The above tweet references an article in the New Yorker written by Ryan Lizza. In the piece, Lizza quotes an unnamed staffer for Sen. Marco Rubio as saying a guest-worker program is a necessity because some American workers “can’t cut it.”
National Review’s Rich Lowry, who mentioned the quote at NRO’s The Corner blog, pointed out that Rubio’s spokesman “strongly objected” to the use of the “distorted” quote in Lizza’s article. Lowry set out to make sure the quote was accurate:
If the quote is indeed accurate, when it comes to politicians taking partial responsibility for the things people under their supervision say or do, the playing field of accountability should be level.
