Quotes of the day

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Sunday said that much of the Gang of Eight’s immigration reform bill was in “perfect shape,” but added he would insist on tougher border security measures.

Rubio, one of the authors of the bill, was asked if he still supported it on ABC’s “This Week.”

“I think it’s an excellent starting point, and I think 95, 96 percent of the bill is in perfect shape and ready to go. But there are elements that need to be improved. This is how the legislative process is supposed to work,” said Rubio.

***

“[A] senior White House offcial insisted that Obama’s role in overseeing details of the bill has been more signifcant than is generally known. ‘No decisions are being made without talking to us about it,’ the official said of the Gang of Eight negotiations … ‘This does not fly if we’re not O.K. with it, because everyone knows this is going to pass with some Republicans but with a majority of Democrats, and it’s going to require even more Democrats in the House.’ … ‘We’re not worried about short-term political credit. We’ll get plenty of it if it gets signed,’ the official said, adding that the White House was willing to let Republicans like [Lindsey] Graham and [Marco] Rubio, who are regularly attacked by conservatives, have the political space they needed. … ‘We’re the hammer on the back end. If the Republicans try to scuttle it, we’re the ones who can communicate to the Latino community who scuttled it.’ …

‘There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it,’ a Rubio aide told me. ‘There shouldn’t be a presumption that every American worker is a star performer. There are people who just can’t get it, can’t do it, don’t want to do it. And so you can’t obviously discuss that publicly.’…

“Fox News has notably changed its tone since the election. … McCain told me, “Rupert Murdoch is a strong supporter of immigration reform, and Roger Ailes is, too.’ … McCain said that he, Graham, Rubio, and others also have talked privately to top hosts at Fox, including Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Neil Cavuto, who are now relatively sympathetic to the Gang’s proposed bill.

***

Rubio badly needs immigration reform to pass, having invested so much time and political stock in the bill’s passage and lacking a major legislative achievement. Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah signaled this week that their votes are out of reach, leaving Paul as Rubio’s best hope for a prominent tea party wingman.

Paul’s nod could boost the bill in the Senate and perhaps more importantly, give it some juice in the tea party-dominated House. “It’s not just Rand’s vote that Rubio needs but the people who will come along with him,” said Doug Stafford, a top Paul adviser. Paul’s support for immigration reform could also offer Rubio political cover in amnesty-wary, conservative corners if he runs for president.

For his part, Paul is trying to prove he can appeal to the growing minority share of the electorate in the wake of 2012 nominee Mitt Romney’s disastrous showing among Hispanic and African-American voters. If an immigration bill passes without Paul on board, he could appear to be left behind instead of leading.

“Rand doesn’t want to concede the general election audience and Rubio doesn’t want to concede the conservative audience,” said Marshall Fitz, director of immigration policy at the Center for American Progress. “It’s like mime theater in which they are playing off each other. It’s like shadow boxing.”

***

When the bill passes the Senate it will put enormous pressure — more than most now realize — on House Republicans. Speaker John A. Boehner, Mr. Ryan and possibly the House whip, Kevin McCarthy, whose California district is one-third Hispanic, want to pass legislation that is acceptable to the Hispanic community. A large majority of the House Republican caucus does not.

Conservatives insist on applying the so-called Hastert rule, which allows consideration only of bills that have a majority of the Republican caucus.

If this is irreconcilable, here is a prediction, based more on instinct than reporting: Mr. Boehner, if necessary, will sacrifice his speakership rather than be party to the death of the immigration overhaul. He realizes that, even though it may not much affect congressional elections next year, his party cannot continue to lose 70 percent of the Hispanic vote and be competitive nationally.

***

Gang of Eight member Bob Menendez advised Republicans to accept legalization status for current illegal immigrants if they ever want to see another president from their party.

“I would tell my Republican colleagues — both in the House and the Senate — that the road to the White House comes through a road with a pathway to legalization,” the New Jersey senator said on State of the Union this morning. “Without it, there’ll never be a road to the White House for the Republican party.”

***

Via the Corner.

***

“The question of border security is now tangled up with the IRS and the Justice Department and the general, pervasive distrust of the executive branch,” he explained. “Because, what the bill says is, ‘The executive branch will certify if the border is secure.’ I don’t believe that the Republicans in Congress are going to take that.”

