Rand Paul Teams Up with Michael Bloomberg Group to Discuss Amnesty
On Wednesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) will join a monthly meeting on immigration that is hosted by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's pro-amnesty Partnership for a New American Economy and Grover Norquist.
Paul, a potential 2016 GOP presidential contender, will reportedly "discuss the need for immigration reform," according to the Wall Street Journal.
Tea Party Express head Sal Russo was the first participant last month in the monthly event that hopes to push Congress to pass amnesty legislation this year.
Earlier this year at the University of Chicago, Paul told David Axelrod, the director of the school's Institute for Politics, that he would "expand the work visa program to include" all of the country's illegal immigrants. Paul also told students at Harvard University that amnesty legislation could pass Congress this year.
His lurch to the left still did not appease Hispanic groups, though. They called him "offensive" after he supported allowing all of the country's illegal immigrants to remain in the country.
