Once upon a time, this:

Time Magazine cover with Marco Rubio and caption:
That cover was predicated on the idea that Republicans needed Latinos to win national elections, and since his last name was "Rubio," ta-da! The Republicans were saved!

And for a while, Rubio was okay on immigration reform, even helping move a reform package out of the Senate. But then someone reminded him that he wants to run for president, and conservatives hate brown people, so now he scolds DREAMers for political points.

For an ambitious Republican looking to prove his conservative bona fides and rub out the stain of working with Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid, the interruption [by DREAM activists] was something of a gift. A plugged-in Republican operative turned to a reporter and observed dryly, "I couldn't think of a better way to make Rubio look good in South Carolina."
There's nothing that would make Rubio look better in front of rabid conservatives than bashing a bunch of brown children! True dat.
The audience of nearly 1,200 conservatives jeered the protestors as Rubio waited for them to be escorted out of the Anderson Civic Center, scolding them in the process.

"We are a sovereign country that deserves to have immigration laws," Rubio said. "You're doing harm to your own cause because you don't have a right to illegally immigrate to the United States."

Remember, none of those children immigrated to the United States on their own volition. But Republicans want to lock up kids for the sins of their parents. But only when they're brown.
The crowd cheered him on. One elderly audience member shoved a protester as he weaved his way through the tables. Another, 73-year old Army veteran Turk Culberson, angrily stalked them out of the building, clutching his cane as if it were a baseball bat.
Classy, those Republicans, yelling and stalking and threatening and pushing children, because that makes them feel ... fulfilled? And if anyone wonders whether Rubio will get any significant non-Latino Cuban vote, there's your answer. He's joined the retrogrades, turning his back on the kind of sane immigration policy that his own Cuban community enjoys.

Update: Huh, I had forgotten about how Rubio's grandfather came to the United States illegally.

So, you know, deport the whole lot of them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      immigrants (and Russian immigrants) got special treatment in the immigration system. Some Cubans (not all) may have darker skin and accents, but other than that, they are distinctly different from other immigrants, including immigrants of color.

      I've seen it with my husband's Russian relatives -- The U.S. readily accepted them, they were given various social services, including that their elderly vision-impaired father got social security disability, subsidized rent, and day-activity services with transportation. The Jewish community joined in supplying an apartment for the working-age adult couple and their child, and furniture and kitchen necessities. They took English classes and enrolled in really good job training for free.
      The result: they became workers who paid taxes (yay!) and then went on to bad-mouth welfare and services for anyone other than themselves. Apparently they and their friends were deserving but no one else is. And to cap it off -- they Loooovvveee Putin!
      I know less about the Cuban community but get the impression that many of them got similar extra help and denigrated other people who need help.
      I often think of what it would be like if poor people got all the services and help my husband's Russian relatives did. Perhaps we'd have more people who have jobs and decent lives rather than having to scramble for enough money to pay the rent and buy food.

          Recommended by:
          Australian2

          I lived and worked in Maimi-Dade from 1975 to 2006 and I personally saw the special treatment Cuban immigrants got along with the stranglehold they have on local and state government. I worked with and knew many Cuban-American families and they had strong right wing opinions and philosophies. I lost many Cuban acquaintences because I was a liberal Democrat, in their eyes a "communista".

          The Cuban considers himself above other Latinos. Even the dark skinned Cubans who came during Mariel and after they consider "escoria". They think Mexicans are scum, along with those trashy Puerto Ricans who tried to "steal the Cuban flag." We won't even talk about those from Central America and how they're thought of by the true Spanish speaking Cuban.

          Almost all Cuban "exiles" (they still call themselves that) have been given very special treatment under the auspices of the Cuban Adjustment Act. The "wet foot dry foot" policy assures they get to stay if they hit the beach while others, most notably Haitians are immediately deported. The Cuban's almost all support and vote Republican and they are all strong "anti-communista" and anti-socialist even though they have benefited greatly from those same socialist programs they would like to abolish. Some of the younger generation may have broken with the Cuban exile community's anti-Democratic, Kennedy haters, but they are few and far between as hate as a tradition dies hard.

          Even those who have become Democrats can be treacherous if the Democrat is not right of center. Just ask Al Gore about the duplicitous Alex Pennelas and his two faced tactics.

          Rubio's parents have a jaded US history with plans to return to Cuba and reclaim their property when Castro falls. They came here early, but never applied for citizenship until 1975 when they faced the possibility of losing federal benefits. I've known older Cuban exiles that collect SSI, still refuse to learn English and condemn native Miamian's for not learning to speak Spanish if they want to live in Miami. The great Cuban pandering, Puerto Rican mayor Mauricio "What's a few more Cubans?" Ferre chastised a citizen during a Miami City Council meeting who complained about the meeting being held in Spanish that she should learn to speak Spanish if she wanted to live in Miami.

