Marco Rubio just can’t seem to give a straight answer on whether he would deport undocumented immigrants. During a recent appearance on CBS This Morning, Rubio was asked if he would deport the 4 million immigrants who would be saved by DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans). Here’s what went down.
CBS This Morning anchor Norah O’Donnell asked Rubio a direct question about immigration.
Short, sweet, and to the point. Would you deport the immigrant parents of legal U.S. residents.
Rubio spoke around the question than used his immigration catch phrase.
Except your abuelo, who did immigrate to the U.S. illegally in the late 1950s, right? When asked to clarify, Rubio said, “My position on this is not confusing.”
Mr. Rubio, the question was: Would you deport 4 million people?

In 2013, he was in the Gang of Eight who pushed very hard for a bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill.

He has since spent his time distancing himself from the same bill, which would have provided a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in the US.
