Sen. Marco Rubio on immigration bill: No 'parades' for me ... Marco Rubio is defending his participation in the Gang of Eight's immigration bill efforts, saying he knows it won't win him any "parades" among conservatives, but it's necessary. – Politico
Dominant Social Theme: It is a difficult task but one that the Gang of Eight has tackled courageously.
Free-Market Analysis: Marco Rubio was seen by some as an up-and-coming presidential contender. But presumably the cost of maintaining his position within the GOP's upper reaches itself is being a point man for this immigration bill.
The bill weighs in at 24 pounds, we're told, and thus it is much more than merely an "immigration" bill. Also, the bill probably won't cut "illegal" immigration all that much, as most immigrants work for cash and aren't going to want to "step forth from the shadows."
Finally, the bill reportedly encourages employers to hire "immigrants" via tax credits and lays the groundwork for a national ID card.
Rubio has been defending the bill with the time-honored strategy of admitting its potential failures while explaining that action is better than inaction. Here's more:
Speaking Wednesday night with Fox News's Sean Hannity, Rubio said he understands why conservatives are skeptical of immigration reform. "Look, it's obvious I didn't do this for political gain. This is not something that's going to gain me any parades. People are frustrated, and I do understand it. What I hope they understand is that I studied this issue carefully for almost two years and I concluded that what we have in place right now is a disaster," Rubio said.
Saying that border security will be key to an immigration reform package, Rubio said an amendment he hopes will be introduced Thursday will ensure that those issues will be dealt with before any permanent legal residency measures. Rubio has been getting flak from both conservatives and liberals for his participation in the Gang of Eight talks, and has not appeared publicly with his colleagues in the group since April.
Rubio said that given failures by the government in the past, he sees why conservatives aren't happy with immigration reform efforts. "I think conservatives have a right to be skeptical about this. The federal government under both Republicans and Democrats in the past has failed to enforce our immigration laws. That's why we have 11 million people here that are illegally here," Rubio said. .
Still, Rubio said, keeping the status quo would be worse, describing it as "de facto amnesty." "If we don't deal with this problem, and particularly with the border security but also identifying these people that are living in our country and start getting them to pay taxes and consequences for having violated our laws, we're going to leave in place a disaster, a de facto amnesty disaster," Rubio said.
Is there a US amnesty disaster? Certainly NAFTA and CAFTA have drained US industrial vitality. But the easiest way to understand what is going on is to reduce the relationships between the US and Mexico to the simplest variables. The problem is that government owns too much real estate and thus makes the rules for immigration that should be conducted within the ambit of private interests.
Instead of "government" owning land, which is then actually controlled by people who stand behind government, private businesses and individuals should be able to buy what they wish. If people then want to emigrate or immigrate, then those owning the land and the businesses would be responsible for them.
That's not what we have today. Instead, we have shadowy globalist controllers standing behind both the Mexican and US governments. And as a result we have binding trade treaties that sap US industries while building up Mexico.
We have a movement toward what is called the North American Union. While this union is denied by the mainstream media, it is obviously moving ahead. Rubio seems to know it. In fact, his reluctant appearance at the head of this immigration bill is probably part of the larger plan. Rubio has perhaps struck some kind of personal agreement with GOP wheeler-dealers.
Both countries need to be "evened out" before a union like the European Union can be effectively emplaced. Canada will need to be dealt with, as well. The immigration bill is part of it. So is the drug war, which is effectively breaking down Mexico's civil institutions.
The biggest hurdle standing in the way of an NAU is getting Mexican, Canadian and US citizens to conform to the demands of a single citizenship. The current immigration package is likely aimed at doing that.
