Rand Paul Can Run, But He Can’t Hide From Latino Voters in 2016Submitted by ILoveLiberty on Sun, 08/10/2014 - 02:18
Interesting that the DREAMers also happen to write for Politico:
"Last Sunday in Iowa, the two of us had the opportunity to meet Rep. Steve King of Iowa and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky. After we identified ourselves as “DREAMers”— undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children — what we intended to be a civil, serious discussion turned into a tense confrontation with King.
That tense confrontation became a viral Internet sensation when Paul fled the scene in the middle of eating a hamburger. Here’s the whole story....
What happened next is what went viral: Paul leaned down to take a hungry bite of his burger, and, upon hearing Erika say she was a DREAMer, either choked or froze for a moment as the reality of what was unfolding struck him.
“Time to go,” Paul’s aide seemed to signal, and the senator was off. He grabbed his beer, got up quickly and did not even say goodbye to King. The burger? Abandoned, half-eaten. I guess Paul was worried about being seen with two undocumented immigrants—afraid to be seen acknowledging our humanity, perhaps."
