Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Monday that President Barack Obama’s move last week to block deportations for some young illegal immigrants in the U.S. has likely derailed his own similar efforts, at least until after the election.
“People are going to say to me, ‘Why are we going to need to do anything on this now. It has been dealt with. We can wait until after the election,’” Sen. Rubio said in an interview. “And it is going to be hard to argue against that.”
In conceding that his own push was likely dead for now, Mr. Rubio also expressed anger at how the White House made its announcement Friday without consulting him or other members of the Republican Party. “We have never talked to anyone in the White House about their plans,” he said. “The only thing the White House has ever done about our ideas was to try to get some of the Dream Act kids not work with us.”
The reason it has been dealt with is EXACTLY the same as why Obama did not solicit your input to stroke your delicate egos- because you guys haven’t done anything about the issue for 3 and 1/2 years, and there is no chance in hell you will in the next six months. I know it is hard for you to comprehend, but Charlie Brown is finally starting to figure out that Lucy is just going to pull the ball away, so he’s taking his ball and making a go of it on his own.
