Jeb Bush: U.S. economy needs immigrants because they’re ‘more fertile’
Washington Post ^ | June 14, 2013 | Aaron Blake

Posted on 06/14/2013 9:19:10 PM PDT by Windflier

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) argued Wednesday that the United States should pass immigration reform because the U.S. economy needs the labor of young immigrants, and immigrants are “more fertile.”

“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans,” Bush said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to the Majority conference. “Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.”

Bush said immigrants are an advantage that the United States has over China, Europe and Japan, which don’t have the same immigrant tradition and are struggling to find young laborers.

“If we don’t do it, we will be in decline, because the productivity of this country is dependent upon young people that are equipped to be able to work hard,” Bush said.

Bush, whose wife is a Mexican-born immigrant, has long been an advocate for comprehensive immigration reform.

So far we know illegals:

1. Procreate...alot
2. Will pay for border security.

What will #3 be? Carbon footprint is small because they transport “merchandise” from Mexico to and thru the US in an energy efficient way?

“Bush said immigrants are an advantage that the United States has over China, Europe and Japan, which don’t have the same immigrant tradition and are struggling to find young laborers.”

Sure. China has a dwindling population and can't find young laborers because they don't have enough immigrants. Then why have they restricted the number of children a family can have, Jeb?

And Jeb, do we have more jobs than there are people to fill them? I didn't know that. You should tell someone, because there are a lot of unemployed people out there who don't know about these jobs.

The use of contraception does not indicate poor fertility on the user’s part, in fact it proves quite the opposite. Consider that using contraception in the first place necessarily means that one is trying to blunt their fertility purposely.

Just because Caucasians are not reproducing at the same rate doesn’t mean squat WRT their fertility, it just means they aren’t interested in reproducing at a higher rate.

Being taxed to death and treated like a draft horse might have something to do with it. Oh, and maybe a bleak future under despotic rule might just have a little to do with it also...

They’re only more fertile because many Americans have to either not have children or have small families. Also, 1.3 million women a year choose to abort their children. If immigrants did the same thing, they wouldn’t be any more fertile.

Jeb Bush has been out there a lot recently. I won’t be voting for him in the primaries in 2016, but if the establishment wants him, they’ll get him regardless.

By Jeb Bush’s standards, then homosexuals are undesireable because they do not reproduce?

Of all the speeches and utterances of the GOP, THIS is one of the dumbest on the planet.

You want to know what the politicos have to do to get us to pay attention to that awful immigration bill?

Hell yeah, I’LL WRITE IT FOR THEM.

Set up...press conference with Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell:


“We are here to plead with the American people to please, pretty please, forgive your political class for passing broad amnesty in 1985 then failing to follow through like you promised.

We understand your ire and refusal to address this issue. We promise to stop blaming you and calling you names, we know that all would be well in this country today had we (or whoever was in power at the time) secured our borders in the mid-80’s like we promised.

The nature of our government is the re-election of new people through the years. What one politician promised many years ago means nothing to a politician now serving.

We know this and we apologize to all the American people who we’ve accused of everything to jingoism to outright discrimination and hatred.

We will be instituting Town Halls across the country to hear your concerns, we are forming an independent commission to study the problem and return with suggestions, we are setting up web sites for your input.

As you know, we will NOT grand amnesty to anyone until our borders are secured, we heard your message, we get it.

Again, our regrets for casting aspersions to you folks who carry this country on your backs. We beg you to return to work, stop the work outages. We want you back and we know so very well that you law-abiding citizens work as hard as any lettuce-picker and we regret our assaults on your sincerity.

Thank you for supporting our bill”


Yeah, that’s the ticket.

“The birth rate for U.S.-born women decreased 6% during these years, but the birth rate for foreign-born women plunged 14%—more than it had declined over the entire 1990-2007 period. The birth rate for Mexican immigrant women fell even more, by 23%.”

Isn’t that interesting. All the stories we’re getting in the MSM by the racists is that whites are doomed.

I dont know what Bush's point is, but I know the future belongs to the people who are not aborted by birth control. I pray that my Christian, liberty minded children can find Christian, liberty minded spouses who love the blessings of posterity. I could not care less what race or nationality they are.

I want to like Jeb Bush. I believe he understands "family values." He strikes me as a decent person, though I wish he had done more to prevent the unspeakable, unthinkable travesty of the courts ordering that Terri Schiavo be starved to death.

In his argument on immigrant fertility, as quoted above, he seems to argue that everything good about immigrants is exactly everything that has been bred out of the American people over the past 50 years by social engineering. To propose to reinvigorate the population while ignoring the cause of the injury seems to be a plan to transfuse blood into a patient with a cut throat.

Oh, and my comment on why use Jeb instead of John - it was his momma that came up with it, you have to believe it was, rather than Jeb himself deciding John was too common. My understanding is he was called what momma called him, from the beginning, not a decision he made later.

If anyone knows differently, feel free to weigh in.

You are mistaken about TC’s eligibility. It’s nice I don’t have to debate it with you because the issue will be dealt with by others that are quite well qualified to address it. But the fact you state - born in Canada therefore ineligible - just shows what you think you know about eligibility is very limited and not correct if your exact wording is all you have to go on.

To recap: “born in Canada therefore ineligible”, isn’t a correct statement.

