Castro Praises Rubio for Discussing Immigration Reform

Dem. Congressman: 'I applaud Senator Rubio for broaching that subject'


Rep. Joaquin Castro (D., Tex.) praised Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) in an interview on MSNBC Thursday for being willing to tackle the subject of immigration reform, which Rubio discussed in detail Wednesday night on Fox News.

"It's great we have Republicans, especially at the highest levels in the Senate, talking about accomplishing real immigration reform," he said. "I applaud Senator Rubio for broaching that subject, for taking it head on. And I also believe that he made hints about allowing a path to citizenship, particularly for Dreamers, and I think that's absolutely essential."
