Marco Rubio says he would come to the U.S. illegally if he had to

☆ QueenAline 2012/06/19 13:53:24
Hypothetically, if Marco Rubio were not an American
citizen and could not provide food for his family, he says he would
cross the border illegally to come to the United States.

While discussing immigration policy in his new memoir, An American Son,
Rubio called for "common decency" in dealing with undocumented
immigrants and said that if put in a similar position as those who are
fleeing destitution, he would break the law, too.

"Many people who come here illegally are doing exactly what we would
do if we lived in a country where we couldn't feed our families," Rubio
writes in his book, which went on sale Tuesday. "If my kids went to
sleep hungry every night and my country didn't give me an opportunity to
feed them, there isn't a law, no matter how restrictive, that would
prevent me from coming here."

Rubio, a member of a political party
that has largely opposed efforts to extend a path to citizenship to
those in the country without documentation, has been crafting his own
version of an immigration reform bill that would let some children of
undocumented immigrants avoid being deported.

Rubio is considered a possible vice presidential running mate for
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who spent the primary
season voicing opposition to an immigration plan that would give those
who came illegally permanent residency or citizenship without returning
to their home country first.

WHERE IS MY AMERICAN DREAM, RUBIO - YOU DON'T THINK I DESERVE ONE TOO, YOU THINK I SHOULDN'T GET ONE JUST BECAUSE 6.7 BILLION PEOPLE WERE BORN SOMEWHERE ELSE AND I WASN'T?! AGAIN, YOU AND 0BAMA BOTH ARE A POS!!! CIVIL WAR II: IT'S COMING!

    i wouldn't go that far....and I don't agree with letting these illegals in...Rubios objection is the WAY barry did it...he didn't go through congress as he is supposed to....Granted, Rubio is probably on the side of illegals....but if done through the right pathways....and LEGALLY, is isn't a problem....done the way barry did it, is an outrage.

    Rubio is no better than any other Illegal immergrient !!!! Marco Rubio says he would come to the U.S. illegally if he had to
  • lm1b2 2012/06/19 15:52:53
    I wish he had,that way we could deport him!
  • Yo'Adri... lm1b2 2012/06/19 23:15:15
    this is perhaps why he isn't in contention to be considered Romney's VP!
  • Schläue~© Yo'Adri... 2012/06/20 00:08:00
    His father was not yet a naturalized citizen when Marco was born.

    He is not eligible.
  • Schläue~© 2012/06/19 14:13:40
    In Rubio's case, he would have been under the wet-foot dry-foot scenario due to the 'agreement' we have with Cuba after Kennedy blew Bay of Pigs out his keister and caved to Khrushchev in the missile crisis.

    Regardless, many people would be saying the exact same thing knowing that certain people don't want to enforce our immigration laws and how relatively easy it is to cross the border and reap the rewards of an entitlement laden society on the taxpayers back.
  • Yo'Adri... Schläue~© 2012/06/19 23:16:56
    before we even get into a heated discussion.....the FIRST matter of business is 'PROTECT & SECURE THE BORDER........' AFTER THAT...WE TALK ABOUT PROVISIONS!
  • relic Yo'Adri... 2012/06/19 23:47:59
    The media always omit that part when they blame the Republicans. "Control the Border first! Then we'll talk 'comprehensive reform'."
  • Reichstolz 2012/06/19 14:11:22
    It just proves that he has no understanding of national sovereignty and doesn't respect the rule of law.
  • ☆ QueenAline 2012/06/19 13:54:17

    This is the reason he is considered a possible candidate for VP...I'd rather see Allen West
  • Reichstolz ☆ Queen... 2012/06/19 14:11:59
    Yes he is another pandering politician to the illegal hispanic vote.
  • Yo'Adri... Reichstolz 2012/06/19 23:18:02
    I think NOT!
  • Reichstolz Yo'Adri... 2012/06/19 23:47:40
    Opinions vary, but this is nothing more than a usurping of the immigration law. We don't need any new legislation we need politicians and citizens with the will to enforce that which we already have.

    boom........! I MEAN A big BOOM!
