Rubio Endorses Triggers in SOTU Response

Rate this Entry

Surprisingly, Senator Marco Rubio devoted just three sentences to immigration reform in his Republican response to the State of the Union Address. Here's the text:

We can also help our economy grow if we have a legal immigration system
that allows us to attract and assimilate the world's best and brightest.
We need a responsible, permanent solution to the problem of those who
are here illegally. But first, we must follow through on the broken
promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws.

How to interpret these words? First, he endorses skilled worker immigration improvements. No surprise there as he's made this a major issue for advocacy. He next calls for a "responsible, permanent solution" regarding illegally present immigrants. Pretty wishy-washy. Could be a path to citizenship. Could be permanent second class status. And he indicates that certifyng border security must happen before people can proceed to that permanent solution.

I guess he's speaking for the GOP and can't commit in this particular speech to too much, but still. He's hardly helping his party improve his image with Latino voters here.
