Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) criticized Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-Fla.) immigration reform efforts on Friday, making a biblical reference to Judas.

The comprehensive immigration reform bill passed the Senate 68-32 on Thursday.

President Barack Obama personally made phone calls from Africa to congratulate "the gang of eight," the bipartisan group of senators responsible for the bill, including Rubio.

Palin, a vocal opponent of immigration reform, jabbed at the gesture on Friday.

Obama didn't just make congratulatory calls. He also called House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), urging them to work on passing immigration reform in the House.
