Presente.org Statement on Sen. Rubio's Sunday Show Appearances

April 15, 2013

Presente.org is dismayed at the statements on Sunday talk shows by Senator Marco Rubio regarding upcoming comprehensive immigration reform legislation.

"Sen. Rubio has clearly run afoul of what Latino and other voters are demanding which is real reform," said Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org. "Sen. Rubio's extreme and negative message with regard to the pathway to citizenship, his emphasis on "border security," and other aspects of immigration reform we didn't ask for, is matched only by the mean-spirited way he delivers this extreme and negative message."
