Marco Rubio accused of hypocrisy, "stabbing" immigrant kids "in the back" over tax bill

Hispanic business leader Charles Garcia tees off on FL. Sen. Marco Rubio on CNN.com:

How does Sen. Marco Rubio curry favor with Hispanic voters and at the same time burnish his tea party credentials?

Easy. By saying one thing and doing another.

On May 10, Rubio, a Florida Republican, attempted to reframe his Dream Act proposal to give special visas to children of undocumented workers if they attend college or serve in the military. He said, "But I would just say this is really not an immigration issue; it's a humanitarian issue." On that same day, he quietly submitted a bill that would severely threaten humanitarian assistance to nearly 4 million children living in poverty. These are U.S. citizens. But to Rubio they are guilty by association. Through no fault of their own their parents are undocumented workers.

Currently, a credit is available to undocumented workers who report their income to the IRS through the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number program, created in 1996, making them eligible for a Child Tax Credit. For many children, this payment ($1,000 per child) is the difference between abject poverty and the ability to survive.

Rubio had a different take last week:

“The bill’s pretty straightforward. There are people in this country filing for child tax credits for children who don’t even live in the United States and it has been documented and it was never intended for that purpose,” he said. “It’s not even legal to do it now. All this does is say if you don’t have a Social Security Number, and you did file for the tax credit, you have to file paperwork proving that those children who are receiving the tax credit are here in the United States."

Here's the rest of Garcia's post.

Not many Americans have comprehended that if; IF Congress passed an amendment of ‘THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP BILL’, there wouldn’t be any more open door of instant citizenship for their children. The 400.000 children who are smuggled through entry ports would no longer qualify for instant citizenship, thereby disabling to some extent unfunded court mandates. It would not be that feasible to bring their unborn child, here unless one parent was a citizen. If enacted the ‘BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP LAW’ would end this hundred billion dollar gift certificate by the left and some Republicans. It would lower classroom size, halt the multiculturalism that is destroying our school performance and return some sanity to our laws of immigration enforcement

As an example Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has a miserable enforcement grade of "C-". He was out to erase E-Verify, under fund the border fence from the beginning of the Democratic administration. He is also solely to blame from the earliest vote to halt the incomprehensible theft of illegal aliens stealing $4.6 billion dollars in child tax credits, when most of the children have no residence in the United States. This is bar far the most disgusting state of affairs and Congress has just woken up to the situation.

JUDICIAL WATCH is a public watchdog group Promoting Integrity, Transparency and Accountability in Government, Politics and the Law. They uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities. Finally ALIPAC informs the public about the coming nightmare of OVERPOPULATION that is already exhibiting itself in our deteriorating infrastructure. TELL YOU’RE POLITICIANS YOU HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE IF THEY PRESS FOR ANY MORE ARMNESTIES, YOU CAN REACH THEM AT THE FEDERAL CLEARING PHONE CENTER AT 202-224-3121.
Join multiple millions of TEA PARTY members and don’t let the Socialist drive us into the dark ages again? We must be very vigilant as these elections in California, and some of the other 50 states as non citizens are voting and will again, including the general election.
SAY NO PRO –ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT LIBERAL SOCIALIST--SANCTUARY CITY—OR BEING HOODWINKED BY GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN OR ANY STATE GOVERNOR MORE TAXES, TO SUPPORT ILLEGAL MIGRANT, IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR FAMILIES. GO HOME, LET THERE OWN COUNTRIES PAY FOR THEIR NEEDS AND NOT A FINANCIAL BURDEN FOR U.S. TAXPAYERS
Every American state should take a page from the state of Missouri, who denies they have any illegal aliens in their midst. The "Show Me" state has once again shown us how it should be done? There wants to be more publicity and disclosure concerning what Missouri has done; so, let's pass this around the country.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri.

In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri. And so NO individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008, a measure was approved requiring the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to validate the immigration status of all person arrested, inform the federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have admittance to taxpayer’s benefits such as food stamps and health care through the state’s Health net.


In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri’s public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States.

In Missouri, all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT consciously awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.

So, while Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, South Carolina, Florida has made national news for policing laws, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this inexplicable issue - but on a step-by-step basis. States as Florida are waiting on the outcome of the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Arizona’s cry for help, from their crippling financial immigration occupation?

