ICYMI: Rubio Joins Hannity 

Feb 28, 2024 | Press Releases

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Hannity to discuss President Biden’s visit to the border and the problem of mass migration. Watch the full interview on YouTube and Rumble.

On President Biden’s visit to the border:

“6.2 million people [have entered the country], that’s what’s happened in the last three years since he’s taken over…. If you take 6.2 million people from anywhere on the planet, some percentage of them are going to be criminals. We’re seeing that now. In particular, we’re seeing members of a vicious gang that left Venezuela. They were terrorizing people in Peru, they were terrorizing people in Colombia, they were terrorizing people in Ecuador. Now, they’ve started to make their way into the United States. 

“Just today, it was announced that a migrant here, illegally released by Biden, has sex charges filed against him, and the victim is 14 years old. You’ve highlighted this horrible murder in Georgia. You’ve seen the crime on the streets of New York and in Chicago, and it’s only going to get worse. 

“These people aren’t committing crimes because they’re migrants. They’re committing crimes because they’re criminals. And they’re just allowing him to release them right into the country…. The president has to answer for all of this. The way he fixes this is by reinstalling the Trump policies that enforce the law. But he won’t do it, because it would require him to admit that Trump was right, so we’re going to continue with this mess. 

“God forbid…four more years of this. We’re going to have ten, 12, 15 million people released into this country. This is not immigration. We’ve got to stop calling it immigration. This is a mass migration. This is an invasion of the country. No other country in the world would tolerate it. And we are paying the price for it right now, in real time, with real American victims.”

On terrorists coming across the border:

“The problem is that you can’t vet all the migrants. In some cases, they’re coming with fake documents. These documents are produced in countries that will sell you a fake document without your real identity…. 

“Common sense tells you this: ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Hezbollah all have desires to enter the country. We know that the Iranians are trying to assassinate former leaders in the Trump administration in this country right now. Every one of them is aware that the largest migratory smuggling operation in the history of the world is operating right on the border of the United States. It’s allowed six million people in. These people are aware of that, and they are aware that if they send somebody here with a fake document or with a document with a wrong name on it, because they bought some passport somewhere in the Western Hemisphere, they’re going to be able to get into the country.  

“Something terrible is going to happen. It’s just a matter of time now. I hope that I’m wrong. I really, truly do, for the sake of our country. But you can’t let what will be, by the end of this year, probably 9 million people, into the country, and not expect that, among them, there aren’t going to be lots of criminals and lots of terrorists. 

“That’s what we’re facing. And that’s why you can’t have mass migration.”

On President Biden’s inability to secure the border:

“He won’t [reinstate Trump-era border security policies] because he has a radical base in his party that believes in open borders, that believes it’s inhumane to return anybody back [to where they came from]. He has turned the exceptions of laws into the rule, and the result is 6.2 million people, and climbing, every single day. We’re heading in a bad direction. Something bad is going to happen. It really is, unfortunately. And it’ll be Joe Biden’s fault.”