“They’re going to vote for a bill — or against a bill — whether or not it has ‘Congress shall certify,’ not the executive branch, because no one trusts the executive branch anymore,” he said

***

“I don’t focus a lot on public polling, but if you look at these public polls, it’s clear the vast majority of Americans understand that what we have in place in this country is de facto amnesty, a broken legal immigration system that needs to be reformed,” he said.

That came after Rubio had already offered an even more dismissive answer to host Jon Karl, who asked “Are you being played by the Democrats? Is Chuck Schumer playing you, is essentially the charge?”

Rubio’s answer: “I don’t — I quite frankly, I don’t even know what that means.”

“I think it’s an excellent starting point, and I think 95, 96 percent of the bill is in perfect shape and ready to go. But there are elements that need to be improved. This is how the legislative process is supposed to work,” said Rubio.

In other words, we’ll be debating ‘immigration reform’ (read: another amnesty bill) again in five years or less. We’ll be hearing from Reid and the Schumer Republicans again about ‘making America fair at last’, especially when it comes to homosexual illegals — the most special of the special.

Amnesty is going to be another perpetual problem created by politicians that we’ll never be rid of.

Why should we care about the GOP’s “demographic death spiral” if they’re willing to tolerate a slow-motion INVASION of our country? If that’s truly the case, good riddance.

There is NOTHING in the best interest of the General Welfare of the United States accomplished by this bill. That’s just the bottom line. And if Republicans are no longer up to the task of defending us… let’s find, or create, some other party which will. They’re making a HUGE mistake if they think we’re so afraid of Democrats that we’ll put up with anything they dish out. They’re wrong. This amnesty bill is UNFORGIVABLE and we WILL punish at the polls any Republican who votes for it.

Meanwhile Levin, Limbaugh and Hannity still love Rubio more than they love America.

VorDaj on June 16, 2013 at 8:35 PM

Rubio sided with the Chamber against the construction workers. ‘There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it,’ a Rubio aide told me. ‘There shouldn’t be a presumption that every American worker is a star performer. There are people who just can’t get it, can’t do it, don’t want to do it. And so you can’t obviously discuss that publicly.’ In the end, the wage issue was settled to the A.F.L.-C.I.O.’s satisfaction, and the Building and Construction Trades union won a cap on the number of visas for foreign construction workers. On March 29th, Good Friday, Fresco called Schumer and said that the two sides had reached an agreement. It was 10 P.M., but Schumer wanted to call [the AFL-CIO’s Richard] Trumka and [the Chamber’s Tom] Donohue to make sure that they wouldn’t back out. He checked with a few of his Catholic staffers to see if it was all right to call on Good Friday. They told him it was. Schumer called Trumka and Donohue separately, then conferenced them into the same call. They agreed to support the temporary worker provision. ‘That was the first moment that I said, we can actually get this done,’ Schumer recalled.

“In the morning, he called Denis McDonough, Obama’s chief of staff, who was starting to have doubts about the Gang, and gave him the news. ‘You guys are kicking ass,’ McDonough said. … Schumer said [of Rubio], “He’s the real deal. He is smart, he is substantive. He knows when to compromise and when to hold. And he’s personable.’ An aide to Menendez said that, if the Gang were a group of high-school students, Rubio would be the cool jock and the captain of the football team, with whom everyone wanted to hang out. Schumer often found himself mediating disputes between Rubio and McCain, who felt that Rubio’s public statements sometimes positioned him positively with conservatives at the expense of the Gang. McCain would call Schumer and fume, “Look what Rubio’s doing! …

Sessions was right. Disgustin backroom deals.

There are people who just can’t get it, can’t do it, don’t want to do it. And so you can’t obviously discuss that publicly.’…

White working class voters let themselves believe that the GOP had their back. Sorry dudes, the GOP has *capital’s* back and they are looking to undercut American wages so they can offer wall street investors ever increasing profit margins. We tried to warn you when you bashed the unions. We tried to warn you when you bashed protectionism. We tried to warn you when you poo poo’d buying American products. We tried to warn you when you sought the cheapest products regardless of where they came from. And now you can blame the Mexicans all you want. But you know, and I know, there’s no Mexican immigration without Mexican labor and there’s no Mexican labor without the desires of multinational corporations. Reality is hitting you all in the face. Will you actually do something about it outside of hate Mexicans?

libfreeordie on June 16, 2013 at 8:39 PM

Rubio should have gotten a clue and walked away the instant Schumer said, “Our Republicans.” The fact he didn’t tells me he’s been a RINO all along and, like all RINOs, talks a Conservative line to get elected. McCain and Spectre always had that trick down pat; they always got religion, so to speak, during an election year. Then they returned to business as usual.

