Rubio's Grandfather Ordered Deported

A forthcoming biography of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) says that Rubio's Cuban-born maternal grandfather "was ordered deported from Florida because he flew in from Cuba without a visa, a decade before Rubio's birth," Politico reports.

The book says the grandfather "did not leave the U.S. as ordered, but remained in Miami, possibly on retroactive refugee status."

"The episode could draw renewed scrutiny of the personal narrative of Rubio, a possible running mate for Republican nominee Mitt Romney."

The Rise of Marco Rubio by Manuel Roig-Franzia will be out June 19.
