Senator Marco Rubio appeared on FOX News Sunday today and was asked some tough questions by host Chris Wallace with regard to the border and immigration.

While Rubio clearly articulated a three point plan to deal with the problems, he pointed out that the biggest obstacle at the moment is the president.

On July 30, 2014, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) helped introduce the “Campus Accountability and Safety Act,” a bipartisan initiative aimed at forcing universities to address and curb the problem of sexual assault on college campuses.

During a press conference Wednesday, the coalition pushing the Act emphasized problems with existing policies, saying that...

I believe Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz to be “natural born Citizens” and eligible to be President.  Here’s why.

1. Summary

There are few eligibility requirements to be President.  You don’t have to be smart, wise, experienced, honest, educated, or a particular gender or race.

Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution provides, in pertinent...

I promised to do this long ago, and did the research with the assistance of a former student, but couldn’t bring myself to actually write it up for multiple reasons:

Sure, I disagree with Marco Rubio on the Gang of 8 immigration bill, particularly the amnesty part.

But what’s most galling is that Rubio appears to have been played by Chuck Schumer on the Democratic side, and McCain/Graham on the Republican side, suckered into being the point man drawing fire on a...

I’ve flagged the pathway to citizenship (even more so than other forms of legalization) as the critical issue in the immigration debate.

Granting citizenship to adults who came here illegally is horrible policy which historically has proven a huge carrot to increased illegal immigration regardless of the rhetoric about how it never...

It’s fairly well known that prior to his role in the Gang of 8, Marco Rubio was opposed to an across the board amnesty, and was critical of the 1986 amnesty.

In this October 2009 interview, uncovered by Morgen Richmond (formerly of Verum Serum), Rubio takes a particularly hard line, insisting that “you...

If Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and others in the Republican Party want to reward adults who broke the immigration laws with citizenship, they should have the guts to announce it as such.

And then go on an overseas apology tour to apologize to the millions if not tens of millions of people...

How low will left-wing organizations go in demonizing Marco Rubio?
