A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) partnered with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to pass a comprehensive immigration bill that would grant citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.
That was then – a little over a year ago. Today, in an interview with Breitbart News, the Florida Republican berated President Obama for considering unilateral amnesty, shifted cleanly against “comprehensive” reform, and said the U.S. shouldn't even debate citizenship for illegal aliens until the border is secure.
“I continue to believe our system needs to be reformed and I’ve learned in the last year that because of such an incredible distrust of the federal government no matter who’s in charge, the only way you’re going to be able to deal with this issue is by first securing the border and ensuring that illegal immigration is under control,” Rubio told me.
A likely candidate presidential candidate in 2016, Rubio sent Obama a letter Tuesday outlining his break from a comprehensive approach to the problem – pairing border security with a years-long path for illegal aliens to eventually obtain citizenship.
He also told the president to back off from a rumored plan to expand unilateral amnesty, awarded in 2012 to individuals who came to the U.S. illegally as minors, to as many as five million people.
No politician can be trusted, especially if they're liars....ahhh...lawyers..
Mr. Rogrigues, I agree with you 100%.
I am Cuban and I have my misgivings the fact that he is, doesn't make me a devout believer. Let us wait and see. I lke Ted Cruz, he has prove his courage and his convictions.
Highly respect Ted Cruz as he is one of my Senators. However, he was born in Calgary, Alberta,Canada and there would have to be an Amendment to the Constitution for him to be eligible for the Oval Office (Article 2, Section 1, Clause 4).
Rubio has to pick a side and stay there. I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him at the moment. He isn't the only one of the elephants either that cannot be trusted. I am TEA PARTY PROUD and doing my part to save America. Rubio has a lot to prove to America and me and this is not even starting the process. He is way too wishy-washy for this old lady!!!! I've seen it all and most of it twice and three times and men like him don't impress me at all.
Rubio cant even shine teds shoes let alone to be trusted to act like him vote all of the left out put in ted and sarah palin
Is this the reverse flip flop ? what will he do next ?.. Our Border must be secured and should have been years ago ..That has never changed .. it should be a priority not an after thought !
Rubio cant be trusted.
Rubio's statement about securing the border seems crazy considering Team Obama, at the behest of the Vatican, already allowed 5-6 million people in and are providing free housing, food, medical care with our own tax-payer money. Better conditions than what many legal citizens have now that have paid taxes all their life here. Whatever the reason for this shift from Rubio don't be surprised if he shifts back soon. This is a planned distraction for something else possibly. What a snake.
I LIKE RUBIO BUT HE SEEMS TO BE A BIT WISHY > WASH . THEN AGAIN HE MAY HAVE NEEDED TO THINK AND LOOK AT ALL THINGS INVOLVED . MAYBE HE NEED TIME TO FIGURE OUT WASHINGTON OR THE DETAILS OF IT . I'M WILLING TO WAIT AND SEE ON HIM . THE BORDER NEEDED TO BE CLOSED A LONG TIME AGO !! WE NEED TO SEND THE ILLEGALS BACK !! QUICK !!
That is where Rubio lost credibility in my book, teaming up with that socialist swine !
