Skip to comments.Rand Paul: Let's Compromise on Amnesty
Posted on 06/11/2014 10:06:04 PM PDT by This Just In
A day after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) lost his primary after Dave Brat hammered him on amnesty, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) embraced "immigration reform" on a conference call with Michael Bloomberg's pro-amnesty group and Grover Norquist.

I think Rand is off the reservation. We need to enforce our laws secure our borders. Once that’s done, then, and only then we can discuss immigration schemes.
Paul didn’t get the message I guess.
Yeah let’s “compromise”. The invaders go the hell home and take up their demands and grievances with their own governments and we’ll stay here in our country.
He’s loose! lost in the RINO herds now. Hope he sees sanity.
I believe the only thing Paul got was a massage.
I never understand why we need immigration “reform” when we don’t enforce the laws on the books.
I never understand why we are supposed to accept that millions of illegals here are okay, because they are doing work Americans aren’t doing. Why aren’t able bodied people on public assistance, being recruited to do these jobs? Many such jobs, such as janitorial/housekeeping, and farm work, are jobs that unskilled people can do. Why does it make sense to keep people on welfare, then import people from other countries to do the work????
Our border is compromised.
Double Down, Rand. Go All In...
If all Democrats are as bad at negotiating trades as Obama, then it might be worth it.
Was he ever on the reservation is my question.
I agree! The trend is frightening. If our “leaders” do not shape up and take a hard line on the illegals, that is, deporting them and making it impossible for them to get a job here (so they deport themselves), then the country is doomed. Speaking as a Hispanic, these illegals have no respect for U.S. law, and probably have very little respect for Mexican law too (though Mexico, these days, is quite lawless to begin with). Why would we want these people in our country who, in one big swoop, can change the political landscape once given the right to vote, and, considering they are all by definition criminals, will most likely vote to increase criminality and the social welfare state?
We Americans must have the right to regulate our borders and to pick and choose who we want in this country. I support legal immigration into this country of the best and brightest minds or hardest workers who will improve our nation. NOT these people who think they are entitled to ignore the law and receive financial assistance!
If they get voting rights, the constitution and the republic are both done for. What is there to compromise on?
“If all Democrats are as bad at negotiating trades as Obama, then it might be worth it.”
You do realize that your statement is laughable, yes?
Why don’t you leave to the country of your ancestors....
Rand Paul: GTH
Rand has totally lost all touch with reality.
I posted some time back that Paul had gotten a little too diplomatic with the dems. Playing a little to nice is usually a precursor to the total fold on one issue or another. Seems we are now seeing him fold.
It is a shame, he is from my state and I had high hopes for him.
The Libertarian Reservation.
We already are done for.
It is policy to not enforce immigration law or to control our borders.
We have defacto dissolution of the borders - which is to say dissolution of our nation.
Brought to you by Democrats AND Republicans.
Watching Rand on Hannity now. He has gone full-on Dad crazy.
He needs to be contained from here on out.
Do those things and illegal aliens will deport themselves and pay for the trip.
This guy is a total nothing. The more I see of him the more it’s obvious he really has no center.
Okay, let’s compromise this way, for every traitorous son of a bitch that goes to Mexico and stays there we let one illegal immigrant stay here. Let’s see we have mr. mulato and moochelle, biden and all the rest of the demonrat’s, mcconny, mclame, Boner,paul and and the rest of the RINO’s. So what, we let a few hundred illegals stay while the traitors and the rest go back to Mexico. I can live with that.
On the other hand, being a text book libertarian in favor of the free flow of labor across state borders is not something to get excited about.
Rand shouldn't be so naive as to think that the Democrats support illegal immigration because they favor free market principles. He should be aware that once all of the labor moves freely across our borders they will start to collect welfare and vote more like Democrats than Libertarians.
This is another case where a partial libertarian solution is worse than no libertarianism at all.
Rand has lost all conservative credibility. As you stated, he has gone the way of his father, and we all know how that turned out.
That is what any sane rational patriotic American would do.
The Democrat and Republican party are none of those things.
He has become a useful idiot for some.
Here’s a compromise for you Rand: First, we take our country back and expel the illegal alien invaders. Second, you can bugger off.
Let,s send Rand a message by defeating Mitch. Birds of a feather et. al.
Answer to your question — the sense of shoving the American citizen onto welfare and giving his job to the foreigner — is that both welfare recipients and foreigners/ immigrants usually vote to keep the political hacks in
Power. Job security — for crooked politicians. Priority One.
I have a feeling Mitch is sweating right about now.
No, they are not.
Let’s compromise, in exchange for allowing big business to makes millions of Mexicans into slaves, they will end the Republican Party. Sounds far.
He responds to the world like Marie Antoinette did.
In the past tense. Apparently he gorges on Potomac fever.
He’s not the guy he promised himself and us to be.
Good riddance as the nascent TEA order will have no use for him.
‘Rand shouldn’t be so naive as to think that the Democrats support illegal immigration because they favor free market principles. He should be aware that once all of the labor moves freely across our borders they will start to collect welfare and vote more like Democrats than Libertarians’
I met Paul once before he was elected and my impression was of a guy eat up with short man’s disease. Short man’s disease comes with a lust for power. He is far from naive.
He’s not one of us. Probably never was.
Gun control and immigration reform are the knockout combination they have planned for us.
None of the rest of it matters once they put those two in place, and they know it. And we know it. And they know we know it, and they’re pushing hard.
I knew there was something shaky about this guy
FURP!! Amnesty pimps need not apply!!
Folks forget that he grew up there. Son of a Congressman and all.
Unless he is on script he comes across as weak if he has to think on his feet. I think when his libertarian streak runs into reality he freezes.
They’re not quite done for but there are certainly powerful forces hard at work to ensure our demise. If they manage to disarm us, we’re done for. This is how and why the immigration issue and the gun control issue are linked together and why both issues should be absolute red lines to anyone that considers themself a republican and/or a conservative.
They are deliberately destroying the country.
Did it release his shakras?
you are correct.
Compromise is how you lose incrementally.
