Rand Paulís immigration plan: Border security before probationary legal status

Posted on 03/19/2013 1:56:47 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

The AP claimed this morning that Paul was set to endorse a path to citizenship in his speech today. Not so, countered conservatives on Twitter: Read his prepared remarks and you’ll see that citizenship is never mentioned. Which is true, and also irrelevant.

The whole point of Paul’s speech is GOP rapprochement with Latino voters; he spends nearly two-thirds of it extolling Latinos’ work ethic, reminiscing about his friendships with Latinos growing up in Texas, name-checking Jaime Escalante and Pablo Neruda, and of course citing the ancient canard that Latinos are really just Republicans who don’t know it yet. (He mentions abortion and gay marriage as particular areas of overlap).

How about border security and deportations?

Rand Paul: The solution doesn’t have to be amnesty or deportation-a middle ground might be called probation where those who came illegally become legal through a probationary period.

And when the “probationary period” expires they become legal, ie AMNESTY.

He says they’ll blend into the culture.

Right.

They’ll learn English with all the wimps around here and in leadership apologizing to them that we’re not learning Spanish quickly enough.

How about they can’t vote?

This is a travesty and it is totally, totally out of control.

Look, this is not a perfect solution but if the illegals will not be deported under obama they might as well start paying taxes. They can still be deported later.

They will be takers, not makers. They will receive far more in government benefits than they pay in taxes.

These are the folks who will be paying all those taxes. More than half of them lack even a HS diploma. How much tax money will we get from mostly high school dropouts compared to the benefits they will receive? Will they be eligible for Obamacare?

They take, push and force.

Paul says they’ll be part of the culture.

That’s an insult to anyone’s intelligence.

this is about votes and the republican stupid party is falling for this trap.

In our community, the wealthy Mexicans pulled out to the church and school for being told they can’t vote for a pro abortion candidate and be in God’s grace.

They left in droves.

They will not vote for republicans to save their souls and they are teaching their children this, while they force their language and culture onto the community.

The local businesses are bilingual and non Spanish speakers cannot get work.

Yeah, there’ll be deportations. The border is way north of the Rio Grande.

There is no such thing as “probationary” legal status

The “probation” thing will be thrown out in a heartbeat, heck I would throw that out.

“probationary period” will be ruled unconstitutional and walla, 40 million new Democrat voters on the dole.

The end of America.

Nope, if the probationary status is struck down they will just go back to being illegals.

OK I just heard Rand on the Hannity radio show and when Hannity asked him if border security would be first,

RAND SAID NOOOOOOO

The illegals would get work visas right away. Then we would work on border security. Congress is going to vote on whether the border is secure, what a joke!!

He told a heart warming story of when he was a young man working with illegals doing roofing jobs etc. That was a long time ago and really has no basis with illegal aliens today.

Here is a solution.

Mandatory 4 years in the military or a lifetime of not being able to vote in any election.

Or you may go home and apply for citizenship after a 4 year wait.

There isn’t going to be mass deportation, even Michelle Bachmann is against.
