Marco Rubio is no conservative

From Rand Paul 2016:

The strategy of Marco Rubio, Hillary Clinton, and Chuck Schumer and the Gang of 8 to support liberal immigration policies would make our country dramatically less safe. They seem to want to put American troops on the ground in the Middle East, but are unwilling to secure our borders here at home.

Rubio’s liberal immigration policies are bad for conservatives, bad for our country, and most importantly, bad for our nation’s security.

That is why Rand fought for an amendment that would’ve allowed Congress to have more oversight on immigration and further scrutinize those allowed in the country to keep America safer. Marco Rubio blocked this amendment, and other conservative amendments because of a backroom deal with liberal Senator Chuck Schumer.

This critical issue is now becoming even more important because of the Paris attacks and the Syrian refugee crisis. Rubio’s liberal immigration policy puts our country even more at risk.

And it gets even worse. Rubio even wanted these refugees to come into our country without Rand’s immigration security amendment.

Here is what National Review said:

In September, Rubio told a South Carolina town hall audience, “We would be potentially open to the relocation of some of these individuals at some point in time to the United States.” But the prospect that terrorists could use the refugee crisis to smuggle themselves into the United States was obvious in September, as was the fact that there is no system of vetting available to us that could mitigate that risk.

Rubio has expressed support for allowing the refugees into our country, opposed Rand’s amendment to strengthen the security measures in immigration policy, and cut a backroom deal with Chuck Schumer to oppose conservatives. This should forever preclude conservatives from supporting Marco Rubio.

We can trust Rand to stand strong for conservative principles, and make decisions that will make our country safer here at home.

Please join thousands of concerned Americans in standing with Rand on his opposition of allowing Syrian refugees into this nation. To sign petition

In Liberty,
