Full Interview:

Senator Marco Rubio: “I think now is the time to act on this issue and get it solved, because we can’t leave it the way it is. The status quo is just as bad, and so we’ve got to figure that out. And so certainly, I think as we move forward now on to the floor of the Senate, in order for this thing to pass. One thing is to have a bill, another thing is to have a law, a law that can pass the House and the Senate. There will have to be changes made to this bill, and particularly because people are saying the following to us. Here’s what people are saying – a lot of conservatives: ‘We are prepared to deal with the 11 million that are here now, because we know that they’re never going to go back, the vast majority of them. We’re prepared to deal with that, but only if we take measures that ensure that we don’t have a future wave of illegal immigration.’ I think that’s a very reasonable request, a very reasonable position, and one that I think we need to be able to accomplish if we want this to become a law.”
