Rand Paul Says Rubio Blocked Border Security Legislation Needed To Combat Paris Style Attack

In the wake of the horrendous Paris attack Friday, Kentucky Senator and 2016 GOP Presidential candidate Rand Paul blasted Marco Rubio for working with Democrats to block an amendment to an immigration bill Paul says would help the government keep better track of who immigrates here.

According to The Hill:

“Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is blaming his Republican presidential rival, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), for blocking a border security amendment to an immigration bill two years ago.

Appearing at the Florida Republican Party’s Sunshine Summit in Orlando on Saturday, Paul said Friday’s attacks in Paris prove the need for better border security and enhanced monitoring of immigration and foreign visitors.

He said he tried to attach an amendment to a bipartisan immigration bill in 2013 doing just that, but the bill’s sponsors, led by Rubio and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), blocked it…

“I think one of the lessons we should learn from the tragedy in Paris is that we have to be very careful, and very cautious — extraordinarily cautious — about who comes to visit, who immigrates here and who studies here,” Paul said.”

  1. RUBIO IS ‘NOT’ FOR THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OR FOR PROTECTING US. THE SOONER THE BETTER THAT VOTERS LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT RUBIO THE BETTER OFF THIS ELECTION WILL BECOME. HE NEEDS TO BE KICKED TO THE CURB! Rubio is for Amnesty, Path to Citizenship, Birthright citizenship, TPP, H-1B and more. DO NOT BELIEVE RUBIO.

    • Yeah and Trump and Paul don’t want to spend money on national defense., paleo-conservative jerks. Paul opposes e-verify which would have gotten rid of 2 million illegal immigrants because they can’t find a job.Border Security never works 100 percent, get rid of the jobs magnet. As for national Security, Trump and Paul think Russia will destroy Isis, typical paleo-conservatives.

  2. I just wish the Republican candidates for president would stop beating each other up and start beating up the liberal democrats.

    • Hotnike, that is what the Primary election is for – to educate we the people on issues of each candidate. No matter how likeable Rubio may be, he has pushed for amnesty and has worked to block legislation that would increase the security of this country. When we need to all stick together is when the General election rolls around, so we can defeat the liberals! If we don’t weed out the liberal Republicans, we will be right back where we are now!!

      • Yes, you bring up a good point. I didn’t say I liked Rubio. I am afraid that all this arguing among the candidates is going to turn many voters off.

        • I like to have them compete with each other. Having said that however, I don’t like when they skip facts or stretch the truth. The amendment Paul wanted did not come with funding and would have likely grown the government some more. So, just saying Rubio was against the amendment is not accurate. Put in context wording like Rubio could not gather enough votes to pass part of the bill if he added the amendment would be more accurate and to add that the amendment would raise government spending would have been even better.

          • Thank you for giving us the truth. People will believe anything they hear without looking up the facts. And paul is the one that scolded Rubio because Rubio wants to increase military spending, which is the number one priority of the federal government.

      • Rubio likeable? He makes me ill…such a two- faced LIAR….HE WOULD SELL OUR COUNTRY OUT IN A SECOND FOR PERSONAL GAIN!
        Rubio is Totally UNTRUSTWORTHY!

  3. There you have it. Rubio would be the same old, same old as Prez and he is in the Senate,. CRUZ is the one! Fights the same old EVERY time.

  4. Rubio lies to get what he wants. I pray he will never be president. We have a liar now and the Nation suffers. We do not need another. If we are hit by ISIS I do believe it will be the death of the Dem Party. They have stood beside Obama, giving him everything he wanted regardless if it was good for America or not. They are as traitorous as he and will be just as guilty if we are hit. We need a President that will work for all Americans, not just his Party. We need to protect American jobs and the security and sovereignty of this Nation.

  5. RUBIO SUCKS!

    He is a GLIB PHONY who changes his positions on issues according to the polls.

    A TRAITOROUS ESTABLISHMENT LOSER!
