The Florida senator talked immigration reform for the first time in weeks.

Marco Rubio has been pretty quiet about immigration reform lately, but he was asked about it at Google today and he gave a five minute answer. According to Politico, Rubio, when asked if legalization of the undocumented would help the economy, said:

“That’s just a fundamental decision the country will have to make. If the country decides they are prepared to incorporate 8 or 9 million people that violated our laws, the next question will be: ‘Are you prepared to have 8 or 9 million people living among you that can live here permanently for the rest of their lives but never become citizens?’ Rubio said in his five-minute long answer of continued disagreement between the House and Senate on immigration reform.

Of his own views, he added: “I don’t think it’s good for the country to have people that are forever permanently barred, who are legally here at this point but are permanently barred as citizens.”
