There once was a fraud named Barack, Who won selling voters a crock. He lied when he spoke, then the sheeple awoke. Now he falls in the polls like a rock.
Giving illegals amnesty only encourages more of the same. Your question is based upon an erroneous assumption...the same erroneous assumption this entire debate is based upon, and that is, that it is OUR responsibility to 1. either give these people amnesty or 2. do something with them at all. What is THEIR responsibility in this? Where is THAT being discussed at all? They are responsible for their situations, not us. I don't owe them either amnesty or deportation expenses. What WE need to do is arrest any of them we catch and give them the choice to leave or be imprisoned for illegal entry into our country... the same as was always the case when we were a nation of people with common sense and individual responsibility. This is not a group issue. This is an individual issue and should be handled as such. Any INDIVIDUAL who is caught in violation of our laws should be TREATED as an individual in violation of our laws.

Flood America with millions-and-millions of people who have no understanding of American history, freedom, or heritage and, who along with the current generation of public school-indoctrinated natural Americans, are being taught to despise all the above. What you then have is not a melting pot, but a polyglot, multicultural, simmering stew pot of chaos, with no cohesive set of values, and no chance of unifying against an increasingly political-elite US federal government tyranny -- a nation, not of citizens, but of subjects, only interested in what benefits are associated with their own tribal membership. There is no more 'equal justice under the law' when their are separate laws associated with the particular tribe to which you belong. That arrangement suits the Political Class in D.C. well -- every tribe clamoring for special consideration of which only the politicians can extend to them. We're being corralled and neutered by our own ignorance and grafting after special consideration based on politically-constructed false premises of "social justice." I don't know what motivates Marco Rubio, but I do know what motivates John McCain and Chuck Schumer. For Rubio to have allowed himself to be recruited by the likes of these points to either an extraordinary naivety at best, and total lack of character and honesty, at worst.
Embracing illegals & Muslims is a device of the Left to destroy our sense of national unity. They’re purposely inviting in 10s of millions alien to our values, no respect for our heritage, no understanding of the Declaration of Independence or Constitution, & no allegiance to the United States of America. They more they dilute American society --in effect -- by trivializing and tribalizing us all into special interest groups based on skin color and other politically-constructed 'barriers' to a national consciousness, the easier it will be to alienate those of us who would reduce the power they are, in doing so, angling to maintain and expand over us. The Democrats are the leaders of this movement, but the Republicans (themselves, harboring the same fear of the Tea Party small government and less D.C. control movement and equally aware of what is at stake to their continued elitist status) are their willing accomplices. None of this putsch for incorporating into our society upwards of 30 million illegally-entered, undocumented, and foreign ideologically aligned individuals is being done of humane motive; it is being done by BOTH parties out of their own selfish political ambition and desperation to fend off the Tea Party and those of like mind, who they see as the greatest challenge to their continued erosion of our Constitution, our holding them responsible for the damage they have already caused with their "social" meddling, and their destruction of our economy, individual responsibility, the rule of law, and our individual liberty.
The pathway to citizenship, it seems to me, should begin on the other side of America's borders.

Obama's War on School Vouchers The president downplays school choice in his new $3.8 trillion budget - WSJ 2/14/12 The Opportunity Scholarship Program offers vouchers to low-income students to attend private schools. A 2010 study published by Univ of Arkansas found the scholarship recipients had graduation rates of 91%. The graduation rate for D.C. public schools was 56%, 70% for students who entered the lottery for a voucher but didn't win. B/c his teachers union allies oppose school choice for poor people, Mr. Obama ignores or downplays these findings. He repeatedly has tried to shutter the program, even though it is clearly advancing his stated goal of increasing graduation rates and closing the black-white achievement gap.

When Obama first got into office, in 2009, one of his first acts was to cancel the D.C. school voucher program at the behest of the public school unions, as part of his (then) $1.6 TRILLION budget (3x Bush's $535 billion last yr budget). When Boehner became Speaker of the House in Jan 2011, one of his first acts was to use Congress to reinstate the successful D.C. school voucher program for (mostly) poor, black children and their parents who were being denied a choice to attend alternative private schools where their children would be in safe and productive learning environments. Obama continues looking for ways to KILL the D.C. school voucher program.
