rand paulIn the aftermath of the Chattanooga shooting in which four Marines were killed on military sites, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul wants to restrict immigration from Muslim countries.

I think there does need to be heightened security. Nobody has a right to come to America, so this isn’t something that we can say ‘oh their rights are being violated.’”
