Rubio Urges Passage Of New Border Security Proposal

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Thursday called for the approval of a new immigration reform amendment he called “a dramatic improvement on border security, unlike anything proposed in the past.”

Rubio stressed the importance of the new measure hammered out by Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND), billed as a more palatable alternative to Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) border security proposal. He argued that if adequate border security and programs like E-verify don’t make it into the language of the bill, then undocumented immigrants may be given permanent residency while the borders remain insecure and those security programs languish.

“If you don’t say that all those things have to happen before permanent legal residency happens,” he said in an appearance on Fox News, “if you don’t say that, then these things may not happen.”
