Skip to comments.Bush to GOP: Give Immigration a Chance
Posted on 07/07/2013 1:42:33 PM PDT by South40
Former President George W. Bush wants Republicans to consider immigration on its own merits, not just as a party saving piece of legislation, he said during an interview on ABC's This Week. "Sometimes, it takes time for some of these complex issues to evolve. And it looks like immigration, you know, has a chance to pass," Bush said.

Hey George - ENFORCE EXISTING LAWS AND WE DO NOT NEED THIS DISCUSSION. No American citizen is clamoring for COMPREHENSIVE RAT VOTER REFORM - only the Illegal Aliens are pushing it and their GOP-e supporters.
Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.
Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.
Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.
Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives wont vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.
Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.
call congress . no bill at all from the House
and of course boner must not bring the Senate bill for the House to vote on. no senate bill, no border security bill from the House .nothing.
Aw Jeez, not this Sh$t again....
Give crack a chance W
Whats so good about letting in 100 million 3rd world socialists that will vote for democrats/socialism who will turn the USA into a socialist/communist state.
Rubio, W, democrats , answer that ok? whats so good about the above?
Answer that you dumb drunk , Bush ok?
George, in all sincerity, go pound it.
He’s always been a North American Union kind of guy, and that’s just bs. What do we expect for a guy who did absolutely nothing tangible or lasting about the border or the wall for eight years.
Give the invasion a chance.
I believ we already gave “immigration”(amnesty by any other name) a chance in 1986. That hasn’t worked out so well.
...says a man who has life-time Secret Service protection and called Islam a “religion of peace.”
The years haven't made GWB any more coherent.
I never understood why liberal democRATs hated Bush so much when he is perhaps the most liberal Republican to ever occupy the WH.
Like father like son-NWO, loss of sovereignty, loss of jobs, no border fence, UN redistribute the wealth just like Obama wants.
NO MORE BUSHES!!!!!
Why? Why not hold Mexico responsible for their own poverty. Pressure should be brought upon the Mexican government to start treating THEIR citizens like human beings. It’s not the job of the American taxpayers to care for them.
Hey, W, tell Laura to pick up a mop and learn how to use it instead of buying her a slave from Mexico to do it for her. She could get off the couch, put down the romance novel. A little honest toil does every person some good.
4-1/2 years of hell and this is what he decides to talk about?
Bush, As you learned in 2007 the only thing stopping immigration reform is your insistence on amnesty first.
I would be much more sympathetic to this whole immigration legislation thingy if there wasn’t an immigration system already in place. The people that this immigration legislation targets have circumvented the current system that is in place. I have no faith that a new system will be respected anymore by these individuals. If anything, since the US will have kowtowed to these individuals in the form of this new legislation, this will only embolden these people to take further liberties with our country.
Passage of this legislation will only lead to the future confirmation of what fools the elected representatives of this country were at the time that they passed this legislation.
Not surprising. For four-plus years Baraq The First has called George Bush everything but white and when Bush finally speaks regarding policy, what does he do?
He opposes conservatives. It’s enough to make me take the pledge.
I am more often than not a GWB supporter, but this just shows some are stuck on stupid.
We gave Bush a chance, so don’t push it.
In the final analysis G.W. has the right to his opinion and his pimping for an amnesty bill is not going to carry much weight with anyone but fellow RINOs - who would vote for it, anyway.
Bush spoke about this in one conversation a few years ago, and the bottom line seemed to be that because his nanny was an illegal, we should let them all come in.
I’m going to start calling this dip-stick “Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosh”
Bush is also the same man who called the Minutemen "vigilantes" and who said ILLEGAL aliens are coming to America to do jobs that Americans won't do. We know these are leftist lies but Jorge doesn't hesitate to repeat them.
The big dummy, we already have an immigration system, he just wants to circumvent it and make it disappear.
You’re absolutely right about that!
Rubio, Ryan ,Democrats, Bush? do you realize that? I know democrats want that as that is their goal to advance progressive policies and install a socialist/communist state.
do you Bush, democrats,Ryan , rubio realize that you are for communism?
Hey GWB, didn’t you screw the country enough? Take a hike and go back in your hole.
So now he decides to speak up. Nothing else over the last five years could manage to move his tongue?
How can we have an honest discussion when one side can change the terminology to favor their point of view before the first argument is made. We need to get off the (illegal) immigrant term and start calling them what they are. How about Mexican colonists if invaders is too harsh. You really have to subjugate your intelligence to think this is just an “immigration” issue.
Good point. Obama and the demonRATs can and have said anything about Bush they wanted and he remained silent. But he speaks up now to push for amnesty?! The man obviously has his priorities and I believe getting amnesty passed (something he couldn’t do) is a priority.
No!!! You go home and be quiet George.
Blow it out your butt George.
Yahoo radical leftist news which hates the GOP and literally bundled campaign cash for the Muslim Marxist is saying nice stuff about the W.This tool is a useful idiot of the left !
Where the hell has this jack ass who let the Marxist give GM to the Left wing unions and screwed the bond holders been for five years !
Just go away u useless stooge of the Billionaire GOP Elites like
Koch,Adelson,Stubbs ( HEB groceries ).
He has created this vacuum that gave us these Marxists and now he wants to kill off the country for good..
Ask a thousand American citizens what are the most important issues facing this country. I guarantee immigration reform does not make the top 10.
“Immigration reform” is not “Immigration reform”...it is amnesty. But Bush, like so many liberal proponents of it, refuse to call it what it is.
I am pissed off at these Reckless Bushes and there cronies like Rove ,Fox News, Hannity, Rubio....
Yeah. Give LEGAL immigration a chance. If that statute cannot serve the current purposes of the United States, then re-write the provisions, or set up criteria based on the current realities of the world, and pass that into law, then, for the sake of the future of America, ENFORCE the law, giving no loopholes for “exceptions” like the atrocity commonly called “amnesty”, and especially nothing like a “chain migration”. Every entrant into the United States is not expected to become a citizen, nor should this be a stated goal. Except for serious breaches of the law and a resultant record of misbehavior, visitors are welcome AS VISITORS. If the purpose is to come to the United States to pursue studies or a career, then a suitable category as a resident foreign citizen may be reserved for this arrangement, but again, these people are not and do not choose to eventually become naturalized citizens. Then there is the highest category, those who, being of good character and genuinely interested in becoming a US citizen, willing to swear full allegiance and forsaking their land of nativity, are admitted for that purpose, on a conditional basis.
Only after fulfilling all the other requirements for citizenship (time of residence, familiarity with US law and customs including language, and swearing an oath of allegiance), would that coveted title be conferred upon the willing and dedicated applicant.
The Democrats are dumb but the Republicans are dumber. The Dems will have total control of national politics for a generation or more if this amnesty bill passes. If Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, and the rest of the pro-amnesty people think this will benefit the GOP then they are truly stupid. GOP to the Democrats means Grand Old Patsies.
We did and lost California.
I say give them California instead, but they HAVE to keep Hollywood and San Francisco, and leave the rest of the country alone.
