Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a talked-about candidate for the White House in 2016, gave an interview over the weekend in which he bluntly said illegal immigrants are only trying to better themselves and should not be treated as felons.

We already have a President who does that.
Go away Jeb....far away. FUJB!
Hey repubs, wanna make sure that I (and many many others like me) don’t vote?
Go ahead, dare ya!
I was in WalMart yesterday, as I am 2-3 times a week. I got behind a Mexican lady, older, better with her English than most of them - been here a long long time, but NOT native to this country.
She had a cart of food which she had separated from another cart which did not have food in it. She paid for the food with an EBT card. She then pulled a brand new, new 100 bill out to pay for the other crap she bought that she couldn’t pawn off on us.
She was dressed really nice, elaborate gold brocade shirt, nice designer slacks, shoes, etc. Nice accessories, leather and gaudy gold adorned.
Followed her out to her land yacht parked in the nearest handicapped slot out front. Not one damned thing wrong with here. Of course she did it all out of love. Love of theft.
Shut up, Jeb. Just because you live with a Mexican immigrant doesn’t mean we have to.
I also will not even bother to vote for a RINO. Why would I vote for a RINO to do the same things to the country that the democrats are doing; then have the democrats blame a republican?
Bank robbers are also only trying to better themselves by getting cash that they otherwise couldn’t obtain. Yet, because the method they chose to better themselves happens to be AGAINST THE LAW, we consider them FELONS.
When somebody breaks into your house, makes themselves at home to your food and your possessions, takes on your identity and then takes access to your money, it should be a felony.
I hate Jeb Bush. NO MORE BUSHES. NO MORE CLINTONS.
How dare you withhold your vote from a party that considers you a pain in the ass and could care less about the issues important to you. Purist!
Saying illegal immigration would be an “act of love” is sophistry in the extreme. Whether it is defined as a felony or not, the practice certainly flies in the face of any orderly and lawful administration of the admission of foreign nationals to the United States.
Smuggling goods into another country, in contravention of agreed trade agreements, is clearly illegal and held to be so by every organized government in the world. If the “goods” smuggled in are the labor services of the illegal immigrant, it is in no way different from the smuggling in of firearms or perfumes.
Perhaps more immigrants should be admitted than are now allowed into the territory once known as “the United States of America”. But it should be known WHO they are, and exactly why they are here. In any instance, they are admitted only on the condition they obey the set of laws that apply in THIS country, they are not allowed to also import their own code of legal jurisprudence or customs that may prove to be totally illegal in this country.
Well, people in FL and TX must think differently than we! The seem to be permanent bush-bots.
I plan in TX this year to leave the U.S. Senate race and the land commissioner race blank and vote for all other Republican candidates on the ballot. So I can’t use the master oval. I will be an “undervote” for Cornball and George P.
Will somebody sit this fool down and gently explain that we respect the job he did as Florida’s governor but his positions are those of LaRaza and the Teachers Unions not ours.
Try being illegal in any other country and see what happens. Here in Australia we have camps where they go to get processed out. http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/international/australias-pacific-asylum-seeker-camps-to-cost-2-billion/
Man, the Bushes keep getting worse.
Bank robbers are only trying to better themselves too. So are tax evaders. Should they get a pass too?
“Has disqualified himself to be President as he is saying he will disregard the law.”
Reagan dealt with the illegal problem by signing onto a one time amnesty program with the promise of strict border enforcement.
Reagan’s successor George H.W. Bush ignored the border enforcement provisions and allowed millions of illegals to stream in during his 4 years of office. Bill Clinton followed his lead. The son George W. Bush continued the lax enforcement of the law, fought building a fence, and tried to give a pathway to citizenship (amnesty) to the illegals already in country.
Like many members of the ruling elites the Bush family is globalist in its outlook. They all believe in open borders, free trade, and military intervention around the world. They are also corporatists, committed to advancing the interests of multinational corporations and too big to fail banks. The plight of small business or struggling middle class taxpayers is not part of their big picture.
Anyone who votes for Jeb Bush is not voting for individual liberty as understood by the founding fathers. A vote for any Bush is a vote for open borders and amnesty, one sided free trade, crony capitalism, and more foreign wars.
“Man, the Bushes keep getting worse.”
Thats the trouble with RINOs, they keep drifting left.
Keep digging, Jeb. Keep digging hard.
Why can’t they better their OWN country before they come here to better themselves in ours?
Why would anyone think that people who are unable to better their own countries will be able to contribute anything HERE to better THIS country??
We are importing weak, uneducated, non-courageous, dependent people who would rather escape, rather run, rather leave behind their own family members and their own country to “better” themselves. These are not a people who can think or find solutions to problems. These are people who are not willing to fight. These are people who want to TAKE.
I think we can do without that and that WE, as a nation, can find “better” people to import if we try.
“All you neeed is love DADADA’
Those Bush’s are so compassionate.
“She paid for the food with an EBT card. She then pulled a brand new, new 100 bill out to pay for the other crap she bought that she couldnt pawn off on us.”
The last thing we need in this country are more people who dont mind living on the dole. Even worse are the ones who shouldnt be here in the first place.
If illegal immigration is an act of love, so is rape.
I’m only trying to better myself if I move into your mansion, Jeb. Send my children to Harvard when they weren’t accepted. Work out at the gym I haven’t paid or. Drive with my license suspended. For love and betterment.
um.. yes it is a felony
Since I am well known to be overflowing with warmth and compassion for my fellow human beings, I will show my love for illegals by sending them back to their families.
See Jeb I can play “morally superior to you” too.
During a three-day span the first week of April, 50 criminal illegal immigrants were apprehended by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), according to a press release. The individuals were previously convicted of various charges including rape, sexual assault, possession of drugs, robbery, criminal trespassing, assault, and driving under the influence.
Confirming why I will never vote for him.
The arch-Globalist Bush Family has done more to ruin this country than any other group of people except their good pals, the Clintons.

