Rubio’s effort to woo right on immigration reform continues with Hannity appearance

by George Bennett | April 24th, 2013

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio‘s attempts to get conservatives to support — or at least not vehemently oppose — immigration reform continued Tuesday night with an appearance on Sean Hannity‘s Fox News show.

Rubio played on the right’s dislike of President Barack Obama, arguing that the administration has done a poor job of handling of border security and contending that passing immigration reform would force the administration to get tougher.

“I think people have a good reason to be skeptical about immigration reform at the outset, because this administration has not done a good job of enforcing the law. What I have found over the last few days is that one of the biggest obstacles we face here is a lack of trust in the administration’s willingness to enforce the law,” Rubio told Hannity.

“But my point is, if we don’t do anything, that’s exactly what you are leaving in place. The only way that I know how to make the administration, this administration or a future administration, secure the border, is to pass a law that forces them to secure the border. And that’s what I’m working on, and that’s what our bill does. It requires them to spend upwards of 5.5 billion dollars on a border security plan, on a fencing plan. In addition to that, it requires the full implementation of e-verify. It requires the full implementation of an entry-exit tracking system. That is just so much better than what we have in place right now. And so, if we don’t do anything, or if we can’t get those things done, then what stays in place is what we have right now. How is that good for us?”

    Too bad Romney didn’t get elected. Self-deport would be so much cheaper.

  2. Protect our borders. Says:

    Our borders are not secured. They are porous.

    The people will continue to flock to the USA to take advantage of all that we offer.

    The State of Israel which is in a very tenuous area of the world, has built walls, is patrolled and those who enter illegally are DEPORTED. They are not offered citizenship because they have been in Israel for years.

    Time to vote for candidates who will support protecting our borders.

    Too much lying and fudging of statistics or just ignoring of important issues obfuscates a serious, serious threat to the US’s security, economics and social structure.

    If the latest revelation regarding the FBI, CIA & Homeland security to monitor terrorists, even when notified by a foreign country, in the is case, Russia, does not ‘encourage’ the belief that our government knows what the hell is going on and is monitoring the situation.

    Those killed and maimed by the Boston bombers are victims of continuing ineptitude of our government and their failure to act.

    Poor governering.
