If a U.S. senator and members of an advocacy group meet in a public library for a panel discussion on immigration reform, the meeting ought to be open to anyone who wants to sit and listen. Right?
That would make sense, but that’s not what happened last week in Lexington when Sen. Rand Paul, a Bowling Green Republican, spoke at a panel discussion with the Office of the Immigrant, Solidarity and Information. News reporters and photographers were turned away. The discussion was apparently open to anyone else.
