On Fox News Thursday night, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that letting the thousands of unaccompanied minors stay in the United States would be a “big mistake.”
Rubio acknowledged that it was a “difficult issue” when so many children were crossing the borders illegally, but it was important to remember that there were limits to American immigration.
Rubio also reminded the audience that the United States already allowed a million legal immigrants into the country annually.
“Maybe Mexico or Panama would step up and do their part in terms of doing this,” he said. “But America can’t handle all of this.”
