Rubio hit hard after inviting comments on immigration bill

in Uncategorized by

Byron York notes Senator Marco Rubio invited people to help improve the bipartisan immigration bill he introduced by making comments on his website.

“Rubio’s staff is reviewing each one — a wise move, given the emotions that the immigration issue can involve and the tendency of some people to say nasty things on the Internet. But even after screening for foul language and general content, the suggestions Rubio has so far received are remarkably negative. Actually, they are overwhelmingly, crushingly negative, criticizing a wide spectrum of issues included in the Gang of Eight bill. The commenters Rubio has invited to speak really, really, really don’t like what he has done.”
