Rubio’s Two Faces on Immigration

I’ve been very critical of Senator Marco Rubio lately, and for good reason — his “evolving” position on immigration “reform” now includes changing his point of view based upon his audience.

On the Rush Limbaugh program in January Rubio believed:

First of all, legalization does not begin automatically. We don’t want to wait on legalizing and I’ll tell you why. My original position was that we wanted to secure the border first, then legalize. The problem is we have millions of people here now — by some estimates 10, 11 million. We want to know who they are and freeze the problem in place. I don’t want that number to grow. It behooves us to know who they as soon as possible so it doesn’t get worse.

Sounds good.

Yet, on a Spanish-language Univision program just the other day, Rubio now believes:

First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border…. It is not conditional. The legalization is not conditional.

Rubio, the naive Rube.  Bit by bit, these kinds of things are chipping away at his reputation, credibility, and viability in 2016.  Somewhere, an overweight DNC schlep in his underwear in a dark corner of his mom’s basement is brushing off the stale Cheetos from his bean bag while he adds this immigration flip-flop to his files next to the water bottle fiasco.
