May 11th would have been Dad’s 69th birthday. A few weeks ago, Dad’s third wife Darla agreed to take her camera and wander the shores of Lake Ontario where she lives. She has a keen eye for the absurd and often sends pictures of her cats on safari and houses losing their land masses. Yesterday, Darla sent pictures of her floral friends, and the timing couldn’t have been better for me, since this week only foliage has seemed sane.
Via Rikyrah at Jack & Jill Politics, we find a statement wrong on so many – oh, just read it already:
Marco Rubio says deport all the immigrants
That’s child of Cuban immigrants Marco Rubio, and he kept talking.
Rubio explained that he is against letting illegals become legal:
Rubio also rejected the notion of a “path to citizenship” or “amnesty,” despite “the human stories.”
“There are going to be stories of very young kids that were brought to this country at a very young age who don’t even speak Spanish that are going to be sent back to Nicaragua or some other place. And it’s gonna feel weird and I understand that,” he said, suggesting that those hardships would be a price worth paying.
Hah! That’s a quote from Marco Rubio, son of Cuban refugees. Cubans were, for decades, welcome to settle in America without visas or papers or anything, and they are still allowed to enter the the U.S. via Mexico without fear of being deported.
But Nicaraguans? Ugh, no. Marco Rubio says GO HOME.
What the fuck does that mean? Those kids pay a price and it’s worth it – to whom?
Violets and forget-me-nots on a Canadian lawn contribute more to the world than selfish pricks like Marco Rubio. Here’s hoping Rubio finds himself asking for directions in Arizona, because in Maricopa County, Rubio’s just another brown man on the border. Those hardships would absolutely be a price worth paying.
