Tea Party groups are not supporting Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and the rest of the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” and their immigration bill despite erroneous reporting by Politico, Breitbart News has learned.
Politico’s lead story Tuesday afternoon claims that Tea Partiers are the “new ally” of the Gang of Eight pushing immigration reform. “Immigration reform supporters are about to get some new conservative bonafides — prominent tea party backers,” Politico’s Anna Palmer and Tarini Parti wrote. “Several conservative activists and tea party group leaders are meeting with Sen. Marco Rubio Tuesday afternoon to discuss immigration reform, including a list of what they support – and don’t.”
