Rubio: Obama Made 'Terrible Mistake' Taking Cuba Off Terror List

By    |   Tuesday, 14 Apr 2015 10:55 PM

President Barack Obama made a "terrible mistake" taking Cuba off the list of state sponsors of terrorism on Tuesday, says GOP presidential candidate and son of Cuban exiles Marco Rubio.

"Cuba is a country that harbors fugitives of American justice, including a cop killer, including somebody on the 10 Most Wanted list of the FBI," the Florida senator said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File."

"It's a country that helped North Korea evade U.N. sanctions. It's a country that has two high military officials indicted in federal court for the murder of U.S. citizens in international airspace," Rubio continued. "That sounds like a terrorist government to me."

Rubio has been criticized by conservative Republicans because of his role in a bill that would have provided a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Rubio now says he was trying to get the most conservative bill possible with the hope it would be made even better in the House.

Host Megyn Kelly noted that Obama, in signing an executive order granting legal status to millions of illegal immigrants in late 2012, said that the next president would have a tough time taking away that legal status with an executive order.

Rubio said it would be difficult, but he would do it.

"There's going to be an outcry. It's going to be a very difficult issue, politically, to do," he said. "In my opinion, it needs to be done. If you don't do it, you can't do anything on immigration."
