Will Rubio Bolt The Gang Of Eight Amnesty Bill?

Call Senator Marco Rubio (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) and urge him to bolt the Gang of Eight if S. 744 doesn’t deal with the fundamental issues conservatives are concerned about -- such as no “legalization” of illegal immigrants until the border is verified as secure and no access to entitlements before citizenship. Ask him: Are you prepared to vote “NO” on final passage in the Senate if conservative concerns about S. 744 are not addressed?
