Skip to comments.Marco Rubio Called Out For “Lying Like Democrats” About Immigration
Posted on 04/20/2013 1:27:00 PM PDT by EXCH54FE
On Wednesday, author Ann Coulter blasted Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his support of the immigration reform bill which is being put forth by the Gang of Eight that he is a part of. Her headline was classic Coulter, IF RUBIOS AMNESTY IS SO GREAT, WHY IS HE LYING?. In it, she proceeds to expose the obvious problems with the Florida Senators proposed immigration legislation.
When Republicans start lying like Democrats, you can guess they are pushing an idea thats bad for America, the conservative author wrote. During his William Ginsburg-like tour of the Sunday talk shows last weekend, Sen. Marco Rubio was the Mount Vesuvius of lies about his immigration bill.
Coulter pointed to Rubios appearance on Fox News Sunday, in which he explained the powerful border-enforcing mechanism, which he denied was merely a meaningless goal. He said, Basically, Homeland Security will have five years to meet that goal. If after five years, Homeland Security has not met that number, it will trigger the Border Commission, who will then take over this issue for them.
Coulter then sarcastically commented, So the water torture awaiting the Department of Homeland Security if it fails to secure the border is
ANOTHER GOVERNMENT COMMISSION WILL BE CREATED! Take that, Homeland Security! Ha we have you now! The only thing more frightening than another government commission is a strongly worded letter.

Ann is a fake for sure, but she’s right on this one.
They just aren't plausible given the governments past performance on similar bills.
Rubio knows damn good & well he's lying to us. What bothers me the most is he thinks we're that stupid.
They don’t enforce current law why would this change that?
IMO this needs to be taken in the context of eliminating the border entirely.
Ann is correct.
This week we once again had to confront the dangers of Islamic terrorism. But I frankly have to wonder why even bother being concerned with crazed jihadist killers who desire America’s destruction, when we have open-borders traitors right in our government whose very goals lead even more effeciently to the country’s demise?
Rubio is either criminally naive or criminally disingenuous with his insane amnesty plan.
Rubio’s weakness is his sympathy for his hispanic brethren (legal or not) and they’re exploiting it to the max!! They’ve turned him into a McTraitor!! A Senator’s priorities must be to defend and secure the nation above all else!! America’s national security first!!
Demoncrats and RINOs who willingly refuse to secure and defend the nation during time of war are traitors!!
Mexicans don't consider Cubans, like Rubio, their "brethren."
In that case it’s unrequited loyalty which makes it even more foolish.
Rubio knows EXACTLY what he is doing.
As House Speaker in Florida, he repeatedly blocked Arizona-style immigration laws from being brought to the floor.
After election to the US Senate, he chose a chief of staff who was a former lobbyist for the Association of Immigration Lawyers.
MORATORIUM ON IMMIGRATION. We do not yet know how to protect our nation and its people.
Commie, biz & ethnic lobby GTH!
I was disappointed in Rush. After Rubio hung up, THEN Rush went over the amnesty arguments that he should have asked/told Rubio. Very weak, Rush.
After President Reagan’s 1986 good faith amnesty, Republicans won CA in Presidential Election 1988, but never again.
If “Immigration Reform” is passed, Texas and several other ‘Republican/Red’ states, will go to the ‘demonic-rat/blue’ states within 2 years. GUARANTEED.
SEAL THE DAMN BORDER!
Because what we are talking about here are 20 to 50 million new wards of the state.
They will transform our nation forever, they will guarantee an ever increasing bureaucracy to service them. They will see to it every election.
It is as certain as the sun setting in the west. Say goodbye to any hope of tax cuts, say hello to less money in your paychecks and get ready for a dramatic acceleration in intrusive government.
Thank "Tea Party conservative" Marco Rubio. He's the point man here.
Correct. Rubio has a trail, and it is bad!
Yep, didn’t take Rubio long to go from Tea Party fav (they elected him) to a McLame/Grahmnesty RINO.
Rubio has become the latest RINO, IMO. I will not support him for anything.
Me thinks they should have made a gang name for the Gang of eight! You allow yourselves to be called a gang and you the promise of the American people!
At least we know what the Crips and Bloods stand for!
This Gang continues the Slavery of Americans for the good of the Illegal, nothing changes but status! Citizen bottom feeders is the only difference!
You carry as much water as a sieve...
Well, even if you don’t like Coulter, she’s right about Rubio here.
Even a stopped watch shows the correct time twice a day.
Re: Rush’s interview of Rubio, he drove me crazy as every time Rush would ask him a question Rubio would start his answer with “Two things”. It was always two things. What was with that?!
