Marco Rubio’s (& Romney’s) “Mini-“DREAM Act Gives Amnesty To Illegal Alien Muslim Extremists

By Debbie Schlussel

Eager to woo Hispanic voters (and perhaps solidify a Vice Presidential nomination), Florida’s U.S. Senator, Marco Rubio, as planning to introduce what he calls “a scaled-back version of the DREAM Act,” the Democrat bill which gives college scholarships, in-state tuition, and de facto amnesty to millions of thousands of illegal aliens.  Don’t believe the hype. Rubio’s version is just as bad. And it has the Romney campaign fingerprints all over it.




Mitt Happens: Amnesty Via Marco

Rubio’s plan will give legal status to illegal aliens brought here as children, if they enroll in college or the military.  But that would give plenty of illegal aliens permission to remain here.  Plenty of dangerous illegal aliens, including the illegal alien children of Muslims who come here.  Plenty of them go to college.  It doesn’t mean they hate America or love jihad any less than they already do.  We don’t need to give them “legal status” or in-state tuition or anything else.  We need to deport them.  And note that you haven’t heard Mitt Romney–who claims he’ll be tough on illegal aliens and whom Rubio endorsed–saying he’s against the Rubio pipe DREAM Act.  And that’s because Romney is behind this nod and wink toward illegal aliens.  Rubio is doing Etchy-Sketchy (with emphasis on the Sketchy part) Romney’s Hispanic outreach with this.

Congressional Republicans and Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign are working to fashion proposals that could make up ground with Hispanic voters, concerned rhetoric on immigration from many in the party is turning away the increasingly powerful constituency.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) is developing a scaled-back version of the Dream Act, which would allow people brought to the U.S. as children to gain legal status, but not citizenship, if they enroll in college or the military. Several Senate Republicans have signed on to bipartisan legislation aimed at broadening access to the legal immigrant visa system.

The Romney campaign is looking for new proposals that would show he backs legal immigration, trying to pivot from a primary campaign in which he has taken a tough line on assistance to those here illegally. . . .

The Democratic version of the Dream Act, proposed in 2001, would offer citizenship; Mr. Rubio’s expected plan would grant legal status short of citizenship. He said he doesn’t want to offer citizenship because that would allow those affected to sponsor others for future visas. Without citizenship, they couldn’t vote or hold certain jobs.

Um, they can still live here, take many jobs, and definitely live off of public benefits and entitlements. Same difference. And, as you know, this is just the first step on the slippery slope. Ultimately, they would all seek and get citizenship. Thanks, Marco. If you think you can trust Rubio, remember that the Florida Republican Party could not, since he worked the system with all kinds of sleazy scams regarding his car and house using legislative and party credit cards, etc. If you think he’ll be different with illegal aliens and change his spots, I have some land in the Arizona desert to sell you. Or the python-infested Florida Everglades.

And I can name several Islamic terrorism suspects and convicts who would have gotten “legal status” in the U.S. under this BS Rubio amnesty plan.

Mr. Rubio said his interest in a modified version of the Dream Act came from learning the story of a Miami teenager who came to the U.S. from Colombia at age 4 and is now her high school’s valedictorian. Set for college, she received a deportation notice. Under the Democrats’ version of the Dream Act, she could earn citizenship by completing at least two years of college.

So sad, too bad. Guess what? There are teenagers who came to the U.S. from Lebanon at age 4 and younger. Some of them even get great grades and test scores. And they support Hezbollah and hate America, too. At least one of them is named Ihab Maslamani, and he murdered innocent pizza deliveryman Matt Landry. Should people like that get “legal status”? Nope. They should be deported (if they are not behind bars, as Muslimani now is).

The fact is that there is barely any difference between Rubio’s bad DREAM Act and the Dems’ nightmarish DREAM Act.

Rubio’s plan merely puts perfume on a rotting corpse. But both of ’em stink.

And so does Mitt Romney, who’s been pretending to be tough on immigration, but will be just like Obama once he gets elected. ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) will continue to be on ice.

As far as I know, there is no Republican governor, senator, and except for a handful, any Republican representative who has a tough line on illegal immigration. The Republican party establishment, and the talk show pundits are all behind Rubio. It was disgusting listening to Medved in the car today. This party clearly favors expediency over principle. Romneycare, open borders, vagueness on foreign policy, but the putrid Republican establishment as ‘advisors’ — don’t support Walker too much in Wisconsin because it might antagonize unionists in swing states such as Ohio?

