The immigration debate has lulled as Congress members return home for the August recess, but this week Senator Marco Rubio issued a strong warning to House Republicans: Fix the immigration system soon, or the Obama White House will.
In an interview with Tallahassee radio host Preston Scott, Rubio said:
“I believe that this president will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, he will be tempted to issue an executive order like he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen. Now, we won’t get an E-Verify, we won’t get any border security. But he’ll legalize them.”
