Fox News / The Associated Press ^ | April 13, 2014

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love."

In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can't invite the whole world" inside its borders....

The Democrats can - and will - "invite the whole world."

To keep political control for one more election cycle, they'll gladly destroy the political and social system that has kept the United States free and prosperous for 240 years. They'll smile while they're doing it, and call you a racist for resisting.

“...you can’t invite the whole world...”

That is the problem, as a huge number of people want to come here. There are probably 100Million people in BOTH India and China who want to come to the US. Can we absorb 200,000,000 more people?

No. What we should be doing is limiting immigration to relatives of those already here legally, and those people who are enduring targeted genocide.

The genocide issue is interesting. At present it involves South African whites and colored people, and Christians in the Middle East. Neither group is considered politically correct. So, for Progressives, that means they should die.

Instead we are being overrun by illegal aliens originating from south of our border, namely Mexico, and Asians. Both regions appear to have good economies with plentiful jobs.

We do not usually expect people from regions with good economies to immigrate. But these people, once here, will vote for the Democrat Party.

No, Randie, they’re “not bad people”....they’re just lawbreakers who don’t assimilate once they get here - and demand Free Stuff™, paid for by the law abiders.

Paul is toast.

No. What we should be doing is limiting immigration to relatives of those already here legally, and those people who are enduring targeted genocide.

I can't say I agree with this, either. What we should be doing is using a system like Australia has where:

1) English speakers are favored.
2) Youth are favored
3) The educated are favored
4) Those with professional expertise in needed fields of study are favored.
5) Married couples where the spouse also fits the above are favored.

I'd prefer to favor immigrants from ally nations, as well.

If you get an immigration system like this, you don't need to worry so much about being culturally inundated or forcing relatively low skill US workers out of competition for jobs or so suppressing wages that the general populace is hurt by immigration. If you're bringing in immigrants who will be able to fill an immediate need, you're getting a net plus out of the system.

It should be noted that even the average legal immigrant costs this nation money right now. Yes, they cost more than they contribute. What's the value of having any immigrants if this is the case? I'd argue that there's no value at all.

Sen Jeff Sessions (who I think is great for a number of reasons) is the only 1 that I’ve heard speaking out about jobs and lower and middle class citizens and how they’ll be affected by “immigration reform” (e.g., amnesty).

Rand Paul's immigration speech
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reform
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...

Jeff Sessions. He’s probably the last one left on Earth.

Just another mealy mouthed politician who refuses to pit himself against the law breakers invading our country, who refuses to stand up for the ‘Rule of Law’ which has been the backbone of what helped to make America the greatest nation on earth for nearly 300 years. America does not need another forked-tongue politician who disrespects the law of the land and the American people. He is just one more in a growing line of pandering, lying politicians who will say anything to get elected.
