TODAY MARCO RUBIO RESPONDED–
Marco Rubio SLAMMED Breitbart.com and the ICE Union President today on FOX News…
Rubio accused the ICE President of “Conspiracy Theories!”
Marco also went after Breitbart: “We don’t even credential them to our events.”
On Saturday U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) released a statement today highlighting the important role ICE Council President Crane played in defeating the 2013 ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration bill. Crane was smeared today by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) after he urged voters not to trust the freshman senator on amnesty or immigration.
“Chris Crane is an honest man of integrity who has served his country for many years as a United States Marine and as an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer. He is an American hero who was chosen by nearly 6,000 ICE officers, agents and employees to head their union and speak to the nation on their behalf. He courageously spoke up to expose the administration’s political manipulation of ICE officers, providing all of us an early warning of the administration’s near total non-enforcement of immigration laws, years before it was widely known. When the Gang of eight and President Obama were drafting their immigration bill, he asked to be allowed to participate and provide input. In fact, House Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte and I personally requested that President Obama meet with the ICE union, but he never did. The White House and the Gang of Eight refused to listen to Chris and his officers because the truth is they never wanted their professional advice. The bill was designed to benefit the powerful special interests who guided its creation from the beginning – it was not designed to benefit the national interest, nor the interests of our nation’s law enforcement officers. Chris Crane exposed the fatal weaknesses of that bill and played a major role in stopping what would have been a disaster for the country.”
