Rubio: If we can’t come up
with a solid guest-worker
program, we’ll have 10 million
new illegals here in a decade

Hot Air, by Allahpundit

What’s wrong with this picture? SEN. MARCO RUBIO, in an interview for “Behind the Curtain,” on the likelihood of immigration reform going to President Obama’s desk this year – the first time Rubio has said this: “A lot of it is going to hinge on the viability of a guest worker program. There are elements in organized labor that don’t want one. I think, really, that’s going to become the critical issue in this debate … whether we can create a viable guest worker program that protects American workers, but also ensures that in the future

Comments:
A guest worker program is one of the essentials. It gets everyone into a computer base so we know who they are, where they are and what they´re doing.

I thought we already have a guest worker program... What is wrong with it?

How about securing the borders? I guess modifying the guest-worker program is more important than securing the border and who´s to say guest workers will refuse to leave once they get here?

Wow, amnesty certainly is a detriment to more illegals coming to the country isn´t it? What an idiotic statement, " If we don´t do amnesty now there will be 10 M more in a decade."And only an idiot would think this statement makes any sense at all.

Rubio´s plan along with his gang of 8 crumbs is amnesty pure and simple it starts on day 1, without any upgrade to border security at all, just more empty promises that will never be fulfilled we´ve heard it all before.

I will never vote for this man, because he refuses to uphold the laws of the United States of America.

We are never going to deport everyone who came here illegally so it would be helpful to have a plan that we can actually enact.

If they can´t get jobs or benefits, they will self deport. I also think there should be a hugh fee on every dollar they send back to their home country.

Perhaps Rubio is telling us who he really is. It´s who I thought he was all along.

Just like blacks can´t see past the color of their skin, he can´t see beyond his ethnicity.

Frankly, I am sick of the tail wagging the dog.

If the greatness of the United States was built on the backs of anyone, it was built of the backs of the Chinese who built the railroads, the true backbone of America´s success. I don´t see their Chinese descendents whinning their asses off with the "you owe me" attitude of our two biggest minorities.

One other question. Who is going to benefit from a "solid guest-worker program"? I´d just like to know because Rubio and no other politician alive now or ever is doing it out of the goodness of their hearts.

Follow the money.

Exactly no. 1. We have a guest worker program, but it´s easier to break the law. Immigration reform means slow walking amnesty, surrender of our sovereignty and open borders.

The government can´t even control the borders, and I should trust them to run a guest worker program? Congress needs to stop writing immigration laws and start putting the heat on the Executive Branch to control the border, to enforce the laws on the books, and to stop using Executive Orders to get around the laws.

Rubio is wrong. The US Congress should decide the number of foreign workers allowed into the USA based upon US labor needs and how so-called foreign guest workers would affect the wages and working conditions of US workers, and not on a guess of how many prospective illegal aliens might want to sneak into the USA in the next ten years.

The way to keep prospective illegal aliens out of the USA is to effectively enforce laws like an enhanced e-verify system working in conjunction with a modern US social security card with a digital photograph so that employers will know exactly who they are hiring, and that the social security card presented to them is being used by its lawful bearer and not some illegal alien impostor.

Such an enhanced e-verify system with electronic verification would also tell employers that the social security card presented to them is a valid card and not a counterfeit. Once such an employee verification system is up and running in no time the word would get out to prospective illegal aliens around the world that if they come here they will not be able to get any US job worth them having. Once that happens most illegal aliens, other then criminals, will not longer come here. That´s they way to stop mass uncontrolled illegal immigration.

Unfortunately both libertarian Republicans who want an unlimited supply of foreign cheap labor by legalizing future illegal aliens through guest worker programs and the liberal Democrats who want to make every illegal alien, and every guest worker, an eventual liberal Democrat voter always fight such common sense immigration enforcement initiatives tooth and nail. that´s why there is an out of control illegal alien problem now.

