Appearing Sunday on ABC's This Week, Florida Senator Marco Rubio dodged a direct question about whether he'll vote for his Gang of Eight legislation. At the moment, the illegal immigration overhaul does practically nothing to secure the southern border with Mexico in a real and tangible way.
KARL: If it stays the way it is on border security, do you vote for it?
RUBIO: I don’t want to get involved in the hypotheticals and ultimatums.
KARL: It’s a real possibility.
RUBIO: No, I don’t think it is. A bill without increased border security which everyone has now conceded needs to happen. The debate is about what that border security provision looks like. If we do that, the bill will have strong, bipartisan support. If we fail, we will keep trying. The only way to pass the immigration reform law out of the House and Senate so the president can sign it is if has real border security measures.
