  Rand Paul Blasts Obama Executive Actions, Cites Internment Camps “We shouldn’t allow that much power to gravitate to one individual.” Kentucky Senator Rand Paul slammed Obama’s executive actions on immigration Friday, noting that throughout history when one individual gains too much power, “egregious” actions are often taken.
