Rand Paul's plan is amnesty because it gives immediately those who entered illegally, committed ID theft, worked illegally, were guilty of tax evasion. etc. the right to stay and work here, the object of their crime.
E-Verfiy works and actually protects the emplpoyer. We must shut off the job magnet. Paul is uninformed about the immigration issue. And border security is only part of the problem. 40% of the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens entered this country legally and overstayed their visa.
Hes not opposed to the data-base check, not eligible to vote not eligible for welfare. Wants govt to do it, not burden business.
More silliness from Paul. We already have a data base and laws that are supposed to prevent illegal aliens from receiving federal benefits. The problem is one of enforcing existing laws. And what do you do with businesses that hire illegal aliens if you go on the assumption that all people in this country are here legally? It removes the businesses from all culpability.
On GOP getting hispanic vote by supporting amnesty, he wants Trust but Verify program. Doesnt trust any president to handle border security, wants Congress to deal with it every year
Supporting amensty would get the GOP the Hispanic vote.
Supporting amenity would get the GOP the Hispanic vote.? LOL.
I've heard the opposite regarding "Hispanic" US citizens, unless you're talking about illegal aliens who vote. Unfortunately (and inexplicably) most Latinos and other Catholics usually vote RAT anyway.
Rand Paul should be a bit clearer on E-Verify. Saying it’s the ‘government’s job’ doesn’t tell the listener that we already have laws on the books & employers are already required to verify eligibility to work. I was a payroll clerk at a university many years ago, & each person had to show proof of a) citizenship or b) proof of a visa that permitted them to work before getting on the payroll. The form we were required to complete was an ‘I-9’. It may be that E-Verify is simpler, but that process of verification is already in effect.
Of course, there’s the issue of stolen identity or fraudulent documents, but those are also a problem for the government.
