Rand Paul mum on Trump’s immigration stance

“I’ve tried to talk about what my plan is for immigration so I don’t get trapped into talking about what 20 other people are saying about immigration,” Paul told reporters after a meeting with about 25 constituents here arranged by his U.S. Senate office.

Trump, the billionaire real estate investor and television personality, said during the launch of his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination last month that undocumented immigrants crossing the border from Mexico were “people that have lots of problems … They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”…

But Paul would give no opinion on Trump’s comments, despite repeated questions Monday. Asked whether he thought that Trump’s comments damage the Republican Party, Paul said, “I’ve got to stick with my message” rather than comment on messages of the many others seeking his party’s 2016 presidential nomination.
