I've found it curious that Marco Rubio took a dig at the President when he introduced his plan when it looks pretty similar to what we're told the White House is planning to promote in Congress. I'm guessing it might have to do with a little election in 2016. But even if the President doesn't get kind words from Rubio, he's acting like he's feelin' the love.
The Obama administration suggested Tuesday that there are signs that bipartisan cooperation might be possible on immigration reform, in light of some new ideas being championed by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.).
White House press secretary Jay Carney said that Rubio’s proposals to offer more visas to highly skilled tech workers and potentially provide legal status and citizenship to many of the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants “bode well for a productive, bipartisan debate.”
“We hope that it signals a change in the Republican approach to this issue,” Carney said during his daily briefing, “because if we are going to get this done, it’s going to take more than just a handful of Republicans working across the aisle.”
