    A recent analysis of the 2012 election showed that it was not the Hispanic vote that doomed Romney, it was the "stay at home" white vote that let him down. Obama got less votes all together. If Romney had gotten the same vote McCain got, he would be President today. Ironically, if you reversed the Hispanic vote and Romney got the same vote Obama got, Obama would have won the electoral vote by a couple, and Romney would have gotten the popular vote. In other words, a rehash of 2000. Glad that didn't happen. What the Republican Party needs to do for 2016 is just get out their vote the way that Obama did. That was the failure of the Republicans in 2012. Hopefully, if they really want to win, they will have learned that lesson.

    Rubio is in deep political trouble and is trying hard to salvage his career.
    It is too late for him to edit his own bill. He's been on the circuit defending the Gang of Eight and now he wants to create some distance? It doesn't work that way.

    Who in their right mind trusts the present administration and future administrations to enforce what ever this con job bill states. This is another blow smoke up your pant leg show and deserves to be voted down. How about just enforcing the law for a few years and the people of the country might be more accepting of so called immigration reform. This again is a con.

    Senator Rubio will learn from this experience that when Senator Schumer smile and Senator McCain isn't smiling, he should turn around and see that he may be in a trap that is about to come down. We have a country of law and order and people know that on the other side of any border. However, these people come from places that want to enjoy the benefits of what they have seen on TV and other forms of media, that everyone has at least 2 cars and a home with walls that are solid and a firm foundation. However, not everyone that comes to our shores have the same desire and yearning for freedoms and a chance to succeed. Some want to take advantage of the system of law and order, to get around the law. Having lived in various countries in Latin America during the good neighbor policy of the 1960s, people said they were the good and the United States of America was the neighbor.

    Our country has tried to help other nations and their people over the past 100 years with various programs around the world. We don't understand people's cultures and customs that they bring.
