Rubio’s Florida offices draw tea party protests over immigration bill

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is pushing immigration reform, and some in the tea party aren't happy about it.

Several dozen tea party members demonstrated outside some of Rubio’s Florida offices on Tuesday to protest the comprehensive immigration bill that Rubio and seven Senate colleagues announced this week, which includes a path to citizenship for up to 11 million immigrants in the country illegally.
