As I said in great detail in another thread, Rand Paul is trying to dress up an excrement sandwich. I don’t want to hear any talk of immigration reform that gives these illegals a path to citizenship outside the normal process. I also don’t want to see anything done on the matter until our border is secured with a very large fence, where practicable, and demonstrated enforcement of immigration laws. Until then, the gang of 8 can take their poop sandwich and cram it.
I agree that security needs to be number one. I think that any bill should be split into three parts and voted on separately. 1 Border Enforcement, 2 Employee/Voter Verification, and 3 legal status reform.
If 1 and 2 are not implemented we should not even consider the legal status reform. It would be political suicide.
