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 Coalitions 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 dont have the same immigrant tradition and are struggling to find young laborers.
If we dont 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.

The only thing that makes them ‘more fertile’ is there refusal to use birth control. The more children the more welfare.
Is there any statute anywhere we can claim gives us the right to pack this extended family up and boot their ass about 12,000 miles due South-East? I am so sick of their nonsense.
conversely more of white folk have been suckered into the Abortion Doctrine than other ethnic groups. Our “education” has been used against us. But it makes you wonder who is really smarter.
Do you think Mexico would give us free food, housing, and medical care and amnesty if we crossed their borders illegally? He$& No. They’d throw us into jail in NY min. After all these idiot politicians grant free amnesty and allow them to cross over and live here do they actually believe they will vote for them if another Mexican candidate is on the ballot? I will laugh my a$$ off as everyone of them are usurped and replaced by the brown candidates.
Hey Jebby. You want to be President? Do it without my vote.
Maybe Cubans are that way, but what the sam hill. Once they hit the US welfare system it logically bribes their families apart the same way it does to the gringos.
Jeb Bush is forever the fool.
the republicans have jettisoned conservatives, and aregoing to self-destruct.
they have brought it on themselves, it is not our fault, they have abandoned sanity and reason and logic, and are fully pledged to become as liberal as the democrats, just with different timelines and slightly different ways at getting the same agenda passed, they only care about being in charge of the liberal transformation because they think they’ll benefit from it.
they ave left us. any jerks here who want to blame conservatives for not supporting them, theyv’e left us, not the other way round. your efforts to blame conservatives for not backing rinos and moderates will be ignored at best, and sharply rejected, at worst.
From the mouth of an assclown. This is why we need to get rid of this kind of RINOS. Talk like they know everything but don’t know anything.
The McCain version - otherwise, we will have to spend $50 for a head of lettuce.
I just erased how I really feel.
From the article:
He has no chance in hell and he can burn there with the rest of the liars that we call politicians D or R they all have sold us out F them all.
I think so because it made me look to see if this was satire.
Levin was excoriating Jebby over his immigrant speech, on tonight’s show. It was glorious!! He said that we should pass a law forbidding more than two family members being able to be President...at least not sooner than 3 - 4 generations.
