Marco Rubio Rejects Obama Immigration Reform Plan: 'Dead On Arrival'
“It’s a mistake for the White House to draft immigration legislation without seeking input from Republican members of Congress," the statement begins, before going on to call the bill "half-baked and seriously flawed" and declaring that "if actually proposed, the President’s bill would be dead on arrival in Congress."
Specifically, Rubio's statement criticizes the Obama bill for not being tough enough on border security and for failing to reward "those who chose to do things the right way and come here legally" over "those who broke our immigration laws."
Until recently, Rubio has not shown much interest in immigration reform. But in the last few months he has cast himself as a leader on the issue, seen as a crucial one for Republicans after their poor showing with Latinos in the 2012 elections. He has won over many conservatives with his own plan, which calls for tighter border and workplace security measures, as well as a long path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

svivar9087:Every interview I've seen with those who knew Markito, back in the day, always say "he always did what he was told"....my point is that Markito needs to "bust a move" think & speak 4 himself .
Until then the only message Markito conveys is.... I'm Thirsty !
