I really thought Marco Rubio was smarter than this.
So, we have untold millions of criminal aliens here, and more coming all the time, going back and forth, smuggling, buiding terror-cells, and gang-banging, with all that entails. Drug trade, human-traffic trade, who knows what else.
But all that is concentrated on, by the bleeding-hearts and by the anti-Americans alike, are those most visible criminal aliens, meaning those who get a job somewhere and work. The fact that they broke the laws of at least two soveriegn nations just to get here, and that they continue to violate law every day that they remain here, is just glossed over by the big, broad, pity-party brush that says they just came here for a better life. Poor dears.
Well, no kidding. Didn't everyone who ever went anywhere do that?
Does any other soveriegn nation on earth have such open borders? No?
I wonder why not. Maybe they suppose it might be dangerous. Hmm.
They are not undocumented workers; they are criminal aliens.
They are not illegal imigrants; they have filled out no immigration papers.
We have no reason whatsoever to believe that they, or any particular percentage of them, have any interest whatsoever in American citizenship, or in assimilating into the larger American culture. In point of fact, we don't know a damned thing about them, except that they are aliens and they are here illegally.
The Democrat Party knows more about them than the rest of us. The Democrats are currently running foreign language ads in foreign countries, advertising how foreigners can just "show up" in America and apply for food stamps, without answering any questions about how they got there.
What does that tell you?
The criminal alien element in America is sponsored by the Democrat Party. Every un-Constitutional bureaucracy (if it isn't listed in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution, it is un-Constitutional) in America is populated and run by bureaucrats who are Left-leaning union-dues paying Marxocrats, who will quickly and easily grant full government benefits to any criminal alien who applies for them, or who is somehow snagged by them, or recruited by them.
Untold millions of criminal aliens are receiving American tax-supplied benefits, ranging from food stamps to welfare to disability to social security, as well as working illegally for employers who pay them "under the table" without deducting taxes. And, at election time, when the union busses or the ACORN busses show up, they happily hop on board and go cast illegal votes for Democrats.
They are an important part of the Santa Clause vote, and the Demcrat Party is Santa Clause.
So Marco Rubio presents his plan, or his version of the Gang-Of-Eight Plan, in which these poor frightened criminal aliens can come out of the shadows and begin a process of "normalization."
First of all, they're not frightened, and they're not in the shadows. They are quite comfortable here, thanks to super-human efforts of the Marxocrat Party that sponsors them, champions them, defends them and pays them. And receives their illegal votes.
But, Marco would have us know, his plan does not involve amnesty, which would mean complete forgiveness of a crime. No; the participants in his plan would pay a $2,000 fine, an application fee, taxes, and they would have to wait 10 years for the possibility of citizenship. They would have to show that they are gainfully employed - which would mean that they would have to reveal the identity of whoever is illegally employing them - along with the other requirements.
So, they would no longer receive food stamps, welfare, etc., and they would squeal on their boss, and they would pay $2,0000 plus, in return for - getting to wait 10 years for something or other.
Marco is sure they would all just jump at that offer.
Marco really thinks these people want citizenship. In point of fact, it is doubtful in the extreme that many or any of them are looking past tomorrow in their day to day lives. They are here for what they can get, and the Democrats are giving it to them, no questions asked. If they are ever granted citizenship, they will simply radically increase the moron vote, which votes solidly, absolutely Democrat.
If Marco Rubio thinks this plan has even the ghost of a chance of success then he is just dumber than a box of rocks.
Here's a novel plan for dealing with the criminal alien problems that just might work.
Very simple; nothing to it. There is no necessary sequence of steps here; do them all at the same time. Another way of saying the exact same thing would be:
There never was any reason for it to be any more complicated than that. If the law had always been properly enforced, there would never be any significant, major undertaking involved in just getting back to typical sovereign nation border normalcy.

Vic, I think you are a little hard on Rubio for one area of his thinking. He's not exactly stupid, and he's a better candidate than most. You are probably right about the criminal aliens. What do you think about Paul Ryan, who insists that the border be closed first?

