Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) criticized Sen. Marco Rubio’s, R-Fla., immigration reform efforts on Friday by making a biblical reference to Judas.
Via her Twitter account, Palin made her feelings known.
“Obama Calls Rubio to Congratulate Him on Immigration Reform http://shar.es/xLWXm … Hope it was worth 30 pieces of silver.”
She then took to her Facebook page to further illiterate her feelings.
“Great job, GOP establishment,” began the statement. “You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill. It was the loss of working class voters in swing states that cost us the 2012 election, not the Hispanic vote.”
Palin added: “Legal immigrants respect the rule of law. You disrespect Hispanics with your assumption that they desire ignoring the rule of law.”
Palin has been critical of immigration reform in recent days, criticizing Republicans who support the bill — including Rubio and Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., — as well as the content of the legislation.
