Immigration reform yaaaaaay!!

Marco Rubio is about to go all-in on being The Guy For The GOPers in 2016, more so than he already is The Guy For The GOPers in 2016. And he's doing it via the thorny immigration reform policy which, just like every other damn thing in Washington, has split the parties asunder.

According to Politico, Rubes is about to "fully embrace a measure that is the most significant of his political career so far." 

Which means he'll officially make himself the leading contender for 2016 on the Republican side, or it might damage his brand, or it might do nothing at all.

Rubio is planning on a full on in-your-face Charisma Boy! bombardment via Sunday political talk shows, Rush Limbaugh-like radio shows, and also Spanish-language news outlets.

The Florida Republican has privately briefed individual GOP senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee -- including conservative skeptics John Cornyn of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah -- about the soon-to-be-unveiled proposal, according to sources familiar with the matter. His staff has pitched the plan to conservative thought leaders, including at the National Review and Wall Street Journal editorial board as well as the columnist Charles Krauthammer, sources say.

The main thing for Rubio will be convince fellow far-righters on the immigration reform overhaul, which has been a point of contention within the party.

According to Politico, he plans to do this by convincing them that the plan will be tough on the border, as well as smoothing over their fears of the whole pathway to citizenship thing that would allow 11 million illegal immigrants the chance to apply for citizenship after 13 years.

Teabagger Senator of Utah Mike Lee is not sure if this whole thing is his bag.

"What I told Marco was if we can proceed with this in segments, it would be a lot easier to get it passed," Lee told Politico. "It would be a lot easier for people like me -- people in both Houses and both political parties -- to vote for it. I see no reason why you have to lump everything in one 1,500-page bill and say, 'It's all or nothing.'"

Marco is going all-in like a Poker player, and what happens from here is anybody's guess. Except that nothing will probably happen because, the gun control issue, immigration is a sticky, complicated process where everyone disagrees and make loud angry noises at each other like little kids left unattended.

One timely innovation could be a winning tool in stopping illegal immigration is the biometric national ID card. The politicians declared it too expensive, but then this Gang of Eight, specifically, should measure the positives side against the almost ineffectual intermittent porous border fence and internal enforcement. Any policies would be aided by a mandatory ID card, as illegal aliens would not be able to get an Americans job. There would be absolutely no mitigating circumstances if the employer was detained, if they hadn’t cross referenced the person’s identity through a federal data base. The Liberal media or those who qualify as open border zealots cannot conceal that the introduction of a highly fraud proof security card would be a major benefit. This card issued to citizens and LEGAL RESIDENTS would be of great service to the legal population, not having to compete with people who overstay their visas permanently and those who slip past the border patrol.The card would identify you, by a thumb print and/or an iris eye scan, determining that you could legally work in the U.S. It would certainly be a valuable deterrent to halt the encouragement of further volumes of illegal aliens thinking that either arriving here currently, or after any immigration reform or amnesty?

As an additional advantage it would also recognize the holder as a “Green Card” holder or citizen thus determining who has a right to vote. It would eliminate the uncountable numbers of foreign nationals, felons, dead people and just plain non citizens from voting in our elections, compromising the honor system. In another mode of operation it would distinguish a person’s identity and would go a long way to control criminals using other peoples Social Security numbers for credit fraud or illegal aliens stealing employment.With this biometric document people’s personal information remains safe, and will deter criminals and illegal aliens taking upon themselves to impersonate the real person involved.

Don’t lose the chance to have some influence in illegal immigration or any other issue? Want more information on all pressing subjects, the Liberal Democrats are keeping away from you, then go to the daily reports, news, blogs and articles at American Patrol web site.

ATTN: SEN. RUBIO means well, but doesn’t he recognize that an illegal alien mother can claim citizenship for every child she conceives. That every illegal alien child without the Birthright Citizenship amendment can apply for every kind of welfare as any low income American can collect, that includes $400 to $600.00 dollars each for every number of her offspring. The family can collect $1600.00 to $1800 dollars in one swoop, not forgetting low income housing vouchers.


I'll believe Marco is the real deal, when he, like Jeb!, gets a punctuation mark after his name... Might I suggest:

* Marco¿

* Rubio♂

or my fav

* MarcoRubio†
