    This article about Rand Paul’s stand on Immigration is wrong. Rand Paul was on Glenn Beck today talking specifically about immigration. In addition to what he has posted on his official site regarding the matter, he said today on the radio that he thinks the student visa program needs to be enforced because there are many, many people here on student visas who violate the terms of that visa. Several of the culprits of the 9-11 were here on student visas but we had no idea where they were.

    On this topic, you ARE an unreliable source.

    From Rand Paul’s page:

    Immigration

    “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. 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.”

      You are dead wrong. Rand Paul DOES support amnesty, no matter how strongly he denies that fact or what he wants to call it his proposal. It amounts to amnesty, pure and simple. When you allow 11-20 mn people who blatantly violated America’s immigration law and its sovereignty to stay in the US indefinitely and even obtain US citizenship a few years down the road, that IS amnesty. It amounts to rewarding lawbreakers instead of punishing them.

      Rand Paul claims that the government will keep its promise this time and secure the border, and that Congress will vote on whether the border is secure.

      But the federal government NEVER keeps its promises, and neither do the Democrats. They promised they would cut spending. They haven’t. They promised in 1986 they would secure the border. Over a quarter of a century later, they STILL haven’t done that. Obama and the Dems promised they would fully fund the modernization of America’s nuclear deterrent and its support facilities in exchange for Republican votes to ratify New START. They have broken that promise as well.

      And now, Rand Paul, like a typical Washington politician, says, “trust us Washington politicians this time; we will secure the border.”

      Why should the American people trust them THIS TIME when they have NEVER kept their promise on any issue?

      Why should the American people trust THE CONGRESS? This is the same institution that passed Obamacare, can’t cut spending by even 1%, couldn’t avoid the fiscal cliff’s automatic tax hikes until January 1st, and can’t even bring itself to pass regular approps bill on time!

      And if Rand’s amnesty plan passes, Congress will merely have to pass, by a simple majority vote, a statement that the border is secure – even if it actually isn’t. By a simple majority vote, they can thus pat themselves on the back, even if they DON’T do the job of securing the border.

      Rand Paul is either a traitor or a conceited fool.
