Senator Rubio comments on today’s DHS announcement


Friday, June 15, 2012


Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding today’s announcement by the Department of Homeland Security regarding its immigration enforcement policies:

“There is broad support for the idea that we should figure out a way to help kids who are undocumented through no fault of their own, but there is also broad consensus that it should be done in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future. This is a difficult balance to strike, one that this new policy, imposed by executive order, will make harder to achieve in the long run.

“Today’s announcement will be welcome news for many of these kids desperate for an answer, but it is a short term answer to a long term problem. And by once again ignoring the Constitution and going around Congress, this short term policy will make it harder to find a balanced and responsible long term one.”

  1. Really? “… undocumented through no fault of their own…” ??? How about getting documented once you’re old & smart enough [hopefully before you hit 30] to realize you’re undocumented?!! It’s nobody’s fault anymore — my parents, my grandparents, the coyotes who took me across the border…. Damn the law, we don’t care about it; expedience is the thing, baby.
    So why don’t we abolish the Border Patrol now and return all that salary & pension $$$ to the taxpayers.

  2. The more we give in to illegals, the worse the problem will become, and it’s already plenty bad.

  3. Marco’s being used by the libs to push this crap and break the law; he doesn’t have the answer either but he could have push back harder than he has. We need to get back the Senate with ppl who have a real spine.

  4. So once these students are “legalized’ it would be a shame to deport their parents, smaller siblings , grandparents that will have no means of support in ….. where ever. berrakko just keeps on rewarding “bad” behaviour. we don’t need no stinking immigration laws, seems to be his cry.
