What Will Rubio Do On Immigration Reform?

When Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) "last appeared with a bipartisan group of senators to discuss their plans for a broad overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, he looked optimistic, apple-cheeked -- and slightly nervous," the New York Times reports.

"Given the disdain some conservatives reserve for Republicans who consort publicly with Democrats, he had reason to be."

"The next time Mr. Rubio is likely to appear with his colleagues in the eight-person bipartisan group could be an even bigger moment, when its members officially introduce joint immigration legislation this month. The probable tableau seems ready-made for problems in the 2016 Republican presidential primary fight in which many expect Mr. Rubio to partake: images of Mr. Rubio, smiling and celebrating alongside Democratic senators and maverick Republicans as he claims co-authorship of an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws that many Republicans will reject."
