Marco Rubio hugs it out with Obama on Immigration
With the ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration reform bill passing in the U.S. Senate, Senator Rubio has lost favor with many Americans that believed he was against amnesty for illegal immigrants. While I agree in principle with the Senator that immigration reform needs to be addressed, I believe that this flawed bill does not address the border/national security issue first, instead grants amnesty for those who have entered this country illegally.
Rubio himself said that he would never support “any effort” to legalize “folks who have entered or stayed in this country illegally.”
“No, no – never have been. In fact, I’m strongly against amnesty… So I am not and I will never support – never have and never will support — any effort to grant blanket, legalization amnesty to folks who have entered or stayed in this country illegally.”- Marco Rubio, 3/21/2009
