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.
