Rubio Statement on Senate Immigration Proposals

Feb 15, 2018 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. –U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement today after the Senate failed to advance four immigration reform proposals:
 
“Every amendment before the Senate today failed to pass because, as I have said since our effort in 2013, the more an immigration proposal tries to do at once, the less likely it is to succeed.
 
“I voted for Senator Grassley’s plan because it best represented principles I have and continue to support, including provisions to address young people brought illegally to this country through no fault of their own and strengthen border security and enforcement.
 
“I strongly considered supporting the Rounds-Collins plan. But I did not support it because it expanded the population of those eligible for protection to include people not covered by or eligible for DACA without providing sufficient border security and enforcement measures.
 
“In the meantime, I intend to keep working with other Senators on a more limited proposal that would permanently codify DACA’s renewable permits and provide meaningful border security and enforcement measures in the event a House-passed bill cannot pass the Senate and we are left without a broader solution.”
