Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif. on Marco Rubio: “He’s given up any right to be trusted by the American people”
Marco Rubio IS NOT a good guy. He claimed he was against amnesty when he ran for office in 2010 and now he’s leading the charge. Day in and day out, he’s lying to the American people about what’s in the bill he’s pushing. This man is betraying the Tea Party, conservatism and the Republicans who fought the establishment to put him in office.
Now, Marco Rubio IS THE ESTABLISHMENT and at least one Republican in Congress is calling him on it.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., is ripping Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and other Republicans for facilitating the Democratic approach to immigration reform and deceiving the American people about what’s in the legislation.
Rohrabacher is not impressed.
“Rubio is so mixed up and so confused. I think he has given up his rightful place to advise any of us in Washington what to do, and he’s given up any right to be trusted by the American people,” he said.
“This is just a lot of weasel words that Rubio and these people are throwing in. They’re going to legalize the status of people here illegally. Once they do that, that is an amnesty. And once they do that, there will be no border security improvements. It’ll all be a facade,” said Rohrabacher, who warned this bill would only attract tens of millions more illegal aliens.
Also this week, the Senate voted down an amendment to the immigration bill by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, that would require border security to be in place before any legal status is given to illegals. All four Republicans in the Gang of Eight voted against the amendment.
“That shows you exactly what the intent of the people pushing the legislation is, the fact that they couldn’t put legitimate triggers into the bill so we’d be able to determine whether the more had been made more secure. So the fact they had to vote that down in the Senate shows you that they’re not serious and they’re lying to us when they say otherwise,” said Rohrabacher, who vowed he will not vote for any bill that legalizes the status of anyone who came to this country illegally.
No one in Congress who votes for this bill means well. No one in Congress who champions this bill means well. We’re talking about people who are willing to sell the conservatives who voted for them down the river because deep pocketed crooks who benefit from illegal immigration are willing to pay them off. None of them can be trusted, including Marco Rubio.
