Rubio co-sponsored a bill backing in-state tuition for illegals while a member of the Florida House

posted at 1:21 pm on January 6, 2016 by Allahpundit

A nice hit by Tim Mak of the Daily Beast, although it’s one of those stories where you read it and think, “Did I already know this?” I don’t think I’ve ever written about Rubio and in-state tuition but the details seemed familiar. And sure enough, with a little googling you find that various biographical profiles of him over the last few years have mentioned it, usually in passing. Time magazine flagged it in 2013, as did the Tampa Bay Times in a story a year later. It popped up again in 2015 in National Journal’s long treatment of what kind of leader Rubio might be as president. It gets overlooked, I think, because it’s a small blemish on his record compared to the much larger stain from the Gang of Eight. And like the Gang of Eight bill, his tuition bill in the state legislature didn’t even become law.

But if you’re looking for evidence of who the “real Rubio” is on immigration, in case that was still in any doubt, here you go.

Rubio has since distanced himself from the immigration reform effort he once championed. But back in 2003 and 2004, he was even more generous to undocumented immigrants. Rubio and [David] Rivera co-sponsored legislation that would have allowed undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition in community colleges and state universities.

Those who resided in the state and attended a Florida high school for three years prior to graduation would be able to pay in-state tuition, the legislation proposed, if the student pledged to file an application to be a U.S. permanent resident as soon as he or she is able to do so…

In Oct. 2011, Rubio said that “As a general rule, people in the United States who are here without documents should not benefit from programs like in-state tuition.”

But in 2014, he said that a law permitting in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants “should be something they could consider… I think the better approach is to solve the immigration problem at the federal level.”

He was still in pre-Gang “true conservative” mode in 2011. By 2014, he was post-Gang and looking to make nice with the donor class before running for president. “It surprises no one that Rubio has been a consistent supporter of policies that encourage more and more illegal immigration,” Ted Cruz’s spokesman told the Daily Beast. (Cruz opposed in-state tuition for illegals during his Senate run in 2012.) In-state tuition wasn’t Rubio’s only foray into immigration policy while a member of the Florida House, though. After he’d become speaker, the topic of sanctuary cities came up. Here’s what the Tampa Bay Times piece linked above from 2014 says about it:

In a sign of how closely his record is being reviewed, a Republican rival reminds us that a bill to prevent sanctuary cities in Florida died under Rubio’s watch as speaker of the Florida House.

The legislation from then Rep. Don Brown, a Republican from north Florida, was one of several bills that were killed.

Rubio denied he was the factor, but supporters of the bills were outraged. His office was besieged with phone calls from people complaining about the lack of movement.

“There is nothing the state of Florida can do unilaterally to solve global warming. And there is nothing we can do unilaterally to solve immigration,” said Rubio, the first Cuban-American to become House speaker, told the Tampa Bay Times in 2008.

Maybe President Rubio can “solve global warming.” As for unilaterally solving immigration, that’s a red herring. He wasn’t being asked at the time to solve all of America’s immigration problems, he was being asked to advance a bill that would bar sanctuary cities in Florida specifically. Other states have managed to do that. Why couldn’t they? Was it because comprehensive immigration reform was all the rage among the national GOP leadership even at the time and a young aspiring senator didn’t want to get crosswise with them when he might need their support later?

But none of this much matters. It’s grist for the mill if you dislike Rubio, but if you like him or are open to him in spite of (or because of) the Gang of Eight, what he did or didn’t do in Florida 10 years ago isn’t going to be the dealbreaker. The fact remains that he’s the only game in town if you’re anti-Trump and anti-Cruz. His latest endorsement, from Jason Chaffetz, appeared just this morning. Plenty more to come before Iowans caucus, no doubt.

A comment from Free Republic:

Rubio was never suckered by anyone [in the Gang of 8]. From the very start of his political career he preached amnesty to Spanish speaking audiences like La Raza, and securing the border to English speaking audiences. The speeches were available to watch online. Many articles discussing this were posted here and I participated in a lot of those threads. So from day one it was indisputably clear that slimeball Rubio was a liar. The only question was…which audience was he lying to? That is pretty clear now.

When Rubio was in the Florida legislature he was already promoting the goals of illegals and preventing bills that would have done something about them. He wasn’t suckered by Schumer and Obama. His real view of illegals is the same as theirs. He’s just lying about it after the American people rose up in anger over the amnesty he was pushing. Vote for Rubio and you’ll get lax immigration and amnesty.

With the way Trump is kissing Obama’s ass over the tears he shed for himself yesterday, I’m questioning his judgement about as much as I question Rubio’s.

