Sen. Marco Rubio has taken some heat from conservatives for his support of Shamnesty Redux. Today, he had a chance to state his case on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show.

The Right Scoop has audio of the full interview:

Rubio made sure to emphasize his commitment to border security:

Before attempting to steer the conversation somewhat:

Limited government is our goal, no doubt, but it’s important to remember what that limited government’s job is:

Overall, despite his initial nervousness, the interview turned out well for Rubio:

Raves from Rush are coveted as conservative cred. Rubio did himself a favor today.

And regardless of your satisfaction with Rubio, he did say one thing we can all agree on:

Amen to that.

        I want a true conservative, I don’t care what color the package comes in.

    If you didn’t hear the interview, you need to. This is a man who has been there and done that and KNOWS, firsthand what it will take to stem the flow of illegals. God help us if he caves.

    At the end of the day this is amnesty, and not good for our country.

    • Ben Bollman

      I don’t agree with amnesty, but I get that it is going to be kind of hard to round up all of the millions of illegal aliens and they are already getting all of the free crap our tax dollars pay for, might as well make them pay for them too. Problem is they may be a permanent Democrat voting bloc.

    So, has anyone asked Rubio how the GOP survives after 11,000,000 uneducated third-worlders get welfare and voting rights?

  • Osumashi Kinyobe

    Let’s look at it this way: how many legal immigrants/residents want to be American, not just be in America (big distinction)? How many pay the exorbitant fees (which are almost prohibitive), take ESL/civics classes and work any number of jobs (perhaps not in their trained fields) just to be legal immigrants and then citizens? How fair is it, therefore, to grant amnesty for those who came in illegally and have no interest in being Americans or contributing to the country? It’s a slap in the face to those who have committed themselves to a country they have chosen and come to love.
