McGang of 8 caper tanking 2016 aspirations; now talks “piecemeal approach”
Sen. Marco Rubio appears to be a political casualty of following John McCain, lemming-like, off the amnesty cliff as a member of the so-called Gang of 8. Just months ago, the brash, young Florida Republican was surging in the polls. Now he is barely sucking oxygen. Earlier this month, the conservative Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit presidential straw poll pummeled Rubio, throwing him a mere five percent of the vote. In the Oct. 22, WMUR Granite State Poll, Rubio tied for seventh place with just 4 percent of GOP voters saying they would support him.
In the following video Rubio talks about “solving immigration” saying, “but I don’t think we should not do anything because we can not do everything….I continue to believe that a series of sequential individual bills is the best way, the ideal way, to reform to our immigration system,” he says.
Americans have a right to expect those entering our sovereign nation to do so respectfully and legally. That is the ideal way to support our generous immigration policies, Mr. Rubio. There is no need for “reform.”
As an example, compare the United States to other developed nations* on the single issue of birthright citizenship. Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, France, India, Malta, Great Britain and Portugal have all repealed their Birthright Citizenship laws — the automatic granting of citizenship to children of tourists or illegal aliens born within a nation’s borders or territories.
