Marco Rubio took a heavy hit on Wednesday when the cover of La Opinión, the nation’s largest Spanish-language newspaper, portrayed him with the infamous “hope and change” imagery that defined Obama’s presidential campaign.
The paper wrote: “The Republican Obama? The surge of the Latino Senator in the presidential campaign has made him a target of criticism on the subject of immigration.”
Rubio and Obama share many of the same policy goals, such as Obamatrade and military intervention in Libya, but their most striking similarities are on the subject of illegal immigration.
Breitbart reported that both men also support illegal alien citizenship, expanded refugee resettlement, more green cards, more H-1B visas, and large permanent expansions to the rate of immigration and foreign worker importation.
He was also the co-author of Obama’s 2013 immigration bill.
Rubio has not renounced his support for a single policy item outlined in the Gang of Eight bill – including his goal to triple green card issuances, double foreign worker visas, and grant citizenship to illegal immigrants.
