(THE HILL) — Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Sunday cautioned that reports that a bipartisan group in the Senate was close to a deal on reforming the nation’s immigration laws was “premature.”

“I’m encouraged by reports of an agreement between business groups and unions on the issue of guest workers,” said Rubio in a statement released Sunday. “However, reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature.”

Rubio’s statement came after reports Saturday said business and labor groups had reached a deal on a plan to grant visas to low-skilled guest workers, a key stumbling block in congressional efforts to forge immigration reform.
