Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Senator Marco Rubio was for immigration reform before he was against it. Sunday, Senator Rubio submarined the bill he helped author on immigration reform by saying a comprehensive overhaul is not possible.
The prospects for comprehensive immigration reform passing both the Democratically-led Senate and the Republican-led House of Representatives continue to shrink with each passing day.
In political terms, it was the equivalent of seeing a poltergeist. It couldn’t be real, but there it was: ultra-conservative Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio standing side-by-side with super liberal Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer in Washington Monday, advancing a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform plan.
