This is not the first time that Paul has joined RINOs and Democrats to push back against Trump’s secure border policies. He voted with the “America Last” caucus in March in a failed attempt to block Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border back:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), while positioning himself as President Trump’s top ally on foreign policy, has become a thorn in Trump’s side on immigration. He announced yesterday that he will join RINO Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) to block Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

“I can’t vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress,” Paul said according to the Bowling Green Daily News.

“We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing,” he added.

While Paul is arguably Trump’s greatest ally in the Senate on the issue of foreign policy, Paul is often an opponent of the President on the issue of immigration. Paul filed the BELIEVE Act to open up the flood gates for third-world foreign labor earlier this year.

Paul introduced the legislation devised by the CATO Institute, the open borders think-tank bankrolled by the globalist Koch Network, that would squeeze American-born workers out of the job market or lower their wages substantially.

“The BELIEVE Act would do more to move the United States toward a merit-based system than any other legislation introduced this congress. No legislation since the 2013 immigration reform bill that passed the Senate would increase skilled immigration more than this bill,” CATO analyst David Bier wrote about the legislation.

“A fourfold increase in employment-based permanent immigration would bring the United States more in line with the Canadian system,” Bier added.

Paul’s legislation would nearly double the limit on green cards granted to employment-based immigrants while exempting spouses and young children from that limit. It would also end all per-country limits to employment-based immigrants applying for green cards, and exempt so-called “shortage occupations” from green card limits completely.

The BELIEVE Act may even be worse than legislation proposed by libertarian Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) to create a green card free-for-all for Indian nationals and provide a subsidy for Big Tech firms that have abused immigration law for years. That legislation was blocked last week on the Senate floor by ‘America First’ Sen. David Purdue (R-GA)

Paul has allied himself with the enemies of the President on the immigration issue, a move that could cost him dearly as the Republican Party moves in a more nationalist direction.