Oh, but I forgot, The conservative justices passed a victory allowing unlimited financial contributions to help them get reelected. What a victory. It helps them, but how do these contributions help us? Do they close the borders or rid us of affirmative action, challenge gay marriage, present a better foreign policy?

I stayed at home in 2008, and see no reason not to do so again.

Little Al on April 3, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Little Al, the few times I tune into Medfraud to see what crap he is slinging makes me almost turn into the Hulk! He absolutely makes my head explode.

    He is whip-smart, I will give him that BUT if he thinks I think I am so much more dumb than he is that I’ll listen to him sling it and accept the crap he says, he needs to wake the eff up!

    AGAIN he rejected Obama-Putin as a socialist. If he thinks there is NOT enough evidence to prove it (and there is) he’s chillin’ in FairyTaleLand!

    But we know he’s playing the same game O’Reilly The Loofah is playing and he’s not fooling those who work their brain even if we are not as intelligent as him.

    It shows what a wimp he is and when things go bad he’ll be useless. He will make people more angry because he had what it takes to know better but chose to act as if his stupid way would work with the dirty, beastly Democrats. It’s like expecting Palestinians to be on the level.

    Skunky on April 3, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Marco Rubio is not proposing anything very different from what Democrats previously proposed. In the end, it rewards bad behavior at the expense of people who do what they are supposed to do become legal residents and U.S. citizens. In short, an honest applicant or immigrant is a fool. We prefer the dishonest person to the honest one. You can imagine what you will be getting as a result. Finally, the people Marco Rubio is pandering to will almost certainly not vote for a Republican if they even bother to vote at all. It is good to know that the Republican Party is as anti-American as the Democratic Party is now. U.S. citizens and legal residents are garbage their eyes, and of no account.

Worry01 on April 3, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Marco Rubio reportedly has an inside track on the nomination as Romney’s running mate. Both are hacks who either pander to or embrace the mass-immigration lobby. Isn’t there one major Republican office holder, at least this side of Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., with some spine on this issue?

Seek on April 3, 2012 at 7:13 pm

My gosh, who and where are all these friggen’ Latino “valedictorian” illegal crimaliens I always hear about? The talk about them as if they are Tribbles but I have never met one. The ones I have met HAVE been the kind that many of you have met…and leave us pissed off!

I don’t trust Rubio and never have. He does NOT impress me and comes off as boring and slick.

It’s nice to see the “Republicans” doing the same thing Liberals/Democrats do and feel they can vote with an R after their name./

I HATE identity politics and reject when Republicans pick someone on gender and/or race. That must STOP!

I’m part Mexican and I will NEVER vote or support any Hispanic/Latino who thinks just because they are one of those groups that they must support illegal crimaliens. These cheats and tricksters are an embarrassment to those who try to gain citizenship the proper way. The line is long and the cost expensive and it’s NOT FAIR to those waiting in line and paying all the $$$.

Never forget these cheats and tricksters DO NOT really love America. If they did they would NEVER cheat and lie and do the things they do.

Skunky on April 3, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Skunky, I have no problem people going through the front door. It is rewarding those who sneak in under the gate and then demand special treatment that bothers me. I do not consider such people to be worthwhile, much less worthy of any special consideration.

It’s Britain all over again. We’re screwed. Not only do both parties ignore the law but they have us the taxpayers pay for it. The last estimate I heard was 11 million illegal aliens in the country right now.

It’s a damn shame Mitt head is all we’ve got to put up against Obummer. Also, Ruth Ginsburg should be retiring from the Supreme Court soon. I’m wondering what type of judge slick Mitten would appoint given the chance.

Well do you people want the socialist Obama? Or do you want a checked pants like Romney?

Squirrel3D on April 3, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    I want a credible conservative Republican candidate. The GOP elite and the GOP primary voters don’t want one.

    In all other worlds, I’d want to get rid of Obama but if his GOP replacement continues his policies, why bother to switch the people at the top?

    I’m betting American voters will come to the same conclusion in the fall.

    NormanF on April 3, 2012 at 11:30 pm

Enrolling in college is a bogus reason. Serving time in the military, on the other hand, has a long tradition. We should set up a Foreign Legion and drop kick them like the French do.

