Rubio Touts New Immigration Border Strengthening Amendment
A new Senate amendment that would bolster the border security aspect of the 'Gang of Eight' immigration bill by building an additional 700 miles of fence, and employing thousands of more Border Patrol agents, is expected to be introduced today, and could garner the needed Republicans votes to pass the Senate.
Senator Rand Paul has all but said that he would not support it, while Rubio is fully backing this amendment. Yes, if this amendment is inserted into the 'Gang of Eight' immigration reform bill, it would make the border stronger, but it still doesn't take away from the fact that this new bill, were it to pass in the Senate, will die in the House of Representatives.
The 'Gang of Eight' Commander-in-Jefe, Senator Rubio appeared on Fox News to address the border security amendment.
They violated the immigration laws of the United States, you don't have a right to illegal immigrate to the United States... I don't think people who have violated the immigration laws have a right to demand anything.-Senator Marco Rubio
