WASHINGTON, DC. -
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is predicting that a White House-backed bill aimed at curbing legal immigration won't have enough support to pass the Senate.

"That bill's not going to pass. ... I think the White House knows that you don't have 60 votes for that in the Senate," Rubio told a Florida CBS station.

The bill, which President Trump rolled out last week with GOP Sens. David Perdue (Ga.) and Tom Cotton (Ark.), would aim to move legal immigration to a "merit-based" system and cut the number of green cards given out every year.
