Washington, DC - The following statement was issued today by Chris Crane, National ICE Council President:

Senator Rubio was asked during a recent interview that “if you don’t get enforcement first, or securing the borders first, is that a deal killer for you?” And he replied, “Absolutely… Because we will be right back here again.” But the outline from the Gang of 8 offers legalization, or amnesty, before enforcement is accomplished. Senator Schumer admitted as much: “we’ve come to a basic agreement, which is that first, people will be legalized… Then, we will make sure the border is secure.” I would then respectfully call on Senator Rubio to follow through on his commitment to the American people—and his pledge to accomplish enforcement before legalization—and to leave the Gang of 8.
