Jeb Bush speaks out against Ariz. law
The Politicio ^ | April 27, 2010 | Jonathan Martin

Posted on 04/27/2010 8:05:34 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is speaking out against the new hard-line immigration law in Arizona, becoming the first prominent national Republican to do so.

"I think it creates unintended consequences," he said in a telephone interview with POLITICO Tuesday. "It's difficult for me to imagine how you're going to enforce this law. It places a significant burden on local law enforcement and you have civil liberties issues that are significant as well."

Most hispanic citizens in AZ support the law.

Its not about race.

Anyone who opposes this is an enemy of America.

Rubio is also a Bush puppet. I guess Jeb and Rubio did not realize the AZ law is the SAME as federal law. No more Bushes and no Rubio. Please Tea Party - find a candidate for FL.

Jeb is married to a Mexican and the Bush's have deep ties to Mexico. Probably why Geo. W. was for amnesty. They just can't seem to get their minds around the unintended consequences of illegals.

However, Jeb has no trouble seeing the unintended consequences of a law made in a desperate bid to keep Arizonians safe and to keep their law enforcement, hospitals, all social services, from going broke.

This is Politico. They HAD to find a Repub to muddy the waters.

I have to agree. Does Jeb saying this really surprise anyone? I know it doesn’t me, I remember the last immigration bill, and how contentious it was. We were called a lot of names for opposing it too. That whole episode was very enlightening, and extremely disappointing.

This law gives law enforcement the legal backing to do what they have been trying to do for years.

Jeb Bush, the entire Bush family actually, is wrong on this issue. They resort every time to impugning our decency as human beings. There is no Constitution, there are no laws, there is no national interest. And they are just wrong.

Is this a time machine? Or a bad dream? Arizona illegals will flee the state when they see democrats on TV talking about the police state,

Sending back 30 million illegals sounds like an impossible task, but so did digging the Panama Canal. We really need an effective border fence to make sure we cut off the flow.

I agree. This jerk swore an oath to support and protect the Consititution and the LAWS of the United States.

Why do so many legislators believe in selective law enforecement?

I wonder if this clown endorses rapists and murderers skipping jail time.

They started fleeing TN 4 years ago when beer purchases REQUIRED a state approved ID, regardless of age. (They have since changed it to visual confirmation but the illegals left during the interim).

Thanks. I must be one of the last holdouts hoping that Jeb would turn out to be something more than he is.

To me, this is a litmus test. Any politician who wants my respect had better be able to articulate why Arizona is right. Because they are right. Any politician who isn’t prepared to defend Arizona isn’t going to defend rule of law, they aren’t going to defend the constitutional republic, and they don’t have any business being in public life.

I have family in law enforcement who would tell me about having illegals in their jail that they would try to turn over to Immigration, and Immigration wouldn’t take them. They’d finally have to turn them loose.

In Maryland they wrote a loophole in the law for drivers licences for illegals (but not deadbeat Dads.) When RealID got passed at federal level, the Democrat governor proposed a special drivers license for those with no documentation.

“I don’t want any more of the Bush clan in the White House.”

Agreed. In 12 years that family has undone the political gains and accomplishments of three generations of conservatives.

Unhyphenated conservatives.

I second that and raise it to STFU Jeb Bush!!! It seems the only time you really hear anything the Bush clan (HW, GW or Jeb) is when they are pandering or appeasing the liberals & socialist demoRATs, or when they're attacking conservatives.

The Bush family hasn't done what is best for our country's sovereignty, only ensuring the globalist goal of open borders, siphoning our nation's resourcs (redistribution), so that we are no better than a third world nation. And now we have a clown in office who has accelerated the process along with sucking up to the muslim nations and rejecting our true heritage.