If Rubio thinks these people are going to give up the benefits they are already receiving, the comfort they are already given, pay a fine, lose their government benefits for ten years, lose their current ability to vote, etc., then he is stupid.
Ryan, if he wants to build the fence first, is not quite dumber than a box of rocks. He is just as dumb a a box of rocks.
No matter what happens, they are never going to vote Republican. Does Ryan think he can somehow out - Santa Clause the Democrats?
Does he really think they will come forward for a ten year hiatus of the all the benefits and rights they now enjoy, pay a large fine and go to the back of some line? For what? What makes him think they have any interest in citizenship?
This whole subject is stupid. Ryan and Rubio are suckers, at the least.
Ten minutes after their bill passes, Democrat amendments to it will be passed by simple majority vote to add full citizenship and voting rights to the criminal aliens, and if it can't be done through Congress then it will be done through the courts. The Gang of Eight is just giving the Democrats another leg-up in ultimately achieving their goals.

Vic, do you really believe none of them came here to become citizens?

Any time you are talking about millions of people you are talking about millions of individual stories. I believe the overwhelming majority of the criminal alien population don't even know the meaning of the term American Citizenship, and they have no real interest in achieving it.
Those who are not some other form of criminal or are not involved in some other criminal activity, came here for what they can get, and they are already getting it, or they wouldn't still be here. While there may be exceptions to every rule, we are talking about vast numbers here.
All of this is a Democrat trick to gain political ground with the aid of cooperative Republicans. The ink will not be dry on the Gang-Of-Eight Bill before new legislative, executive and judicial efforts are begun to radically modify it into a combination of amnesty and citizenship. It's a glaringly obvious plan to gain untold millions of legitimate Democrat voters, and Republicans are either stupid enough or evil enough to cooperate in its accomplishment.
PS: 45 years ago today, on Memorial Day, 1968, Marcie and I were married. It really seems like yesterday.

PS: Any time the "criminal" or indictable status of a suspect is changed, by law, so that the suspect is no longer indictable for the crime he may have previously committed, that is amnesty, pure and simple. The lying politicos may scream and yell all they want to about how what they propose is not amnesty, but it is still amnesty. They will no longer be "illegal" aliens, but perfectly legally here. And that is amnesty.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

There is nothing wrong with our current border law except for the fact that the government is criminally not enforcing it, as the Constitution, the supreme law of the land, insists. There is nothing wrong with our current immigration law except for the fact that the government is criminally not enforcing it, as the Constitution, the supreme law of the land, insists. By not enforcing Constitutional law, in violation of their oaths of office, our government is engaging in criminal activity.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Democrat rope-a-dope straw villain. We have no need of Comprehensive Immigration Reform. It's just a dirty trick.
The Marco Rubio and the Criminal Aliens story shows our intellectual decline. The plan of Marco Rubio and the Criminal Aliens is the path to Republican Party doom.
How is it that opposing amnesty for millions of illegal aliens is "arrogant"? If my pro-Catholic, pro-American, anti-alternative-ethos position is "arrogant," then, exactly what is the position of those who claim superiority or even equality with it?
Taking a look at Illegal Immigration and Tax Problem solutions. In our view, the minimum wage and income tax have outlived their usefulness, and only contribute to the illegal alien problem.
Kill the illegal alien marketplace, and illegal aliens will leave on their own. Why should we "imagine" life with no Mexico? Shouldn't the Mexicans be trying to imagine life without the USA?
Of Illegal Aliens Vs the Berlin Wall, and Sovereignty Vs the Global Village. Marxism - or, if you will, Social Darwinism - presents the notion of Social Evolution, and predicts a final end of national sovereignty, & a perfect, government-less, Global Village; Heaven on Earth.
Obamunist selective law enforcement grants back-door amnesty to criminal aliens. Obamunist selective law enforcement: yet another violation of the Presidential oath of office.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
