(DAILY CALLER) While serving as a city commissioner in West Miami, Marco Rubio voted in favor of a city resolution urging the federal government to give Honduran illegal immigrants permanent resident status and free them from risk of deportation, according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller.
The 1998 city resolution, #98-16, is titled “Resolution of the City of West Miami urging the federal government and Immigration and Naturalization Service to accord same status to Hondurans as has been afforded to Nicaraguans.”
In the year prior, the “Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act” was enacted into law. This allowed for Nicaraguan, Cuban, Salvadorian, Guatemalan and former Soviet bloc migrants who had applied for asylum to receive permanent resident status and a stay of removal.
