Senator Marco Rubio: “If you go down the list of things that conservatives have been asking for for the better part of the two years that I’ve been here, we’ve done them all. Is there a way to make E-Verify better? That’s what Senator Portman is working on. Is there a way to improve the entry-exit tracking system? Well, for example, we’ve made it now biometric in the 30 largest international airports in the country where the vast majority of this traffic comes through. On the border security side of it, you know, the mandating of 700 miles of fence is something people have been asking for for a long time, same with doubling the border agents. And, by the way, these things all work together. One of the things that brings people across that border is the jobs. With mandatory E-Verify, finding a job is going to be a lot harder. And last, but not least, something that no one is talking about: one of the things that drives illegal immigration is that legal immigration is broken. If someone can’t get here to work on a farm for six months legally, they come here illegally. There is no incentive to do that anymore if you reform the legal immigration process they we are to create a process that now works.”
