Rush Limbaugh: “I understand your objectives, and they're really admirable, and I totally wish you all the luck and all the best with it. We need people like you fighting for these kind of things. There's no question. But you said something earlier at the top of the interview that the immigration system is broken, there are 11 million people, whatever, we don't know who they are, and we've gotta fix it. Why? What is it about right now that says, forget everything else fails I've asked you, forget the political ramifications I've asked you about. Why does it need to be fixed right now?”
Senator Marco Rubio: “First of all, a couple things. If it was up to me, if I controlled the flow of business in the Senate we would be focused on tax reform and how to get our economy growing again and how to get the debt under control. But the reality is the Democrats are gonna raise the issue of immigration. So if they're going to raise this issue and force us to address it, then we have to have an alternative.”
Limbaugh: “Senator Marco Rubio, Florida, really, as always, appreciate your time.”
Rubio: “No, Rush, thanks for having me.”
Limbaugh: “You bet. I appreciate your straightforwardness, a straight shooter.”
