Secret emails obtained exclusively by Breitbart News show the libertarian Cato Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are colluding on immigration reform messaging in the wake of the Boston Marathon terror attack in order to push the Gang of Eight bill that was released this past week.
On Friday afternoon, political consultant Peggy Ellis of Ellis & Company, who is supporting the Gang of Eight immigration efforts, emailed Talkers from Rubio to the group of organizations supporting their efforts such as Cato and ATR.
The email was headlined: Rubio talking points re: Boston terrorists vis a vis immigration reform. The message contained three talking points from Sen. Rubio, the first of which argued that the immigration bill would prevent people like the Boston Marathon terrorists from getting into or staying in the country.
These terrorists came here under the existing system, the one opponents of reform want to leave in place, Sen. Rubio wrote in his first talking point.
The second Rubio talking point argued that the terrorists didnt cross the border to get into America.
In his third talking point, Rubio argued that authorities only know who the terrorists are because they came here legally to begin with.

I don’t trust a single senaturd on this... I don’t give two sh*ts if they’re Tea Party types or not. Not a single one has my trust.
Does anyone still think Rubio is simply being naive?
Sadly doesn’t surprise me. The Cato Institute and such “political consultant” firms have been at the leading edge of the cheap labor lobby and this immigration treason bill being pushed by the Gang of Eight. Even with a clear threat to American security from al-Qaida terrorist sleeper cells, smuggled in through the H1-B or student visas, not to mention the damage to American wages and jobs as yet another recession edges in, these traitors in shiny offices are lobbying for still more of the same and even more weakening of our current immigration enforcement. RINO traitors like Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham are their mouthpieces. They’ve been bought off, and they’ve become the willing dupes in the process.
Oh, we don't want to leave the existing system in place. We want to shut the border and then start deporting all the illegals and most Moslems. So are you saying you're down for that?
A “dupe” isn’t bought off. A “conspirator” is bought off.
A dupe is fooled.
Thus endeth the lesson.
/And people should stop saying “Gang of Eight.”
They’re the “Gang of Ocho.”

Rhetorical question, you know the answer.
True that. Either way they’re RINO traitors, and it’s critical to mobilize every resource we have to take them down.
Since Ronald Reagan made conservatism popular, all the rinos have been camouflaging themselves by calling themselves conservatives. Now since the Tea Party has come on the scene they have to call themselves Tea Party people but they are just the same old rinos doing their old rino tricks. You can’t just look at the soup label, you have to read the ingredients on the back. :^)
We need background checks and psychological evaluations of all immigrants. They do it in business they can do it for them.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we study to deceive.
>> Does anyone still think Rubio is simply being naive?
Did anyone ever? I didn’t.
they came here seeking asylum as persecuted sad little muslims.
Even now Mark Levin cannot bring himself to criticize the guy without immediately saying what a stand up conservative he is.
He's a fraud.
“We need background checks and psychological evaluations of all immigrants. They do it in business they can do it for them.”
Actually, it’s the idiots that we elect to the Senate that need background checks and psychological evaluations.
Starting with Rubio.
Call your rep’s. NOW! It may not make a difference, but we can at least raise Hell about it!
Dan Coats and Chuck Grassley at least have stood up and said what should be common sense— that lax enforcement and the poor economy mean this is a terrible time to be pushing an amnesty and increasing the H1B visa. They deserve respect for at least telling Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham to sit down and shut up while the real policymakers hash this out and take a closer look.
