A caller from Lubbock, Texas, on Friday told conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh that some illegal immigrants in his area don’t want amnesty because it means federal income tax and fiercer competition for cheap labor.

“Today I went out and was doing some ag’ work on some of the farms out here and got to talking to some of these guys, asking them about what they think about this.

…”I just couldn’t go along with it,” he said, “and I’m fearful that […] we’ll still have significant illegal immigration with this bill.”

As for whether or not the bill could be fixed and then pass in the House, Paul hedged, replying with uncertainty. The problem, he contended, is that the current bill in the Senate gives the president veto power and the authority to make the ultimate decision – one that Paul said should be retained by Congress.
