Someone has convinced Rubio that talking about amnesty is not going to help him

You probably know that Marco Rubio was one of the lead sponsors of the "Gang of 8" bill that would have granted amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.  Rubio says now that that amnesty should be on hold.  But did you know that Rubio still supports amnesty for so-called "Dreamers," children of illegal aliens who have come into the country, many of whom are going to college with your tax dollars?

Rubio has called for a compromise on the DREAM Act. Rubio’s proposal would grant young illegals a nonimmigrant visa that would let them live in the country legally while they work, pay taxes, and seek green cards.

Rubio has said that, while he disagreed with President Obama’s 2012 executive order protecting young immigrants brought to America illegally by their parents, he doesn’t think it fair to deport them at this point.

Rubio doesn't talk about that much.  But he still supports Obama's unconstitutional amnesty for these children.  And once they become citizens, they will, through chain migration, bring millions more illegals with them.

Rubio voted in 2014 to continue funding for Obama's illegal amnesty:

Rubio voted in favor of advancing legislation giving President Obama $2.7 billion more to help process the surge of illegal immigrants in 2014, instead of mandating deportations and holding him accountable for amnesty.

Rubio is also open to bringing more Muslim refugees in:

Marco Rubio that, "I would be open to (more Syrian refugees) if it can done in a way that allows us to ensure that among them are not infiltrated — people who were, you know, part of a terrorist organization that are using this crisis.

I think we all know that these people can never be vetted.  But Rubio is very emotional about this topic, crying at the mention of bringing in more illegals.

However, Rubio doesn't talk much about these topics anymore.  You can see the shift in emphasis from his website.  On his issues page, he lists many issues he talks about: Common Core, Cuba, debt, foreign policy, Iran, and many other topics.  But no topic called "immigration."  (He does have one for sanctuary cities, which he claims to oppose.)

Isn't it curious that Rubio doesn't have a single topic expressing his views on securing the border or dealing with illegal aliens?

I think someone has convinced Marco Rubio that talking about amnesty for illegal aliens isn't going to help him.  And I think he's right.
