Immigration Reform 2015: Marco Rubio trying to take credit for something that he didn’t do
Immigration reform is not a strong point of Republicans. But Marco Rubio believes he should take credit for something that was actually torpedoed by none other than the same political party he belongs to.
Now Sen. Marco Rubio is claiming that he has done a lot more than many Democrat leaders can actually claim and went on to add that his contribution to immigration was far more than Hillary Clinton, the top Democrat hopeful for 2016 presidential elections
The Republican presidential hopeful from Florida while talking about it said, â€œI mean, I helped pass an immigration bill in a Senate dominated by Democrats. And thatâ€™s more than sheâ€™s ever done. Sheâ€™s given speeches on it, but sheâ€™s never done anything on it. So I have a record of trying to do something on itâ€.
It is amazing that while he tried to count his support for the immigration reform bill in the year 2013, he didnâ€™t speak a single word on how his party has killed the bill. Republicans have opposed the bill on every occasion despite claiming two years ago that they will eventually pass a slightly changed immigration bill. But they have shamelessly broken each and every promise that they made.
And to be true, he didnâ€™t completely back it as he later walked away from it. Now he says that the immigration reform bill push didnâ€™t work because the issue of illegal immigration was not sufficiently addressed and that he warned about that through the process.
Now he says that the immigration was still necessary. â€œI just donâ€™t think you can do it in a comprehensive, massive piece of legislation, given the lack of trust that there is today in the federal governmentâ€¦I honestly believe that the key to moving forward on immigration is to first and foremost prove to the American people that we are going to bring future illegal immigration under control â€” that if we legalize 12 million people, they wonâ€™t be replaced by 12 million more who are here illegallyâ€¦And I honestly believe, given my experiences on this issue now, that if we did that, the American people and the majority of Republicans and conservatives will be very reasonable and, and responsible about how we address the reality that we have 12 million human beings living in this country illegally.â€
