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?

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.
