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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I think America has about all the Bushes it can take.

Indeed. Jeb Bush couldn't win a presidential election if the Dems all stayed home. He's as irrelevant as yesterday's fish wrap.

If he had a lick of sense, he'd just go back to whatever life he had before he was a Governor.

When everyone was saying George W. Bush was a dope they were talking about the wrong guy. This one is the Bush family idiot. So uneducated, illiterate , criminally prone moochers from Third World start more business than native-born Americans? I suppose Third World border-jumpers created Ford, GM, AT&T etc.? What a mooron.

That really is the problem with the elitists, they honestly are so tied to their imaginary reality, that they believe ordinary people who also happen to have common sense, look at them as nuts!

With liberals, one knows they are looking out to line their own pockets with OPM (other people's money) and grab and hold onto power, where as elitists so strongly believe in an alternate universe, they don't imagine for one minute that we don't also believe the same!

As Ronald Reagan used to say, "It's not that liberals don't know anything, it's just that so much of what they know, just isn't true!"

Would that the guy were still around to lighten up our lives with good old common sense. God Bless Ronald Reagan!!!

“I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and lived here, even though sometime back they may have entered illegally,” Ronald Reagan 1984

Reagan put this into practice in 1986. WTF, the precedent was set, excuses do not matter. Same thing with the NSA abuse, OSHA, EPA, etc... all created by Republican Statist.

This asshat exhibits the very thing progressives beat us over the head with and the country clubbers all look at each other with vapid, “I don’t know why they hate Jeb,” looks on there alchohol reddened jowls.

Forgive me if I do not think any foreign national should have the same citizenship rights as my 14th generation children have. FORGIVE ME IF I THINK IMMIGRANTS MUST PROVE THEMSELVES WORTHY TO BE CALLED AMERICANS. It should not be for sale and damned sure shouldn’t just be given away.

These idiots are going to keep forcin these two roosters into the ring and it is going to result in a violent outburst.

Reagan also said that signing that amnesty bill was the biggest mistake of his presidency.

The man had the capacity to learn from his mistakes, and adjust his course according to reality on the ground. He left the Democrat party, didn’t he?

Excuses, excuses...

Short sighted politicians are the death of us all. Why can't so called “conservatives” stick to principles rather than be pragmatic whores like your hero?

Hell, when it comes to Obama, his allegiance to the Marxist principles far outweigh the pragmatism displayed by so called limited government types who only talk, not do for future sake.

Jeb married a Mexican national and has mixed children. He can’t emotionally separate himself from his home situation to have an ounce of credibility on the issue. This was probably also the reason for his brother’s illegal alien blind spot (well, that and being in thrall to giant business interests who want to force down American wages).
