    Rubio: Law-abiding undocumented immigrants could stay

    In an interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the Florida contender for the Republican presidential nomination said felons shouldn’t be allowed to stay, but those who commit lesser crimes could still qualify.

    In this interview, he didn’t specify whether those allowed to stay would ever be able to become citizens.

    “If you’re a criminal alien, no, you can’t stay. If you’re someone that hasn’t been here for a very long time, you can’t stay,” he said. “I don’t think you’re gonna round up and deport 12 million people."

    Rubio’s somewhat fluid position on immigration has been a target for his opponents because he was part of the Gang of Eight lawmakers who worked on the 2013 immigration reform bill, which included a path to citizenship.

    Is there such thing as a "law abiding" illegal immigrant?
    Law abiding and illegal are opposite.

    Apparently sneaking across the border is no longer a crime in some people's minds.

    Rubio is by far the republucans most electable candidate but he's not racist enough for hardcore primary voters

    How is it racist to want to have legal immigration?

    rac·ism
    ˈrāˌsizəm/
    noun
    1. the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

    Obongo likes to write his own laws and ignore the one's he doesn't like. Same with Rubio, I guess.
