A high-ranking senate aide told Breitbart News on Wednesday that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is searching for an escape hatch from the Gang of Eight immigration bill.

I don’t agree with the bill, not even the framework, but I wish people would not trash Rubio.
Why not trash Rubio ~ after all, he’s their leider?
Its not like people didn’t try to warn him.
Lesson #1: “Ignore anything McCain and his girlfriend have to say”
Lesson #2: “See Lesson #1”
Lay down with dogs, you get fleas, Marco........need some calamine lotion?........
Marco showed incredible stupidity in getting involved with Schumer in the first place, I will always question his judgement now.
Might be a good idea.
Memo to Marco:
CLOSE THE BORDERS FIRST
Then, we’ll talk.
He'll never be able to wash the stink off.
There is a difference in admonishing someone and trashing. He deserves the admonishment, not the trashing.
I haven’t trashed him in public, but you really should have seen the email I sent him. It smoked.
Rubio has been horrible on this issue. Truly horrible. He’s damn good on nearly everything else. As a Florida constituent, I am not going to throw Rubio under the bus...at least not yet. He can come out of this okay if he exits the gang correctly or proposes a reasonable alternative that gets rid of the amnesty and strengthens the border enforcement.
If he continues to push this crap sandwich all the way through the senate, he deserves whatever is thrown at him.
good. then he’s still listening, at least. i still like rubio and God knows we need him to hold the line for the next four years as one of only 5 or so principled conservatives in the senate.
mcconnell needs to feel the heat. we need to force 60 vote cloture. his phone is busy line so that is a good sign.
He wants to be a US Senator, he’s got to put up with the trash.
He was wrong to go along with any scheme that does not stop the invasion of the US first. But I've been defending him, kind of. I've said he is who he is, and it seems he's hispanic first and a US citizen second. That being said, I think he can learn how we conservatives feel about people coming to the US honestly and legally.
I think he was played by Schummer and McCain. Their primary goal, more than even destroying the integrity of US citizenship and residency, was to stop conservative, articulate, and intelligent Rubio. Rubio was played.
That being said, I'm not one trashing him. Rubio is intelligent, he's passionate about making things better, and he could bring the US in a good direction. But he can't be naive or stupid about the intentions of those who will do anything to continue the destruction of the US.
No need to trash him as he's done a thorough job of trashing himself by joining this latest Democrat ruse to try and grant amnesty to 15 - 20 million illegal aliens. Almost everything about this latest amnesty ruse has been deceitful and dishonest, and especially those absurd radio ads Rubio participated in that have run for weeks.
This IS Rubio’s “we’ll build the fence in a couple of years or have a meeting” bill.
I live in Florida and i voted for him. I won’t trash him but i wont vote for him for US Senate again...or certainly if he gets nomination for higher office
He got into office..traded in his conservative street creds and joined the establishment E GOP
I have no problem with that...I merely wont vote for them
If that means nothing but Democrats get elected..thats fine with me..
I sleep well at night because the lesser of evils is still evil and Marco Rubio either lied to us..or was naive.
I dont really give a rip he had his shot..i voted for him..i wont vote for him again...EVER!
He’s better then Nelson but this has been sorely disappointing.
Once a so called republican fool drinks the Shmuky's kool-aid, one is left with the fall out of that decision. Rubio's political career as a conservative republican is toast. Next, he will probably switch parties as to stay in DC and he can really kiss on Shmuky’s ass then. I'm sure Shmuky and gang are loving this.
