Senator Marco Rubio made it crystal clear that he will fight President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency to fund the border wall as he appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” over the weekend. The Florida Senator has long been described as a “Republican in Name Only,” and it looks like he is taking John McCain’s place as the president’s nemesis in the Senate. Well, the 47-year-old former presidential candidate instantly got destroyed. You’ll love this.
Make no mistake, the immigration crisis in our country has gone on for over 30 years. That’s because it behooves the Democrats and the Republicans not to fix it — but for different reasons. The Democrats need illegals to gain new voters and to dominate the talking point that they are the party that cares about minorities.
The Republicans get pressure from the national Chamber of Commerce coalition, which lines the pockets of many Republicans in Name Only (RINO’s), to ensure there are illegal aliens available for cheap labor. And for those reasons, it took a man who was not beholden to any outside influence to really address the crisis at the Southern border. Americans know that man is President Trump.
So when RINO Marco Rubio made an appearance on Chuck Todd’s Meet the Press on Sunday saying he will fight the president declaring a national emergency to fund the wall, he made those in the country’s largest business lobby, who donate millions to the Senator, very happy.
“Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall on the U.S. Mexico border would be a ‘terrible idea’ and that he would fight it,” Breitbart reported.
After Chuck Todd asked Rubio if he would “fight the president” on declaring a national emergency, the silver-tongued Florida Senator said, “Sure. Because I think it’s important. Look I don’t think we will have to fight. I’m not sure they will do that. I know it’s an option they looked at. But now you are at the mercy of a district court and ultimately an appellate court.”
“It may not withstand if you look at some of the other rulings we have seen. The other is the precedent it would set. It’s not a good precedent to set. It doesn’t mean I don’t want border security,” Rubio added.
Yeah, but does that mean he wants the wall? Notice how he says “border security.” That’s exactly what the Democrats say. Rubio is avoiding saying the dirty word: wall.
Rubio ran for the presidency in 2016 but was defeated by Trump over this very issue. Americans remembered he was part of the immigration Gang of Eight, working hand in hand with Chuck Schumer, John McCain, and Jeff Flake, who thought the problem with illegal immigration would be solved by increasing the number of legal immigrants to meet labor demands. It makes no sense.
The RINOs believe the problem of illegal immigration is driven wholly or in part by legal immigration caps being too low for labor market demands, the Washington Examiner reported. It’s all about cheap labor for the Chamber of Commerce who then buy RINOs off like Marco Rubio. In June 2018, “the Chamber of Commerce pleaded with Congress to grant legal status to a million illegal immigrants,” the Washington Times reported.
This means President Trump is fighting both the Democrats and the RINOs to build the wall. This is also why when the GOP had the majority in both the House and Senate they failed to pass funding for the wall. Trump is standing alone with very few allies in Washington, D.C.
Well, Americans made it crystal clear to Rubio and his taskmasters who line his pockets with cash, going against the president on the wall isn’t going to end well. “Democrats and Republicans need to quit playing games and work together to BUILD THAT WALL. It is a National Security issue. Each day they delay working for the American Citizens, it is endangering OUR lives,” tweeted Sharon Jordan.

Albert Thai is livid, pointing out breaking ranks with Trump on this issue is a sure fire way to see the Democrats take back control. He tweeted, “It won’t matter. If you guys don’t stick together you’re going to f*ck everything up. DO you really want that? Do you want to be spending the years between 2020 and 2024 dealing with the Democrats in power? DO YOU???????”

There are thousands of responses all over social media by Americans who are excoriating Marco Rubio for breaking rank with the president. It was no accident he decided to go on a national news show to make his anti-Trump anti-wall comments. He is peddling the Democrats talking points when he uses terms like “I want border security.” He avoids saying “wall.”
What a coward. Marco Rubio is a bought and paid for RINO politician. He toes the line for those at the Chamber of Commerce, who are against the wall and who make sure his campaign coffers are filled. This is about using illegals for cheap labor which drives down wages for all working Americans.
Make sure Marco Rubio and all RINOs who are betraying the president, know we aren’t stupid. We aren’t fooled by their silver-tongued responses pretending they care anything about so-called “border security.” When they betray Trump, they betray all of us. And we won’t forget they chose to align with those Democratic rats, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
