Rubio: ‘I Believe We Do Have to Build a Wall’
Wednesday, January 17, 2018 4:26 AM


Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was asked by host Laura Ingraham where he stood on immigration — if it was in line with a proposal from Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), or one in line from Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA). Rubio said he wasn’t aware of the specifics of those proposals, but offered his views, which included a border wall, ending the diversity lottery and instituting a merit-based system. “I can tell you what I believe in — I believe we do have to build a wall and improve our overall security like at airports with entry-exit,” he said. “I believe we should end the diversity lottery. I’ve been saying that for about five years. I believe we should move toward a merit-based system of immigration. I believe that we should find a way like the president asked, to deal with the people — or many of the people — that find themselves under a DACA designation. And I think the big debate is how do you put all of that together. And the way I view it is the president’s number one priority is border security.

Clyburn: Trump’s Base Supporters Are ‘Ignoble Voters’
Wednesday, January 17, 2018 2:59 AM


Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) said the supporters of President Donald Trump are “ignoble voters.” Clyburn said, “You know, Chris, I think there’s a little thing we talk about a lot, and it’s already been mentioned on the show. It’s one thing to have a base of support. It’s something else to have base supporters. Those are totally two different things. I beg to differ with those who say that this president is doing things to appeal to his base of support. No, he’s doing things to appeal to his base voters. Those people who are ignoble in their pursuit of stuff.” He added, “And I would ask any of your listeners to look it up, and you see a base voter is totally different from a base of voters. And that is what’s going on here. And so every time I hear them saying his base supporters, I think of the real meaning of a base supporter and the word, the best word I can think of is ignoble voters.” (h/t Grabien) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
