Marco Rubio: Donald Trump Has 'Absurd' Immigration Plan

Donald Trump's immigration plan "makes no sense," Marco Rubio said on Oct. 25.

“His rhetoric is a little louder, but if you think about where he was six months ago, his position on immigration six months ago was nothing like what he’s saying now, and even what he’s saying now borders on the absurd,” the Florida senator said of the Republican front runner on CNN’s "State of the Union."

Trump's proposal to build a giant wall around the entire U.S.-Mexico border and deport as many undocumented immigrants as possible has become one of his major campaign focuses, although he has held hard line views on the subject for a long time.

"I actually have a theory that Mexico is sending their absolute worst, possibly including prisoners, in order for us to bear the cost, both financial and social," the real estate mogul wrote in 2011. "This would account for the fact that there is so much crime and violence. ”

Under U.S. law, immigrants can face deportation for committing certain crimes; however methods for enforcing certain immigration laws are hotly debated, notes Breitbart.

“[Trump is] going to deport all these people, and then he’s going to allow back in the ones that are good… His plan makes no sense,” Rubio said, according to Breitbart.

The GOP presidential hopeful said that Trump has not expressed a thorough understanding of the America's pressing issues.

"I would say that ultimately the next president of the United States, on their first day in office, must understand the threats that face this country and must have shown good judgment about what to do about those issues," Rubio told CNN.

Rubio anticipates a surge in his own poll numbers and believes that Trump has plateaued.

"I'm going to support the Republican nominee, and I'm comfortable that it's not going to be Donald Trump, and I'm increasingly confident that it's going to be me," he said.

Rubio acknowledged his low poll numbers, but he remains optimistic nonetheless.

"I've been up, I've been down [in the polls]," he said. "It's a very unusual year, and I think part of it is that people are really angry about the direction of our country."
