Republican presidential polling asterisk and fake libertarian Rand Paul says it would be a mistake to prohibit immigration based on religion but he'd also like you to know that he proposed pretty much the same thing.
"I think it’s a mistake to base immigration or moratoriums based on religion," Paul said. "But you know, I’ve called for something similar, which is a moratorium based on high risk." [...]
"And so we have examined where the high risk of terrorism comes from and it’s about 34 countries," he continued in the radio interview. "And I would put a pause on all immigration from those 34 countries.”
Not coincidentally, the list of 34 countries Rand son of Ron has envisioned consists of predominantly Muslim countries.
You say 'to-may-toe' and I say 'to-mah-toe,' but both policies would effectively achieve the same thing. With a wink and a nod, Rand Paul acknowledges this.
I don't believe France made Rand Paul's list even though the Paris attackers were French citizens.
