Connie Mack: 'Praise' Marco Rubio on Immigration
Former U.S. Rep. Connie Mack has thrown his support behind U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Miami, who has taken flak for a bill he and seven other senators plan to introduce to give the nation set direction on immigration.
"Marco Rubios leadership in helping to craft a comprehensive immigration reform plan deserves the praise of all Republicans, not the condemnation and political attacks of a few, Mack stated in a release.
"No immigration reform plan will be perfect. But Marco and others are leading precisely because President Obama has failed to act. And it is because of Marcos leadership that we just might succeed in enacting immigration reform that protects and promotes the freedom, security and prosperity of our country and that appeals to most political factions.
"At a time when our political differences have made Washington beyond dysfunctional, Marco Rubio should be loudly applauded for standing tall and leading. Its time for other leaders and public figures to follow in his footsteps. Senator Vitters comments attacking Marco Rubio are ill-advised."
