Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is pushing back on a report in Politico suggesting that a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants would be a windfall for the Democratic Party.

The story suggests immigration reform could "cripple Republican prospects in many states they now win easily." Assuming all 11 million illegal immigrants could vote and that 71 percent supported President Obama in 2012 (his share of the Hispanic vote last fall) the article says that he would have significantly narrowed the GOP's margin in Arizona, Georgia and Texas.
