Sen. Rand Paul Immigration Proposal Will Eliminate Pathway to Citizenship

Rand Paul (R-KY) will offer several amendments to the hotly contested immigration bill. "Paul’s most ambitious proposal would eliminate the pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants and lift the caps on guest workers."

One of Paul's proposals will provide immigrant workers to employers "who can demonstrate need" but the rest of the workers would have to apply for legal permanent residency through existing channels. Another amendment would give Congress the authority, not the Department of Homeland Security, to determine if the border is secure.
