As a libertarian

As a libertarian, immigration was one of the few issues where I parted ways with Ron Paul. It was not enough for me not to support him obviously. I still am not a fan of birthright citizenship, but I am pretty favorable to the idea of open borders, because if we are a truly free country, individuals should be free to come and go as they wish.

That being said, I applaud Rand Paul's willingness to come up with a compromise on this and mandatory sentences for drug offenders. I think this is a very libertarian thing to do, and I look forward to his next four years.
