Rubio: Obama’s executive amnesty for DREAMers will have to end “at some point,” even without a legislative fix

posted at 4:41 pm on November 5, 2015 by Allahpundit

A leftover from yesterday. WaPo calls this a “hardening” of his position, which is true in the same way that jello is harder than water. Previously Rubio’s position was that DACA, Obama’s 2012 amnesty for DREAMers, will end in due time — hopefully because Congress will have passed something in the meantime to replace it. As Julia Hahn noted, that sounds like Barack Obama’s position that executive amnesty will be the status quo until the legislative branch comes up with something better. The last thing Rubio needs amid his mini-surge after the last debate is a new uproar over immigration while undecideds are taking a closer look at him, so here’s his new position: DACA will end once he’s president, whether Congress replaces it with legislation or not. And when will it end? “At some point.”

Border hawks like me are enjoying watching him wobble on the tightrope over this. Also enjoying it: Hillary Clinton.

If he tilts too far left, Trump and the rest of the anti-amnesty GOP base will slaughter him for selling out on immigration again. If he tilts too far right, Hillary will slaughter him for being a captive of the Latino-hating tea party or whatever, notwithstanding the fact that Rubio was Chuck Schumer’s best buddy during the Gang of Eight fiasco and voted for that bill even after it was clear that conservatives were angry. Hillary’s campaign will be pure demagoguery in all directions to mask the fact that 15+ years in federal office have produced not a single real achievement; you’re seeing that now as she desperately tries to paint far-left Bernie Sanders as a sexist and you’ll see it robustly if Rubio’s the nominee when she tries to paint the first Latino major-party primary winner as anti-Latino. That’s why he’ll probably ignore Mark Krikorian’s advice on how to earn back some goodwill from the right:

He could achieve this with three steps: 1) Explicitly, without weaselly politician-talk, pledge that no legalization will be even debated until certain enforcement benchmarks have been met, like fully operational E-Verify and visa-tracking systems, plus two independent, outside estimates showing three consecutive years of decline in the illegal population. 2) Acknowledge that he agrees with Jeff Sessions that current immigration levels are too high, which he can square with his call for more merit-based selection criteria by cutting the chain-migration and lottery categories by 250,000, but increasing skilled immigration by 50,000. And 3) say that he still thinks an expanded temporary worker program is a good idea, but any program would have to be based on principles like those outlined by Ed Meese during the Bush amnesty fight, to prevent the program from leading to permanent settlement or illegal immigration.

I think he might go for steps (1) and (3) but it’s hard to imagine him calling for less legal immigration. Eighty percent of his stump speech is about America being a beacon of hope that calls to all free people, whether they’re raised here or abroad. How’s he going to transition from that to “we need less foreigners”? And would anyone believe it given his history? It’d be Scott Walker all over again, except worse since Walker never had a black eye like the Gang of Eight on his record. Even famous border hawk Ted Cruz is leery of making it too easy for Democrats to accuse him of opposing all forms of immigration rather than illegal immigration specifically, which is why he tried to increase rather than decrease the annual cap on H-1B visas. In fact, I think Cruz is the X factor when it comes to how much Rubio will suffer on immigration during the primaries: Having vowed to rescind Obama’s executive amnesty as president, will Cruz join Trump in coming after Rubio for being too soft on DACA? Or will Cruz, anticipating the attacks in the general election if he goes after young illegals, decide that it’s best to lay off Rubio for being soft on DACA and DREAMers and stick to attacking him for the Gang of Eight bill instead?

Exit question: If, as many Republicans argue, DACA is unconstitutional, why would any Republican president not rescind it on day one?

The Herculean push for the deceiving fast-talking punk is incredible.

Cruz is at 11%, just like Rubiolito, and…the wind is blowing.

Rubio’s number one problem is not his financial situation, or lack thereof.

His Number One problem is the fact that he betrayed all he ever met.

He betrayed his friend, Jeb Bush, who supported him morally and sent him a check even, in his FL congressional and senatorial, state and federal endeavors.

He betrayed the TEA party, who worked avidly to make him Senator of FL, instantly, as soon as he saw the big columns in DC.

