Immigration continues to complicate things for Marco Rubio



Immigration continues to hover over Marco Rubio, providing room for critics on both sides and forcing the Florida Republican to play up a harder line.

On Fox News yesterday, Rubio effectively said as president he wouldn't even support his Gang of 8 bill. A day earlier, also on Fox, Rubio said as president he would ensure that no one enters the U.S. unless we know "100 percent" about them. He has attempted to explain his views in the context of ISIS, saying threats against the U.S. have only grown.

The many layers to Rubio's position this week saw an attack ad from Jeb Bush's super PAC and now this video from a super PAC supporting Ted Cruz.
