Saint Louis, MO: Over the weekend, Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum released a 15-page memo on Senator Marco Rubio’s immigration record and how it greatly differs from the message he’s running on for the Republican nomination for president.

“Once he got elected, he betrayed us all,” Phyllis Schlafly told WorldNetDaily in an article last week. “He said he was against amnesty and against the establishment… And now, of course, he’s big for amnesty and letting all the illegal immigrants in.”

“The real Marco Rubio on immigration is a someone that Marco Rubio the presidential contender doesn’t want early-state voters to see,” said Ed Martin. “He ran for the Senate in 2010 as a young, energetic, anti-amnesty conservative, earning the confidence of Phyllis and so many other leaders. Once in office, he became a leading co-sponsor on Chuck Schumer’s ‘Gang of 8’ amnesty bill. Now he’s trying to explain it all away in presidential debates.

“It’s become apparent to Eagle Forum that Marco Rubio cannot be trusted to admit the truth about his immigration record. We have assembled a 15-page memo detailing his policy flip-flop and want to make sure that voters are aware of these inconsistencies as the early states cast their ballots for the Republican nominee.”

Ed Martin is available for comments and interviews on this topic. Please contact Eagle Forum Communications Director Ryan Hite to schedule any immediate interviews. Find the “Rubio Immigration Record” here on the Eagle Forum website.