          So, don't try to spread that BS to me, I know better. I find it hard to believe you're PR, since I know what Cuban's think of Puerto Ricans. I still have natural born American friends in Miami who tell me it's not changing, if anything it's getting worse. It is almost like a little banana republic. Yes, Reagan gave amnesty, but now those loyal Republicans who canonize St. Reagan forget that. Along with his raising taxes.

          I'm not confused, but I'm not taken in by your lies either. I left Miami in 2006 and seeing Miami-Dade county and the state of Florida in my rear view mirror was one of the happiest days of my life. I left Habana Norte and returned to middle America and I'm happy I did.

    Yet, here we have Marco Rubio out running around staking out a position on immigration nearly identical to the ideas President Obama has been running on for years. Marco Rubio seriously believes that the path to the nomination runs through success on President Obama's immigration bill?
    I'm not buying it.

    If Rubio is going to be a contender for the GOP nomination, he's going to have to abandon his own bill. I am predicting he will do so, beating a full on retreat as opposition from the right continues to mount. He will blame President Obama for his retreat, accusing the President of 'amnesty' while running away from his own bill. But make no mistake, the bill Rubio does support is already being called amnesty by the crazy right and his predictable retreat from his own bill will reveal the political cowardice that has guided his entire political career. No matter if immigration reform succeeds or fails, Rubio will have to mend fences with the GOP primary electorate. /blockquote>

          Cubans are still granted special treatment under the Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966.

          A lot of this nonsense would stop if the US lifted the embargo that punishes Cuba for Fidel. Personally, I think if we treated Cuba like we treat China, Fidel would have been gone long ago.

          The only reason the Cuban Embargo is still enforced is because of the vindictive and insane Cuban "exile" community. The "exilios" hatred of Fidel and the Kennedy's has never lessened over the years. Many in that community dream of returning to Cuba and reclaiming their property and wealth. Even Rubio's parents maintain that dream.

        I've worked with a lot of refugees over the years, from many different countries, who tell the same story of facing extremely dangerous conditions as they try to escape. And they face persecution--jail, torture, murder--if they are returned to the home country.

        If you think that is a good reason to accept someone in the U.S., the the rules that apply to Cubans should apply to all refugees.

        But the way it seems to work is that all Cubans get that kinder, faster, more favorable treatment, few questions asked, no matter what dangers they faced, while the path to safety for non-Cubans is rocky and uncertain, even for those who were in equal--or greater--peril in getting to the U.S., and would face equal--or greater--peril if deported to their home countries.

    There's one group of immigrants who used to get in automatically-- not the adopted children of citizens or the spouses even... but Cubans.

They were privileged, and yet they have no empathy at all for other immigrants? Of course not. They aren't "us" to those guys, so they don't count.

    It's the absolute definition of privilege, the sense that you deserve what benefits are granted you, but no one else does.

        It's like criticizing Clarence Thomas for benefitting from Affirmative Action but strongly denying that bit of help to other African Americans. Criticism of Thomas is not a criticism of Affirmative Action but a criticism of his pull-up-the-ladder-behind-me views.
        Programs that help immigrants get settled and educated are good for the country and should be supported, particularly by people who have benefitted from the programs themselves.

            with Rubio is not only that he's conservative, uncaring, and opportunistic, but also that he's willing and perhaps even eager to deny current immigrants the benefits of programs and policies he's experienced. I would like to see us treat current immigrants with some of the same open-handedness we've treated both Cuban and Russian immigrants.
            I was very happy to read this:

            Cubans in the U.S. have long identified with or leaned toward the Republican Party, even as Hispanics overall have tilted Democrat. But the party affiliation of Cubans has undergone a shift over the past decade, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of survey data.

    Rubio, like Ted Cruz, is a Cuban American and while he may be darker complected than your average white he, like Cruz, is white. Cubans don't view immigration through the same lens as Mexicans or Central Americans.
    I bet if you look at who put these two in office you'll see plenty of Hispanics voted for them because of their ethnicity. They believed they would champion the rights of the illegal or the dream kids because they are fellow Hispanics. And they couldn't be more wrong.
    We constantly hear about AIPAC, but rarely do we hear about a tiny Cuban American community who wields so much power when it comes to our foreign policy with Cuba.
    It's all right to trade with Vietnam, China, until recently Russia, Saudi (where most of the 9/11 hijackers came from), Pakistan (state sponsored Islamic terrorism, safe haven for Taliban), but trade and open borders with Cuba. Oh hell no!
    Cruz and Rubio don't want to make the other Hispanics citizens because they would vote Democratic or because they are too Indian and not enough Spanish.
    I'll never vote for a Cuban-American.

  •  Cubanos vs Latinos (0+ / 0-)

    Rightwingers thought they could convince non-rightwingers to vote for a complete looneytoon because she had a vagina; and they think they can convince Hispanic/Latino-Americans to vote for a rightwing--Cuban-American because his ancestors spoke Spanish.
