Last night, during his State of the Union response, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., again outlined the bipartisan Gang of Ocho immigration plan:
We need a responsible, permanent solution to the problem of those who are here illegally. But first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws.
This, of course, is nothing new. Just this week Univision asked Sen. John McCain, R-Ari., “So let me ask you, on the plan that you are proposing, there is obviously a path to citizenship. This path to citizenship is actually based on the recommendation of a commission on border security. How would that work?”
McCain replied: “Actually it will be finally determined by the Secretary of the Homeland Security, because it is not constitutional to have any commission make decisions that are reserved for the Congress of the United States.”
So what is the Secretary of the Homeland Security’s opinion about the current security situation on our nation’s border.
“Our borders have, in fact, never been stronger,” Secretary Janet Napolitano testified to Congress today.
So if our borders are already secured, that means all 11 million illegal immigrants can instantaneously get citizenship under the Rubio/McCain plan right?
