Marco Rubio votes to move Senate border bill, but vows to oppose it without new reforms

From a press release:

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding his vote to debate the Senate border bill:

“Today, I voted to move to the Senate border bill so that we would have the opportunity to vote on and pass amendments that would achieve real reforms on border security, end the DACA program for new applicants and reform the 2008 law that allows unaccompanied minors who enter the U.S. illegally to be released.

“If these types of reforms are not included in the bill, I will vote to deny the Democrats the 60 votes they will need to pass this bill. Furthermore, as I have previously stated, I will oppose any efforts to add the 2013 Senate bill or the DREAM Act to this legislation. This legislation needs to address the current humanitarian crisis on our southern border, and prevent any future mass migrations.”
