Neocon Jennifer Rubin: Rand is a Fraud on Immigration

Sadly, she is correct:
 Into the Rubio-Cruz scuffle on immigration wades Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), maybe the only senator less consistent than Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). He’s a libertarianish conservative and has heavily courted Silicon Valley, for whom legal immigration is an economic necessity. When push came to shove, however, Paul voted against the Gang of Eight. 
Now he declares, “Without question both [Marco] Rubio and Cruz have been for amnesty, so it’s kind of a silly debate. The amendment that Cruz put forward at the time — no one understood it to be a poison pill, it was not advocated or put forward as a poison pill, it was an advocacy for legalization and normalization.”
But wait, Paul was pretty close to the Gang of Eight bill himself...