The state of Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT welcome in the state and they will certainly NOT receive public benefits (that's public assistance) at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

The usual open border entities are defying--THE AMERICAN PEOPLE--and are implicit in this weakening of our laws is Janet Napolitano, head of the Homeland Security, Eric Holder running the Department of Justice. We all must realize that BLANKET AMNESTY on the immediate horizon if Obama is returned in November to the white House. Liberals will pull out all the stops to collapse anything that smells of immigration enforcement, including the left’s politicians ignoring illegal aliens voting nationwide. Anybody who has investigated the Democratic leadership would find they slowly weaken 287 G that gave regular police training to question suspicious people about their immigrant status? But oddly currently however the administration has mandated ‘Secure Communities’ which curbs illegal aliens who have been caught, and now subjected to fingerprinting and reviewed by Homeland Security and the ICE branch. Arizona County Sheriff Joe Ariapo was marked by radical groups as was his office; his deputies having a incredulous success until illegal immigration groups didn’t condone him apprehending not just alien criminal, but illegal aliens who have snubbed our laws in his jurisdiction.

By now most business are cognizant of the federal program E-Verify? It distinguishes US citizens and legal residents from illegal labor. Although not flawless, it has a 99.6 success rate and observably will overtime become even more constructive to business that believes in the "Rule of Law." Opponents in both the business sector and even on Capitol Hill have released a torrent of abuse against the application and both parties have refused to vote on this mandated law. That includes its function to reveal counterfeit documentation and spurious ID and reject foreign workers, so American can be hired. So even if you are flagged, and eligible to work, irregularities are resolved by GOING TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE TO BE EXONERATED? ONLY ILLEGAL LABOR WILL AVOID TURNING TO SSA FOR RESOLVING THIS ISSUE.


The open border conspirators may be defeated, when the federal Supreme Court a makes a major decision this month on Arizona policing laws. It could change the outlook of all 50 states, which are observing with great scrutiny if the central government says only there power is absolute. That Arizona cannot protect its own people from unfettered movement of illegal aliens, that they must keep paying for the thieves that are stealing our sovereignty and public entitlements But as E-Verify are perfected it needs to become a permanent tool in the incomplete arsenal of immigration enforcement. It needs to reach out to every company, big and small, in our country and every individual who works there? E-Verify eventually will expel foreign national from the workplace, without financial appropriations on a large scale. These people will self-deport when they cannot be hired anymore.

Businesses will be facing huge fines and prison as the ultimate deterrent. In time it will save our ailing schools, health care, home mortgages and government welfare system. Look to NUMBERSUSA for honest an answer, that includes costs to taxpayers for the new blanket AMNESTY. Which Senators and Republicans, which Governors, Mayors and other elected officials are anti-US American Worker and immigration upgrades? Illegal Immigration, the leaking border region, chain migration, sanctuary cities will certainly be an issue before we arrive at the presidential election. Sanctuary states as California, Nevada, and New York are overwhelmed by the need for more taxes, to pay for the overload of foreign nationals.

California is already suffering from a 16 billion dollar deficit and its liberal Governor, and mostly far left assembly are already determined to siphon of more taxes, from one of the highest taxes rates in the nation. Even more dismal for the future of California is that individuals are trying to pass a state approved Amnesty, for their millions of outlaws. How more insane can this be, when they are already running a huge deficit, by giving illegal aliens welfare, food stamps, health care in the form of MediCAL, Section 8 housing and a education for their children to K-12, although this isn’t true as they are passing laws so these students can appropriate state tax payer dollars for college. Many of educated U.S. born children cannot get into college, as they cannot afford the tuition fees.

You're Stupid #RealTalk

Not many people like yourself seem to be leaving reality. 90% of the things you stated are either false, poorly thought out, and most likely led by your fear that one day those people are soon going to be a majority and you will become a minority(in fact its already happening). You talk about how educated you are and yet you say all these ignorant statements that not only contradict your claims of being educated but also take away your credibility.
By the way do you want to know why you can't get into college? its either one of two things.
1. You don't have the grades to get into a 4 year college, judging from your comments that doesn't seem implausible.
2. Your lazy ass doesn't want to apply for financial aid, because if you really couldn't afford college you'd know that all you'd have to do is apply for financial aid and your ass would be 2/3's of the way to going to college.

also going to school IS NOT A RIGHT, ITS A PRIVILEGE. Whether you're a U.S Citizen or not is irrelevant you can go to college at any time,given that you actually want to go and you're not just complaining to try to make yourself look like the victim. "Many of educated U.S. born children cannot get into college, as they cannot afford the tuition fees." In case you didn't process the information from earlier guess what sweet cheeks? there's this thing called financial aid. Look it up, here ill get you started www.google.com...... you're welcome.
