Rubio to Hannity: Tougher Border Language Needed in Bill

Thursday, 02 May 2013 03:30 PM

Sen. Marco Rubio says a new immigration bill he helped write needs stronger border security provisions or it will fail in the House and may even struggle to pass the Senate.

The Florida Republican is the chief emissary to conservatives on the contentious legislation. He says he's been hearing concerns in recent days that more work is needed to boost the bill's language on the border. He says he's committed to trying to make those changes.

Rubio didn't give specifics in an interview on "The Sean Hannity Show" radio program. But a number of conservatives have complained about "triggers" in the bill that aim to make new citizenship provisions contingent on border security accomplishments. Critics say those provisions are too weak.
