Ted Cruz Demolishes Marco Rubio For Breaking Promise He Made To Voters Against Amnesty
Sen. Ted Cruz smashed Sen. Marco Rubio, one of his 2016 GOP presidential rivals, for breaking his promise to the voters who elected him that he would not support amnesty for illegal aliens.
The aggressive comments from Cruz about came during the last part of his lengthy exclusive interview with Breitbart News in his Greenville campaign office here last Monday.
They represent one of the most unreported stories in the 2016 presidential cycle: Rubio’s work on not just the “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill, but now the recently discovered unlimited mass Muslim-migration provisions in his so-called “I-Squared” bill recently uncovered by a Breitbart News investigation from reporter Julia Hahn.
“Border security is national security,” Cruz told Breitbart News in the interview when asked what separates him and Rubio when it comes to national security. “No candidate who has advocated amnesty, who has advocated leaving our border unsecured, who has advocated giving President [Barack] Obama the ability to bring in tens of thousands of Syrian refugees with no background checks can plausibly claim to be an effective leader on national security,” he said.
“An unsecured border and millions coming into this country illegally with the promise of amnesty—with no background checks whatsoever—is fundamentally inconsistent with keeping America safe,” he said. “Each of us in public office makes a choice, makes a choice of where you stand.”
It remains to be seen if CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, the moderator of Tuesday night’s debate in Las Vegas, will ask Rubio about his Gang of Eight amnesty bill.
