Rand Paul ran for the US Senate on a campaign of border security. Now Rand Paul is endorsing mass amnesty for all illegal aliens.
He told ABC’s This Week that he wants to let illegal aliens to have stay and issue work visas to an undisclosed number of new immigrants on top of that.
Ironically Rand Paul railed against unemployment right before endorsing a policy that would send unemployment rates skyrocketing. Rand Paul can’t seem to understand the most basic economics. More labor equal lower wages and fewer available jobs.
This comes on the heels of Rand Paul’s right-wing staff member Jack Hunter resigning and publicly denouncing himself as a “racist.” Hunter had spent years publishing right-wing columns and praising men like Pat Buchanan and Samuel Francis.
Just a week ago American Renaissance published a column calling Rand Paul the biggest “Renegade” of 2013. The column says Rand Paul “did the most damage when he could have done the most good.”
Rand Paul (fast forward to 8:45 on the video)…
Yes. The reason — and I’ve had this conversation with Senator Schumer before — is that the reason it has failed is that the Senate bill that he proposed actually limited work visas and, I think, creates an incentive for more illegal immigration.I’m for very expansive work visas. If you want to come to our country or if you’re one of the 11 million who are here, I’m for giving you a work visa.There is a debate, though, over citizenship and how quickly. I don’t think the House is ready for citizenship.So, really, the question to Democrats is will you go halfway?Are you willing to try to bring the 11 million people who are here, bring them out of the shadows, give them an existence, try to have — be more humane and try to get them a better situation for them?That could happen tomorrow. The problem is, is the sticking point going to be we have to have immediate voting privileges for those who came here illegally?I think that’s more of a sticking point.If the Democrats are willing to come halfway, I think we can pass something — some meaningful reform that would help the 11 million who are here.
