Team Rubio: Amnesty Before Border Security

This is surely the position of the Republican Establishment, and when debate and primary voting time comes around, Team Rubio will surely flip in order to get the votes

(Breitbart) The chief spokesman for the presidential campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in an on-record interview with Breitbart News that the senator, if elected president, would not require a secured border before he gives legislative and permanent amnesty to recipients of President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“No,” Alex Conant said when asked if the border would need to be secured before a President Rubio’s legislative amnesty for recipients of Obama’s 2012 DACA would replace that executive amnesty.

Rubio intends to, if elected to the White House—as he laid out in a Spanish-language interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos this weekend and was subsequently confirmed by Conant—eventually undo DACA. But he would not do so until there is a legislative replacement that provides the legal status—or amnesty—to DACA recipients on a permanent basis.

“For the sake of argument let’s deal with the kids separately,” Conant said. “We wouldn’t repeal the executive order for the kids on day one, and we would work to replace it with legislation—well, he wouldn’t work to replace it, he would replace it with legislation that gave them a permanent legal solution to their status.”

If Conant is willing to go this far regarding amnesty, you know that the reality is much, much worse

Conant argued that Rubio’s belief that it’s okay to grant the amnesty to so-called DREAMers—people who came to the United States as minors illegally “through no fault of their own”—before the border is secured is something he has always believed. Conant points to a bill Rubio was working on in 2012 to do just that—a bill that was upended when Obama moved forward with DACA without consulting Congress.

Giving them amnesty means giving their parents (and potentially grandparents, cousins, etc) amnesty. Despite all the talk about eventually getting a “legislative solution” and so forth, Rubio is all for amnesty, and said amnesty will simply entice more illegals to come to the U.S., and play the child card.

Let’s sum up here.
Jeb’s endorsing climate change.
Marco’s endorsing amnesty.

As far as a presidential nomination goes, both are history…

If that is where Rubio wants to go with this, then he is dead to me as a candidate unless he really wows me in other areas. (I don’t want to be a one issue voter.)

If, however, he makes a pledge and sticks to it that children that are born here legal citizens and their parents who came here are subject to deportation, I can deal with that.

The parents made a conscience decision to come to the US and break the law. It is up to them to make a decision on whether they want to divide their family when they return to their native country.
