McCain: Obama Put Damaging 'Red Herring' In Immigration Reform

Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) said at Wednesday's Politico Playbook Breakfast that Obama adding same-sex couple protections in a comprehensive immigration reform bill is a complication that has the capacity to destroy the bill

“I think it is a red herring,”

“I’m telling you now, if you load this up with social issues and things that are controversial, the it will endanger the issue. I’ll be glad to talk about, discuss it, what the ramifications are, but if someone does that as the most important aspect of comprehensive immigration reform, then we just have a fundamental disagreement.”

“Which is more important, LGBT or border security, huh? I’ll tell you what my priorities are. So, again, if you’re going to load it up with social issues, that is the best way to derail it in my view.”
