    Paul, who a week ago won the GOP primary, told a Russian TV station in a clip circulating on political Web sites Friday that he wants to block citizenship to those children.

    "We're the only country I know that allows people to come in illegally, have a baby, and then that baby becomes a citizen," Paul told RT, an English-language station, shortly after his win over GOP establishment candidate Trey Grayson. "And I think that should stop also."

    Legislation dubbed the Birthright Citizenship Act was introduced in the House last year seeking to prevent citizenship to babies born to illegal immigrants even though the 14th Amendment to the Constitution guarantees citizenship to everyone born in the U.S. More than 90 lawmakers signed on as co-sponsors.

    Paul told the TV station that partisan politics may be at play in not stopping illegal immigration.

    "I'm not opposed to letting people come in and work and labor in our country," Paul said. "But I think what we should do is we shouldn't provide an easy route to citizenship. A lot of this is about demographics. If you look at new immigrants from Mexico, they register three to one Democrat, so the Democratic Party is for easy citizenship and allowing them to vote. I think we need to address that."

    Immigration advocates criticized Paul's stand on Friday as immoral.

    "That's a very extremist position," said Manuel Perez-Rocha, a spokesman for the liberal Washington-based Institute for Policy Studies. "It comes at a very bad moment in history because it tends to polarize debate on immigration when it's most needed that both parties come to their senses so they can have serious discussion on the subject. It's immoral. It lacks compassion."

    Campaign chairman David Adams said Friday that Paul stands behind his statements

  3. If you look at new immigrants from Mexico, they register three to one Democrat

  4. Apparently he appears to be ok with the natural born citizenship issue if they actually voted republican.

    He's obviously pandering to his base.

    No one running for political office can be this stupid unless he knows he's dealing with neanderthal type brains and really wants the message to be clear to his voter base.

    Note he is also for "smaller govt." except for Medicare.

    you see, his doctors practice depends on medicare.

    So the truth is he is just another regular corrupt republican politician.

    This guy is McCains "Joe the plumber" with some education.

    I wonder if he faked his doctors licensing certificate. Would not put it past these people.
  5. i think its a good idea change that law. the draw has to be irresistible to illegals. sneak in and you get free health care for your baby and you guarantee him a birthwrite. i would risk my life for that if i were a mother.
  6. He's another hypocrite from the party of hypocrites
  7. He and his father are the ultimate defenders of the Constitution.While there are parts of the Constitution that is up for debate,the 14th amendment isnt

    Rand Paul goes down in November to the very popular Kentucky AG Jack Conway (D).
  9. Which parts of the constitution are up for debate?

  10. A member of Rand's base...
