Rand Paul: GOP must 'evolve' on immigration

Source: Politico

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that Republicans must “evolve” on immigration while preventing America from becoming a magnet for immigrants to come and get benefits.


“We cannot just be a beacon for everyone to come here on benefits,” Paul said on conservative commentator Bryan Fischer’s radio program Wednesday.

“You can’t have open borders in a welfare state. We’ve got a pretty significant welfare state, so it’s not just about normalizing the 11 or 12 million here, it’s whether or not while you’re doing that another 11 or 12 million come in, and I think that will bankrupt the country,” Paul said.

He continued:“So I am concerned, but I’m also open-minded enough to say that it is an issue that we do need to evolve on. But I’m not willing to be so much in adapting that I believe you allow people to come in without having a secure border and without not letting people get to the front of the line.”

----------

Paul and other GOP'ers are intent on blocking immigration reform on the grounds that the border is not "secure" without explaining what the hell that means. Under Obama, border crossings have diminished considerably.

Rand spent more time in that article trashing immigrants than speaking in favor of reform.

Retard,

"Under Obama, border crossings have diminished considerably."

King Barry Soetoro and his Court Jesters have destroyed the US Economy. There are about 20% of working age Americans suffering without a job.

Latino's from South of the Border are a lot smarter than you Racist Demokrats portray them.

They get themselves deported (for free by Airliner), and they do not come here for work that does not exist.

Set down the Fauching Kool Aid and develop a thought!

Did you know that picking on a group of people because of a physical attribute is yet another form of bigotry?

People with mental retardation neither did anything to cause their condition nor deserve to be ridiculed.

What you are really doing is exposing your ignorance for the world to see.

The dems have already started the blame game prior to a bill even reaching the floor of either house. Why?? Because they know, in a short 4 years they will not be able to tighten or close the boarder, why? because they don't want to. They don't enforce the laws already on the books, so making tougher laws is not the answer. The libs don't want Perry or Brewer on the oversight board because they "don't trust them" Great way to start down the road to "working together to meet the needs of our citizens" The GOP knows, if the bill becomes law, prior to the boarder being closed, millions more come pouring in. This happen under Clinton and it will happen again. Compromise - tighten the boarder, give the 11-12 million illegals a path to citizenship. Seems simple enough

Retard, I did not and do not use the word "Mental" when addressing you Retards.

I do speak of your retarded emotions that have lead to your multiple Criminal Charges.

I know you know what I am talking about, do not deny it.

You and Slewsie were talking about your actions recently as she was titillating you with her adventures with Little BOI's in the Magical DOJO in the Sky.
