Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s top lawyer in the closed-door effort to draft a new immigration bill is a Democratic donor who earns his living by bringing foreign workers into the country on behalf of corporations and universities.
The lawyer, Enrique Gonzalez, is a partner at the nation’s largest immigration firm whose future depends on the outcome of Gonzalez’s closed-door work.
Rubio hired Gonzalez in January, when he was a partner at the Coral Gables, Fla., office of Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy.
