WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) – Sen. Marco Rubio has some serious doubts as to whether the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill will hold up in the House or the Senate.
With the bill lacking in language that puts more of an emphasis on border security, Rubio believes that the bill, which is predicted not to pass in the Republican-controlled House, will have a difficult time passing in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
“The part we still have to do some work on is this border stuff,” Rubio, R-Fla., said on Sean Hannity’s program on Wednesday. “As I said in an another interview yesterday, this bill will not pass the House and, quite frankly, may struggle to pass the Senate, if it doesn’t deal with that issue. So we’ve got some work to do. And, clearly, what we have in there now is not good enough for too many people and so we’ve got to make it better and that’s what I’m asking for and that’s what we’re working on.”
