As Three in GOP Embrace Immigration Reform, Rubio Comes Out Against His Own Bill

marco1

Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who wrote parts of the comprehensive immigration reform bill, posted it on his website for comments, and touted the need for immigration reform at an announcement with the Senate’s gang of eight, has now switched positions.  It had already taken a ton of coaxing to get Rubio to be part of the gang of eight in the first place.  But now, with every policy calculation being connected to 2016, Rubio has decided that he dubious “piecemeal” approach to immigration reform is the right way to move forward.  

Meanwhile, California Republican Jeff Dunham, Florida Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and California Republican David Valadao have signed on to the the big comprehensive immigration reform bill in the House.  The House legislation, offered by Democrats, resembles what the Senate has already passed.  As Rubio runs the other direction, others appear to understand the changing demographics in the U.S. and the growing power of Latino voters.

    He is a traitor..to himself. Rubio is just worried about his own career. Not principles…not courage…not even an understanding of his own roots…ha ha…who wants someone like him leading this country or even a small town?
    I lost all kind of respect for him.