You can either choose to research this issue from a variety of sources and do some deeper study after the proper research, or you can just go on putting out your incorrect statement.

What the poster wrote about reason for being inelible for the presidency just isn’t true. So it wasn’t “your bad” for considering Cruz. Flat out, her statement just is false. That if you are born in Canada, that fact alone makes you ineligible. Now there are claims made on the internet to that affect. But just because someone claims something and it maybe sounds right, doesn’t make it so. Happens all the time.

Here’s my prediction. Rand Paul will run in primary and not get on the ticket (Cruz not eligible) so, no conservative on the repub ticket. Can’t have those radicals who believe in the constitution on the ticket.
Shillary will win after country and media ignores her record.

We will be here again in 2017 talking about a third party after not being recognized by the dem lite party.

Well, here’s an idea let’s get on the third party now and save ourselves anout Lucy hold the football experience while the country goes down the chi—er for another 4 years.

What good is a republican majority in congress when they are just voting with democrats.

After the amnesty passes, maybe more will be ready to jump ship.

That's because we pay them to have kids, expecting WIC, Food Stamps, and free education (with affirmative action) and health care. We refrain from having more because of the cost of raising them to be productive citizens.

Hey JebbieBoy, let me give you some real life experience that I lived every day when owning a company in Pico Rivera, CA during the 90's and earlier in my life.

Yes, Latinos love their bambinos. They love them so much that teenage girls feel proud when they get knocked up. Their macho men also feel proud that they can actually impregnate a young girl. It's like a badge of honor for their machoism.

However, Boy, once those bambinos in the inner cities start to hit puberty, they get pushed out on the streets...mostly due to their mothers having to work and having no fathers to support or guide them. Their family ethic goes to shit and those adolescents/teens hit the streets.

They turn to gangs since they longer are wanted by their teen/young mothers and join gangs to feel wanted. I've seen it over and over again through my 63 years. That's one of the reasons I have been against illegal immigration all my life. Many Latinos have a moral grounding, but so many many others just don't care. And don't start me on welfare queens, along with their welfare kings.

You need to shut your elitist pie-hole that you know nothing about. I grew up on the streets of Los Angeles and watched those poor children roam the streets until they got their gang colors. I know because I fought them once in gang fight. Have you?

The blacks have the same problem. The "baby daddys" jump their girlfriends and then leave. Yes, it happens with white trash, also, but to a much lessor extent. Most Asians are the last race I have any respect for.

You're an ass and don't know anything about the real world, much like your other elitists. Keep telling yourself there is no difference between cultures and you will sleep well at night.

Here's an answer as I always suggest to the problem rather than just whine. If you care one iota about the future of the greatest and most productive and benevolent nation this rock has seen, stop giving my tax dollars to those who would rather sit on their ass and get free Obamaphones.

Cut welfare back even more and watch them get jobs or at least group together to survive, as many ethical folks do. I owe none of them a TV, A/C, Car, i-Phone, et al. I don't want them to starve, but our so-called poor are rich compared to so many other cultures/countries.

Grow up and go away. Jeb Bush, if you run for president, I will oppose you. You're the same old bleeding heart socialist politically correct politician that is killing our once great experiment. You will play the socialist/democrat tune and think you are being open. Go away.

He’s making national decisions based on his own experience and blind to the facts. That’s the reason I finally signed up because of the Terri fiasco and he, as governor, was a chump! If he had any deep seated values - he would have been 100 times more aggressive. He wanted to just get along and not start a raucous against the big boys.

He’s no patriot - just a wet noodle going through life under the radar until he grows up and it never happened. Now it’s his turn - another wet noodle for the GOP, to follow romney, mc cain and dole. Not surprised dole was chosen to represent viagra.

“just shows what you think you know about eligibility is very limited”

Born in Canada = not eligible. Sorry.

I love Cruz, but he’s not eligible for the presidency.

There’s a reason why the Founders wanted a president born in the country. Arguing that Americans can be adequately represented by a Canadian will destroy what’s left of the conservative coalition.

You’ve spent the last 5 years arguing against Obama because he’s foreign born and now turn around when convenient to argue for someone you like born outside of America? If Americans aren’t going to vote for someone who is born in America, who will?

All valid points, but if we reach the next election without chaos in the U.S. I'd be really surprised.

My prediction. The U.S. will experience more muzzie mayhem on our soil caused by further intervention in the cesspool of the middle east, uncle sugar will cram through anti-2nd amendment legislation, immigration reform will legalize millions of illegals, civil disobedience will begin over obozocare and tyranny fatigue of more scandals and fed oppression.

Folks will just have their fill of gubbamint placing foreigners interest over that of American citizens.

The F-reserve will attempt a pull back on QE, the markets will react. Folks will lose lotsa $$$ thinking they must hang on, the markets gotta go back up.

Interest rates will rise, swelling the national debt a few hundred billion. Housing starts will slowdown or stop. The economy will slow even further, unemployment will rise.

There will likely be a wider regional conflict in the middle east. Israel will have no choice but to act against Iran. Strong possibility that Syria could aim to pull Israel into their civil war in an effort to rally the muzzie. When this happens, Damascus could be destroyed by Israeli retaliation. Russia could be pulled in.

We could see more muscle flexing by the Chi-coms. They've been intimidating Japan, Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam.

Sounds pretty damn grim, but we are a stones throw from all of this.
