It’s good to see that there’s at least one candidate seeking the Republican nomination who believes in a sensible immigration policy:

Yet another reason (as if we needed one) to be excited about the candidacy of Ron Paul. An immigration policy that treats the external threat posed by the applicant’s country of origin as reason to deny entry to the United States would not only make America safer, but, in doing so, it would decrease, rather than increase, the pressure to spill American blood and treasure overseas.
And it would inevitably result in public debate over which countries should be on the list—which might finally mean an end to the silence about the Saudi regime’s quiet support for Islamic terrorism.
This is a brilliant move by a brilliant man, who just confirmed (as if he needed to) his Old Right credentials. Let’s defend America at the best place we can: her borders.
