Republican Senator and possible Vice Presidential candidate Marco Rubio now says he supports a version of the the Dream Act amnesty for illegal alien kids.
In a recent interview with Fox News personality Geraldo Rivero, a supporter of amnesty, Rubio declared, “I do want to help out these (illegal immigrant) kids. The Dream Act is a way to help them out.”
The Dream Act is a bill designed to grant amnesty to illegal alien children. The Obama Administration has been effectively implementing this amnesty through relaxed enforcement ever since efforts to pass it through Congress failed.
Rubio previously described himself as a pro-border security or a “border security first” Republican.
“This betrayal is exactly why we have to keep fighting amnesty and why I keep telling our supporters that amnesty is not dead,” warns U.S. Border Security Council National Spokesman Steve LeBlanc. “These politicians, especially ones with national political aspirations, will turn on the American people in a heartbeat.”
Rubio says that he doesn’t support the Dream Act amnesty in its current form. Instead he wants the bill slightly modified so that anyone amnestied under this new law can’t become citizens.
“The notion that we are going to have two sets of immigration laws, one for people who come here legally and one for people who get amnesty is ridiculous,” says LeBlanc. “That will never happen. This is all just political doublespeak coming from a politician who desperately wants to give amnesty to as many illegals as possible. If Senator Rubio truly cared about immigrant kids, he would make sure that parents understand the consequences for breaking America’s laws and that sneaking their children into the U.S. is an immoral and irresponsible thing to do.”
According to various Media reports, Rubio is trying to craft a “compromise” on an illegal immigration bill that can pass the Senate.
“From what we understand of the situation, it seems Rubio has completely sold out and is working with liberal Democrats to craft a slighty modified version of Harry Reid’s S.6 Amnesty Plus bill,” LeBlanc says. “We are going to fight any such compromise and I predict that Marco Rubio will not be the first Hispanic President thanks to his stand on it.”
