Ron Paul has also said the problem is the welfare state...

...not the immigrants.

"It's important to note that the greatest resentment [regarding immigration] comes from government-mandated free services and a government created unemployment crisis. Fix these two problems and finding a scapegoat for our economic crisis wouldn't be necessary.

A free and prosperous economy always looks for labor; immigrant workers would be needed and welcomed. This need could be managed by a generous guest worker program, not by illegal immigrants receiving benefits for the family and securing an easy route to permanent citizenship and thus becoming pawns of partisan political interests...

Stop all federal mandates on the states to provide free education and medical care for illegal immigrants."
