Rubio is Acting as Both Good Cop and Bad Cop on Immigration

    "so long as we take measures that ensure that this never happens again. In particular, most conservatives are ready to support immigration reform, so long as it takes serious steps to prevent another wave of illegal immigration in the future."

    By that standard, the senate bill is woefully inadequate and is fundamentally flawed in that it grants mass legalization before ANY step to prevent future illegal immigration. In a recent poll, 73 percent of voters say those measures should be completed before other changes to immigration policy go into effect. The public seems to understand the lesson of '86 and do not simply trust the executive branch. Yet an insulting '86 style bill has been foisted on us again. It is so sure to fail that the only reasonable conclusion to draw is that its proponents want it to fail and are just being fraudulent in trying to get it passed:

    this latest gambit by Rubio to bamboozle conservatives retains the bill's fundamental, and flawed, structure -- the amnesty comes first, complete and irrevokable, with enforcement promised for sometime in the future, and dependent on the executive branch's continued commitment to enforcement. But once the administration has legalized the illegal population, everyone knows that it will not honor its end of the bargain by vigorously and unapologetically preventing any new illegal immigration and deporting all those who didn't qualify for the amnesty. No one who has been awake for the past four years can honestly believe otherwise.

    So long as that structure remains, the bill cannot work as promised -- and anyone who votes for it is saying, clearly and unequivocally, that America's security and sovereignty just isn't that important to him.

    Another example of fraudulent intent is that Schumer will not even say how many people the bill will let in. Given that the amount of people let in is the single most fundamental aspect of immigration policy, Schumer's deception is beyond the pale.

    Looks like the house immigration talks are near collapse. Democrats would let the bill fail than budge on the free health care.

    If republicans kill this immigration bill, there will never be a US President from the GOP, EVER.

    That's the line Lindsey Graham is pushing: "If we're not able to pass immigration reform in 2013 and it's the Republican Party's fault, we're dead in 2016."

    But the premise is that all immigration reform is the same, i.e., it doesn't matter what's actually in the bill. CIR bills have something to offend everyone but the Gang could have made it tough for Republicans to oppose had they come up with a good faith bill. Instead, S. 744 is SO bad that it's a piece of cake for Republicans to oppose--and they're actually figuring out how to oppose THIS bill without even having to take a stand against amnesty in general:

    "In 1986, the American people were promised that, in exchange for granting legal status to illegal immigrants, the border would be secured and the law enforced. Washington broke these promises," they wrote. "Unfortunately, the so-called 'Gang of Eight' immigration bill, S. 744, repeats these mistakes."
