Marco Rubio Says "I'm Done" If the Immigration Bill Protects Same-Sex Married Couples

I think it's fair to say that Senator Marco Rubio is not going to be remembered as a legendary civil rights figure:

"If this bill has something in it 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."

Yeah! How dare an immigration reform bill give people rights? And so forth? Giving people rights as citizens is totally antithetical to the very idea of an immigration reform bill. Anyway, giving people rights is just too difficult. Why even bother?
