RUBIO VIDEO STATEMENT: We Will Have Immigration Reform If We Can Secure The Border

Jun 11, 2013 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – This afternoon, the Senate voted 84 to 15 in favor of the motion to proceed to the consideration of S.744, “The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.”  U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following video statement after today’s vote.  Rubio’s statement is available on YouTube in both English and Spanish.  For television stations interested in airing today’s statement, a broadcast quality video is also available in both English and Spanish.

RUBIO: WE WILL HAVE IMMIGRATION REFORM IF WE CAN SECURE THE BORDER

“I think today’s vote is a good sign. It shows there’s strong bipartisan support for solving our immigration problem. At the end of the day, I think it’s all going to hinge on whether we can secure the border and have real security measures to ensure that this never happens again in the future. But what this vote today proves is that most of my Republican colleagues are prepared to vote for immigration reform – as long as we can ensure that we don’t have another wave illegal immigration in the future. So I think it’s a good start, we have some work to do still.”

RUBIO: SI ASEGURAMOS LA FRONTERA, TENDREMOS UNA REFORMA MIGRATORIA

“La votación es algo muy positivo. Yo creo que esto enseña que la mayoría de los republicanos están dispuestos y preparados para votar a favor de una reforma migratoria, siempre y cuando nos aseguremos que nunca en el futuro haya otra ola de inmigración ilegal. Yo creo que eso es una pedida muy razonable y muy responsable, y creo que se puede hacer. Así que yo creo que si podemos tomar esas medidas, asegurando que no va a haber otra ola de inmigración ilegal en el futuro, vamos a tener una reforma migratoria este año. Yo creo que hoy fue un primer paso hacia eso”.
