RUBIO: Well, first of all, I've always supported the incremental approach, it was my preferred approach, it's not the direction the Senate wanted to go, but if it was up to only me, that's the direction we would have gone. Because I think you get a better product as a result of that.
What you've outlined is complicated. Because, the problem is that, if you're going to legalize people but you're never going to allow them to ever access citizenship, even 20 or 30 years from now. The problem with that is you've just replaced one immigration issue with another immigration issue.
In the long term, I think that position remains unattainable, un-maintainable. I think you're just going to trigger a whole new debate on immigration reform all over again. My preference would be to deal with this issue in a way that actually not just has border security, but 40 percent of our illegal immigration are people that are overstaying their visas. You have to have a system to track them. And just today, we saw a report that there's a million people here from abroad, we don't know where they are.
HANNITY: We don't know where they are.
RUBIO: That's got to be improved. So, we got to do it all.
HANNITY: All right. Senator, good to see you. Thanks for being with us.
RUBIO: Thank you, Sean.
