Student protesters disrupted a speech Friday by US Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American and rising Republican star, accusing him of “anti-immigrant” positions.

Rubio was addressing a Hispanic leadership conference at a golf resort near Miami about the American dream when students in the audience rose up and shouted, “Then why don’t you support the immigrants?”

The protesters, including some undocumented immigrants, also brandished signs that said: “Marco Rubio – Latino or Tea Partino?” and “Your party or your people?”

Some in the audience booed the protesters, and others applauded, while Rubio encouraged the audience to let them have their say.

“I’ve challenged the Republican nominees and all Republicans to not just be the anti-immigration party but to be the pro-legal immigration party, a party that has a positive platform and agenda on how we can create legal immigration,” Rubio said.

    Simple solution. Split Mexico in half, then into 2 states, then add them to the country. Then go in with the military and clean up the cartels that are terrorizing the citizens. Rebuild the country which will stimulate the economy. Then no one will want to leave and many will return. Thats called a win win.

    How did you know the protesters included “some undocumented immigrants”? Were they
    separated from the crowd? Were there “papers” checked? Whre they the arrested? and
    deported? Just wondering. I consider myself an intelligent person and I enjoy reading and
    understanding all sides of problems and issues, but I don’t like the problem “posed” as
    just black and white, since most problems and their solutions are never simple. And I
    don’t like “journalists” writing about “facts” in an biased manner. Try to keep your writing
    unbiased if you want to be taken seriously. Thanks.

    Why are Florida Republicans pushing Romney? I will not vote for him as I don’t trust him.
    I didn’t four years ago and don’t now.
