Can Rubio Get Past His Immigration Reform Folly?

If Rubio is a true proponent of border security, then why did he feel the need to co-sponsor a behemoth, all-inclusive immigration reform bill in the Senate that, if signed into law, would have done very little to secure the U.S. border?

The main issue that Americans have with Rubio for trying to move this Obama-sanction immigration reform bill, is not so much that the bill acted as a springboard for amnesty of millions of illegal aliens, but because it helped legitimize two of the most liberal, un-American U.S. Senators, Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer, both of whom represent everything that Rubio stands against.

Rubio, as well as every single member of the U.S. Congress, should have pushed the federal government to enforce existing border security laws that would all but secure both the U.S. southern and northern borders.

The smart move by Rubio and others is to press upon Americans that the issue along the border is not just an immigration problem, but rather a larger national security issue that threatens the American way of life.

Radical Islam is already knocking on our door.
