The Daily Quote

“…Republicans leading the pack on [the] immigration reform train aren’t backing off. They’re finding reasons to stay on board. Doing nothing is not an option, they say. ‘What I tell people is that if you put your head in the sand and say we don’t want anything done, that you’re acknowledging that you just want what we have,’ [Sen. Rand] Paul [R-KY] told reporters at the Capitol. ‘We have 11 million people who’ve come in here illegally over — I don’t know, the last couple of decades. If we do nothing, another 11 million comes, so I mean, doing nothing I think is really not a great answer.’”
