Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush Fight Over Who Flip-Flopped More On Immigration
Huffington Post | Jan 28, 2016
Neither Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) nor former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush can truthfully claim they’ve been fully consistent on how to deal with undocumented immigrants. At Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, they took a different tack — sniping back and forth in a way that laid bare that they’d both changed the way they talk about a path to citizenship.
Bush said he had laid out his own immigration plan for legal status in his book, during an attack on Rubio for backing away from his reform bill.
That gave Rubio an opening to hit back.
“That is the book where you changed your position on immigration,” Rubio said. “Because you used to support a path to citizenship.”
“So did you,” Bush retorted. “So did you, Marco.”
