting or their leadership is really stupid to support this guy and everything he says. (I vote for the stupid scenario). I favor conservatism but the Republican parties leadership is far from that. There are just too many stupid neocons in leadership positions of the Republican party. That's why we can't win the Presidency. Neocons are against the people.

Rubio has peeled back some of his layers, and it's pretty clear all that he says is just what he thinks the audience to which he is speaking, wants to hear...he's a true,conniving politician after all, not the breath of fresh air he was touted as being.
