I agree with Senator Ted Cruz that Donald Trump has a point on the illegal immigration issue. There are a lot of criminals and undesirables coming across our open borders. I’m a Cruz gal, but right now Trump is looking a lot better than Rubio to me. I have never trusted Rubio since he came up with the Gang of Eight bill, which betrayed every Tea Party principle out there. He then flip-flopped on it when it became politically expeditious and the RINO writing was on the wall. Now, he is sort of against illegal immigration, except his talking points still sound suspiciously like the Gang of Eight bill. Not buying his faux-conservatism and Trump is right to go after Rubio full-steam. He stands with those comparing Trump to Hitler and Dylan Storm Roof – really? Trump compared to mass murderers? He’s many things, but Trump is also a force to be reckoned with. The only dead bodies he leaves behind are figuratively in business. He’s got people shaking in their jack boots.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is holding nothing back after his 2016 rival Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) attacked his stance on immigration reform.
Rubio joined Democrats and liberals—as well as most of the mainstream media—in attacking Trump for calling out international criminals who exploit America’s weak and insecure border to get into the United States illegally.
“Trump’s comments are not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive,” Rubio said. “Our next president needs to be someone who brings Americans together – not someone who continues to divide. Our broken immigration system is something that needs to be solved, and comments like this move us further from – not closer to – a solution. We need leaders who offer serious solutions to secure our border and fix our broken immigration system.”
Rubio’s statement follows what Trump said about illegal aliens two weeks ago in his presidential campaign announcement speech. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said then. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems… they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Rubio joins people like Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign co-chair and liberal actress Eva Longoria—who compared Trump to Adolf Hitler—and Univision programming president Alberto Ciurana–who compared Trump to Charleston, South Carolina, mass murderer Dylann Storm Roof. There are plenty of others throughout the mainstream media and institutional left who have slammed Trump as well, and some Republicans like former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former New York Gov. George Pataki.
Sending out a link to a Breitbart California article detailing how one such illegal alien like the criminals Trump called out in his announcement speech allegedly murdered a woman in San Francisco on Wednesday, Trump launched his initial response at Rubio via Twitter: “Our Southern border is unsecure. I am the only one that can fix it, nobody else has the guts to even talk about it.”
“Our Southern border is totally out of control. This is an absolutely disgraceful. situation,” Trump added. “We need border security!”
“Where are the other candidates now that this tragic murder has taken place b/c of our unsafe border,” he added in another tweet. “We need a wall!”
In a fourth tweet, Trump sent a message directly to Rubio: “[email protected] what do you say to the family of Kathryn Steinle in CA who was viciously killed b/c we can’t secure our border? Stand up for US.”
In addition, a Trump adviser sent a lengthy statement to Breitbart News on Friday evening signaling that the real estate mogul isn’t backing down.
“Mr. Trump will never apologize for wanting the American people to have a secure border,” the Trump adviser said. “He is the sole candidate who will secure our broken southern border by building a massive wall. The American people deserve a wall to protect their safety, jobs and economy.”
In addition, Trump’s adviser told Breitbart News that his boss can’t wait to expose Rubio’s weakness on immigration:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has zero credibility on securing our border. Nothing has been more “divisive” than the outright lies Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) used to try and sell his amnesty for illegal immigrants to the American people. Hard working Americans cannot depend on Senator Rubio to protect their jobs. Senator Rubio’s “Gang of Eight” bill, which was such an epic failure it never even came up for a vote in the House, would have given President Obama the immediate power to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
Trump’s team seems ready to hone in on Rubio’s biggest weakness: That he worked with senior Democrats like Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and the now-indicted Bob Menendez (D-NJ) to put forward an amnesty bill last Congress. Rubio eventually backed away from his own bill after he tanked in the polls.
“Rubio flip flopped on the bill for political expediency with the explanation that he could not expect President Obama to enforce it. Why would Rubio have given Obama this authority in the first place?” Trump’s adviser said.
Donald Trump is brash and arrogant. And he is not the only one standing up against illegal immigration out there, nor is he the only one who can fix the problem. Having said that, Trump is right on immigration and the corrupt Washington cartel on both sides of the political aisle hates him for it. Rubio is part of the Washington cartel and is not to be trusted. He is easily swayed and controlled by the likes of Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and John McCain – not to mention the power brokers on the left. Rubio has proven that he will follow the current Progressive strong horse on the right. I hope Trump keeps after Rubio. Grab your popcorn, it’s going to be one hell of a show through 2016.
