On immigration, Marco Rubio bashes "dysfunctional Congress" in Harry Reid's home paper

As he pushes for an immigration compromise plan, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has also been criticizing Senate leader Harry Reid as of late.

Now the Nevada Democratic boss can read all about Rubio's immigration principles in a new editorial in the Las Vegas Review Journal in which the Republican senator omits Reid's name but takes on the "dysfunctional Congress." Hmmmm, now who's a leader of that institution.....?

Here's Rubio:

As a nation of immigrants, Americans know how important immigration has been throughout our history. It's an indispensable part of our future.

Sadly, our immigration system is broken, and our dysfunctional Congress has been unable to put in place a new legal immigration system that honors our heritage as both a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. To do this, we need to address three key areas.

First, we need a modern legal immigration system with an application and compliance system that relies on new technology to simplify the process of coming and staying here legally.

We need an agricultural workers program that allows us to bring in seasonal and long-term laborers to provide our agricultural industries with the workers they need.
