Marco Rubio catches Potomac Fever

It’s called Potomac Fever. Senator Marco Rubio – seduced by the establishment – is leading the charge for amnesty for illegal immigrants. Rubio took the April 14 Sunday news shows by storm. But the senator degenerated into pure political spin.

First, Rubio claims that this plan is not amnesty, because trespassers have to “qualify.” How do they qualify? They  fill out a form. And they have to continually steal a job from a U.S. citizen. They have to remain employed, while tens of millions of American citizens are out of work. They must pay taxes. But they can’t be turned down. (If they have a criminal record?  See “waiver” below.)

Second, Rubio insists that illegal aliens have to “earn” the temporary (probationary) legal status. How do they ‘earn’ it? If they file the form, they’ve earned it. But wait! They also have to renew their status by filing again later.

Third, if a bank robber is caught, does he get to keep the money? Suppose a robber gets to keep all the money he obtained illegally, gets forgiven, and does not go to jail. Is that amnesty? Will illegal aliens have to pay back all the money they earned illegally in the U.S.A.? Nope. What do you call that?

Fourth, Rubio claims that illegal aliens don’t get anything under the Gang of Eight’s proposal but the chance to apply for a green card. Yet, from Rubio’s own explanation, 11 to 20 million illegal aliens will instantly gain the legal right to take a job in the U.S.A. from a U.S. citizen.  They will have legal status to live and work in the U.S.A., after showing contempt for our nation’s laws.

Millions of honorable foreigners, who respect our country, will be left waiting in their home countries. Suckers! They applied legally to join our nation. Meanwhile, disrespectful gate crashers who show contempt for the U.S.A. can stay, live and work here. Rubio insists that these illegal aliens get nothing but the chance to apply for a green card. That’s not even competent political spin.

‘Temporary’ status will never be taken away. And of course these foreigners can keep having babies on U.S. soil. Those children, U.S. citizens, can then petition to make their parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and grandparents U.S. citizens.

Fifth, immigration law provides for waivers. The applicant can always petition the CIS (formerly INS) to grant a waiver. So the rules aren’t serious. And will Congress have the political will to enforce any of these rules?

Finally, the whole problem here involves people who broke the rules. Naïve utopians dream up complex rules. But gate-crashers won’t follow those rules, either. What kind of citizens will such people become if they broke our laws to get here?

      this is not an ideological battle of left vs right, GOP vs Dems, Socialism vs liberty. This is ethnic warfare against white people.

      Why do hostile globalist elite defend Israel as a Jewish ethnostate with Jewish only immigration, but ravage white majority Europe/North America into a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Gulag with dystopian non-White colonization?

      Why do gullible Whites cuckold for murderous Jewish/Crypto-Jewish commissars, who butcher White soldiers in bankrupting wars, confiscate White people's guns, infiltrate/subvert our banks & spying agencies, indoctrinate White kids in academia/mass media, & plunder White jobs, wages?

      East Asia is 99% yellow. Africa is 90% Black. West Asia is 99% Brown. But 3rd world colonizers are annihilating Whites, just as China is swamping Tibet. Genocidal Jewish commissars murdered 100 million White Europeans from 1917-1991. Jews exterminated countless tribes since Old Testament.

      "Native" Americans are not native. They invaded from East Asia. They slaughtered countless women/children. Muslims, Jews, China, India, Mayans, Africans all are guilty of slavery, genocide. From Greeks till today, Whites have been victims of Jewish, Turkic, Islamic, African slavery, genocide, imperialism.

      Gullible Whites should reject subversive anti-White ideologies – libertarianism, feminism, liberalism, socialism, & reject hostile slanders of racism, collectivism.

      Love to all humanity, but White people must unite & organize to defend & advance their families, their fertility, their interests, their homelands. Urgent reading list:

    Quite frankly I don't see anything wrong with Marco Rubio's position on immigration, as long as its done by the rule of the Law; and off-course the Borders are fully secured once and for ever….No more illegals, regardless from where they are coming, particularly to those that their visa expire, and pretend to stay in the country, there are many using this type of engagement particularly in the Northeast of the country!!!!

    RINO Rubio needs to be taken out behind the shed and let someone put the board of education to the seat of his understanding. Shame on him!!

  • Kathy

    Um, doesn't this violate the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the millions of unemployed LEGAL American citizens by redistributing it to millions of illegals who chose to violate our federal laws?
