Should Marco Rubio’s drug trafficking brother in law be deported? After all, a federal informant was chopped up, right?by President of Somos A. Bustos on Jul. 13, 2011, under Secure Borders and Reasonable Immigration Solution
Marco Rubio’s brother in law was indicted for drug trafficking and the death and dismemberment of a federal informant. However, we are trying to ascertain if his brother in law was a legal permanent resident at the time of this conviction.
Since Marco Rubio has taken an enforcement only stance on immigration (he supports Arizona’s unConstitutional SB 1070 law, is against the DREAM Act and now want to embrace Lamar Smith’s enforcement only policies via the national e-verify program), would he have been in favor of deporting his sister’s husband?
His brother-in-law was released on good behavior. GOOD BEHAVIOR? Being part of chopping up a federal informant’s body is okay as long as you behave in prison will get you out early?! Keep in mind Marco Rubio’s brother in law only served 12 years, not the 25 he was sentenced. Where are the Republicans at who are “tough on criminals”? Where are the Republican death penalty supporters at on this issue? Anyone? Bueller….
We believe in legal immigration. We know the system is broken, however, taking an enforcement only position on immigration is not reasonable because the American economy depends on labor provided by immigrants. Immigrants contribute to our economy in the billions of dollars.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s Brother-In-Law Is A Convicted Drug Trafficker
“An investigation by Univision found that Rubio’s brother-in-law, Orlando Cicilia, was arrested during a major antinarcotics operation in 1987. Rubio was a 16-year old high school student at the time. According to public records, Cicilia was arrested after federal law enforcement seized the Miami home where he lived with Barbara Rubio, Senator Rubio’s sister. Barbara Rubio was not arrested or indicted. Cicilia was sentenced to 25 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana.The arrest was part of “Operation Cobra,” a federal crackdown on a Florida drug smuggling ring that killed a federal informer and chopped up his body, according to a NYT story published at the time. The story reports that the ring, led by Cuban American Mario Tabraue, paid $150,000 in bribes to the Key West police chief and Miami-Dade county officials, and used Miami police officers to collect, count, and disburse drug profits.
