“I do want to help out these kids. The Dream Act is a way to help them out,” Rubio said in an interview

But he is working with his Senate colleagues to find a way to “legalize someone’s status in this country with a significant amount of certainty about their future without placing them on a path toward citizenship.
So last year he was considering the Dream Act, today he's warning us about amnesty

How in the hell is this a flip-flop by Rubio? He is merely stating what he thinks Obama will do. How does that equate to agreeing with Obama and being a flip-flopper? The OP has a reading comprehension problem.

Rubio has seen his numbers drop as a result of his support for a bipartisan immigration bill in the Senate. The Tea Party doesn't like that word--bipartisan--and they are punishing him for not holding the hard line of no working with the other side on anything--ever. We're going to see him backpedaling as fast as he can now as he tries to get back in their good graces.

The GOP continues to eat its own...

Rubio is not a conservative Republican so no, he isn't one of them and they aren't therefore eating their own. He is just a Neocon in sheep's clothing. However, there was no flip-flopping by him in this article. He merely stated that Obama might use executive to pass an amnesty.

It's what they do. They want to demonize those of us for the rule and the enforcement of our immigration laws therefore they lie and call us anti-"immigrant". That's just a baldfaced lie. Most Americans opposed to illegal immigration are not anti-"immigrant".

Horrible formation of an aphorism...

There is a difference between disagreeing with someone's position, and calling someone a RINO, implying that they're not even a legitimate part of your group.

UPDATED: It's funny that I went looking for a link to show you the offensive behavior I was referring to, when actually I could have just presented a link to a couple of the messages that were posted in this thread.

Just to be clear. There will be no "amensty" EO by any US president. Secondly, No Republican President[whenever that happens again] is going to "remove" "mexicans" from this country en masse.

Republicans need to focus on important issues like H., NBC and CNN; and stop scaring themselves over immigration fantasy.

If you take fantasy out of the equation, what's left of today's GOP?
