Marco Rubio Hugs It Out With Obama on Immigration Reform


The Shark Tank


With the ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration reform bill passing in the U.S. Senate, Senator Rubio has lost favor with many Americans that believed he was against amnesty for illegal immigrants. While I agree in principle with the Senator that immigration reform needs to be addressed, I believe that this flawed bill does not address the border/national security issue first and instead grants amnesty for those who have entered this country illegally.

Rubio himself said that he would never support “any effort” to legalize “folks who have entered or stayed in this country illegally.”

“No, no – never have been. In fact, I’m strongly against amnesty… So I am not and I will never support –  never have and never will support — any effort to grant blanket, legalization amnesty to folks who have entered or stayed in this country illegally.”- Marco Rubio, 3/21/2009-Shark Tank video

Redstate’s Erick Erickson wrote  the following in his recent post, “Marco Rubio Steps Closer to an Obama Hug”-

Rubio and Gang of 8 supporters are admitting that amnesty for 11 million illegal immigrants will deprive American citizens job opportunities and drive down their wages. So instead of walking away from this bill and lowering taxes or removing regulations or reducing government spending or promoting school choice or any other dozens of conservative ideas to promote a better economy and better future for youth, Marco and the 14 other Republicans are embracing a socialist-authored government spending stimulus program. And to top it off, they claim to want to encourage foreigners to immigrate here but will create a new penalty tax them for doing so? WHAT?!?!-Redstate

    We have said it all already, and there’s nothing else to add. In conclusion, if Rubio doesn’t put a bridle to his wild political ambitions, then he’ll have to move over to the Dems for some significant votes. As far as genuine conservatives are concerned, he’s toast.

    Looks like our shining star wasn’t too bright after all. He pushed his base to the back of the bus and the Mexicans who he was courtin’ will never give a Cuban boy the time of day, much less a vote. He had it coming.

      Better we found out now before the election(s).

      Knowing that Rubio WAS a rising star, perhaps the RINO’s and Dems helped to destroy him before he shone too brightly. But if Rubio is that naive and easily swayed, we wouldn’t have wanted him anyway.

      This pic of Rubio and Obama hugging it out looks like man love. *sigh/eye roll*

    Like Marxist SEIU leader Eliseo Medina said
    “What gets attention versus WHO will get attention on immigration…” No doubt he will hug Rubio!

    According to their web site and facebook, Obama’s Leftist group “Alliance For Citizenship” targeted Rubio and their next plan is to hit up FL Rep Mario Diaz-Balart to pass the Immigration Bill in the House. It’s going to be interesting considering SC Rep Trey Gowdy’s bill the SAFE Act HR2278 passed the House, making illegal crossing into the US a federal felony.

    The Immigration Bill Incentivizes Employers To Fire Americans and Hire Amnestied Immigrants; Immigration and Obamacare’s Employer Mandate

    Obamacare is bad enough in and of itself. An immigration bill in the Senate is about to compound the problem.

    Brietbart reports Senate Bill Incentivizes Employers To Fire Americans and Hire Amnestied Immigrants.


    I consider support for this Bill to be an ACT OF TREASON.
