Rubio: Immigration bill can’t pass House

An amazing admission, via Politico:

Sen. Marco Rubio acknowledged Tuesday on a conservative radio talk show that  the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive immigration reform bill won’t likely pass the  Republican-led House.

The comments from Rubio, perhaps the most influential congressional  Republican on immigration, illustrate the challenges facing the prospects for  reform after months of private negotiations by a bipartisan coalition of  senators produced a wide-ranging, 844-page bill.

“The bill that’s in place right now probably can’t pass the  House,” Rubio told Mike Gallagher, a nationally syndicated talk show host. “It will  have to be adjusted, because people are very suspicious about the willingness of  the government to enforce the laws now.”

He continued: “That is a very legitimate suspicion, it’s one that I share,  and if there’s anything we can do to make [the bill] even tighter … that’s  exactly what we should be working on.”

Fine and dandy. Now how about you stop trying to help the Democrat Party rush it through the Senate.

    How about you quit writing bills that are so long and convoluted that no body has a chance to read or understand them. Build the DAMN fence first!!!

    So I guess he’s pushing the bill so that he can say he worked on it and tried to pass a bill and he will campaign on that? Is this one of those when opportunity knocks moments? Strange things happening in Washington as the players try to deceive the public. Cruz already let the cat out of the bag that Obama knows the bill won’t pass in the House. He’s just looking for a campaign issue. Deceivers!

    Correct Doug, Rubio should bow out of the Eight and acknowledge there is no sense in doing a compromise bill, if the WH can’t guarantee the border being 100% secured. If they give you the line that that is not possible, don’t believe it. There are no illegals coming through the Federally own lands in New Mexico. No Americans for that matter either.