Where are the homegrown American leaders, leading with hearts and heads for the good of the people. Seems like the lunatics are trying to outdo each other for the sake of the vote. Cowards and traitors. The WH incumbent can hardly speak with authority when his illegal family matters have caused such consternation.

Eyes Wide Open on April 3, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Eyes Wide Open,

    Debbie wrote a post about those rule changes last month. That said, I have to agree with her that no matter who is elected in November, ICE will remain on ice.

    NormanF on April 3, 2012 at 11:25 pm

Another reason I won’t be voting for Etchy Sketchy “Mitt Happens” Romney in November. (Debbie keeps on finding reasons for me not to vote for the prospective GOP presidential nominee.) His prospective policies aren’t any different from Obama’s and he has given me no compelling reason to vote him in as President.

Thanks but no thanks. If this is what we can expect next year from a Romney Administration, I’ll take Obama for another four years.

NormanF on April 3, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Norman I normally love your commentary, but BHO is not the same as Romney. 4more years of BHO will irrevocably change this country to only G-d knows what. He is a fraud who like his Arab buddies only knows how to fly, but is not a pilot. He is only now learning how to use regulations and presidential decrees. We need to unite against him or face a bleak future. No, Romney is not the best choice, but he is a better one.

    Jimbo on April 4, 2012 at 1:32 am


      Feel free to do do what you want. I’m not voting for Obama-Lite policies on immigration, health care and national security. The Supreme Court is important to be sure but there is no guarantee a President Romney will appoint conservative justices.

      I’m not expecting a great deal of change no matter who wins in November.

      NormanF on April 4, 2012 at 1:03 pm

The problem with a Republican version of Obama in the WH is now we have ‘Obama’ with the GOP behind him. Could it get any worse than that? Can we survive another 4-8 years of Bush III?

theShadow on April 4, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Realistically, Romney would be marginally better than Barack Obama. That is not saying much. However, another four years of Barack Obama would ensure a U.S. Supreme Court that would reflect his views. Even if a Republican got in as President after that, he would be hamstrung by Obama’s legacy appointments. It would be like Richard Nixon running Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society”. He found that he could in fact change little. Once the constituencies are locked in for Obamacare and other massive new entitlement programs, the Republicans will be powerless to do more than tinker around the edges. Another four years of Barack Obama would make any fundamental redirection of his policies effectively impossible, due to their entrenchment.

    Worry01 on April 4, 2012 at 1:53 am

Norman, problem w/ another 4 years of Obama is that since he won’t be running for re-election, he’ll be uninhibited in what he can do. Heck, he can even sign an executive order making Saudi law applicable in US courts, and what’s going to stop him?

Infidel on April 4, 2012 at 4:48 am


    True. But I haven’t see the GOP offer the country a case of how they’ll do things different from Obama. If its the same poison pill wrapped up in different-colored wrappings, its still the same poison pill.

    I want a break from Obama’s policies not more of the same. I don’t think that case will be made to the voters.

    NormanF on April 4, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    Much as I will not be voting for Obama, you’re overestimating what he will do if re-elected. It’s a myth that a second-term president, no longer constrained by fears of failure to win re-election, can do anything he wants. Such a president, far from unleashing his “real” agenda, tends be gun-shy in the face of Congress, the courts and public opinion. Think of Nixon, Reagan, Clinton and Bush II — each accomplished a good deal less during their second term than their first, especially in domestic policy.

    Seek on April 5, 2012 at 2:39 pm

I understand peeps reluctancy to even want to vote for Romney but Worry and Infidel are absolutely correct.

If you can’t see it clearly by this time there is NOTHING we can say to convince you but you will regret it it when he can finally drop the facade he slimly veils himself with.

Please pay attention. Obama-Putin does NOT f**k around.

You should have been able to read through his hissy fit to the Supreme Court. The info of their initial vote WAS leaked to him and why would it NOT be? Certain peeps see this charlatan as above it and would dob (tattletale) for him because he is “special”. Look at the Obama-Media and what THEY will do?

Again, I do NOT call him Obama-Putin for NOTHING.

And Worry’s point on the Supreme Court is VERY sobering. Please think and think hard.

Skunky on April 4, 2012 at 5:04 am

It always seems to get down to Supreme Court nominees. So far, the decisions of the Supreme court have done nothing to change the United States’ march to the left, in spite of isolated decisions here and there. A few decisions on the 2nd amendment, while welcome, are minor in the face of the massive bipartisan agreement on foreign policy, and the erosion of most other things this country used to stand for.

