Let's take a look at who's talking.
And this morning we're hearing from Florida senator Marco Rubio rubio sitting down with Sean Hannity.
To discuss the senate proposal we told you about yesterday.
And also discussing what he thinks are the necessary steps in the immigration process.
The senator saying there must be enforcement measures before a path to green carts.
I think it's a good moment to remind people that and the country -- the vast majority of conservatives favor legal immigration and we don't have a legal immigration system that works right now.
And our problem with illegal immigration is that -- undermines legal immigration so we have eleven million people that are undocumented and we understand that we have to deal with this issue because.
We have eleven million people that by all accounts are going to be here the rest of their lives where -- without documents but our objection has been in the past.
That we can't do anything to deal with eleven million people that number one is unfair to people who have done at the right way.
Or number two that will encourage illegal immigration and the future and that's why your point is so important and one of the things that I've.
And made a key part of my own personal principles I'm glad they found -- way into these principles and must be a part of any final bill and that -- this.
But before we can move towards a path for green cards to citizenship comes after that it's it's a path to green cards.
Before we move to a path towards green cards.
There has to be enforcement mechanisms that are verified -- in place and it's not just the -- -- -- workplace enforcement because that's the magnet for illegal immigration.
And it's tracking the entry and exit a visitor -- 40%.
Of our illegal immigration are undocumented people in this country entered legally and overstayed their visas and we don't track when people leave so we don't even know who they are -- where they are.
All these things must happen before.
Before there is a path to a green card.
Well senator -- but rubio said this plan offers people the chance to apply for citizenship the way he says they should have.
In the first place.
