Days after a federal judge issued an injunction against President Barack Obamas executive amnesty, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) urged Senate Republicans to abandon their defunding efforts and pass a clean Homeland Security funding bill.
We have to fund Homeland Security, Rubio reportedly said on Wednesday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. We cant let Homeland Security shut down.
He reportedly noted that Obama has threatened to veto any bill that would reverse his executive actions on immigration, including the measure to pay for Homeland Security and the Senate doesnt have enough votes to pass the bill that ties the two issues together, according to the outlet.
Rubio, who is weighing a potential presidential run, made his remarks in Las Vegas during his book tour.
The House passed a Homeland Security spending bill that also prohibits the federal government from funding Obamas executive amnesty. Senate Democrats have filibustered the bill three times and will reportedly not back down next week before the Feb. 27 deadline to fund the agency.

The democrats are the ones doing it. Screw em.
I’m really starting to despise this backbiting weasel.
Then let Zerohissef veto the bill. YUou get your butt in gear and shut him down.
Good God, man make them the bad guys...
Its not rocket science.
Take a damn stand.
Geez, such a disappointment. You’d think Rubio would have learned the last time not to be the Democrat’s tool.
Apparently Rubio has no desire to be POTUS
And there is not really any “shutdown”. Rubio is repeating the media and Rat’s lies.
Hey Marco, I’m not sure if you’re Obama’s puppy but a Texas Federal Judge just shot that down. Do you get it, it is at the moment still against the law, therefore illegal to fund.
Then find another reason. Whatever you do, just get rid of it.
Rubio: The Ryan Leaf of the conservative movement.
Damn you, Rubio! Every time I think you’re for real, (as a conservative) you turn and chit on us! Giving up on you completely!
I’ve despised this backstabbing statist steaming pile of Obama since he came on the scene!
Anyone who thinks Rubio is the Dems’ tool would be wrong - he is a way bigger tool than that - Rubio is another Obama sounding good, saying what the people want to hear, and then the Big Bait & Switch rolls out time after time:
Rubio was always for amnesty, always will be.
once again he goes yellow belly
The House sent you a funding bill for DHS, Marco. Pass it!
