On Thursday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said one reason illegal immigrants must be legalized as soon as possible is so they can help fund border security measures by paying taxes and fines.
During an interview on “The Andrea Tantaros Show,” Rubio, as Byron York points out, first said there was no choice but to legalize at least 11 million illegal immigrants because he said the country “cannot wait another four years” to enact immigration reform.
He then said illegal immigrants needed to be registered “as soon as possible” so the fines they pay into the system help fund border security programs.
â€œWe need to register them as soon as possible, not just to keep the problem from getting worse, but weâ€™re going to require them to pay a fine, and thatâ€™s the money that we are going to use to pay for the border security,â€ Rubio, said, according to York. â€œIf we donâ€™t get that fine money from the people that have violated our immigration laws, then the American taxpayer is going to have to pay for border security.â€
