Rand Paul: U.S. Should Stop Granting Citizenship To Children Of Illegal Immigrants (VIDEO)

Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul recently shared with a Russian television station his belief that the United States should end its policy of guaranteeing citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants.

"We shouldn't provide an easy route to citizenship," Paul explained. "We're the only country that I know that allows people to come in illegally, have a baby, and then that baby becomes a citizen. And I think that should stop."

In the interview Paul also suggested what steps he thinks lawmakers should take to address illegal immigration -- one of his ideas being constructing an "underground electrical fence" along the boarder. The Senate hopeful even mentions the solution on his campaign website in defining his stance on the issue:
Millions crossing our border without our knowledge constitutes a clear threat to our nation's security. I will work to secure our borders immediately. My plans include an underground electric fence, with helicopter stations to respond quickly to breaches of the border.
Also on his campaign website, Paul supports his position on illegal immigration by citing the protections outlined in the 10th amendment of the U.S. Constitution -- a frequent point of reference for the self-described "constitutional conservative."
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.
Paul doesn't mention however, the 14th amendment of the Constitution, which guarantees U.S. citizenship to all persons born in the country.

Sooooo.....yeah.   I'm not all that surprised Rand Paul couldn't keep his mouth shut for more than a few days, but I certainly didn't expect him to start spouting his views to international press instead.  I'm curious as to how many Russian voters he thinks will help him get elected in Kentucky?

"We shouldn't provide an easy route to citizenship," Paul explained. "We're the only country that I know that allows people to come in illegally, have a baby, and then that baby becomes a citizen. And I think that should stop."

Well, apparently he doesn't even know how to use Google, which really is no surprise to anyone.  The term for becoming a citizen when you're born in a country is "jus soli", and there are quite a few countries besides the U.S. who allow it, including Canada and MEXICO, believe it or not.

" I support making English the official language of all documents and contracts."


Are we back to that old chestnut again?  *sigh*

Oh and.....

My plans include an underground electric fence, with helicopter stations to respond quickly to breaches of the border.

Suuure, because THAT sounds like such a GREAT IDEA.  If they won't stay out, we might as well electrocute them instead.  :\

HOW THE FUCK ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR A MEXICAN DOGGIE FENCE AND HELICOPTERS TO SHOOT THE HEATHENS?
I'm all for securing the border as well, but for protection from the drug cartel war that will probably spill over any day now, not for blatant racist purposes. If Rand Paul manages to get elected... dear goodness.