There are TWO games in town for the Establishment. Rubio, who’s shoring up the backing of the hated GOP Congress, and Christie, who will have the backing of the GOP governors he helped to elect as Chair of the Republican Governors Assn.

My money’s on Christie to be the eventual Establishment choice.

Arnold Yabenson on January 6, 2016 at 1:40 PM

SURPRISED NO WAY! He is an establishment Republican was on the Chuck Schumer gang of eight for Amnesty team. This is why the Establishment Republican elites are starting to back Rubio since they are losing hope and moving off Bush and need another standard bearer to bring more cheap labor into the country. The republican establishment elites and the Chamber of Commerce need their cheap labor and if it takes job loses by American workers that is OK as far as the Establishment is concerned.

There are some in the GOP who would like Christie to be appointed nominee, but the bottom line is Christie does not have a lot of money, does not have a strong national organization, and doesn’t have polling numbers outside the single digits for the most part.

Basically, the only people who can compete nationally are Trump, Rubio, and Jeb. There just isn’t time to get a good national campaign apparatus up and running. As it is, there’s been a number of articles about Rubio struggling to build a competitive organization.

HugoDrax on January 6, 2016 at 1:48 PM

Trump and Rubio are like twinkies:

Romney’s solution of “self deportation” for illegal aliens made no sense and suggested that Republicans do not care about Hispanics in general, Trump says.

“He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal,” Trump says. “It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote,” Trump notes. “He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.”

The GOP has to develop a comprehensive policy “to take care of this incredible problem that we have with respect to immigration, with respect to people wanting to be wonderful productive citizens of this country,” Trump says.

I rely on knowing what he did do. He did not seek to involve himself in political squabbles (except for confronting Jewish religious leaders for their hypocrisy and abuses, who were to some degree also political leaders).

When asked about paying taxes to the much hated Romans, he instructed people to obey the law (‘render unto Caesar’), even when it went against their sensibilities.

My understanding was that Cruz has done well in the money/ground organization department, particularly in the South.

Christie is depending on the support of state govs to bridge the gap… which may be a pipe dream. A lot will shake out after NH. If Christie does well, and Rubio doesn’t, Establishment money/org will seek its best chance.

Jason Richwine: Cost of Amnesty – $6 Trillion And The End of Conservatism In America

Jason Richwine, a Harvard PhD who specializes in how the demographics of mass immigration impact societies, says the lifetime cost of an immigration amnesty would be over $6 Trillion.

Yet Richwine tells Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon that in some ways, that’s not even the most important issue.

Not only would it lower wages for workers, but the cultural impacts are beyond significant and could also mean the complete end of conservatism in America, while a more liberal Republican Party carries on just fine.

And, incidentally, my above comment disagrees with the claim in this article that because those tuition bills were a “small blemish on his record”, and didn’t become law during his watch, that Rubio’s record on illegal immigration is not bad. Allah leaves out those six bills he blocked as Speaker, which were a much bigger thing. FAIR and NumbersUSA were there and a lot of effort, time and money was spent to assure the bills would stand up to legal scrutiny.

In an article on another site today I read the perfect description of Rubio’s stance on illegal immigration: that it is a key part of his political philosophy; it is not even a matter of his just flip-flopping from time to time or being coerced by anyone. He is a died in the wool amnesty freak.

Exactly. There goes the argument he was merely naive, or the argument he tried recently (which got some press here on Hot Air) about it being a starting point which Conservatives would have added to into some sort of palatable legislation.

Clearly that is all lies and the truth is Rubio is as much of a pro-Amnesty politician as Jeb! if not moreso. Except for being a little younger and a little better spoken, there is no difference between Bush and Rubio.

The fact remains that he’s the only game in town if you’re anti-Trump and anti-Cruz.

April 2014, I tried to testify in FL state legislature meeting against the in-state tuition for illegal aliens bill.

I arrived too late to get to testify, as almost 100 were in line ahead of me, but there was plenty of time for several “dreamers” to whine about their own situation.

After the (GOPe) sponsor finished his post-testimony press conference, I asked him, “Where will these graduates get a permanent legal job?” He turned his back on me and walked away.

F the GOPe.

My state sales taxes are now paying for illegal aliens to attend state universities.

Hell, they still can’t get a driver’s license in FL, but they can get a highly subsidized college education. I guess they will hitchhike to their professional jobs until Trump rescinds all the DACA EO’s with their work authorizations. Or move to Nevada, California, or one of the other 11 states that reward illegal aliens with drivers licenses.

Did I say forget to say “F the GOPe” ??
