Another End Run – How Can Any Conservative American Ever Trust Marco Rubio

A Used Car Salesman's Smile

A Used Car Salesman’s Smile

Marco Rubio is at it again.  He tried in 2013 and failed.  It’s called the I-Squared Act of 2015, or S.B. 153.  According to it was originally introduced in January, 2015 by Senator Orrin Hatch (R) of Utah.  One of the bill’s co-sponsors is – Marco Rubio (R) of Florida.   Another is Arizona’s own John McCain (R), which should come as no surprise to anyone.  Late in the George W. Bush Administration McCain (and the Commander In Chief) tried to ram another amnesty for millions of illegal aliens down the throats of the American public.  Comes now the slick-looking, slick-talking senator from Florida, with another incremental step toward turning this country into (as Ann Coulter calls it in her new book) a Third World Hellhole.

Over at, Leo Hohman gives us his take on what this bill will do for the big multinational corporations with operations here in the United States – and what it will do to American workers:

Marco Rubio’s signature immigration bill is drawing fire from conservatives who say it would allow more companies to go the route of Disney and replace their American employees with cheap foreign “guest workers” from India, China, Pakistan and elsewhere.

Rubio, R-Fla., is one of eight Republicans and four Democrats to co-sponsor the “I-Squared” bill in the U.S. Senate. It would triple the number of temporary guest workers allowed into the U.S. on the H1-B visa each year, from 65,000 to 195,000, while also allowing the visa holders to bring in family members…

Hohman tells us that companies such as Disney use H1-B visas to bring in cheaper high-skilled labor from abroad, then force their American employees to train the foreign imports – who then take the Americans’ jobs.  The manner of coercion is the threat of loss of the Americans’ severance packages if they refuse to train their replacements – who will of course work for much less money than the Americans were receiving.

Hohman reports that conservatives (are there really any left in this country?) are criticizing both Rubio and the I-Squared Act because of the increased threat it presents to techno-American workers.  Rubio’s answer to the very few questions from the media?  We find that on down the page in Hohman’s piece:

WND called and emailed Rubio’s campaign and Senate staffs requesting comment on his support for I-Squared and expansion of the guest-worker program. They did not respond.
Rubio did break his long silence on the issue last Friday, providing the following statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation with regard to Disney:

“Of course we’re concerned about these reports. If the program was misused, then people should be held accountable.”

Indeed.  They’re concerned.  People should be held accountable.  Pardon me if I laugh.  Tell me, just how could using the current H1-B visa program to get rid of hundreds of American workers and replace them with cheaper foreign labor ever be proven a misuse of the law?  It’s all about the profit margin.

Want my opinion?  I think Mr. Rubio and all of his globalist pals, from both sides of the political aisle, would look really good as salesmen at a really cheap corner used car lot – decorated with lots of colored floating balloons on strings.


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
