Rubio Hints at Government Shutdown Over Immigration

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) says that Republicans will fight unilateral action by President Obama on immigration through the budget process, the Huffington Post reports.

Said Rubio: "There will have to be some sort of a budget vote or a continuing resolution vote, so I assume there will be some sort of a vote on this. I'm interested to see what kinds of ideas my colleagues have about using funding mechanisms to address this issue."

"After Congress returns on Sept. 8, lawmakers will have just 10 working days to come to consensus on a continuing resolution to fund the government or risk a shutdown... Adding immigration to the debate would complicate matters further and potentially trigger a domestic crisis on the eve of the Nov. 4 midterm elections."
