Jeb Bush: Send Majority Of Unaccompanied Minors Back Home
Breitbart ^ | 07/24/2014 | by CHARLIE SPIERING

Posted on 07/24/2014 12:42:59 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, co-author and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush argued that it was important to send the majority of the 50,000 unaccompanied minors back home.

“Except for those deserving few who may demonstrate true cause for asylum or protection from sex trafficking, these children must be returned to their homes in Central America,” he wrote in the op-ed, which was co-authored by Clint Bolick.

Bush argued that the 2008 anti-trafficking law - allowing children to stay in the country - should be changed to help stop the flow of children crossing the border, who then claim asylum.

“The children who have come here were provoked by adults and made to believe that crossing our border would be the key to their family's escape from a life of poverty or danger,” Bush writes. “That must end.”

Bush has a record of supporting immigration reform, especially a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. He has also suggested that for many, crossing the border illegally was an “act of love.”

Here are the key paragraphs of his op-ed:

“We must close loopholes that allow for individuals to be released from federal custody between hearings. Except for those deserving few who may demonstrate true cause for asylum or protection from sex trafficking, these children must be returned to their homes in Central America.

Next, we must aggressively remove the incentives that encourage people to break immigration laws. It is vital that we clearly communicate that there will be zero rewards for those who imperil the lives of children by sending them to the U.S. illegally. The children who have come here were provoked by adults and made to believe that crossing our border would be the key to their family’s escape from a life of poverty or danger. That must end.”

Jeb is so transparent. He’s saying this so that they can get back to working on passing “comprehensive immigration reform.” The people are up in arms!

I think he qualified that with the Majority of illegals in Alaska.

I wouldn’t trust or vote for this damn phony or any other damn Bush again ever. Everytime I have to look at or hear that disgusting menace in the Oval Office, I see the faces of the three guys who helped out him there : Bush I, Clinton, Bush II.

The children who have come here were provoked by adults

One adult in particular: Initials, BHO.

Too late JEB. Your ‘act of love’ comment has ended all hopes of the White House for you.

Why not run for US Senate in 5 years? Or better yet, go away!

All 12 of them? What about the majority of the “unaccompanied minor” adults? We need to send ALL of them home. “Refugees” should only be allowed in this country when they are seeking temporary safety. “Refugees” should not be seeking amnesty, government handouts, U.S. citizenship and a DemocRAT voter registration form. That’s not how the “refugee” thing works. We definitely need a little “comprehensive refugee reform”. This regime has it all ass backwards.

While you're deporting these illegals, deport Jeb Bush and is wife to Central or South America. The Bushes will feel at home with their “clan”.

I was reading about “Child Soldiers” in Africa and south/ central America just now and it hit me. Did Obama buy all those rounds of ammo for the SS, EPA or whatever, or did he import ‘child soldiers’ to do the jobs American soldiers might not do? Thinking about it, I got a chill. These are not infants, they are in the range of the targeted groups of merciless killers. Any thoughts? Nothing to scoff about.
