BS. Rand voted against the amnesty bill.
You have not been following the news. Google "Rand Paul amnesty" and you will see that he has made many statements in favor of amnesty.
Rand Paul said:
“Why Im voting no on immigration reform”
“I will be voting no on the Senates Gang of Eight immigration bill for one simple reason: because the legislation does not secure the border first.
The American people desperately need immigration reform. Unfortunately, this legislation does not do the job.
Of paramount concern is what to do with the 12 million people currently residing in the United States who are in legal limbo. No one is seriously contemplating they leave, but conservatives believe that normalizing their status should only follow serious efforts to secure the U.S.-Mexican border. And Im sorry to say that the Gang of Eights proposal is just not serious.
Any immigration reform must expand legal immigration and the work visa program so that we dont find another 12 million undocumented workers here a decade from now. The Gang of Eight bill actually decreases the number of visas for agricultural workers. Havent we seen this movie before? If work visas are less than what the market demands, the workers will come illegally and were right back where we started.”
Here he speaks (also on the Teevee for the reading impared) of his wish to grant Amnesty to eleven million illegals.
In an interview with WNDtv, Sen. Paul took on the critics of so-called amnesty who oppose efforts to normalize illegal immigrants and absorb them into the United States. Lets get them work visas, lets normalize them, lets make them taxpayers, he said of the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently residing within the states.
Politicians vote against bills that they mostly, but don't entirely agree with, or for tactical reasons all the time. Like voting for cloture, but then voting against the final bill.
If we're looking for an indication of what a candidate will do as President, let's try a novel concept, and listen to what they say they want to do.
Rand Paul says he wants Amnesty.
