Top 5 Ways Gary Johnson is More Libertarian Than Ron Paul

3. Immigration and Border Security

Gov. Johnson has been very vocal on his support for immigration. A pillar of his campaign has been decrying the anti-immigrant sentiment of many in the GOP and making fun of the idea of a border wall that most agree will do little to curb illegal immigration. He has also been a longtime proponent of overhauling our immigration system and in doing so bringing down illegal immigration.

Ron Paul on the other hand has taken a much more conservative and less libertarian stance. While he is no Trump, Paul did vote for the Secure Fence Act of 2006 and has spoken out against birthright citizenship, even calling for a Constitutional Amendment to end it. He also served as an adviser to the staunchly anti-immigration Pat Buchanan in his 1992 presidential campaign.
