Breitbart's Big Government ^ | April 25, 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 04/27/2014 6:37:17 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has said that illegal immigration is like an "act of love" and promoted amnesty at a "Davos in the Desert" education conference in Arizona. Now, the potential 2016 GOP presidential contender has suggested that parts of America's immigration system should be more like Canada's.

Jeb Bush ✔ @JebBush

Canada has an economically driven immigration
system. Why can’t we fix our broken one?

Bush tweeted an article that discussed Canada's "express entry" immigration system that is set to be implemented in 2015. Canada will select immigrants who have skills that match those that employers need. Those immigrants who have a valid job offer will "receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence."(continued)

It would never be passed in the US. Dems would never support it. Skilled immigrants would be less likely to "need" government assistance, thus less likely to be illegal democrat voters.

When amnesty is given to everybody out of love, what happens then to others that want to come in after amnesty is given?

If it is unloving now to not let people in, why wont it still not be unloving to not let the next bunch in?

Just trying to follow the logic

Wouldn`t it be all the more loving to just not have borders, just let everybody in

Wow, Canada is NOT easy to get into.

I have a friend from grad school who applied for residency in Canada. He was a pharmacist in Eastern Europe and his wife worked at an oil company in management. She, too, had a degree.

Despite this, she wasn't allowed into Canada for YEARS with their two kids. He had to re-certify his pharmacist credentials, which took more than a year. He was ‘t ever able to get a job as a Financial Engineer, which is what he studied alongside me.

Canada is not the example I would use if trying to highlight easy immigration.

Politicians don't use fact-based logic. They can say "more like Canada" and be totally false, and still get their objective, which is to fool the people into thinking the instant idea/policy is a good one.

We live in "snowbird country" and get totally swarmed with Canucks during 'winter season'.............they ALL buy Americanese insurance and get all their stuff done here during the winter months; we locals just pray we don't need a doc appointment from Labor Day until Memorial Day (when they're gone under their six month rule).

'Tween the Canadians and our Mexican demographic, we're pretty much hosed in these parts................Thanks tons, Zer0.

I think that our immigration policy should be more like North Korea's emigration policy...if you try to get in without authorization granted in accordance with Federal *laws* currently in force,you get shot.

Canada is more or less unpopulated due to the climate and needs to attract workers. Is there any sensible reason to compare the USA with Canada?

Illegal immigration is NOT an immigration policy.

Jeb needs to have a conversation with Jamiel Shaw’s father, an honor student who was gunned down here in LA by an illegal alien, but in Jeb’s mind the shooter did it as an “Act of Love”

Jeb: 1. Don’t run for president and 2. If you like Canada so much, feel free to move there. 3.if you go there, shut up and stay out of our politics. We need real conservatives here and that’s definitely not you. Nd you can take your illegal Mexicans with you, too !

My brother had to wait three months to get a visa to Canada to work a temporary assignment for his company which lasted a little less than a year. They had to first prove that they'd made a bona fide effort and failed to find a resident of Canada to do the job.

I seriously doubt that Jeb's paymasters at the Chamber of Commerce would put up with such a system.

I remember years ago on Free Republic how some thought Jebbie was the “real” conservative of the Bush family, not GWB, who won two terms. Events of recent years has thrown gasoline on that old argument for Jebbie. My understanding is that it is or was Marvin who was the “real conservative” of the Bush family. But it might be “none of the above”.

Jeb Bush should go spoon a goose. Here he is trying to
legitimize illegal immigration of third world uneducated
ignorant wetbacks to America with Canaduhhs so called
‘express entry’ for Skilled immigrants.

The guy is as ditzy as that fat liberal broad Jackson Lee.
Sorry but only Texas can afford that kind of conic relief,
not the whole country.

“Skilled immigrants to be offered ‘express entry’
to Canada in 2015”

None of which is germane to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the border. Does Jeb REALLY think that the illegals being hired by businesses (and those businesses willing to knowingly hire illegals, and thus providing incentive, are just as much part of the issue as government’s failure to secure the border) are primarily folks with trade skills or advanced degrees?
