Hours after USA Today obtained the first draft of President Obama’s immigration reform plan, the office of Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) put out a press release signaling the lawmaker’s strong opposition.

“It’s a mistake for the White House to draft immigration legislation without seeking input from Republican members of Congress,” the statement begins, before going on to call the bill “half-baked and seriously flawed” and declaring that “if actually proposed, the President’s bill would be dead on arrival in Congress.”

Specifically, Rubio’s statement criticizes the Obama bill for not being tough enough on border security and for failing to reward “those who chose to do things the right way and come here legally” over “those who broke our immigration laws.”
