Sen. Marco Rubio Explains His Support for “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” to a Skeptical Rush Limbaugh – Audio 1/29/13
Here is audio of Sen. Marco Rubio being interviewed today on the Rush Limbaugh radio show. Rush talked to Rubio about the new “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” Plan Rubio has signed onto with seven other Senators, including John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Lindsey Graham, Dick Durbin, and Bob Menendez. Rubio explained that the plan to eventually allow a path to citizenship for those already here illegally hinges on the enforcement aspects of the plan – securing the border and tracking those who come into the country on tourist or short-stay visas to make sure they also leave the country at the required time. Rubio said he will not support any bill that does not have those enforcement mechanisms built in.
Rush praised Rubio for trying to tackle such a tough issue, but it was clear that Rush is very skeptical that President Obama or the Democrats in Congress can be trusted to actually do what they say.
