Marco Rubio: Donald Trump's controversial immigration rhetoric 'borders on the absurd'
Yahoo ^ | 10/25/2015 | Maxwell Tani

Marco Rubio (R-Florida) listens to a question during a campaign town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) is slightly turning up the heat on presidential rival Donald Trump over the Republican front-runner's controversial illegal-immigration statements. In an interview that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Rubio said that the way Trump speaks about immigration is "absurd," and questioned whether the real-estate mogul actually believes his own rhetoric. "His rhetoric is a little louder, but if you think about his position on immigration six months ago, his position on immigration six months ago is nothing like his position on immigration now. Even what he's saying now borders on the absurd," Rubio said. "It's just Donald being Donald," he added to dismiss Trump's position.

Is No-show Rubio even eligible?

He does NOT know the purpose of a Congressman (voting).

Because making citizens of millions of poor, illiterate, unskilled, uneducated people who broke the law to sneak in, while 93 million Americans remain underemployed makes such perfect sense.

Rubio’s problem is that a majority of Americans
DO NOT find it absurd.

Totally owned by Sen. Yertle (a.k.a. Obama’s “Mitch”) and the K-Street bagmen.

What borders on absurd is how many of our Representatives and Senators are more concerned for illegal aliens that broke into the country than about the citizens.

Deport 36 million criminal trespassers?

Why not?

They weren’t invited and they are sucking the lifeblood out of the economy.

They found their way here, I’m sure with the right encouragement to leave most of them would find their way back home.

Yeah, because protecting our borders and stopping 135,000 innocent AMERICANS from being murdered by illegal aliens is controversial. WTH?

Do these traitorous turds even have a clue as to how easy it is for terrorists to cross our open border? They are turning the USA into a police state claiming they are doing it to protect us from terrorism. While putting a sign on the southern border that says “Terrorists Welcome, Enter Here”.

I'm sorry, Rubio, but do you honestly think that the best way to challenge Trump is on the one thing that polls (and gets people out to the polls) the highest?

Keywords here: Illegal aliens. There's no immigration involved, they're simply here to cash in on hopping the border.

Rubio wants to coddle the invaders.

I prefer the bayonet or go home choice.

Rubio as a candidate for President is absurd.
