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.
Great from his offical web site at senate.gov
"I do not support amnesty, I support legal immigration and recognize that the country has been enriched by those who seek the freedom to make a life for themselves. However, millions of illegal immigrants are crossing our border without our knowledge and causing a clear threat to our national security. I want to work in the Senate to secure our border immediately. In addition, I support the creation of a border fence and increased border patrol capabilities.
Immigrants should meet the current requirements, which should be enforced and updated. I realize that subsidizing something creates more of it, and do not think the taxpayer should be forced to pay for welfare, medical care and other expenses for illegal immigrants. Once the subsidies for illegal immigration are removed, the problem will likely become far less common.
I support local solutions to illegal immigration as protected by the 10th amendment. ,b>I support making English the official language of all documents and contracts.
Millions crossing our border without our knowledge constitutes a clear threat to our nation's security. Instead of closing military bases at home and renting space in Europe, I am open to the construction of bases to protect our border.
Yes, watch the edited video. I agree with everything he says. Your definition of amnesty and his (and mine) must be quite different. Headline is a LIE, he never says in the edited video... he has a wish to grant amnesty to ANYONE.
He has a well thought out plan. Maybe instead of bloviating inaccuracies, you might read up on what he has to say.
Explore this site. It has a wealth of info from Rand himself, about himself.
Agree. Let’s not be bitterly surprized later, when we can listen to what they’re actually saying and watch what they’re doing now.
