Marco Rubio Rejects Pathway To Citizenship
If elected president, Marco Rubio would not pursue a pathway to citizenship for the 11.2 million immigrants in the country illegally, reports Bloomberg’s Sahil Kapur. On Monday night, the Florida Senator gave Fox News gave commentator Sean Hannity additional details about his immigration views, which have changed since 2013 when he participated in the Gang of 8, a bipartisan group that produced a comprehensive immigration reform bill. His view since he announced his campaign is that a successful immigration bill can’t be comprehensive and must start with border security.
“The first two things you have to do is stop illegal immigration, then second you have to modernize our legal immigration system, and then third you can have a debate about how to even legalize people to begin with,” Rubio told Hannity.
