Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul said Tuesday that President Trump’s proposed wall along the southern border is not the best solution to curbing illegal immigration.

“I don’t like walls. I don’t want to wall people in and wall people out,” Paul said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“I don’t want free, open borders either,” he continued. “I think you have to remove the incentives for people to come.”

Paul, a former congressman from Texas, argued that welfare programs and an easy path to citizenship entice immigrants to come to the U.S. He suggested that removing those incentives would be a more effective deterrent to illegal immigration.

    Stop paying our Senators until they do their job to secure our borders. Meanwhile build that Wall.

    Too much common sense because Paul was mum on this in office. Lawmakers would obey the law to do this. So do Mandatory E-Vererfie . Save America

    Trump needs to do exactly just that, Donald Trump doesn’t even so much as mention the word mandatory e-verify since he’s been in office!!!

    Mandatory E-verify is included in President Trump’s 2019 budget. The people coming here illegally will only understand a deterrent because anything is better than the places they’re coming from.

      Yes it is, but that is for the existing program. Does not make it mandatory for entire country. Only federal contractors, and employers in some states are required to use it. Nothing to improve it either.

    It would help but not with the drug traffickers and human trafficking.

    It wouldn’t all stop!! Use your head people! They’re criminals, if they’re not given money, they’ll take it, in any manner that they can!! That could be even more dangerous!!! It has to be a wall to save our people, to save the children!!! Stop thinking so foolish!!!!

      A wall will not stop the nearly 50% of illegals who over stay a visa. Do you honestly think all illegals come across the southern border? Currently there are illegals from nearly every country. Why do they over stay a visa? Jobs. Sure Everify won’t stop the hardened Hispanic criminal element. But a wall won’t stop criminal elements from China, Japan, the ME, Eastern Europe and Britain. They fly in.
      Most of illegals stay for jobs. Then if not immediately caught, they produce anchor babies who then qualify for welfare.
      Illegal immigration solutions need to be multi-faceted. A wall will stop some, Everify with enforcement will stop even more. Enforcement of current laws which thus far has been neglected would have stopped the border situation before it got this bad. If foreigners thought it was nearly impossible to get a job, they would not stay and not try to cross. Mandatory Everify with enforcement would scare employers to rid themselves of illegal labor. If illegals who are here cannot be employed and have no American children who could subsidize them with welfare, they would be forced to leave. Those with children would be scared to get welfare, because immigration laws were being enforced.

    Don’t you think it’s a little late for that now that both California and New York have promised illegal aliens free health care along with all their other freebies ? They are like democrats. Once they get on the “free” train we will never get them off. They don’t need A job !!!

    The ‘wall’, whatever form it takes will be effective, ask Israel. The incentives must also be removed, eVerify and welfare programs are only some. The 14th Amendment must also be interpreted correctly, babies born from illegals do not receive automatic citizenship.
