Marco Rubio Arrested In Arizona After Refusing To Show Green Card To Police

2016 presidential hopeful Marco Rubio was arrested on Wednesday in Phoenix, Arizona, after refusing to show police officers a green card or proof of his American citizenship following a routine traffic stop.

Rubio was detained for nearly a full hour, but was released after Arizona Senator John McCain called the precinct, demanding Rubio’s immediate release. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and former Governor Jan Brewer also made calls on Rubio’s behalf, though the junior US Senator from Florida had reportedly already been released before they’d made the calls.

Campaign staffers say that Rubio, a Cuban-American born in Miami, Florida, was visiting an unidentified potential campaign donor in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday, having flown in from the campaign trail in Iowa. Rubio planned to stay in the city only until that evening, when he was flying back to Des Moines.

Rubio and a member of his campaign staff rented a car at the airport and drove out to meet with the potential donor. They were stopping to get lunch on their way back to the airport when two police officers pulled them over. Those officers say that Rubio, who was driving at the time, was “suspected of being Mexican or some other kind of illegal.”

Authorities say Rubio was ordered to present a green card. When Rubio explained he was born in Miami, both officers drew their pistols, called for backup, and ordered him to show his driver’s license, birth certificate, social security card, passport, high school yearbook photo, and two pieces of mail in his name. He was also asked to provide the phone number of a Caucasian friend who would vouch for him. But Rubio did not have his social security card on his person, so the police decided to arrest him.

“It was an intense ordeal. I was shaking for an hour,” said Jim Gray, the campaign staffer who had accompanied Marco Rubio on the fateful trip to Phoenix. “I’m white, so they didn’t ask me for ID. Actually, one of them offered to buy me a beer and asked me if I’d been kidnapped. They let me fire off a couple rounds from their pistol, too… they were swell guys. But what they did to Senator Rubio was shocking. Patriotic, heroic, and American as all hell, but shocking.”

Rubio is reportedly back in Iowa and has resumed his normal campaign schedule. Gray says the young Republican Senator probably won’t discuss the matter further. “It happened. It’s time for the campaign to move on. I think this experience has given him even more resolve to fix this country’s broken immigration system. Because no matter what he looks like, Senator Rubio is white on the inside. And that’s what really matters, you know?”

If this is true, that's a damn shame...

Didn't know they were like the DC or the Onion. But I felt something was fishy when I read the Senator Rubio is white on the inside comment.

Would have been funnier if they didn't try to make it so over the top.....

These joke stories are more enjoyable if the illusion of reality lasts longer.

Nice try !

Don't interrupt me when I'm talking to myself
