Bush tries to move away from notorious remark, “illegal immigration is an act of love”
Here we go again. The amnesty duo of Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick have co-authored yet again. First it was their book “Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution.” Now the twosome has taken to the Opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal with “The Solution to Border Disorder.” The amnesty hucksters opine the “best antidote to illegal immigration is a functioning system of legal immigration.”
The usual blather about “America’s broken immigration system” leaps out in the first paragraph. Next comes the trio of trites, beginning with the “need for compassion” in the face of the “humanitarian crisis.”
But what’s this? Bush and Bolick schizophrenically jump from these squish views to sounding like hardliners, with “we must close loopholes” that allow for releases from federal custody between hearings.…except for those deserving few who may demonstrate true cause for asylum or protection from sex trafficking. The flood of children must be returned to their homes in Central America. Then they say “we must aggressively remove the incentives that encourage people to break immigration laws.”
Whoa. Sorry pals. You can’t have it both ways.
But still they try. “We should pursue interdiction strategies that head off illegal immigration before it gets to our border, calling for greater American engagement economically.” Moderates always think money has a palliative effect. These two sound suspiciously committed to Obama’s request for $3.7 billion of our tax dollars to address the invasion.
It’s no surprise the Bush-Bolick Team are onboard with the latest incarnation of McCain-Flake legislation, which they extol as increasing by 5,000 the number of humanitarian visas available in each of the countries producing the dispersion of illegals — Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras — providing an incentive, they claim, for individuals to stay in their home country and pursue immigration legally.
Trust in these practiced deceivers at your own peril.
As Jeb licks his chops in anticipation of a 2016 presidential run, it’s difficult not to agree with the Bush family matriarch, Barbara, who openly declared there had been “enough Bushes” in the Oval Office.
Mom is right. John Ellis “Jeb,” is a Bush too far.” Watch and listen closely.