If Obamacare is struck down in its entirety before the election, I will acknowledge it as an argument for voting for Romney provided he agrees before the election to appoint only conservative judges. However, if Obamacare is not struck down, I think Republicans lose their last argument for voting for them.

Little Al on April 4, 2012 at 7:11 am

    Little Al, I totally understand where you are coming from. Hell, if we did not have to endure the 3+ years of Obama-Putin, I’d be exactly where you are (except I ALWAYS vote…no matter who is on the ballot. I respect my Liberty too much to ever NOT vote).

    And I also think that Romney has given us a BILLION reasons not to vote for him. I will not believe a word he says!

    However, I am going to vote against Obama-Putin and that means a vote for Romney. I know who Romney is…I’m from the land of RomneyCare!

    And as I stated, it’s too bad the Conservatives/Republicans were not as cohesive and/or smart enough to know that the time to jettison Romney was DURING THE PRIMARIES. We got close, but no guitar!

    I know where you are coming from and I feel for ya but I agree with Jimbo above.

    IF Obama-Putin wins November 6th, THAT’s IT. It will be equal misery and either a slow or quick ride to where and how Chavez took over Venezuela.

    I don’t see how he’d go slow either. He’s already openly expressed his condemnation of having to work with Congress AND the Judiciary. What is left of the facade would just naturally fall away, I reckon.

    Skunky on April 4, 2012 at 12:05 pm


      You may vote for him. I can’t vote for someone completely unprincipled! At least with Obama, you know what you’re getting. And as Debbie has written, if conservatives don’t demand better, nothing in this country will change. Maybe Romney will do a miraculous transformation into a Reagan if he was elected but I’m not holding my breath.

      And I have yet to hear a single persuasive reason why people should pick him over Obama.

      NormanF on April 4, 2012 at 12:58 pm

        Norman, I totally agree BUT the only reason I will vote for Romney IS because I do not want USA to devolve into utter Socialism. If we do, we can’t turn it around so easily.

        BUT for Obama-Putin IS the reason I am voting for Romney. Etch-A-SKetch is right! I did not vote for him on Super-Tuesday because I do not believe in him…at all.

        I was let down by a bunch of Conservatives who DID NOT know enough the time to protest the Republican Establishment WAS during this primary. We got close, but not enough people understood or saw the forest for the trees.

        I dunno…I can barely stand what Obama-Putin gets away with these days let alone him having 4 more years to cement his fundamental change.

        There is a REAL Obama-Putin (and his ugly wife) and a fake Obama-Putin (and his ugly wife) and I know the fine peeps of this site KNOW the difference.

        I will go to the polls knowing I am voting AGAINST Obama-Putin. There won’t be moment of rest IF Obama-Putin gets thrown out.

        I think those with a brain have seen how the Republicans have let us down. There ain’t no ’bout a-doubt it…since 2010 the Republicans have shown how weak and wimpy they are. Look at Boehner and Jihad Darrell. If one didn’t know then they must know now! And there is not ONE strong Republican who takes the Border seriously. I find that disgusting.

        If Obama-Putin loses, then good Conservatives like us HAVE to do something to get rid of the wimpy Republicans…or we’ll just be bailing water soon enough.

        Skunky on April 4, 2012 at 1:53 pm

I think it is insane to give legal status to someone just because they have been here a while and obtained there education here. However, I don’t understand the problem with giving legal status to someone who served in the armed forces and was honorably discharged (and not to take any legal action against them while they are serving). I believe they have earned it. How many Muslims do this?

Can someone please explain?

    In short: You believe that the only way to serve a country is by possessing skills such as: bellicose violence and ability to kill.

    We may as well put a sign at the border:

    “If you are willing to kill, you are welcome here!! – We just want your body. People with brains, no need to apply”

    Cambride Ray on April 5, 2012 at 11:52 am

Re citizenship for serving, first thing is the military is not what it used to be. Numerous articles on this post have discussed the politicization of the military, and the fact that it is becoming a social laboratory for all kinds of strange people, culture and opportunistic social fads.

Aside from this, however, it is something like trotting out the most pitiful examples of sick people in order to pass Obamacare. The fact that there are isolated sick people who can’t fend for themselves is not an argument for passing Obamacare.

