U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), was born in Miami, Florida, one of the four children of Cuban immigrants who came to America in 1956. He is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issue.
Senator Rubio is a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, where he has advocated modernizing and reforming the federal government’s programs to help small businesses thrive in the 21st-century economy.
Senator Rubio had said he "is passionate about the American Dream because he’s lived it himself." His parents came to America from Cuba in 1956 and earned their way to the middle class by working humble jobs. Through their loving and powerful example, he learned the importance of work and family and came to realize that all things are possible in America.
He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida in 1993 and a Juris Doctor from the University of Miami Law School in 1996.
