PAUL: “I HAVEN’T SEEN ANY CHRISTIANS OR JEWS DRAGGING PEOPLE OF THE ISLAMIC FAITH THROUGH THE STREETS”
On Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on Sean Hannity’s radio show, and commented on the Charlie Hebdo shootings. “This barbarous aberration of a religion is opposed to the free flow of ideas,” Paul said. He said that “civilized Islam” needs to speak out and condemn the attacks.
Even though the suspected attackers still at large were reportedly born in France, Paul soon brought up immigration policy, suggesting, “You’ve got to secure your country. And that means maybe that every Muslim immigrant that wishes to come to France shouldn’t have an open door to come.” He continued: “It’s also my concern here. I think our border is a danger to attack, as well as our student visa program. Several of the attackers on 9/11 were here on student visas they had overstayed.”
