Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) apologized to Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity on his nationally-syndicated radio program on Wednesday after being caught telling different things to Spanish and English audiences about the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.

According to the Washington Examiner’s Byron York, Rubio told Hannity that he “probably should have been more artful in the use of terms” when he claimed on Univision to a Spanish-speaking audience that the bill first legalizes America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants, then provides for increased border security after.

“Let’s be clear, nobody is talking about preventing the legalization,” Rubio said on Univision on Sunday. “The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: first comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence.”

Rubio went on to say during that Univision interview that such “legalization” measures in this bill are “not conditional.”
