VIDEO: Rubio Comments on White House School Safety Meeting

Feb 28, 2018 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) commented, in both English and Spanish, on today’s bipartisan meeting on school and community safety at the White House.
A transcript of Rubio’s remarks in English and Spanish can be found below.  A high-quality version is available in English and Spanish.
RUBIO: The meeting at the White House today was important. We’re beginning the process this week of understanding what we can get done quickly and what’s going to require more time. Tomorrow, we’re going to announce Stop School Violence Act, which we’ve been working on for some time with Senator Hatch and the Newtown Promise families to try to get that moving forward. It actually would provide not just millions of dollars for school safety but also create all sorts of things that could have prevented the attack in Parkland and prevent future attacks from happening.
And we’re going to move on from there. We’re studying gun violence restraining orders. We’re going to file something on that. We’re trying to get the background check laws fixed and we’re working on that. Hopefully we can get quick action. So there’s a lot of work to do. But today I think we saw what I hope would be the beginning of a bipartisan effort to solve problems – not just attack one another. And that’s what I hope will continue.  
RUBIO: La reunión hoy en la Casa Blanca fue importante. Hemos pasado esta semana trabajando con nuestros colegas en ambos partidos para buscar soluciones que se puedan lograr este año y mañana vamos a presentar una [propuesta de] ley que [trata de prevenir] los ataques en las escuelas, más dinero para seguridad y entrenamiento, y también para prevenir e identificar a estas personas que son peligrosas antes que ataquen. También estamos trabajando sobre una seria otra propuesta para ayudar al sistema de chequeo de antecedentes. Creo que podemos lograr eso a corto plazo. Pero hoy fue un importante paso. Reunimos Republicanos y Demócratas de la Cámara y del Senado y si Dios quiere, esto se va convertir como un esfuerzo bipartidista, no una pelea política para las elecciones. Para poder lograr algo, para que de esta tragedia, haya progreso.
