Title: Texas Libertarian Ron Paul: We don’t need Trump’s border wall to stop illegal immigration

Points

  • President Donald Trump doesn’t need a wall to stop undocumented immigration, says former presidential candidate and Libertarian Ron Paul.
  • Instead, he should remove incentives for coming to America, argues Paul, former congressman from the border state of Texas.
  • Trump is expected to describe what he calls a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border in a prime-time address to the nation Tuesday night.

    President Donald Trump doesn’t need a wall to stop undocumented immigration along the U.S. southern border, three-time presidential candidate and well-known Libertarian Ron Paul told CNBC on Tuesday.

    Instead, the Trump administration should remove incentives for coming to America, said Paul, who also served 12 terms as a U.S. congressman from Texas, a state that shares 1,254 miles of a common border with Mexico.

    In previous negotiations with Trump, Democrats had agreed to some border wall funding as part of an ultimately scuttled deal to protect the so-called Dreamers, people who were illegally brought to the U.S. as children.

    “I don’t like walls,” Paul added. “I don’t want to wall people in and wall people out.”

    The White House was not immediately available to respond to CNBC’s request for comment on Paul’s remarks.

    Paul joined “Squawk Box ” as the partial government shutdown entered its 18th day due to a stalemate between Trump and Democrats who now control the House. The president has demanded that any deal to end the shutdown must include funds toward the construction of a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. Democrats have refused to allocate any money for a wall.

    Trump, whose administration has been accused of using false statistics and dubious claims to push for a wall, is expected to describe what he calls a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border in a prime-time address to the nation Tuesday night.

    There is doubt among Democrats that a wall would do much to solve the issue of illegal immigration, and data from the Center for Migration Studies, a New York-based think tank, show only one-third of recent undocumented immigrants came through the southern border.

    Still, Trump has threatened that he could circumvent Congress by declaring a national emergency and using the military to construct a wall.

    Republican Sen. Rand Paul from Kentucky, son of Ron Paul, has said he would support a wall-funding compromise to open the government. Rand Paul said recently that he’d support funding for Trump’s wall if budget cuts were made elsewhere. He has suggested that pulling American troops out of Afghanistan could more than pay for the wall.

    Meantime, Ron Paul said the partial government shutdown is not too significant “in the grand scheme of things” just “another thing that can stir up trouble and people react to it.” Paul, a longtime critic of the Federal Reserve, blamed the central bank’s easy money policies since the 2008 financial crisis for creating the conditions for what he says is a coming U.S. economic recession.

    Paul, who practiced medicine before being elected to Congress, unsuccessfully ran for president three times, first on the Libertarian Party ticket and two more times as a Republican.

I dare say that even on a bad day, his intelligence and common sense is light years ahead of yours.

Ron Paul is a retard

He's correct, of course.

Stop giving away free stuff and they will have no reason to come here any more.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

They will have less of a reason. But they still have the reason of a job.

Were you purposefully lying or did you just not think it out?

Trump commutes sentence of kosher meatpacking executive Sholom Rubashkin

they still have the reason of a job.

President Trump pardoned a guy who employes 389 illegal aliens in his meat packing plant.

He's encouraging people to employ illegal aliens by doing that. Thus he's encouraging the invasion of the USA. He's a reconquista republican, like Ronald Reagan.

Refuses to obey his oath of office to protect the States against invasion, and enforce the US constitution and the rule of law. Hillary could have done that too.

Texas Libertarian Ron Paul: We don’t need Trump’s border wall to stop illegal immigration

Well, we don't have a wall now and we have large numbers of illegals. What have we got to lose?

Actually you do. With out a wall neocons and demoncrats will vacate the border and it will be just a long walk from Mexihole to Americahole.

Build the damn wall! If they did not work no one would put up fence/walls. By putting up the wall you cut down on the everyday expense of monitoring the wall for criminals.

I say build a wall or there will be no country left to save. Everything else is fluff!
