In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nationís estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements.

Marco Rubio: In immigration reform, legalization comes first

Anyone else smell a rat? Sounds just like 1986 all over again where the border wasn't secured after the fact either.

Rubio's brown trumps his tea.

Just come out and say it..amnesty and that's it. No other fixing or reforming.
Because that's what it truly is all about..the amnesty.

This bill is a betrayal of all those who have done it and are doing it legally.

I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Rubio (like McCain) is in the pocket of George Soros. This was way before this "gang of 8" crap came about. So now, hearing that Rubio is so invested in legalization isn't surprising.

That said, I feel that a lot of the nationwide dislike of illegals is based upon racism.

No, most of the dislike/objection to illegals is based on our laws and their negative impact on our nation. Since they are from many nationalities and races what race are you speaking of?

To me, if it is not important to follow our laws; we should all know. This should not be just for those that want to break into our country. Legal citizens and legalized citizens should also be allowed to break our laws and be rewarded – it is only fair. Perhaps our government should turn a blind eye if we don't want to pay taxes – it isn't like breaking into a nation (it's just about money). Besides; our politicians are obviously overpaid (considering the job they are doing)!

This particular legislation is not interested in tightening border security. I also feel that we should have no troops, fighting wars in other countries; if we are not going to protect our own borders. Why should events, half way around the globe, worry us if we have literally open borders? Security should start at home.

We did not fight wars and pay taxes to just hand our Country over to whoever feels that it should be theirs.

This is why I've been skeptical all along. I never believed that anyone was serious about securing the border. It will be amnesty, more illegal immigration, and cries for another amnesty. Lather, rinse, repeat.
