This week I think that.
With Florida senator and GOP rising star everybody's talking about him for the VP not.
Marco Rubio for -- Fox News Latino dot com exclusive.
We cover a lot of ground starting of course with the big ticket immigration.
Where do you stand on immigration reform given that your party has become.
Viewed as antagonistic.
To helping people create a pathway to citizen I think well.
That the first thing I think the party needs to -- -- what I hope to help -- become once again as the pro illegal immigration party.
We have a broken legal immigration system I believe that if we modernize our legal immigration system if we create a guest worker program and we and to continue to improve -- security.
That then it won't -- be easy.
But it will be easier to deal with the issue of those that are in this country illegally and so this -- DC and to answer your question -- the -- interview.
Was largely about immigration because it's such a big issue and right I -- -- this week.
In which rubio endorsed Mitt Romney and which Jeb Bush endorsed Mitt Romney and also said that he would like this -- Marco Rubio on the ticket Marco Rubio is -- could not be hotter here's what he said about the vice presidential bid.
Are holding to this line you will not accept it I'm not gonna be -- -- for a lot because I'm focused on my job and senate and that's from my mind -- that's from my heart and what they thought what I wanted to be -- -- it's the difference between winning and losing long road out and that's a first of all -- always these hypothetical questions are dangerous and it isn't going to be the -- it's in winning or losing.
You know -- I was a presidential race on the vice presidential pick.
You win or lose on the competing visions for the future of our country.
So I'm what do you think -- I think he would jump he -- he should and he would not only would he like to do it he should do for the party's sake.
I have a hunch that -- Ronnie would be Smart to pick him as is his running mate because it's it would be either a rubio or -- the Chris is great he's always going to be advisories what is going to be friend of brownie but.
Rubio brings of but did the Latino vote -- we know the Republicans are really struggling with the Latino vote I think one of our poll showed us.
Some are up 14%.
Approval rating amongst Latinos I think that's -- Romney right now for -- anybody Romney vs Obama.
I think it's 14% Latino vote right in and that it would have actually bring that number up I think more importantly than any other group independents went -- -- he needs to.
Really from ability -- I think -- get -- that the difficulty is that if you look at Mitt Romney's positions on things like the DREAM Act immigration reform even Sonia Sotomayor being on the court.
He's taken a hard line he's just it's just been very difficult I think for Hispanics to warm up and I that they are part for me -- If you look at Hispanics in terms of their attitudes towards America.
-- towards entrepreneur or -- you know towards religion family they should be easy Pickens.
And they will be that's a thing that is the middle and that's what's gonna continue to happen as they prospered if we get some jobs going any time around here waiting.
You know they're gonna gravitate towards a conservative movement towards Republicans -- -- say this isn't a candidate but like trivia what can we are saying that they eat.
The Republican attitude towards -- has not been welcome.
Well -- they can do a better job in terms about reach but again when you're dealing with core values it's not going to be a hard -- for them to say that we wanna.
Favor a hard working -- -- free market conservative values religion family all of that this is a natural fit and yes if the messages translated they will come build that they I -- I actually agree with you on this one and I do think Romney has front of the right on immigration and Newt Gingrich had.
A position that was more flexible that I -- with and I do think the Republicans are split on this I do think they cede ground to the Democrats on this George Bush -- did an excellent job.
With Latino but you're right the social issues resonate with Latinos the number one issue issue among Latinos is the -- jobs in the economy it's not immigration but on immigration Republicans are the pro legal immigration party they should be rubio said it.
Why they don't embrace that.
I don't know because they seem -- -- they seem isolationists and I think that puts a lot of immigrants off when actually.
They're not but more -- branding rights of failure in the message to translated to connect with the natural base it's inclined to support you and it's a real missed opportunity I agree with -- and encourage that it's -- to be continue to be better with people like rubio grand.
Well it's gonna say god Mitt Romney is definitely gonna pick Marco Rubio because it has saved they're gonna save on moderate -- bathrooms at the but it was a legitimate fear that they're gonna leave they're gonna go away from Republicans because that's exploited by the Democrats to keep hitting the Republicans.
Yes people who are gonna load you know Hispanics in the cattle cars.
If they have a Spanish accent we did and there's -- -- -- imagine that you can Arizona why would you have that fear.
I anyway we gotta go but I hit it -- watch more of my interview -- -- that rubio live on the Fox News that the you know dot com coming.
Rush Limbaugh -- that the media -- gonna tackle on him and it failed him and absolutely gone nowhere and rush we'll tell us why when we come back on the spot.
