Anti-"immigration"? What BS. This is about ILLEGAL immigration. So the Latino community is so self-centered and racist that they think the GOP and every other politician should thumb their noses at our immigration laws just for them? Sickening anti-American, tribal mentality!
Racist much? There is nothing (repeat nothing) in this article that is directly, first hand attributable to the Hispanic community. It is merely a white Rand Paul hypothesizing that the GOP needs to reach out to them (presumably in a way that does not favor deportations), and, Paul's position is based on a report done by the (non-Hispanic) National GOP Committee that analyzed their 2012 presidential failure and recommended that Republicans do more to reach out to the Hispanic community. Your use of this to launch your anti-Hispanic tirade is repulsive.

His daddy Ron went over to the dark side right before he retired too. Whatever good ideas he has are now overshadowed by his new love for illegal aliens. He's another one who sites politics and votes over what's good for our country as his reason to support illegal aliens. He's no damn good, then again, not many in the Senate are.

Reading comprehension much? Directly from the article..."the Republican Party must move beyond deportation in order to reach out to the Latino community". So WTH do you mean this wasn't about the Hispanic community? You know damned well they want the deportations stopped and amnesty for their ethnic group. It is the number one way for the GOP to reach out to them. They have to thumb their noses at our immigration laws in order to reach them. I have no anti-Hispanic sentiments towards Hispanics who respect the rule of law and are assimilating into our country. As for any citizens whether they be Hispanic or not if they think they are above our laws and special I have no use for them. That's a bad thing? Stick your race card where the sun don't shine!

Rand Paul and his Shirley Temple hairdo can hit the pike. This decision makes it perfectly clear that Rand Paul is more concerned with votes than working Americans or the middle class. He gotta go.

Beyond deportation to what? Open borders? There are no other choices, legal entry, or criminal entry. The Republicans will be committing political suicide if they grant any kind of Amnesty for illegal aliens.

Rand Paul had better be very very careful about what he says about illegal alien amnesty lest he rubio himself. Yeah, maybe Paul can pick up a few latino votes here and there by claiming to be against deporting illegal alien border jumpers but he'll lose 10-100 votes from American conservatives for every single hispanic vote he picks up. However, if Paul is lying like demoRATs always lie about their real intentions and tell the dumbed down low/no info ignorant gullible voters what they want to hear and instead of not deporting illegal mexiholes plans on deporting illegal mexiholes as fast as possible, then OK.
I think you hit the nail on the head. He Rubio'd himself up. Him and that sissy boy hairdo.

""The lack of empathy for immigrants goes beyond Paul. Even after the Republican National Committee published a so-called autopsy report of the GOP’s 2012 election loss, Congressional Republicans have done a poor job of building bridges. A few key highlights of that botched outreach strategy include saying that immigrants come from a more violent civilization, calling the Senate immigration bill “calculated and cold-blooded,” brushing off children and teenagers whose parents are in deportation proceedings, and making absolutely no mention of immigration reform in a video for Hispanic Heritage Month.""

Time for another autopsy, repubes!

I think that might be because gang-rapes and child molestations (the official state sports) take a lot longer than standard consentual sex.
Hoo, boy, you got some sick fascination with rape and such, don't you?

You attack the Hispanic Community because of what the Republican Party says to their own membership? The Republican Party doesn't speak for the Hispanic Community, you obdurate old shriveled up ball sac.

Rand Paul just went from a good possibility for our country to an insider buffoon who backs McConnell and thinks that pandering for illegal votes trumps representing his country. He's always talking about liberty then he turns out to be a politics first panderer. He's out.

You're right, the Hispanic community speaks for itself. The majority of them are demanding that the deportations stop. Where do you think the GOP got it from if not Hispanics themselves? I see you're just another pro-illegal hack who has no viable arguments so you resort to nasty personal attacks. You all act like a bunch of immature juveniles.

Well, unlike you, I stay on topic, which, BTW is about a lilly white senator and his lilly white GOP trying to ingratiate themselves and trying to channel the Hispanic Community. And you, like a loony lemming took the bait, hook, line and sinker.

Hispanics do not make up enough of a voting block to make a difference in a national election. Next election will be about the county, what we stand for, and what we expect from Americans. Not foreigners, Americans. The Candidate that stands behind the Constitution, and is law abiding, wants to renew the middle class, and ignores the voo doo dancers will be elected. Even liberals are beginning to see past the lying, and incompetence. Rand Corporation is reporting the real number of sign ups for ObamaScam is 3.4 million, not 7.1 reported. That is a big, big, lie. It is that kind of lie that will get the Democrats thrown out of office, and it should.
