How conservative were his votes for Hagel and Kerry?
Now it appears Rand Paul is going to the left of Rubio on this issue if you read his column in The Washington Times.
Rand refers to illegal aliens as "undocumented citizens" in the first sentence of the fifth paragraph, which is overly gracious wording not even the liberal media uses. Rand says Rubio's plan for fines and penalties for those who came here illegally as a means of making restitution is too harsh because many of them "are poor and may not be able to ever pay ten years of back payroll taxes. I would be willing to forego the fines and back taxes in exchange for a longer and significant time period before these folks are eligible to enter into the green card line." Rand never says who's going to be paying for those people that wait even longer for amnesty.
Rand says he would "normalize" illegals (aka amnesty) at a rate of two million per year, beginning with what he refers to as "Dream Act kids." I remember hearing from many Ron Paul people who criticized Mike Huckabee during the 2008 Iowa Caucuses because he was too soft on the illegal immigration issue. I wonder what those same people think after reading this? At least Rand was smart enough to write it in a conservative newspaper, and not pose for a photo-op with two liberals and the ultimate RINO as Rubio did.
I agree with your stance on illegals but we have a problem now and it's getting bigger by the day. The anchor babies back during the start of the Minuteman Project are starting to have their own children now.
The more time that passes, the more difficult it will be to do something.
We are moving too slow. Why? Because every election cycle we try to convince ourselves that a Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, John McCain would be better than a democrat and the GOP knows this.
We need another Minuteman Project moment in this nation and FAST.