Similarly, if there are a few illegal aliens who do a good job in the military, it is similar to the few examples of sick people that are trotted out for Obamacare. The problem is it opens the door for everybody including the massive number of criminals and those who would sponge off the taxpayers, and erode our culture.

Little Al on April 4, 2012 at 9:01 am

i.c.e. will stay on ice because of the self-serving, egomaniacal turds they have running it. It’s all political and management is in it for one thing…themselves. When you appoint people who have never been in the agency, have no experience in that arena, and excel in nothing more than political fellatio/anilingus, this is what you get.

Let’s not lose sight of the lack of intestinal fortitude either; PC is the operative word(s) in dealing with the illegals. The laws and sovereignty of this nation mean very little anymore.

IceNoMore on April 4, 2012 at 10:59 am

I think there is also a longer-term argument for staying home this November, although I can understand voting for Romney as a lesser evil.

But I also think the only way to stop the United States’ drift to the left is for a movement to grow that is capable, either by electoral activity or other direct lawful activity, of building pressure to effectively challenge the left-wingers.

It is beginning to look more and more like such a movement will have to be initiated outside the Republican Party, and voting for Republican candidates could disorient the growth and development of such a movement, at least on a national level.

Almost all of the new Republicans elected in 2010 have made their peace with the Republican (mis)leadership in Congress, and those who haven’t, imperfect as they are, are being shafted by the Republican elite, such as Allen West and Joe Walsh.

For a while I hoped that the Tea Party could be such a movement, but unfortunately Debbie was right, and it seems to have degenerated into a bunch of opportunist warring cliques. But some type of independent movement building on the original promise of the Tea Party is needed, and voting for people such as Romney might forestall the growth of such a movement. That is the main reason I expect to stay home this November, although as I said, I respect the opinions of other posters who look at things differently.

Little Al on April 4, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    Excellent post Little Al. You touched on many vital points.

    Especially regarding the Tea Party. Where the hell are they? They should be out and in front protesting about Oil in USA and how the eco-crazies stand in the way of us drilling and refining the abundancy we have HERE. They let the OWS get out in front and those bastards are coming back in force any day now.

    We are gonna hafta tear it all down to construct it up right. And if we can do it as soon as that idiot Romney wins (I don’t think he will BTW) that’s a good place to start.

    I know what a losing proposition a third party can be but that’s gonna hafta be the deal at first because our backs are against the wall.

    Your post summed up the disappointment pithily. It seems that even in the most dire of times that the sit it out protest will not work because no one ever learned their lesson anyway!

    I will be doing my own state-wide no-no (perhaps) when I DON’T vote for Scott Brown. There is NO WAY I am voting for him in this stupid state that is 99% democrat anyway. I will NOT be voting for Warren…I’ll vote for the biggest nut on the ballot in that category because they’re all nuts here!

    I could be wrong with my tactic and am willing to listen to anyone who thinks so because I know how important the Senate is to obtain.

    Skunky on April 4, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    Cambride Ray on April 5, 2012 at 11:43 am

Skunky, one of the reasons this situation is so frustrating is that it keeps coming up election after election. And the Republican establishment really gets on my nerves, and all the politicos endorsing Romney really put all of us between a rock and a hard place. We need another Ronald Reagan or Barry Goldwater but all the younger elected office-holders seem to just be following Romney.

Little Al on April 4, 2012 at 11:01 pm

How do you like your eggs, well done or over easy. This is what supporters of Israel’s right to exist face in the next election. I sometimes wonder if it is Israel, or Goldman and Sachs that is at the heart of the new PC anti-semitism.

Here’s their response:

– Black folks voted for Obama, by a 98% margin.

– Jewish folks voted for Obama, by a 75% margin.

– Hispanic folks voted for Obama, by a 66% margin.

– Oriental folks voted for Obama, by a 63% margin.

– Gay folks voted for Obama, by an unknown margin.

Hey, GOP, if you want to commit suicide, we Liberals are only happy to witness it!!

I noticed that State’s Bank, one of THE most enthusiastic supporters of Hispanics in general and a Path to Citizenship, is one of your sponsors.

I dare you to criticize them. In fact, the biggest proponent of a Path to Legalization is the US Chamber of Commerce. How about some criticism?

It is like the Republicans are hauling water for Obama with the Ryan Budget plan and now Rubio’s Dream Act. Gives Dems a clear target to attack and idiot Republicans have no clue.
