I hope Rubio gets all the illegal alien votes, because he won't get any from people who came here legally, or who were born here.

If immigration reform passes, the GOP may be divided but ...
they can recover from that
The coupling of immigration reform with border security is the only way border security gets addressed. thus it for the best.

If it fails . You still have a divided GOP and one that will have killed off any hope of hispanic votes, and any hope of winning. You still have the same illegals.
And the border dont get any more secure than it was before you said NO

No, Democrats have lied time and time again about securing the border after we give amnesty. We know their lying again and its a no vote until borders are secure. This time next year, 20 more million Mexicans will be welcomed from Mexico.

What happened? Rubio himself is an anchor baby. But when the teabaggers first supported him to run in 2016, you jumped right on the bandwagon. Go back and support Herman, cold pizza man, Cain. You did that too, remember?

If homeland security had ever done their job's before now. This problem would not exist. Therefore know one has faith in anything they tell us now. The technology exist's to control the borders and deport illegals. But we don't have the gut's to do it. Employers have been subsidized by the American taxpayer as we support illegals working illegally under the table. The debacle is so messy now, I can't see a path to anywhere. Mexicans will not be identified. Too messy. Won't put them selves in a position to pay anything to America. They came to take, not give. Rubio, will pay at the polls for pushing this in our faces.

Actually, the Republican nominee isn't well known, and he won't be chosen by the RINOs. Regular Republican voters are speaking to 4 people the leadership isn't looking at. One isn't in politics.

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnestybill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 19869884.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and
into the sunshine of America"

Exclusive: The Truth About 'La Raza'

Quote:

"Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the
real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands
of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican
flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.

Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento
Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan
(MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has
permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a
racist nation out of the American West.

One of America's greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants
from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as
Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and only,
in our national loyalties.

This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants
pouring across our borders, to whom they say:

"Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the
notion that we...should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting
pot...Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas ... It became
synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from
a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the
Manifest Destiny." (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3,
2006)

MEChA isn't at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races.
Their founding principles are contained in these words in "El Plan
Espiritual de Aztlan" (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):

"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud
historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our
territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land
of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their
birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare
that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our
inevitable destiny.... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water
the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans.... We
are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of
North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a
nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo.
Fuera de La Raza nada."

That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal
rights for all. It says: "For The Race everything. Outside The Race,
nothing."

Rubio has proven himmself to be just another conniving politician who puts his agenda above the best interests of Americans. He just burned any chance he had to run for pesident. He's a loser. He needed that glass of water because he was already imploding when he gave his BS speech.

Definition of "Native American" - A decendent the aboriginal people who happened to be standing north of an arbitrary line created by Europeans when they partitioned the land amoungst themselves. Those decendents of the aboriginal people who happened to be standing south of that line are now called Hispanics.

"Republicans know they cannot win the presidency in the future without significantly improving their level of support from Hispanics."

This is outrageous that they think this way!!!

Hispanics are around 10% of our voting population! They WILL be voting for dems!!! Repubs, try standing for what's right, the Constitution, upholding and enforcing our laws?!!! You will get more votes than you think, and get respect! Otherwise, the more you encourage Hispanics to vote is just encouraging them to vote dem. Let them work for their own, a whole field of Americans are looking for leadership for Americans!!!!
