Marco Rubio and the amnesty plan
Marco Rubio discussed his plan for immigration reform recently. This is why I would never support Marco Rubio for President:
“They would have to come forward. They would have to undergo a background check…They would be fingerprinted…They would have to pay a fine, pay back taxes, maybe even do community service. They would have to prove they’ve been here for an extended period of time. They understand some English and are assimilated. Then most of them would get legal status and be allowed to stay in this country,” he said.
“They’d get behind everybody who came before them” in line for citizenship, Rubio adds, but he does believe they should be able to achieve citizenship someday. He also suggested the process should be expedited for young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. by their parents.
How would we know how much each person owes in back taxes? How would they be able to afford fines? What would be the standard to judge who is “assimilated”? How much English is “some English”? These are all points that can be manipulated by those who favor giving illegal aliens full amnesty. If a plan like this were to pass, I’m willing to bet that few people would be deported or denied legal status.
To make matters worse, these 10 or 15 million people would then petition for their relatives to enter, since few in Congress would have the backbone to support annual immigration limits, which would further burden the country.
A Rubio Presidency means amnesty under a different name.
