Sen. Marco Rubio said Saturday that President Barack Obama's immigration plan will be "dead on arrival" on Capitol Hill if it looks like the proposal reported by USA Today.

“If actually proposed, the president’s bill would be dead on arrival in Congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come," said Rubio, who's seen as a key figure in pushing a bipartisan immigration bill through the Senate.

A White House spokesman told POLITICO earlier Saturday that the administration continues to support a bipartisan plan from the Hill and has not produced a final bill to send to Congress.

Rubio's statement is combative, faulting the administration for releasing a proposal without getting Republican input. “It’s a mistake for the White House to draft immigration legislation without seeking input from Republican members of Congress," Rubio said. "President Obama’s leaked immigration proposal is disappointing to those of us working on a serious solution."
