Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Rubio is First Out of the Gate With Immigration Specifics

Rate this Entry

Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio said he was in favor of piecemeal immigration reform, but he's now promoting a strategy that is almost comprehensive. He would like to introduce several bills instead of a comprehensive one. But it sounds like he's not pushing a go slow pass one bill and wait a while until the next approach. And he says he could live with a comprehensive bill even if it is not his preference. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he's promoting an immigration legislative strategy with the following features:


- increase green card numbers for highly skilled immigrants


- create a modernized agricultural worker program for permanent and temporary workers


- an e-Verify mandate


- Stronger border enforcement provisions, but no preconditions


- legalize people who pay fines, do community service, pay back taxes, etc.


- legazlized individuals likely will possibly get a path to green cards and citizenship and it won't take forever; they must get in the back of the line between people currently waiting on green cards


- DREAMers will get an expedited path

    "Obama Will Seek Citizenship Path in One Fast Push"

    "Mr. Obama and Senate Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, the officials said, resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces -- separately addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners -- which might be easier for reluctant members of their party to accept."

    This ambitious agenda will only de rail the whole process. Just seeing John Boehner's appointment in house for immigration, it doesn't look like ambitious agenda will go anywhere. They need to be smart.

    At some point of time Mr Rubio needs to explain what is amnesty and what is not. He is pretty much proposing what Democrats want and it just makes me wonder how what he is proposing is not amnesty

    He will not get nominated in the GOP full of racist and bigoted white southerners, no matter what!
