WASHINGTON — Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., gave some details this week about his version of the DREAM Act, which he plans to unveil before September, reports La Opinón. A key element of the bill would provide undocumented youth access to visas.

In a meeting with national Hispanic media journalists, Rubio clarified that he has not yet drafted the bill, but acknowledged that he has been in talks with fellow Republicans and youth groups to refine the proposal.

"This should be done well. We have put a lot of energy in this proposal. They would receive a non-immigrant visa, [that is] renewable, allowing them to be in the country legally through which they can study and work," Rubio told La Opinón.