“Will somebody sit this fool down and gently explain that we respect the job he did as Floridas governor but his positions are those of LaRaza and the Teachers Unions not ours.”
I absolutely agree with you and couldn’t have said it better.
Stay out da Bushes.
A large number of them would be felons if we bothered to book them when we caught them at the border, instead of just sending them back, and counting it as a deportation.
Bank robbers are only trying to make a better life for themselves - should they also not be treated like felons?
They are always trying to make you believe what they are doing is not illegal. It is. If they admit it, it is. That’s why they try to trump you when they say it is not illegal before you can say anything and that’s why they don’t admit it. Make them admit it and they can and will be made responsible for all their extortion. A little quid pro here.
Prison rape is not a felony, it’s an “act of love”.
We don’t need more out of work illiterates with a 2nd grade education that can’t even speak the language, Detroit is full of them!
A crime of passion is committed in the heat of the moment, not after thoughtful debate. Yes a felony is a felony.
Will we ever have another patriotic president who loves his own country?
I rarely agree with Jeb, but for once we're on the same page. Illegal immigrants should be stopped at the border so they never enter our country illegally and don't become felons. There is probably no better way to avoid being treated as a felon than to not commit felonies. We need to fix our legal immigration system so that those who want to come here, who have jobs waiting and are law-abiding, can come legally. We need to fix enforcement so there is no incentive to come here illegally. We need to put an end to these people being felons by eliminating both the opportunity and the incentive to commit that particular felony.

Actually, for a lot of them its worse than that. They come into our country leaving their families back in Mexico, take jobs away from our own citizens and then send the money they make to their families in Mexico where they will return ASAP after making their money in the good old USA and buy their haciendas back home in Mexico where they will live the good life.
Jebs kind of screwed up, I would say that illegal immigration is like the act of love between an adult and a twelve year old, you know more like rape.
So is not paying our taxes an “act of love”?
What about if it is easier to pay for food and shelter for our family if we skip paying taxes?
Jeb Bush the Bushie NWO checked pants moron needs to pull his head out of his arse...
“Human Resource Smuggling”
“Non-Union Labor Smuggling”
“Illegal Labor Smuggling”
Hmm, ask the next pro amnesty dem how they feel about “Non-Union Employment Labor Smuggling”?
Selling other people for sex, Nah, Man... it is an act of LOVE!
LOL! That figure personifies the open borders lobby better than anything!
You’re a pretty good reason why religion and politics don’t mix. Take your hate to your KKK site.
