Rubio Spokesman: Your Immigration Compromise Offer Reminds Me Of Something. What's It Called? Oh Right...SLAVERY.

Well, the smiling face, let's have a civil discussion about amnesty mask dropped last night.

Conn Carroll of the Washington Examiner proposed a plan that would allow illegals here to register and receive work visas but permanently exclude them from citizenship. That would be a real penalty (not ones like in the Schumer-Rubio amnesty plan). Rubio's spokesman Alex Conant, who until that point had engaged several critics (myself included) in polite debate, replied this way.


Well, we have a cohort of people living here now who are without full citizenship rights. That's kind of what this whole thing is about, no? If they don't want to be like "slaves" they can do something actual slaves can't....leave.

As Carroll points out today, Conant's language is straight out the left's playbook.

I was worried that Team Rubio would be tougher to beat since they were doing so much smiling faced outreach to conservatives. It was easier to deal with snarling John McCain or Lindsey "tell the bigots to shut up" Graham. Conant has made things easier for the anti-amnesty side.

BTW- I know some people still want to fight over the word "amnesty". Clearly I think it the Schumer-Rubio plan is. To further my case, I'd like to call to stand one Marco Rubio (circa 2010).

During a March 28, 2010 Fox News debate against then-Gov. Charlie Crist, Rubio said: “He would have voted for the McCain plan. I think that plan is wrong, and the reason I think it’s wrong is that if you grant amnesty, as the governor proposes that we do, in any form, whether it's back of the line or so forth, you will destroy any chance we will ever have of having a legal immigration system that works here in America.”

In a CNN debate on Oct 24, 2010, moderator Candy Crowley asked, “So your plan is that you're going to close the borders, get the electronic system, fix the legal system, and then do what?" Rubio responded: “And then you'll have a legal immigration system that works. And you'll have people in this country that are without documents that will be able to return to the -- will be able to leave this country, return to their homeland, and try to re-enter through our system that now functions, a system that makes sense…Earned path to citizenship is basically code for amnesty.

Sure Rubio changed his mind (or lied depending on how charitable you are feeling) but you can totally trust him when he says it's not amnesty now and the border security provisions in his bill are strong . Sure you can.
