After initial confident talk from the Gang-of-Eight and left-wing babblemeisters -some speaking of 70+ votes in the Senate- suddenly the ill-advised immigration legislation recently touted as near-inevitable is looking wobbly... same script (so far) as a recent congressional offensive against the 2nd Amendment,
how bout that:
how bout that:
“The bill that’s in place right now probably can’t pass the House,” Rubio told Mike Gallagher, a nationally syndicated talk show host.
'It will have to be adjusted, because people are very suspicious about the willingness of the government to enforce the laws now.'
He continued: 'That is a very legitimate suspicion, it’s one that I share, and if there’s anything we can do to make [the bill] even tighter... that’s exactly what we should be working on.'
Sounds nice, and thanks for admitting that border control sucks. But much like Obamacare, this bill has so much BAD in it, there ain't no fixin it, dude. And while we're not trusting any promises on border enforcement, what good are even LAWS when the vile Obama Administration only enforces the ones that fit their own agenda?
For starters, the thing is 844 pages long... if you all insist on such a complicated 'solution', maybe we need quite a bit more time to disinfect this thing with sunlight, eh? What's the rush, Senator?
You, McLame, Linseed, and Democrats are the only ones I see in some sort of hurry- with the rest of us left wondering why.
The bill also does little to keep the newly-blessed immigrants out of the welfare trough, pretends it will force back taxes out of them, does squat to improve border security, and promises faux 'triggers' while handing WAY too much power to Obama's highly politicized and militarized DHS.
Marco Rubio is operating a hard-sell offensive based on a number of false assumptions, chief amongst them being that 'We're not going to deport 11M people' who came here illegally- why not? WHY is ANY deportation off-the-table? WHY is it all-or-nothing? Can't we at least pick through 'em?
WHY do we need to have 'a path to citizenship', either? Why do we OWE this to anybody- or how on Earth does it possibly benefit the United States of America? And why are you guys purporting this to be a long and arduous task for immigrants seeking such citizenship, when you know the bill is full of shortcuts?
Again -as with Obamacare- the presentation of 'what it will do' and the reality we deduce with our own reason just don't match up here. Once it starts to smell funny -and it seems we're being scammed- it's hard to trust these people on anything they say, and this thing already stinks like trash-truck juice.
Anything that gets millions of poor immigrants in the voting booth within the next decade is SUICIDE for the Republican party... 3rd world economic refugees are ready-made Dems, and THEY know it, along with just about everybody else on the planet with the possible exception of the Gang-of-Eight's Gee Oh Pee suicide battalion...
