Reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature," said Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican who is among the lawmakers working on legislation. *** If this guy is the brightest star in the GOP firmament how's it going to play with Latino voters in 2016 that Ricky Rubio was the primary obstacle to passing Immigration Reform during Barack Obama's presidency? Fortunately for him he'd not be the first Senator casting a floor vote against a bill he helped create while in committee. Fortunately for voters it provides a clue to them ABOUT a candidate's character, not merely that he IS a character.
It's premature to say there's a deal, because democrats need to agree to secure the border before any amnesty is granted. Democrats screwed over the American people last time they promised to secure the border in return for amnesty. It's not going to happen again.
It's premature to say there's a deal, because democrats need to agree to secure the border before any amnesty is granted. **** Why wasn't this possible to do during Republican administrations and in the years preceding 2009? Because of Democrats in DC? Lame. The numbers of illegals to the country have gone down during BHO's administration, but a totally sealed border is now the demand of Republicans wishing to stall any significant legislation during this administration. +++

– April 23, 2012: The Pew Hispanic Center announced that net migration from Mexico to the United States had stopped and possibly even reversed. The center noted that from 2005 to 2010, about 1.4 million Mexicans immigrated to the United States, and about 1.4 million Mexican immigrants and their U.S.-born children moved from the United States to Mexico.+++
The undesirables are getting deported. Should we also deport desirable American shooled illegal-immigrant status kids. Even if that were the "right" thing to do it's still probably not in the national interest to do it....Ricky Rubio for president? Why not Ricky Martin?
