Immigration Reform: Marco Rubio Gets Loads Blunt Advice on His Website

Picture 7
A

s Sen. Marco Rubio straddles between positioning himself to run for the White House in 2016 and staying friends with the Tea Party right he’s found it challenging to look both reasonable and hard right-wing on the immigration issue.  One of Rubio’s problems is obvious: He must attempt to stay to the right of a right-wing quadrant of the Republican party that never seems to feel anyone is right-wing enough.  Need examples: Go look at a message board put up on April 17 to solicit comments on the “gang of 8″ immigration reform bill.

Last week, Rubio asked folks to chime in and Help Us Improve the Bill Well chime they did.  Look fast because you can bet this little message board will suddenly disappear when no one is looking.  A sampling:

……….
Withdraw the bill. That is the only “improvement” that makes financial, cultural and environmental sense. Oh yeah, and co-sponsor mandatory E-Verify effective immediately with additional funds to expand access. Give ICE back it’s authority for interior enforcement and stop letting criminal illegal aliens back on our streets. — Joyce Tarnow
……….
Anyone breaking the law while coming into this country is a criminal. The children of said criminals should not be rewarded with U.S. citizenship under no circumstances, period. Let the parents answer to the children about why they broke the law to come here.  — Dan Marttila
………..
“This Amnesty bill is awful and you should back away from it as you promised you would.” — John Williams
………..
“Illegal is Illegal repatriation should be considered. Why should anyone that has broke the law be given a free pass in this great country….”  — Michael Weber

  5. Getting in no way heard of Lerner just before now the sole thing I knew
    of her was gleaned from your handful of minutes she testified just before the
    Oversight Committee this morning asserting her
