Rand Paul may have delivered one of the most stinging (and true) criticism’s of the latest GOP presidential debate, when he leveled Marco Rubio with an attack on Rubio’s border policies. Paul reminded millions of GOP voters about Rubio’s weakness on amnesty and illegal immigration. Paul underlined the link between Rubio, Chuck Schumer and the entire amnesty cabal in a way that may leave Rubio hurting in the days to come.
“The other thing is, the one thing that might have stopped San Bernardino that might have stopped 9/11, was stricter controls on those who came here. And Marco has opposed at every point increased border security for those who come to our country. On his Gang of Eight bill, he would have liberalized immigration, but he did not and he steadfastly opposed any new border security requirements for refugees or students.
Last week, I introduced another bill saying we need more security. We need more scrutiny. Once again, Marco opposed this. So, Marco can’t have it both ways. He thinks he wants to be this, ‘Oh, I’m great and strong on national defense.’ But he’s the weakest of all the candidates on immigration.
He is the one for an open border that is leaving us defenseless. If we want to defend the country, we have to defend against those coming in and Marco has more of an allegiance to Chuck Schumer, to the liberals than he does to conservative policy.”
