Amnesty Blow-back: Sen. Marco Rubio tied for 6th in New Hampshire 2016 poll...
Sen. Marco Rubio has done serious damage to his image and credibility with Republicans and Conservatives. Supporting Sen. Chuck Schumer's "Gang of Eight" amnesty without border security bill has cost him. Senate democrats were desperate to get Rubio on-board. it's unclear why he signed on for and campaigned for such a bad deal. The Schumer bill will legalize more than 11 million new democratic borders and has no serious enforcement of border security.
