How has Sen. Marco Rubio voted on immigration issues before becoming a presidential candidate?

(Feb. 17, 2016) — Look at the official record.  There are many votes where Rubio may say one thing, yet his official voting record may be the opposite.

This 1st vote shown was before Ted Cruz became a member of the Senate.  October 6, 2011, Vote 157:  Sen. Rubio voted with Sen. Harry Reid’s S. 1619  “Decision of the Chair (Shall the Decision of the Chair Stand as the Judgment of the Senate).  This was Sen. Reid’s decision on a ‘Nuclear Vote’ rather than requiring a 60-vote majority to proceed with any action. http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=112&session=1&vote=00157

The following represents opposite votes between Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio on critical issues.

January 29, 2013, Vote Number 5: Sen. Rubio voted ‘YEA’ PN42 On the Nomination (Confirmation John Forbes Kerry, of Massachusetts, to be Secretary of State)

A bill to provide for comprehensive immigration reform and for other purposes.” http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=113&session=1&vote=00168

On the entire Senate voting record, you ‘will not’ find one vote where Sen. Ted Cruz voted for ‘illegal’ immigration or ‘Amnesty.’
