Marco Rubio on Presidential Politics and Newt's Immigration Stance

 I have this feeling Marco is going to be raked over the coals for his stance on immigration.  I happen to agree with him on most of what he says.  There are some cold hard realities to face; we do not have the political will to deport 11 million people.  The visa system is broken and doesn't work for the needs of the country.  If you are a low skilled worker from Mexico or South America and willing to come and work as migrant farm worker, the visa process is next to impossible.  That must be fixed.  The  borders must be secured.  We then need to figure out what to do with the otherwise law abiding people who have made a home in this country.  He is right, they shouldn't not get citizenship, but a worker's visa is a humane way of handling the problem.

I'm not sure this is a new message for Rubio. I think he's been consistent.

I'm all for being humane, but the law is supposed to be fair, not compassionate.

Republicans need to come up with palatable and realistic immigration policies that show respect for those who abide by the law.

But Klik, what do you mean by abide by the law? Is it people who otherwise have no problems with the law, or do you mean that since they were in the country working without proper documentation they are not within the law? Which of course they were not.

I just don't see us deporting millions upon millions of people, some of which who were brought here as children who had no choice in the matter.

As I see it we have two main jobs to do, secure the borders then get a workers visa program in place. Once those are done correctly I think that people will begin to soften on people who have built a life here. But until the borders are secure we can't do anything that is meaningful.

I have no desire to be "humane" to illegal alien invaders. There is plenty of will to ship them ALL out.

And those who want to let them stay can get the hell out too.

Not as much as you may believe sablegsd. But the one thing that there is a great deal of will for is to secure the border.

As I said, this is all academic until the border is actually secured. If we deport them, many of them will just come back again.
