Paul, GOP need to find clear policy

(Continued)

But Paul knows this isn’t about words; it’s about positions, and citizenship for illegal immigrants is an unpopular position among many in his party. That’s why Paul’s been so timid about discussing immigration in clear, unambiguous terms.

But leadership isn’t about telling followers what they want to hear. The truth is millions of undocumented immigrants are already here looking for work. They’re using our emergency services, public transit, hospitals and jails, whether we like it or not. A realistic, fair solution that lets them work legally — and pay taxes into local, state and federal treasuries — is something we should all agree on.
