Florida Patriot Groups Feel Betrayed 
by Senator Rubio & Continue Fight Against Immigration Bill

Withdrawal of support for Senator Rubio

— Conservative organizations throughout Florida have united in withdrawing support from Senator Rubio over a string of broken promises made to the American people regarding Immigration. In an April 16, 2013 letter from the Senator to Florida Patriot Groups, he pledged not to support legislation that is rushed through Congress, does not truly and legitimately secure our borders or that leads to further illegal immigration in the future. The current bill, current amendment and the rush to ram the bill through the Senate by week's end violate this letter and earlier public statements by the Senator. This bill will forever be known as the Rubio Amnesty bill. As a result, Patriot groups, including the Martin 9/12 Committee, are withdrawing their support for Senator Rubio and demand that he walk away from this bill.

These Patriot Groups announce "Kill the Bill" week beginning on Monday, June 24, 2013. Monday will be called "Bait and Switch Day" in honor of the ineffective and costly 1,000-plus page amendment to the bill allegedly to strengthen border security provisions of the bill. It is apparent that the Senate intends to pass an amnesty-first bill at all costs and that the amendment is only to give the appearance of increased border security. Given the fact that there is no enforcement of existing border security laws, Senator Rubio's support of this last minute amendment further erodes the public's trust in the Senator and erodes the public's trust in the ability of the federal government to protect its citizens. On Monday, citizens are urged to call and email Senator Rubio and Senator Nelson urging them to kill this amendment. Most importantly, they are urged to visit the Senator Rubio's local office and deliver a signed "You have lost our trust and support, Kill the Bill!" statement.
