Tea party groups plan protest outside of Rubio's office saying he 'betrayed' them

@learyreports

This could be interesting. A group of pro-reform groups also plans a noon protest at Rubio's Tampa office.  News release:" Come join members of Mi Familia Vota, Florida, clergy members, allies, and MoveOn, as we participate in a vigil at Senator Rubio's office to ask that he see the error of his ways regarding increased militarization, accepting campaign funds from GEO, an arm of ICE, and also adding English proficiency before undocumented Americans may be legal permanent residents. That's way before they would be eligible for citizenship. We will pray for him to do the right thing."

Saying Sen. Marco Rubio has "broken promises" on immigration a group of tea party groups in Florida plan to protest outside his Tampa office tomorrow at noon.

"This bill will forever be known as the Rubio Amnesty bill. As a result, Patriot groups are withdrawing their support for Senator Rubio and demand that he walk away from this bill," read a statement from three local activists.  "As a result, Patriot groups are withdrawing their support for Senator Rubio and demand that he walk away from this bill."

The letter said Rubio pledged not to support legislation that is rushed through Congress and does not secure the borders or lead to more illegal immigration.

The current bill, current amendment and the rush to ram the bill through the Senate by week's end violate this letter and earlier public statements by the Senator. This bill will forever be known as the Rubio Amnesty bill.  As a result, Patriot groups are withdrawing their support for Senator Rubio and demand that he walk away from this bill.

Reagan 2016

Rubio will be primaried along with all the RINOs.

Can't take anymore

Don't worry, Marco. All will be forgiven in the next election because these mooks will always vote for the Republican nominee. They have virtually no one who could give you any real competition in a primary. Crazy Allen West would love to run if he could raise enough money but he clearly can't. You only need to worry if Alex Sink is running against you and Hillary is the Democrats' presidential nominee.

It’s another crap shoot from the Senate, just like in 1986 Amnesty. Lots of promises but the whole immigration reform bill S.377, is playing into the hands of the Special Interests for gain and profit. The major trouble with this immigration bill, is that the elected official who is in charge is a nasty piece of Liberalism Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has complete operation control over the Border and internal enforcement, and has all the power to waiver and exempt laws as she pleases. The money that is directed at the border and ICE offices will be diverted in other agencies. This is an exact replica of the Immigration Reform and control Act (IRCA), where once passed enforcement laws as incarcerating employers who hire illegal aliens hardly ever happened. Under the supercilious and bad-mannered eye of Napolitano who said the border was “Secure” we will see an insurgence of millions of more illegal aliens coming here in the next ten years. Today the crumbs voted to stop any more rational amendments, and needed at least 60 votes to bring cloture? Additionally the last Amnesty was full of fraud, because the regulation to be carried out was to oversee documentation, FBI investigations were poorly administered and the majority of people with criminal records gained legal status.

Just remember who the Senators were in all upcoming elections and give them their pink slip. Even the old war Horses need must be given their marching orders, for this crappy legislation. Learn more of the downright lies at numbersusa and American Patrol. Hopefully the House of Representatives see through this rot that has infested the Senate, and introduces a decent bill that brings priority to 10 million jobless Americans. According to Sen. Chuck Schumer (NY), if House Republicans try to block a bill granting citizenship to illegal aliens, illegal’s will swarm Washington. “This has the potential of becoming the next major civil rights movement. If Boehner tries to bottle the bill up or put something in without a path to citizenship...I could see a million people on the Mall in Washington.” Sen. Chuck Schumer, CNN State of the Union. Since when do people who broke the law coming to our country have civil rights or any rights under the Constitution? These are the same people who hung the American flag UPSIDE DOWN in protest, who sit in our jails and suck up our resources.

On Fox News, Last night Laura Ingraham, standing in for Bill O'Reilly, said it like it is. The Republican senators who voted for the outrageous Corker amendment to the Gang of Eight immigration bill may have written their own obituaries, she said. She called it "totally shady and shameful," comparing the actions by the "moderate Republicans" as the equivalence of a "one night stand." "Once the Democrat leadership has had their way with you, they're not going to love you in the morning.” During the Senate floor debate Senator Coburn pointed out that Harry Reid did not have bill marked up by the Homeland Security Committee --- the people who know something about border security issues. This was done to avoid accountability and to fool the American people. Most of the Republicans on that committee voted against the Corker amendment. I have been calling for a systematic approach to border security management for years, and I watched as the people who run the DHS cleverly avoided any real accountability. Now I see that the Senate has avoided any real accountability as well --- and it did so in plain sight for everyone to see --- if they want to see it. If the American people continue to support politicians who work openly to betray their fundamental interests, then the problem isn't just with the DHS or the Senate --- it is with us.

THOSE REPUBLICANS, WHO VOTED FOR THIS AMENDMENT, WILL BE THROWN OUT OF THEIR HOUSE SEAT.

WHAT THE SENATE BILL S.477 IS NOT ADMITTING IS THAT MISS FULL-OF-IT SECRETARY JANET NAPOLITANO HAS A CLAUSE IN THE BILL REGARDING BORDER, THAT SHE HAS COMPLETE AND UTTER CONTROL OVER WHERE FUNDS, EQUIPMENT GOES AT THE BORDER? THIS WAS THE SAME WAIVER THAT WAS IN THE 1986 IRCA ACT MORE OR LESS.

Breitbart News, Matthew Boyle 24 Jun 2013 has learned there is a provision included in the immigration bill that could be used to give free cars, motorcycles, scooters or other vehicles to young people around the country over a period of 15 months after the bill passes. The new provision is a result of the latest addition to the Corker-Hoeven amendment, which is essentially an entirely new version of the bill. Additionally from Mr. Boyle.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) have inserted a provision that amounts to little more than a handout to Las Vegas casinos into the repackaged immigration reform bill, Breitbart News has learned. This provision, a brazen example of crony capitalism, was inserted into the immigration law enforcement section of the bill despite the fact that it has nothing whatsoever to do with "immigration" or "law enforcement."
