For Undocumented Youth, Rubio’s Actions Will Speak Louder Than Words

April 20, 2012

Washington, D.C. — In media interviews Thursday, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., continued to tout his proposed alternative to the DREAM Act, which would help address the undocumented youth whom the DREAM Act was designed to assist. The following is a statement by Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum.

“We welcome the renewed focus on immigration reform. It is clear both parties have realized fixing the immigration system is good policy and good politics.

“It’s good to see Senator Rubio talking to the press about his ideas on reform. But, the time is near for Senator Rubio to introduce legislative language and define a path forward that secures necessary Republican votes.”
