Rand Slams Democrats On Immigration
Article from Real Clear Politics by Ian Schwartz.
SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): Well you know I think we ought to look at a way to try to not separate the families but we should also understand that our first priority would be to keep everybody safe and I think children in an area where people are being detained for illegally coming across the border, there’s always the possibility that some of the people being detained could either be smugglers of drugs, sexual traffickers. And so really in all of our system of incarceration throughout the United States we don’t ever put children with adults. Now I understand the emotions of this and I think we should look for a solution but I don’t think everybody should say oh we’re doing this or people are doing this on purpose because they want to separate the kids. I think people truly do and are concerned about the safety of the children and how you have children mixed in with adults- some of the adults aren’t their parents and some of the adults frankly aren’t good people. And I think the other thing is that this fits into an overall immigration question that we have to ask. Do we want to tell everybody in Central America, load up a kid or two, cross the desert- which is really essentially child abuse because people die in the desert- and then try to come into the country? It’s not what we want, it’s not what we can handle, and it’s not the appropriate way. There are immigration stations and centers where you can go, knock on the door and say I’m applying for asylum, but frankly we can’t have all of Central America come to these stations either. So it is a complicated bigger question than people are making it out to be.
I think there are some answers. I mean some of the answers people have talked about, instead of people going crazy with the tax and calling the president names, maybe what we should do is think about some solutions and work together on the solutions. This would require Democrats not hurling insults and swearing at the president, this would involve Democrats coming to Republicans and saying hey how can we do this? Number one, protect the safety of the children so they’re not molested or assaulted in any of these areas where they’re being processed and then two how do we do it in such a fashion that we can maybe get the processing done quicker. Senator Cruz and others have proposed something where we would have more judges seeing the cases. What has happened historically- and this is still happening- when you separate the children, the children are being sent into either foster care or relatives care and are staying in the U.S. and the parents are being deported back to their home country. It probably would be better if everybody stays together for the family unit but what would be best is if parents are not crossing the desert and kids die every year crossing the desert so do adults. We just need to have a situation where people in Central America know that we are not just welcoming millions of people to come illegally.

Leftist emoting without thinking AGAIN. IF they actually THOUGHT about the safety of the children, and how the law works in America itself; they’d sit down and shut up, and think of ways to change the LAW. But for the moment that is the wisest course for the CHILDREN’s sakes.
THIS, ‘IS, the time’, to Stop, ‘Partisan, DIATRIBES’! WE, “NEED”, RULES, for “Immigrants! America, Cannot ‘Absorb’, the entire Human Race!
Rand Paul made a sensible comment and both sides should relax and consider it. I wish he would stay in Congress as the sensible one.
We can’t have the whole world coming to this land of opportunity mostly without education and being dishwashers or parking lot attendants.
Rand Paul is exactly right. First off these adults know the risks of attempting illegal entry into American and they still are Brazen enough to attempt breaking Laws before even making entry into Americas. If Americans just tried entering any foreign country they certainly wouldn’t meet welcoming arms; shelter; food;; become a welfare recipient etc. The answer lies with the democrats. Since they love illegals so much they should withdraw all their financial funds ;then round up the illegals they love so much and open their own kingdom on one of the Survivor Islands. They will have the control they seek. The dem’s also speak like they love America so they will be required to import goods from us which will great increase our export business.. They will be the landowners and their friends the illegals will be their servants subjected to their every whim. Immigration Problem solved and a new Social Culture enters the world.
can’t really work together with people who are shady and don’t have the best interests of current Americans at heart
Rand wants us to work with the Democrats to see if we can find a way to stop South Americans from gathering up the kids and bringing them across the desert to get into the USA. Rand is a nice man, but i’m pretty sure he knows that the South Americans gathering up their kids and coming here is exactly what the Democrats want-they need the adults, because they will become Democrat voters and they need the children because the kids are the tickets required for entry. It is plainly silly to expect or hope the Democrats will work with Republicans to solve the problem. The only solution the Democrat will accept is full citizenship for every person south of America’s border.
