Well, I guess comprehensive immigration reform isn’t as critical as Sen. Marco Rubio has been telling us it is. If it were, I wouldn’t think that a few thousand folks would stand in the way of legalizing 20 million illegal immigrants. Right? Not according to Mr. Rubio.
Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, a co-author and key proponent of the Senate immigration bill, said he will revoke his support if an amendment is added that allows gay Americans to petition for same-sex spouses living abroad to secure a green card.
“If this bill has in it something that gives gay couples immigration rights and so forth, it kills the bill. I’m done,” Rubio said Thursday during an interview on the Andrea Tantaros Show. “I’m off it, and I’ve said that repeatedly. I don’t think that’s going to happen and it shouldn’t happen. This is already a difficult enough issue as it is.”
So let me get this straight. Rubio has been running around for months telling us that it is critical to pass his gang of eight bill because to do nothing would ruin the future for all Americans. Never mind that they broke our laws to get here, are causing us to spend billions on public education and healthcare, and haven’t paid taxes. Nope, we MUST legalize them now or the country goes down the drain. And we must legalize them before we secure the border so that they can pay the bill to secure the border. Alrighty then.
But, if you include a few thousand people that happen to be fond of people that are of the same sex they are, suddenly he’s “done”. Are you telling me that he thinks a few thousand same-sex couples are a bigger problem for the United States than the 20 million people here illegally? Is he insane?
So there you have it. You have your marching orders. Get out there and yell “teh gayz are coming” over and over and over again.
You know, when I first heard Rubio speak in person I thought he was awesome. But nowadays, I’m beginning to think that he might be the worst kind of politician. One that says only what he thinks needs to be said to get a vote. No core convictions, just a core belief that he should be in office. Good luck on that 2016 presidential run Marco.
