“I’m simply saying you can get a work visa and you can get in the normal line. I’m not creating a new line for citizenship. I’m just saying you can get in the current line that exists. The only thing I’m saying is you don’t have to go home.”

Rand Paul, attempting to clarify his immigration position

To clarify, the Great Libertarian Hope Rand Paul’s position is that undocumented workers should be able to get some sort of work visa that allows them to live as second-class members of societies while they “get in the current line that exists.”

The problem? There is no general purpose line.

There is, however, a line for “family reunification.” If, for example, your brother is a U.S. citizen and you want to join him, you can wait in that line. If you’re coming from the Phillippines the line is about twenty-four years long.

Rand Paul’s plan to fix immigration doesn’t actually fix immigration.

Excerpts from Rand Paul’s filibuster. 

This seems like a good place to drop this Politico headline: “Rand Paul: ‘Seriously’ weighing 2016 bid.”
Yeah, that’s what it was all about… Taking over the “crackpot running for president” business from his father.

From Maddowblog:
It’s possible Republican Rand Paul of Kentucky isn’t quite cut out for work in the U.S. Senate. Consider this item he tweeted over the weekend (via Joe Sonka).
