DNC Statement on Sen. Rubio Endorsing Mitt Romney

DNC Senior Advisor for Hispanic Affairs Juan Sepúlveda released the following statement after Senator Marco Rubio endorsed Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential race:

"On the same day that he proposed denying young adults who were brought to the U.S. as children, through no fault of their own, an earned path to citizenship after serving in the armed forces or pursuing higher education, Senator Rubio joined proponents of controversial anti-immigrant policies like Kris Kobach and Governor Jan Brewer in endorsing Mitt Romney. Rubio's support for Romney underscores what we already knew: Mitt Romney would have the most extreme immigration platform of any presidential nominee in recent history."
