Rubio: I’m ‘Realistic on Immigration’
National Review Online | March 31, 2015
Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) continued to hint at making a presidential announcement in the coming weeks when he stopped by The Five on Monday, and addressed the issue that some think may be his biggest hurdle in a Republican primary: Immigration. Co-host Greg Gutfeld asked Rubio, who was a member of the moderate Gang of Eight that devised comprehensive immigration reform legislation in the Senate, how he responds to criticism that he is “soft” on the issue. “I think I’m realistic on immigration,” he said. He noted that the current immigration system is still in need of reforms, but was careful to emphasize that grand approaches, such as the Gang of Eight bill or the president’s recent executive action, are not the answer.
