Ron Paul Gets an "F" on Immigration

Libertarian Congressman Ron Paul’s (R-Texas) stance on immigration has just been downgraded from C- to F by Numbers USA,  a non-partisan organization dedicated “to bring federal immigration policy back to a logical place.”
NumbersUSA is adamantly opposed to immigrant bashing. It states America’s immigration problem as follows:

“The 1990s saw the biggest population boom in U.S. history. This is truly astounding news coming three decades after widespread agreement among Americans that the country was mature and probably already overpopulated. No wonder Americans became increasingly alarmed at their deteriorating quality of life due to sprawl, congestion, overcrowded schools, lost open spaces and increasing restrictions on their individual liberty caused by the new population explosion! This population boom was almost entirely engineered by federal forced-growth policies that are still in place. The Census Bureau states that Americans will suffer this kind of rapid congestion every decade into the future unless Congress changes these policies.”

On the 12 most important immigration categories, Ron Paul’s ratings add up to an overall stance that just barely misses warranting an F-minus, which is the grade for Obama. Paul’s F is significantly worse than the grade of former Speaker Gingrich who had previously been the worst of all Republican 2012 presidential hopefuls on immigration.

Do Americans remember the promise of Teddy Kennedy regarding the 1986 amnesty bill? No other personage in American politics carries as much accountability as this Democrat/Liberal Ted Kennedy for the contemporary wretched state of U.S. immigration chaos. In his words: “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forth an amnesty bill like this.” Over five million foreign nationals suddenly materialized demanding—Mass AMNESTY. This was the first lie to the American people on immigration, as lie upon lie ever since has been piled on top of… Read more »

Bottom line is Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate who obeys the Constitution 100% of the time. The Constitution is very clear about immigration and a number of other subjects, everything else is left to the judgment of the individual states. If the Constitution is not good enough for you then please leave the country and let the rest of us live under the form of government the founders intended. And please save your bible misinterpretations. It is well documented that the Constitution was Bible inspired so please don’t pick and choose Bible passages like you do with picking and… Read more »
