Rubio: Unaccompanied Illegal Immigrant Minors Should Be Sent Home

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) believes that the sudden influx of unaccompanied minors detained by the government should be cared for and sent home.

In an interview with Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey, Rubio argued that it was important to enforce the current immigration laws of the country and secure the border.

In spite of his own immigration bill that critics denounced as amnesty, Rubio noted that none of the proposed immigration reform proposals in Congress would have actually given the minors the ability to stay legally in America.

Sending the children back, he said, would diminish the incentive for parents to encourage their children to make the dangerous journey.

Rubio also criticized President Obama’s “Emergency” $3.7 billion funding request for the border, suggesting that it did not do enough to secure the border.
