Latino / Hispanic Republican / SOMOS REPUBLICANS largest GOP group in United States
Here’s the reality. Mexican-Americans account for almost 70% of the Latin population pie. However, Cuban-Americans account for 3% of the pie.
Why is Senator Marco Rubio supporting a unique amnesty and government entitlements via the Cuban Adjustment Act afforded to the Cubans (with heavy concentration in Florida), but he damns the rest of the Latino ethnic groups who want to achieve the same American Dream that was afforded to his family?
Will Senator Marco Rubio who claims to be for less government insist on protecting the unique Cuban amnesty and at least one year of government entitlements using our tax payer dollar?
That said, Marco Rubio still has not officially taken back his support for the Arizona harsh anti-immigrant law where he blamed “just the Mexicans” on drug violence (even though his own brother in law — a Cuban immigrant was busted with one of the biggest drug trafficking violations in Florida history). It gets worse, Marco Rubio still DOES NOT SUPPORT THE DREAM Act. We want to see reasonable action, and so far both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz (both of which are Cuban-Americans) support enforcement only policies and “large government policies” via the national e-verify bill.
I support the Cuban Adjustment Act, but I do not support Tea party politicians who forget that their relatives and family had compassion afforded to them. We are not asking for amnesty with entitlements that are afforded to Cubans via the wet foot dry foot policy, all we are asking for is a secure border plan and legal immigration reform — without the government entitlements. We believe that’s reasonable.
With our plan, there will be less shark deaths and less desert deaths if we promote a healthy and reasonable legal immigration plan from a clearly broken immigration system. Will Senator Marco Rubio get on right side of the immigration issue and co-sponsor Senator Menendez’s legal immigration bill? Several GOP lawmakers have implemented their version of anti-immigrant laws because they say the federal government has not fixed it. Since Rubio is part of the federal government system now, he can display leadership at a ‘federal level’ by working towards a broken immigration system alongside Senator Menendez’s bill with a legal immigration reform plan.
