Rubio’s bill is more disturbing than his motives

Senator Marco Rubio has rushed to distance himself from comments made by one of his aides that appear in a recent article on immigration by The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza. Lizza quotes an unnamed Rubio aide as saying: "There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can't cut it. There shouldn't be a presumption that every American worker is a star performer. There are a lot of people who just can't get it, can't do it, don't want to do it. And so you can't obviously discuss that publicly."