Kobe Bryant and a business associate have a running bet on the staying power of the pop stars Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. Bryant, who wears self-discipline like a badge, has long favored the more predictable Perry’s odds, and found in Bieber’s recent tabloid episodes hints of a looming implosion: talent spurned. As he and the associate walked into the dining room at the Four Seasons, in downtown Miami, in late January, the associate, a Belieber, mentioned that Bryant had been giving him a hard time about it for years.

Extension of Health Law
Signup Period Worries Insurers
Wall Street Journal, by Louise Radnofsky & Anna Wilde Matthews    Original Article

The Obama administration´s decision to let some consumers enroll in health plans beyond Monday´s deadline sparked concern among insurers and prompted fresh attacks from opponents of the health law. A surge of consumers is expected to hit HealthCare.gov before Monday´s deadline to sign up for insurance and avoid a penalty under the Affordable Care Act. In the past, heavy traffic has stalled the federal site. On Wednesday, U.S. officials said consumers who say they began trying to sign up for health coverage by Monday´s deadline will be allowed to continue after that date and won´t face penalties for remaining uninsured.

Democrats push for new changes
to ObamaCare amid midterm fears

Several Democratic senators moved Thursday to "improve" parts of ObamaCare, proposing numerous changes to the law amid concerns that it could cost Democrats House seats and possibly the Senate in November. The proposals came from a half-dozen senators, some of whom are facing reelection in the fall and most of whom represent moderate-to-conservative states. Since Democrats currently control the Senate, the proposals will put Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in an uncomfortable position -- forcing him to decide whether to put the bills to a vote or sideline them, despite the political risks for his party´s incumbents.

Transparency and truth are the fuels that run sophisticated civilizations. Without them, the state grinds to a halt. Lack of trust — not barbarians on the frontier, global warming or cooling, or even epidemics — doomed civilizations of the past, from imperial Rome to the former Soviet Union. The United States can withstand the untruth of a particular presidential administration if the permanent government itself is honest. Dwight Eisenhower lied about the downed U-2 spy plane inside the Soviet Union. Almost nothing Richard Nixon said about Watergate was true. Intelligence reports of vast stockpiles of WMD in Iraq proved as accurate

Does the Ukraine crisis mark the beginning of a new cold war? The answer from President Obama is a firm no. “The United States does not view Europe as a battleground between East and West, nor do we see the situation in Ukraine as a zero-sum game. That’s the kind of thinking that should have ended with the cold war,” he told a Dutch newspaper. The president is partially correct. Unlike the Soviet Union, Russia has neither the intention nor the capability to challenge the entire European order, and it is certainly not mounting a global revolutionary movement. Nevertheless, it is

NEW YORK-- New York state has the most segregated public schools in the nation, with many black and Latino students attending schools with virtually no white classmates, according to a report released Wednesday. The report by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles looks at enrollment trends from 1989 to 2010. In New York City, the largest school system in the U.S. with 1.1 million pupils, the study notes that many of the charter schools created over the last dozen years are among the least diverse of all, with less than 1 percent white enrollment at 73

Republican starlets Rick Perry and Sarah Palin are both known for their personalities, love of guns, sexiness, and moments of TV humiliation, but only one of them is doing something to avoid forever being labelled an idiot. After his intellectual humiliation during the last presidential election cycle — during which he was unable to remember his own policy points — Perry is becoming considerably more wonkish than we’ve previously known him, fashioning himself as something of an elder statesman, in stark contrast to Palin.

If his frequent trips to Iowa are any indication, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has his eyes set on the White House. But there´s just one catch: Cruz was not born in the U.S. So is Cruz even eligible to serve as president? The answer is yes. Here´s why. Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, in 1970. His mother was American and his father was Cuban. Before his birth, Cruz´s parents moved from Houston to Canada to take jobs in the Alberta oil industry. The family returned to Texas in 1974. Although born abroad, Cruz received U.S. citizenship at birth. The reason is because

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.

At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