He betrayed legal Americans and America with his Gang of Eight.

He still betrays the two, above, when he speaks in Spanish to Jorge Ramos and tells 180 degrees different on amnesty, saying in Spanish that he’ll “keep president Obama’s amnesty deal”, but tells the viewers in English that he wouldn’t.

He betrayed all the FL residents by being absent from DC and not performing his senatorial duties, in pursuit of yet another position.

He never has staying power for more than a few months, after he wins any position.

The media all call him an “establishment insider candidate“. He ran for the senate as an outsider, in the TEA party, and was a total deceiver as soon as he hit DC.

He is, in simple words, Benedicto Arnold to all he ever met, depending on what his incredible political ambitions are.

His second biggest problem is inexperience in the real world.

He has never produced or built anything. He was a lawyer for a very brief time. Other than that he has never even run a taco stand.

How much legal immigration, Ted? Three million? Five million?

Rubio was Chuck Schumer’s best buddy during the Gang of Eight fiasco and voted for that bill even after it was clear that conservatives were angry.

AP, Rubio knew they were angry before he ever got to the Senate and made best friends with Schumer because he thought he could make himself the Presidential frontrunner. Rubio ran for the Senate against what he did!

Just one candidate that doesn’t have to carefully parse every word and evade any question that might actually pin them down on the issue.

Cruz has not released an official position on these issues as yet – but, in this interview, he outright promises no amnesty – promises to secure the border – and promises to stop the abuses of the H-1B visa program. But, no details of his plan as of yet.

As a foundation – Cruz has previously said that he will enforce existing immigration laws – plus now has flat out said “no amnesty” – which would indicate that deportations are part of his plan. He must, and will likely soon, release his official position, if he hopes to compete with Trump on these issues.

You are right, it’s not complicated. Anyone that can watch the bouncing ball can see that’s not the agenda of News Corp and Salem. They want an amnesty candidate. Bush isn’t going to happen so they go to the reliable amnesty guy with the voting record, the one who teamed up with everyone’s favorite Democrats and Republicans, the best each party has to offer: Chuck Schumer, Lil Dick Durbin, the NJ pervert under indictment – Bob Menendez, John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

That’s the guy Salem and HA wants to lead the GOP to defeat. Maybe it’s a good thing for Conservatives overall. After Rubio loses, the supreme court will be a 6-3 or 7-2 majority for liberals. It will be stacked with young justices of Hillary’s choosing that will implement and uphold Obama’s agenda, Clinton’s agenda and future Democrat presidents Cory Booker and either Joaquín or Julian Castro’s agendas. The gift that keeps on giving until North and South America aren’t much different anymore.

Maybe that will be enough for real Conservatives to stop fighting the liberals who own and control the GOP and move up to a 3rd party. Anyone who still considers Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, and McCarthy RINO’s are delusional. That’s the status quo for the GOP, the elected leaders of the party by the super majorities of it’s members. WE Conservatives are the RINO’s. We are only in the GOP because it has power and is closer aligned to our beliefs than Democrats, but the GOP of 2015 isn’t the party of Lincoln or Reagan, nor does it represent me or any real Conservative.

Keep up the great work, Salmen.

In the past “no amnesty” for Cruz has meant legal residency without citizenship. Then he clammed up. So I interested to see what he puts out as his official position.

Joseph K on November 5, 2015 at 5:48 PM

“All that having been said, the optics of this could not possibly be better for Marco Rubio. He’s essentially being attacked by three of the most privileged rich people in America – and not only that, but rich people who gained their riches based primarily on the labors of others – for being middle class. When Trump and Jeb and Hillary sneer about Rubio having to raid his retirement account, you can almost hear the pinky finger in the air from the tone of their voice as they sniff haughtily about the impropriety of a commoner aspiring to the Presidency.

In modern America, Senator Rubio could scarcely hope for enemies like this, or for them to attack him using specifically this angle. I am willing to bet that if he could have, he would have paid Trump, Jeb, and Hillary to do it. Instead, because they are all tone deaf and not very politically astute, they are doing it for him, for free.”
