Rubio discusses 'non amnesty' Dream Act bill

Sen. Marco Rubio on Fox News today noted several times that a Dream Act proposal he's working on does not create a special pathway to citizenship for children of illegal immigrants, another signal he's trying to frame the debate over a tricky issue. At one point the Florida Republican calls it the "non-amnesty" bill.

Rubio also said since his proposal has not yet been released that it would be unfair to push Mitt Romney to support it. "There are questions about my proposal legislation that haven't been answered yet, even for me. We're trying to figure out how many people this would apply to, whether it would cost any money ... ."

The Fox host also asks Rubio to respond to questions about his age and the VP. See vid for his response.
