In a column published late Wednesday, conservative author Ann Coulter ripped Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his support of the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill.
“When Republicans start lying like Democrats, you can guess they are pushing an idea that’s bad for America,” Coulter wrote in a piece headlined: “If Rubio’s Amnesty is So Great, Why Is He Lying?”
“During his William Ginsburg-like tour of the Sunday talk shows last weekend, Sen. Marco Rubio was the Mount Vesuvius of lies about his immigration bill,” Coulter continued.
Coulter quoted Rubio from Fox News Sunday, explaining his border security enforcement mechanism – something she described as a “merely meaningless goal.”
“Basically, Homeland Security will have five years to meet that goal,” Rubio said on Fox. “If after five years, Homeland Security has not met that number, it will trigger the Border Commission, who will then take over this issue for them.”
Coulter rejected this explanation entirely. “So the water torture awaiting the Department of Homeland Security if it fails to secure the border is … ANOTHER GOVERNMENT COMMISSION WILL BE CREATED!” Coulter snarked, “Take that, Homeland Security! Ha — we have you now! The only thing more frightening than ‘another government commission’ is a ‘strongly worded letter.’”
