Rubio Dissents from Gang of Eight on Pace of Immigration Reform Passage
So will it be Rubio/Paul or Paul/Rubio in 2016? Either will be great for sure.
Check it out:
Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio has dissented from his fellow “Gang of Eight” members on the issue of how quickly to pass the group’s comprehensive immigration reform legislation, joining many of his Republican colleagues in demanding an less hasty, and more open and transparent, immigration reform debate.
“You have said that ‘delay for delay’s sake’ would be a mistake in this matter, I agree,” Rubio wrote in a letter Saturday to Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Patrick Leahy. “But excessive haste in the pursuit of a lasting solution is perhaps even more dangerous to the goals many of us share.
“We owe it to the American people to get immigration reform right this time, so that future Congresses and future generations do not face the broken system we see today. A rush to legislate, without fully considering all views and input from all senators, would be fatal to the effort of earning the public’s confidence,” Rubio wrote.
