Posted on 04/06/2014 11:18:45 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush discussing immigration reform on Fox News this Sunday:
"I'm going to say this and it will be on tape, and so be it. The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn't come legally, they come to our country because their family's dad who loves their children was worried that their children didn't have food on the table, and they wanted to make sure their family was intact. And they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it's not a felony. it's kind of -- it's a -- it's an act of love. It's an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that's a different kind of crime that should be, there should be a price paid, but it shouldn't be -- it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families. And the idea that we're not going to fix this but with with comprehensive reform ends up trapping these people, when they could make a great contribution for their own their families but also for us.
So I think we need to get beyond the harsh political rhetoric to a better place. The great number of people who come to this country come because they have no opportunities in other places. They may love their country, but they come here because they want to provide for their families. And they can make a contribution to our country if we actually organized ourselves in a better way."

“Stay out of the Bushes!”
Invading America illegally is an Act of love?
More like rape, IMO.
HEY! Hurry!! Let’s all watch Jebbie jump over the shark.
Oops. Hope that shark’s not hungry.
Come on Jim,
Don’t beat around the Bush’s
Tell us what you really think!!
In Politics, every evil act is justified by some phony good. “Stay out of the Bushes!”
I totally understand that.
But there is a reason we have borders. Mexico has borders which they enforce, and so does every other country on earth.
We have locks on doors and fences with no trespassing signs, and we have borders for a reason. I will not vote for anyone who doesn't know that and understand it.
I heard him say this and the first thing out of my mouth was OY VEY..Hey Jeb, maybe murder is an “Act of love” too..or how about robbery, after all, robbers need money, that’s probably an act of love too right
Yo, J.E.B., you think terrorists coming into this country through Mexico are also doing so out of love?
Video at link: DHS: Terrorists Enter U.S. From Mexico From Time to Time
Obonics to English translation: Terrorists Enter U.S. From Mexico Every Day.
Who cannot come “Legally” unless they committed a crime here before? Get to the back of the line!!
Spoken like a true liberal globalist neocon. No thanks.
:) And so it begins.
The job he takes from an American trying to put food on his families table, is that an act of love?
Americans are now the second class citizens, stand up to this nonsense.
And some people would like to see him as President.
Maybe the biggest problem facing our country today, and Jeb Bush cares not. Good to know. I will never, ever vote for any candidate not interested in closing our borders or prosecuting/evicting foreign invading scumbags.
Hey Jeb. Can you at least make it look like you’re not trying to screw over Americans by demanding some sort of compensation from Mexico?
What a stupid comment.
Supporting Jeb Bush:
An act of lunacy
Jeb is an idiot. His “act of love” by illegals has cost us dearly in blood and treasure.
Read my lips...NO NEW BUSHES!
Hillary would crush him like a bug. Not that it makes any difference whether he wins or Hillary does.
Being against illegal immigration is an act of commitment and love to family and country.
Jeb! You moron! Isn't this the Mexican government's problem? Why throw it on the backs of the American taxpayers? You idiot! A REAL act of love would be sending them back to their own country and telling them to take it up with THEIR government! Jerk! I am very offended when these illegal invaders are out protesting in OUR streets and TELLING US how it's gonna be. They need to go home and tell it to their own government.
I'm sure they'd be dead from lead poisoning before their loving feet ever touched the ground.
Tens of thousands of AMERICANS have been killed by illegals since 9/11/2001...a real ‘act of love’ there, fat boy. Can’t wait until you meet Terri in the next world, fat boy...even if only for a few seconds.
This just makes me furious.
Then why the hell have US borders at all? Due to “LOVE”, let’s bring in every Tom ,Dick and Harry as well as all of those who would seek to do us harm.
We are pretty much there already.
Wake up people.
What is wrong with these people? Are they going to let all crime go unpunished? We were a nation of laws but not any more. It is not the country from my childhood and that is a shame.
It’s an act of theft, dumbass.
I agree that crossing the US/Mexico border for a better life is an act of love....so out of love for my Country and a desire for a better life for all my fellow Americans, would you please cross the border into Mexico and take your family with you?
Liberalh8ter <====that means YOU, Jeb.
You just watch, Bush will be the 2016 nominee, you know its gonna happen..this is why Jeb is kissing so many illegal alien ass, for the votes
And no more Clintons!
Sometimes I say the craziest things.
That’s Just NASTY.
An “Act of Love”?
Act of Love? Yeah they love our money, our welfare, our foodstamps, our govt apartments, our free healthcare, our schools, our easily corruptible politicians.
It may be an act of love to provide for their families.
It may be an act of love of the opportunity we offer.
It may be an act of love of the freedom we offer.
It may be an act of love of a lot of things,
It is not an act of love for this country.
It is not an act of love for the people of the US.
It is not an act of love for our system of government.
If it was, they would have entered legally and been
productive citizens, assimilating and becoming one
with our polis, learning our language and educating
their children in the value of our way of life.
A Bush Clinton election will end with the same result as the last one.
If we're going down as a nation anyway, it might as well be with a dem president.
Please. No more Bushes. How about a REAL conservative?
Yeah they love the freebies...
“they crossed the border because they had no other means to” get freebies but from the US...
Mexico doesn’t have that lovely system...
“... crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family.”
1. Really?? I thought Mexico had a lower unemployment rate than the US.
2. Really?? Do you really support bringing in illegal workers to take the jobs away from the unemployed American??
My act of love for my Country: defend her borders, language, and culture from traitors like Jeb Bush.
Is this the woman who got caught shoplifting?
Jeb, you need to keep your doors unlocked and open, and put up signs directing the way to your house. After all, it’s only an “act of love” to allow illegal invaders, who may be disease carriers or criminals, to stay at your house at their own will, no matter what rules you’ve practiced over the years for your own friends and family.
Do it, or shut up.
Mexico is not so poor. It is the 13th richest nation. They need better wealth distribution there instead of invading America.
Jeb Bush is staking out his position here, he is bold and stupid on immigration and he will not win the Republican nomination due to this and other factor.
Way to stab ANY notion of “President” Jebbie
You blue bloods don’t have a clue how ordinary live and what we have to put up with. Typically, it’s all about “you” and your thrist for power and ego.
I have worked with illegals in some labor temp jobs and have found them to be honest and hard working. But the love needs to be for our citizens first! And our weakling government needs to put pressure on the Mexican gov. To reform and get those jobs rolling for their own people!
