The president of the labor union for immigration agents said Monday morning that Sen. Marco Rubio “directly misled law enforcement officers” after promising to try to boost interior enforcement in his immigration bill.
“Senator Rubio, who promised ICE officers and Sheriffs that he would take steps to repair the bill’s provisions that gut interior enforcement, has abandoned that commitment.

5 Senators Who Support Immigration Bill Don’t Know Answer to Key Question About It
5:31 PM, Jun 25, 2013 • By JOHN MCCORMACK / http://www.weeklystandard.com
Obamacare poses a tricky problem for supporters of the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform bill. It would be too politically toxic to give illegal immigrants amnesty and taxpayer subsidies under Obamacare, so the Senate bill prohibits “registered provisional immigrants” (individuals who are now residing illegally in the United States granted legal status under the bill) from receiving Obamacare subsidies. But in so doing the Senate’s immigration bill would create a big financial incentive for some employers to hire non-citizens granted legal status over American citizens.
On Tuesday afternoon, THE WEEKLY STANDARD asked five different U.S. Senators about this problem. These five senators, all Democrats, voted to cut off debate Monday night on the revised immigration bill, but none of them knew if the bill would create a financial incentive for some employers to hire amnestied immigrants instead of American citizens.
“I don’t know. I’d have to look at it closely,” said Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. “I just haven’t read it that closely to know.”

“Anyone who has committed crimes in this country is going to be deported,” the Arizona Republican declared on the Senate floor last week.
However, as Washington Examiner columnist Byron York recently reported, “the bottom line is an immigrant could have more than three misdemeanor convictions in his background check and still qualify for legalization.” Continue reading
