And we thought amnesty was the big stumbling block.
Senator Marco Rubio appeared on FOX News Sunday today and was asked some tough questions by host Chris Wallace with regard to the border and immigration.
While Rubio clearly articulated a three point plan to deal with the problems, he pointed out that the biggest obstacle at the moment is the president.

Marco Rubio: Obama is the ‘greatest impediment’ to immigration reform
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., predicted Sunday that President Obama’s expected executive actions to address millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally would deal a major blow to legislative hopes for comprehensive immigration reform.
“That would be one step forward but three steps back,” Rubio, an immigration reform supporter, said on “Fox News Sunday,” calling the threat of executive action the “single greatest impediment to moving forward.”
Obama is expected to reveal his long-awaited unilateral actions around Labor Day. The White House is weighing whether to expand a previous order that deferred the deportations of younger illegal immigrants to millions of other people living in the U.S. illegally.