If the Republican Party wants to commit political suicide, let them. I’ll be glad to help them along by not voting for one of them any more than I’d be willing to vote for a Dem.

Someone else posted this article accompanying a clip of a black father from LA who’s high-school-football-star son was EXECUTED by an illegal-immigrant gang member out of jail on early release.

Please tell me why the bill has provisions that doesn’t absolutely EXCLUDE such criminals from amnesty.

This bill is an abomination, and, frankly, I cannot believe that Hot Air didn’t run piles of the Congressional testimony from the House judiciary committee from three days ago. It’s conduct that I expect from the media, not from Hot Air. It’s a disgrace.

At Mass this morning our priest made a remark that the Church (Catholic) supports the immigration bill.
I confirmed this remark was also repeated at the next Mass by a different priest. (Note: None of the priests in my parish are American born).
-
Is this something unique to the New York Archdiocese
or have some of you folks around the country also heard this?
-
Indeed, since the bill has yet to be finalized this pronouncement seems strange. You would think “The Church” should have learned something from The Affordable Care Act and Nancy Pelosi – “We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It”.

How nice of Rubio to let La Raza and CAIR write the bill. Because that is exactly what happened.

If someone came here from another planet, having learned English from decades old radio broadcasts, they would think we had been at war with Mexico and Mexico won. Not won as big as we did against the Japaneses where there was an unconditional surrender, but pretty close to it, and we are now negotiating the almost unconditional surrender terms. How could we have been defeated by the Mexican army? We were not. Rubio and the Gang Bang Eight sabotaged all our weapons and poisoned our water supply.

VorDaj on June 16, 2013 at 8:57 PM

Rubio is going to do more damage to the USA than Al Queda. Just think about it.

SparkPlug on June 16, 2013 at 8:58 PM

This piece of crap may pass,but there will be enough of us so pissed we will destroy the political careers of any GOP member that votes for it.There will be consequences!

redware on June 16, 2013 at 8:05 PM

If this bill passes, it will be the end of the Republic. We’ll have Marxists in charge until it all collapses. The entire West, Southwest and Texas will turn blue, blue, blue. Game Over.

Reality is hitting you all in the face. Will you actually do something about it outside of hate Mexicans?
libfreeordie on June 16, 2013 at 8:39 PM

such a typical squish bleeding heart waste of skin liberal you are. I do hate Mexicans that come here illegally and rape, and murder, and mooch off of our resources. Especially at a time when we seriously cannot afford it. I also hate homosexuals and their idiotic supporters who want to trash society’s traditions and bugger innocent boys. I also hate all Muslims because if they are not chopping your head off, they are turning a blind eye to it and wearing head to toe heavy clothing in 90 degree plus weather. That’s hygienic! It’s time that most people tune into hate and start pushing back. You want a rainbow unicorn skittle fantasy world. You are insane and you seem to enjoy it. Please die. And soon. How do you like that hatred sweetheart?

I wish that I could tell my dad that.

jazzuscounty on June 16, 2013 at 8:39 PM

As do I, but remember. We honor our parents, (living and dead,) not with mere words, but with our deeds. Each kindness, each step toward the good, says “Happy Father’s Day – Love you, Dad!” more than the words ever could. My best guess – your Dad knows exactly how much you wish him a happy fathers day.

Remember this from National Review?

Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.

The high-immigration Right has borrowed not only its immigration-policy views from Ted Kennedy, but now his political tactics as well. Grover Norquist, Linda Chavez, American Conservative Union president Al Cardenas — and Senator Marco Rubio — have launched a campaign to Bork those on the right who disagree with Obama’s [illegal] immigration plans.

Right now Rubio is America’s biggest enemy. If Levin and Limbaugh do not understand this, they understand nothing about America.

bluegill on June 16, 2013 at 9:03 PM

These people are delusional. They really believe if they ram this disaster through that not only will it somehow gain them a bunch of new Latino voters who are predisposed to voting Democrat, but that their base who they just p-ssed all over will still show up the polls.

Maybe the GOP is on a long-term death march due to demographics changes. But if this thing passes, it’ll be a moot point because they’ll get wiped out regardless in 2014 and 2016.

I’m glad Cruz and Lee have stated they won’t vote for this crapola.

In other news…another State Dept. former employee has come forward…sez she was harassed, bullied and forced to leave cause she revealed shannigans by the ambassador in Naples.
