"If you are looking at border security, and we’re going to have a secure border, then I’m not sure we need to change citizenship," Paul said while on a trip to Haiti this week. "Birthright citizenship is a beacon for the world. So is what we did for the Dreamers. Birthright citizenship — it is what it is. That's the way the law has been interpreted. But is it a good idea to do that with an open border? Probably not."
