Marco Rubio’s flip-flop on immigration is one of the worst I have ever seen, be it from a presidential candidate or member of Congress.
On June 27, 2013, Rubio voted for a sweeping immigration-reform bill that would clear the way for millions of undocumented residents to have a chance at citizenship, attract workers from all over the world and provide for significant improvements to border security.
Not only did Rubio vote for comprehensive immigration reform that included an amnesty provision, he was part of the bipartisan “Gang of 8” senators that wrote the bill and privately negotiated its terms.
This included Sens. Charles Schumer, John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

Now that he is running for president, Rubio no longer supports the legislation. South Florida is a community enriched by immigrants, it is part of our fabric.
Rubio’s flip-flop shows he’ll do anything to get elected.
