Tea Party Protesting Senator Marco Rubio

Senator Marco Rubio continues to face stiff opposition from the conservative base he relied so heavily on to help him win his 2010 Senatorial election. The Tea Party movement swept Rubio into office over former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, and Democratic Congressman Kendrick Meek.


The Martin 9/12 Tea Party Committee is sponsoring a statewide protested against the Senator, at his district offices for his recent change in position on the immigration reform.  The immigration group, FLIMEN is also urging  Floridians to protest Rubio's district offices. Back in 2009, Rubio met with the FLIMEN and all but promised them that he would never support any pathway to citizenship, or amnesty for illegal immigrants.


But that was 2009, and Rubio was running for office. Rubio who has dismissed these immigration groups as "crazy,"  has softened on the issue considerably, but sticks to his main point that he does not support "blanket amnesty" for illegal immigrants.

The protests are scheduled for Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at all of Senator Rubio's Florida district offices.
