Candidate Review - Illegal Immigration - Ron Paul

Ron Paul is seen as the no-hope liberal in the race for the Republican nomination because he opposes the war. On a lot of issues, however, he's pretty conservative, and Immigration is no exception.

Basically he wants to make to build the fence (his terminology is "Physically secure our borders and coastlines" and I can't think of what else that could refer to), and he wants to ensure no amnesty.
No amnesty. Estimates suggest that 10 to 20 million people are in our country illegally. That’s a lot of people to reward for breaking our laws.
Ron Paul doesn't even really have the sop about rewarding Immigrants who come here legally. No, when it comes to Immigration, you can't really confuse Paul for a Democrat.
