Rubio: Law-abiding undocumented immigrants could stay
01/17/16 09:05 AM EST

Sen. Marco Rubio says people who immigrated to the U.S. illegally but haven't committed any major crimes could be allowed to stay.
In an interview airing Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," the Florida Republican contender for the presidency said felons shouldn't be allowed to stay, but those who commit lesser crimes could still qualify. He didn't specify if the people allowed to stay would ever be able to become citizens.


Trump must be highfiving himself in the mirror.

He could just keep saying "parking tickets" and ask if you will break up a family over a parking ticket.

This almost looks like a GE move.

He will say anything at any time he believes it may be to his advantage. This is a man who has changed religion at least four times now - from Catholic to Mormon back to Catholic and now 'whatever the voters approve of'.
