We continue to ignore the drug problem in thsi country that supports the corruption and violence in Mexico American businesses take advantage of that cheap labor pool and encourage officials to maintain the status quo.

It appears that most of the critics didn't listen to what he said. Citizenship will not come anytime soon. There will be E verify. There will be closing of the border to the greatest extent possible, and the illegals will have to apply for this ability to remain here. Back taxes will have to be paid, there will be background checks done. If they have committed crimes, they will not qualify. As for gun control, my concern is that there is no list kept of names of those who have been given permits to own a gun. In the past, ALL countries that have kept these lists, have confiscated guns. Just as what is happening in New York now. The government should not be able to confiscate guns that have been legally obtained by law abiding citizens in the US. It just isn't any of their business.

How about giving me the same ‘non break’? Posted by: Steve | April 14, 2013, 2:18 pm 2:18 pm And they will still show up at Emergency rooms, using them as a doctor's office, and hospitals can't turn them away. So they will get totally free healthcare for themselves. We the People will pay for it.

We have a country to the south that has a standard of living that almost rivals North Korea's. If you notice , we don't have an immigration problem with Canada whose citizens are perfectly happy to live there. We need to cancel all NAFTA contracts with Mexico until they end the corruption and ensure their workers are paid a fair wage, get a labor movement going.. Quit monitoring the border and monitor the Mexican government. Slowing down the drug problem in our country would also help eliminate the corruption in Mexico. The richest man in the world lives in Mexico. He's rich because the companies he owns has almost no labor costs. Border security and all this immigration BS is not going to stop illegal immigration into this country. In fact I admire those people who won't settle for the status quo in Mexico and have the courage come here for a better life for their families. We need more people with the guts to try to improve their own standard of living instead of waiting for it to trickledown from the rich.. That what made this country great. If I have to pay a little more taxes to help some of them so be it. RICK

It doesn't matter which side of the immigration issue your on, his plan does nothing to solve the problem. He's trying to lure Hispanics for his 2016 Presidential run and keep conservatives happy at the same time. It's a waste of time, no republican potential candidate so far is going to be elected in 2016 until they stop their war on the middle class. Marco Rubio is running the typical republican con.

It allows a foreign power to send so many of their people to America, that they can literally take over America, through their numbers, and basically transform it into something totally different from what it was intended to be. That is EXACTLY what we enable, if we permit these people to become citizens. That is going to happen anyway........if we continue to give citizenship to their children born in the U.S. We are under attack......and we are too stupid to see the truth.

And NEVER do I ever see someone with a 'right winger mentality'...EVER get that. The other thing about this debate - that is NOT being debated is the number of extremely intelligent foreign students we are losing to their 'home country (emerging nations) - who would create companies and jobs in our country - but they aren't allowed to stay because of no path to citizenship. Read Fareed Zakaria's new book...and you will see what I mean. Instead who are we letting 'control this debate'(?)....ignorant populists of the right wing.

If the bill gets killed, border security will go down with it and within a couple of years we will have to worry about more than 11 million immigrants.

These illegals have committed FELONY ID theft, tax fraud, lying on I-9 forms- ALL FELONIES- that would keep a would be legal immigrant OUT. This rewards crime.

Our government reward them? How many Contractors, restaurant workers, hotel workers US citizens lost their jobs because illegals are willing to work for less? Senator Rubio Should pull his head out of his @$$ and realize that millions of Americans lost their standard of living because our government failed to do its job. Is he willing to pay for all those Americans what they lost because of illegals? And one more thing! He is lying because the US border will always be open. The same thing happened in 1986. Ronald Reagan promised enforcement. It didn't happened for 27 years. In fact illegal Immigration is 10 times worse then before. He must be very stupid if he is to believe that Americans believe a word hi is saying as far as enforcement. So what is the fine $ 100 $ 1000,
