• Rubio OWNS Illegal Alien Hecklers: ‘Do That In Another Country, You Will Be In Jail’

    GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio was heckled during his speech Thursday at the Faith and Freedom “Road to Majority” conference in D.C. when a couple of undocumented immigrants demanded that the Florida senator support deportation amnesty .

    “Protect DAPA!” one protester shouted repeatedly, referencing the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Resident. The protester announced his name, said he is a “black male” and undocumented.

    President Obama implemented DAPA, a deportation amnesty which applies to illegal immigrants who arrived as adults, but the policy is on hold after a federal judge issued an injunction in February. The Obama administration has appealed, but has so far been unable to convince the courts to lift the injunction.

    “Why do you keep supporting the deportation of families?” and another protester shouted at Rubio.

    The protesters were ushered out of the room by wary attendees and staff.

    Rubio took a sip of water, paused for a moment, then made a brilliant point that even the heckler would have to acknowledge.

    “You do that in another country, you will be in jail tonight,” he said. “If you do that in another country, your family house will be raided, your businesses will be closed.”

    “In America, people have the right to interrupt a speech, you have the right to be rude, you have the right to be wrong. We live in a free society.”

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who spoke after Rubio, noted that it should have been him who faced the hecklers, asserting that he was supposed to speak first.

    “I feel kind of shortchanged. Are there any protesters left?” he asked. “If there’s anybody left, we can start with the protest.”
