Jeb Bush: Many illegal immigrants come out of an ‘act of love’(love ????)
Washington Post ^ | April 6, 2014 | Ed O'Keefe

Posted on 04/07/2014 6:32:58 AM PDT by sickoflibs

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.

The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannone Bream and portions of the event were later broadcast on the Fox News Channel.

Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made "a good effort" at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.

Mika (MSNBC) was quite impressed with Jeb's statements, he's her type of Republican.

Jeb is just another charter member of the GOP wing of the Democrat party.

One of N reasons (where N is a very large number) why this RINO idiot should be relegated to the bin O’losers.

Shove it, Bush.

I don’t know what the answer to this problem is. I do know that if all “illegals” were deported tomorrow, we would be in a huge mess for a long time.

Many of them truly do do the work that many Americans won’t do……..and certainly not for the amount of money they earn

Therefore, someone who robs a store at gunpoint because his children are hungry should be treated differently from someone who robs a store because he needs money for drugs. To the store owner being robbed, it makes no difference.

Yeah, they love money. Love of money is the root of all evil. Ergo, illegals are evil.

Next question...

Funny no other country in the world feels that way. There is a pastor from our area who visited his relatives in another country and cannot return to his church in America due to visa problems. He’s been there for a month.

AS SICKOFLIBS INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: There is a high correlation between (1) those calling for amnesty, and, (2) those calling for US military action in place after place around the world. The "Dreamers" are needed to liberate, occupy and rebuild Iran, Syria, Crimea, etc etc etc........

==============================================

Yet another indication of the pukes takeover of the GOPe.....kicking conservatives to the curb every chance they get.

IOW, Jeb is a tool of the neocons.....as was GWB. They already got Jeb duped like they duped GWB into pouring young blood and tax treasure, invading several countries of the pukes choosing.

“Many of them truly do do the work that many Americans won’t do……..and certainly not for the amount of money they earn”

The next generation is going to claim that they have been discriminated against and demand affirmative action and the jobs of your sons and daughters who will be picking fruit in California. Since the traditional middle class will no longer be apart of the political process they will pay for it. This whole argument of being let in to do the jobs others wont do is just setting this whole scheme up. Why cant they get jobs filled? Because they aren't paying enough. Bring in more third world immigrants and they will definitely not have to.

So, Jeb, if someone broke into your house, took the keys to your car, stole it and sold it on the black market in order to buy food for their family, 'as an act of love', you're good with that, right? By the way, they'll do it every week too - big family.

Does the Rule of Law mean anything?

“Many illegal immigrants come out of an ‘act of love”

With the exception of Obama’s daily idiocy, this is one of the most stupid statements made by a political figure since Hillary Clinton’s last appearance before congress.

What the heck does love for family have to do with US law, civil order, the US Constitution, fairness, national security, or anything else important to citizens?

Do we need another president who makes decisions on feelings rather than facts and law?

JEB: “Did you break our laws and come here illegally because you love your family?”

ILLEGAL: “Nope”

JEB: “Okay, you’re out of here.”

ILLEGAL: “I meant yes.”

JEB: Oh, that makes a difference. Now you can stay.”

I robbed my neighbor of his taxes. I crowded his hospitals, schools and I choked his government access and equity to government assistance and support. I injured he and his family - through rape, drunken driving, murder and theft of his personal property, and I brought disease to his community.

But I did it because of ‘an act of love.’

How’s that Jeb? - you effing moron.

Dear Jeb,

Thanks for sparing me the time I might have spent considering your candidacy for POTUS. That you only had to trim two letters from the acronym to describe yourself is indeed impressive!

Jeb Bush is just the next manifestation of the globalist oligarchs, sprung from the same root as his father and brothers. BUT he is, as most skilled liars do, telling the truth. There are a number of illegals who are doing the illegal shift out of love for family in poverty in Mexico.

That these illegals send billions back to Mexico every year is evidence of that. BUT they are a minority among a thuggish class of invaders and ol' dead-soul Jeb knows it.

The state protected murder of Terri Schiavo exposed Jeb Bush for the dead-soul he is. He hasn't changed, just added more skillful deception to his techniques of manipulation and lying.

I was told we have to vote GOP “No Matter What”. So I guess that those Freepers will be lining up to pull the lever once the uniparty ordains him as Candidate.

Oh...and condemning those of us that won’t kneel at that altar.

Says Jeb Bush, the guy who gave Hitlery Clinton the “Medal of Freedom” on the one year anniversary of the Benghazi terrorist attacks against the USA and subsequent murders of our US ambassador and Navy seals which Hitlery Clinton sat back and allowed to happen for which she should be arrested tried and convicted for criminal neglect. There are RINOs then there is Jeb Bush.

Jeb has “Geraldo Rivera Disease”.

The instant the subject of Mexicans, hispanics, immigration or illegals comes up he loses the ability to think rationally.

Jeb contracted the dreaded affliction back in Mexico as a 17 year old exchange student when he met the little Mexican girl he ended up marrying and bringing back to Texas.

Many of these GOPelites have been hanging around the Dems too long.

Now, they say anything and think it makes sense [to them]. Apparently, they think the voters are too stupid to understand.

Some of Jeb’s statements recently make about as little sense as many of Nancy Pelosi’s statements.

But, when you don’t stand for much, you will likely fall for anything. Beyond amnesty and Common Core, Jeb hasn’t taken up many national issues.

There are so many US citizens working at bare minimum wage right now because of those effers. You go to other countries like Australia where they don’t have a huge invasion problem, the minimum wage is like $16 an hour. Why? Competition. They don’t have all this cheap labor flooding the country while we do. That’s the real evil of illegals not to mention the fact that these mother effers get a lot of people killed because they are never checked out for criminal records.

I remember the term "act of love" being used as a euphemism for sex in Dr. Strangelove. People like Jeb Bush are "act of love"-ing the hell out of this country.

Shut down the border, have full tracking of those entering and leaving the country on visas so we know those who have overstayed even one day and then we might be able to talk about what to do with the illegals already here. You can't mop up puddles while a leaking pipe is still gushing and you can't fix illegal immigration without fixing the border. Every "immigration reform" proposal so far has been "amnesty now, border control... eventually". That would be stupid even if we hadn't been promised the exact same thing multiple times. We've been fooled too many times by that trick already.
