Immigration reform hinges on Rubio proposals for border security
Check it out:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is the make-or-break player for immigration reform as the Senate on Tuesday begins voting to overhaul what is widely viewed as a broken system.
Confidence among Democrats that the 1,000-page bill will pass the upper chamber was shaken last week when Rubio said he would not vote for it without changes to border security language — even though he negotiated the original draft.
Rubio and other Republicans say the bill will pass or fail depending on whether Democrats agree to amendments to strengthen border security and other enforcement provisions.
