Rubio Immigration Stance Draws More Attention

“A Latin singing duo had just finished warming up the crowd for Senator Marco Rubio on Sunday here when he looked out from the stage and asked if he might offer a few words in Spanish,” the New York Times wrote.

“His presidential campaign had taken him far from home lately, to New Hampshire, Iowa and South Carolina, he said, racing through his words with the fluency of a native speaker. He was glad to be back.”

Supreme Court to Decide Soon on Whether to Hear Obama Amnesty Appela

“The Supreme Court could announce as early as Friday if it will be taking up President Obama’s appeal to save his executive action on immigration, according to a Reuters report,” The Hill says.

“With the indictment last week of two Iraqi refugees who allegedly conspired with ISIS, a number of lawmakers are now warning that poor screening methods and an administration plan to boost immigration will endanger national security.”

Florida Bills Would Stop Sanctuary Cities, Improve Enforcement

“Hundreds of people from around Florida arrived at the Capitol this week to protest several measures they say discriminate against immigrants who make up the backbone of the state’s tourism and agricultural industries,” TBO.com reports.

“The bills, which create tougher deportation penalties, prohibit cities from creating sanctuaries for immigrants and require local law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration officials to round up undocumented workers, were filed in response to a perceived failure of the federal government to enforce immigration laws.”
