Daylight between Jeb and Rubio on immigration

Former Gov. Jeb Bush is among a group of business, government and religious leaders scheduled to call tomorrow for immigration reform.

"As tens of thousands of activists plan to march for immigration reform on May 1st, conservative leaders will discuss work that conservatives can engage in to increase pressure on the President and key Republicans in the Senate to move on immigration reform now,'' says the press release from Conservatives for Comprehensive Immigration Reform "Conservative leaders will provide an update on the fallout from last week's passage of Arizona's divisive immigration law and pray for a solution to the moral, economic and political crisis caused by our broken immigration system."

Bush supported the legislation under his brother's administration that would have allowed illegal immigrants to earn citizenship. His all-but-endorsed U.S. Senate candidate, former House Speaker Marco Rubio, has said he did not support the bill. "My hope is that Obama administration does not use the Arizona law as an excuse to ram through amnesty or something that would make it impossible for us to have a legal immigation system that works,'' he said today.
