Marco Rubio should have been better vetted before he ran for the presidency.
Dick Durbin dropped a comment about his Gang of Eight cohort Marco Rubio, and while he has a political motivation, it does fit with Rubio’s amnesty plan for the United States.
Democrat Dick Durbin, also a member of the Gang of Eight, said during a hearing on H1-B visas on Thursday that “a junior senator from Florida” fought to kill visa changes in the legislation that would have limited the ability of firms to replace American workers with cheaper foreign labor.
“In 2013, I was part of the Gang of Eight. Democrats and Republicans sat down and wrote, kind of, the comprehensive immigration reform. One member of the Gang of Eight, a junior senator from Florida, fought hard to keep H-1B reforms out of the bill. Nonetheless, we made several important changes in the program,” said Durbin.
Durbin has tried to require American workers be hired first and he attempted to keep the previous reforms to the H-1B visa program along with Senators Grassley and Sessions.
Rubio hit Donald Trump for hiring foreign workers during last week’s debate and continues to hammer him. He also also defends his support of H-1B visas but the defense is weak.

This is the effect of the H-1B visa program.
Another interesting issue raised by Mark Kerkorian is the one about Fox News Working to cover up for Rubio’s amnesty bill. They’ve made no bones about preferring him as the presidential candidate.
Wow: Schumer & Rubio met w/ Murdoch & Ailes, who agreed to mute Fox's criticism of Gang of 8 amnesty bill: https://t.co/vBNoXsoHwY
