5. Conservatives to Rubio: Act on immigration now

The immigration debate comprehensive immigration reform versus just immigration enforcement is a difficult one, even for Miami Republican and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

Rubio has stayed on track with the GOP message about heightening security on the Mexican border, remaining opposed to the DREAM Act and supporting E-Verfiy.

But the Herald says thats not enough for many supporters. Rubios tea party advocates note that immigration is not even posted on his website, saying that he cant have it both ways. The Herald writes that Rubio is being torn in opposite directions by his base: Washingtons Republican elite and Floridas grass-roots activists who propelled him into office.
