Posted on 05/08/2013 1:11:36 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy on Tuesday proposed a gay rights amendment to the Senate's immigration bill, prompting one of the measure's Republican sponsors to repeat his prediction that it could sink the legislation. "It'll kill the bill," Florida Senator Marco Rubio said in a brief interview. "There is a coalition of groups who are supporting immigration reform who will not support it if that's in there."
Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants and a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2016, is key to attracting conservative support for the bill. It remained uncertain whether the amendment would make it through the committee, which is controlled by Democrats.
The Leahy amendment, one of more than 100 offered two days before the Judiciary Committee takes up the bill, would allow U.S. citizens who are in "long-term committed relationships" to sponsor their foreign partners for green cards, which would allow them to live and work legally in the United States.

Never liked Rubio, he speaks out of both sides of his mouth.
Good news, the witch is dead.
So Rubio thinks that we need to import more fags?

It must be upside down day. For once - I agree with Leahy.
Rubio is right. Adding gay rights WILL kill the bill.
So, Go Pat Go!
Maybe they think the GOP wants amnesty badly enough that they'll buy more radical leftwing bells & whistles.
On the other hand, maybe the democrats want to kill the bill altogether.
And if he becomes the nominee in 2016? What then?
What happened when Romney became the nominee? Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Treason... with a strap-on.
Then we have a repeat of 2008 and 2012. That being the case...
Defeat all RINO’s and their liberal agendas now! While you can.
Good! Let it die.
Sure they will. Scratch my back, I'll scratch yours - it would take a professional politician to appreciate that, though...oh, wait...
I thought he was saying, absolutely not - guess not.
Well, we have to support him.....he is the only one who can win. /s/
Well you what they say Rube-io, lay down with dogs, get up with fleas.
Say goodbye to your presidential aspirations, ya shmuck.
You’ve misspelled Rubio’s name. It should be Rub[e]io, as in Rube. Schumer’s done a great job of selling him a certain bridge in Brooklyn.
All his opponents need to do is morph his face into Mark Zuckerberg's and he's finished.
We pick our guy now and freeze out any RINOs that try to horn in. It is imperative that we rally behind sombody very soon -- before 2014.
