Florida Dem open to Rubio immigration plan

Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson says he's open to Republican Sen. Marco Rubio's plan to let young illegal immigrants remain in the United States but sees problems with the still-evolving legislation.

Nelson spoke to about three dozen students at the University of South Florida on Thursday about student loans, the environment and immigration. The Florida senator is a co-sponsor of the DREAM Act, which grants a path to citizenship to young illegal immigrations who attend college or serve in the military.

Rubio is crafting a bill that would permit young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. with their parents to apply for non-immigrant visas. They would be allowed to stay to study or work, but they would not have a special path to citizenship.
