Rubio’s Big Labor Immigration Problem



rubio When Senator Marco Rubio spearheaded his bipartisan immigration reform “Gang of 8” in the Senate earlier this year, conservatives took pause with the principles the group offered, saying that the “statement of principles” was nothing less than amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States.

It was inevitable that a skirmish would break out between opposing sides within the labor lobby once Senators sat down to hammer out the particulars of a comprehensive immigration reform bill.  As the Senate is trying to “sketch out a deal” for the bill prior to going on a two-week break, union officials have done what they do best- thrown a monkey wrench into the negotiations.
