Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) shot down the idea of including protections for LGBT couples in an immigration reform bill, as proposed by President Obama, Slate reports.
"I think it is a red herring," McCain said at a breakfast sponsored by Politico Wednesday. You may as well add "taxpayer-funded abortion."
"Which is more important, LGBT or border security? Huh? I'll tell you what my priorities are," McCain said.
