Marco Rubio: "But I thought only our people spoke Spanish!"

Byron York seems to have emerged as Marco Rubio’s nemesis. First he points out that the Gang bill embodies no powerful Border Commission – so that Rubio’s talk show barrage claiming it did appears to have been just lies.

Now in Marco Rubio: In immigration reform, legalization comes first — ‘It is not conditional’ The Daily Caller June 10, 2013 York reports

In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place

Let’s be clear,” Rubio said. “Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border…The legalization is not conditional.”

In other words, U-N-C-O-N-D-I-T-I-O-N-A-L  A-M-N-E-S-T-Y.

As York politely notes

In most of his public appeals for the Gang of Eight bill, Rubio has stressed its enforcement provisions, saying that border security must come before immigrants are granted legal permanent resident status

That Rubio is happy to lie about his Amnesty views is now incontrovertible. The only question is why he chose this delicate moment, with the Bill going to the full Senate tomorrow, to tell his Spanish language audience this. Did he think no immigration patriots can speak Spanish?

My view is that he is dumb as well as dishonest. Steve Sailer appears to agree - and we are not alone.
