Legalization Comes First – “It is not conditional”
In an interview Sunday with the Spanish Network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nations estimates 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional in any security requirements.
“Let’s be clear,” Rubio said. “Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence.”
This is what needs to happen, we can not wait for the 1,952 mi Mexico/U.S border to be “secure”. Most of the 11 million people living her under the shadows want to be able to come out and work legally, pay taxes, buy a home and just live normal lives like everyone else. Lets hope that Rubio does not back down on this now.
