    Ron Paul voted against the border fence before he voted for it. In other words, he and others folks in the U.S. Congress flip-flopped on the border fence to protect themselves from their constituents. Paul is no different than almost every politician in the U.S. Congress - job preservation is his top motivator.

    Voted on House floor against amendment to increase security with border fence in 2005

    Rep. Paul voted against the Hunter Amendment to H.R. 4437, the Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005. The Hunter Amendment would shore up security by building fences and other physical infrastructure to keep out illegal aliens. Specifically, it mandates the construction of specific security fencing, including lights and cameras, along the Southwest border for the purposes of gaining operational control of the border. As well, it includes a requirement for the Secretary of Homeland Security to conduct a study on the use of physical barriers along the Northern border. The Hunter Amendment passed by a vote of 260-159.

    There is more to learn about Ron Paul and immigration. He is NOT consistent and does some really silly things.

    CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

    Recognizing the important relationship between the United States and Mexico.

    Whereas the United States and Mexico share a special bilateral friendship matched by few other countries in the world;

    Whereas the United States and Mexico are partners joined by geography as well as by a series of government-to-government and private relationships which are of critical importance to both countries;

    Whereas the United States and Mexico share concern on a wide range of issues, including trade and immigration, environmental quality, economic development, and regional security and stability; and

    Whereas the special relationship between the United States and Mexico is critically important in its own right as well as serving as a linchpin in the relationship between the United States and every nation in Central and South America: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that it is in keeping with the just interests of the United States that the special nature of the relationship between the United States and Mexico be recognized and further cultivated to the mutual benefit of both countries.

    CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

    Recognizing the important contributions of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

    Whereas the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of the United States has had a significant impact among Hispanic businesses, and in the business community in general;

    Whereas the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has served in a key support role, not merely as a business group but also as a civic organization working in the Hispanic-American community; and

    Whereas the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has helped to bring entrepreneurship to the Hispanic community as well as helping to pool the resources and talents of Hispanic American entrepreneurs: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that it is important to the promotion of the free market process of the United States, to the future success of Hispanic Americans, and to society at large that the special role of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of the United States be recognized and further cultivated to the benefit of all Americans.


    More of his questionable co sponsoring of liberal/socialist congresspeople:

    And that's why I won't support him and this should be a red flag. Bottom line he's anti-government and wants no rules- just let everything run wild.

    I Was Wrong About Ron Paul On Immigration

    By Digger

    Workplace Verification And Free Trade


    Free trade affects immigration and Ron Paul is against it firmly. He voted against CFTA (Chile Free trade Agreement), SFTA (Singapore Free trade Agreement) and CAFTA (Central American Free trade Agreement). He also voted to prevent immigration related items to be included in Free Trade Agreements.
    [b]What???
    Ron Paul is for TRUE FREE TRADE
    He voted “NO

    In the Bible, Jesus turned water into wine. But then RuPaul turned that wine into beer.


    Bet you did not know that...

    Another small strike against Paul is his voting in favor of doubling high tech worker H1-B visas in 1998. In that same year he also voted against a bill that would have required that businesses ensure that they've actively tried to hire an American worker before applying to have a foreign worker come here on a visa like the H1-B.
    The H1-B visa issue is a huge deal, but I think that it can be worked out. I think Ron Paul, unlike some other candidates, is more apt to LISTEN to "the people". The rest of his stand on illegal immigration seems good.

    Ron Paul is awesome. That is all I am saying.

    I just can't get on board with the "islofascistislamonazi" talk, nor can I buy the rhetoric of some here, that 'FREE TRADE' is bad.

    Free trade benefits the CONSUMER. The managed trade we have now benefits the BIG CORPORATE ELITES, AND takes jobs away. THIS IS NOT FREE TRADE. I mean, people are arguing to "keep what we have".. tell that to the Auto workers in Michigan, or those losing jobs to China. As our dollar crumbles and businesses are clamouring overseas to get product.. you all are supporting that.

    You are all missing the true point of FREE TRADE = American Consumers.
    You are all missing the true point of the devlauation of the dollar = JOBS GO OVERSEAS.

    RON PAUL is the shiznit!

    I was listening to George Putnam of CRNI radio (talk-back). He had on a guest Josiah Ryan from http://www.crosswalk.com/news/11562149/, very interesting.

    George spoke very highly of Ron Paul and his integrity as one of the most honest men in Washington along with Tom Tancrado and Duncan Hunter.

    Paul is highly respected for protecting the U.S. Constitution and his love of country; he is not in this for himself but for U.S.

    He mentioned that Americans long for those three men as leaders and I agree.
