Orlando, F.L. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement today after the White House released its immigration framework:
"It is encouraging to see the President embrace some of the ideas I have long supported. I look forward to reviewing the specific legislative text once it is presented.
Our primary goal should be to send to the President, before March 5th, a bill that secures our border and that addresses the plight of the current beneficiaries of DACA in a responsible way. The reaction, from both sides, to the President's outline is a reminder that the more an immigration bill tries to do, the harder it is to pass. With only five weeks to go before DACA expires, if an agreement can't be reached on a broader bill, Congress should at least address the most immediate problems. We cannot allow unrealistic and unreasonable expectations to lead us down a path of failure."
