FILE - In this March 12, 2013 file photo, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. is seen on Capitol Hill in Washington. Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee accused their GOP colleagues working on a bipartisan immigration bill of operating in secret, saying in a letter Friday, April 5, 2013, that "the time for transparency has come" and pushing for briefings and full hearings before any votes. In response, Rubio, a member of the Senate group developing a sweeping bill that could be released as early as next week, said he agreed on the need for hearings and planned to brief all Senate Republicans next week.
