    CNN ^ | 9/3/15 | Ashley Killough
    Just minutes after Jeb Bush bashed Donald Trump in his stump speech on Thursday, Bush was questioned by a frustrated voter on what he would do about illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border. In the six-minute exchange that grew tense at times, the former Florida governor was asked why he didn't support the idea of cutting off aid or other funds to Mexico until the country does more to stop illegal crossings into the United States. "They don't do anything about the border. We're being defensive. Why don't we be offensive for once?" Dennis Lamare asked, echoing sentiments that have...

    The Hill ^ | 9/3/15 | Jesse Byrnes
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweaked Republican presidential rival Donald Trump on Thursday after the businessman pledged to support the eventual GOP nominee. After Trump posted a tweet touting his pledge not to make a third-party run, Bush replied by including a photo with his own signature under text reading, "Voted Republican since 1972." The barb is part of a continued push from Bush's campaign to point out that Trump has previously been registered as a Democrat and donated to Democrats. “He was a Democrat longer than he was a Republican,” Bush said at a New Hampshire town hall last...

    The PGA is canceling its annual Grand Slam of Golf tournament this year following a disagreement with presidential contender Donald Trump. The event was slated to be held in October at the GOP front-runner's Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles. But the PGA decided in July to move the tournament after Trump made controversial statements about illegal immigration. On Thursday, the PGA said they were unable to find another venue in time.

    Jeb Bush took his offensive against Republican presidential rival Donald Trump on the road to this early voting state on Thursday, lambasting the real estate mogul's proposals in his opening remarks and defiantly responding to his jeers. He also faced some heat on immigration, Trump's signature issue. Trump has criticized Bush for speaking Spanish on the campaign trail. Bush said Thursday he believed in campaigning with "brazos abiertos -- with our arms wide open." Trump has accused Bush of lacking the "energy" to be president. Bush vowed to "wake up each day with passion and conviction to make sure people's...

    Donald Trump famously called Jeb Bush "a very low-energy kind of guy." The New York Times headlined a story this week with the words,"Jeb Bush is still waiting for polling to catch up with fundraising." And in the final days of 2014, the American Spectator published, "The Overrated Candidate: The Case Against Jeb Bush." Unfortunately for Bush, the list does go on, and on, and on. It's coming from what many would consider friendly corners and those who own said corners. It's most definitely coming from foes. Bush has struggled, stumbled and staggered his way through this summer campaign season....

Addressing the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) in Nevada, Carson said that “the reason that I think we need to seal our borders completely… all of our borders–north, south, east, and west–is not so much because I’m afraid of somebody from Honduras.” “I’m afraid of someone from Syria who wants to bomb us, who wants to do bad...

"The Mass is going to be in Spanish," Wuerl said Wednesday while previewing the pope's trip to reporters. "It's a recognition of how large the Hispanic population in the United States is," said Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington. "And he's coming as the first pope from the New World and the predominant language in this hemisphere is Spanish," added Wuerl of the Argentine-born pope. Francis, meanwhile, will...

    The hordes of illegal immigrant minors entering the U.S. are bringing serious diseases—including swine flu, dengue fever, possibly Ebola virus and tuberculosis—that present a danger to the American public as well as the Border Patrol agents forced to care for the kids, according to a U.S. Congressman who is also medical doctor. This has created a “severe and dangerous” crisis, says the Georgia lawmaker, Phil Gingrey. Most of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) are coming from Central America and they’re importing infectious diseases considered to be largely eradicated in this country. Additionally, many of the migrants lack basic vaccinations such...

This study is the first in recent years to examine immigrant (legal and illegal) and native welfare use using the Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP).

    Back in 2012, GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the white vote 59 percent to 39 percent. He lost Hispanics by a notorious margin, 71-27. All of which makes Jeb Bush's numbers in the new Washington Post-ABC News poll fascinating. That's because the former Florida governor is actually doing better among Hispanics than among whites (albeit within the margin of error). This is both because Bush does worse than your average Republican among whites and notably better among Hispanics. While 39 percent of whites report a positive impression of him, that number is 43 percent for Hispanics. It's almost unthinkable...

    In a classic example of phony political jujitsu, an MSNBC contributor has tried to turn the patriotism issue back against Republicans. Appearing on today's Ed Show, Steve Clemons attacked the "patriotism" of GOP congressional leaders, accusing them of "undermining the security of the nation." This because Republicans have attached amendments to the DHS funding bill denying funds for President Obama's executive amnesty. Of course neither Clemons nor Schultz revealed that in a potential DHS "shutdown," all essential personnel, including those at TSA, Customs and Border, Secret Service, FEMA and Coast Guard, would continue to work.

The IBD polling, which mentions mandatory deportation, reinforces this stunning disconnect between politicians and the people they supposedly serve, a chasm that Donald Trump has spotted and used to his huge advantage.

But not so fast says GOP rival Jeb Bush. The former governor of Florida said over the weekend Trump is promising to build “a wall that can’t be built,” the Washington Examiner reported. It’s a determination Bush said he made after talking to mayors and law enforcement on the Texas-Mexico border, who he said told him a wall can’t be built because of the rugged...

The lawbreaking that Jeb’s talking about in the ad is a reference to crossing the border because you can’t find work to feed your family back home. You can read the “act of love” comment in context here. And here’s the thing: If you do, you’ll see that Bush wanted people to notice it and remember it. “I’m going to say...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump released a chilling video Monday attacking opponent Jeb Bush for once suggesting that undocumented immigrants entered the United States as "an act of love." The 15-second video, which Trump posted to Instagram and Twitter, begins with the text: "Jeb Bush's Thoughts on Illegal Immigration." It plays sound of Bush, a former Florida governor, saying of undocumented immigrants, "Yes, they broke the law, but it's not a felony. It's an act of love." Over the sound of Bush talking, with harrowing music playing, the Trump video flashes mug shots of Francisco Sanchez, who was charged in...

    The latest poll out of Iowa is not good news for the two Florida Republicans competing in the GOP presidential primary contest. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are tied in fifth place with 6 percent of the vote in a Bloomberg/Des Moines Register poll released over the weekend. Real estate mogul Donald Trump continues to lead in this survey with 23 precent support. Most surprisingly, retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson is now just five points back in second place with 18 percent support. Ted Cruz and Scott Walker are tied for third with 8 percent, followed by the two Floridians....

    Liberals and the MSM constantly tell us that illegals are good for the country, that they are hardworking and pay their own way. As a result, we're told that it would be wrong to deport them. Given that "reality," even staunch conservatives should agree with the following: let's let any illegal who works hard and pays his own way stay. If illegals are all that Democrats say they are, illegals will never cross the path of any government organization and won't burden honest Americans financially. In light of that, let's consider the following deportation solution: any illegal who costs the...

    We are becoming accustomed to the liberal way of jurisprudence. Arrest, convict, release, and repeat. For some reason, we have lost the idea of justice and punishment. So, when we hear that a man, who has been convicted of repeated sexual assault, is caught reentering the country, it should hardly rate as news. But, it should cause us to ask how we stop this repeat offender. It seems that the criminal is no longer in fear of justice. Breitbart reports A previously convicted child molester who has been deported at least three times is once again in federal custody after...

    Tropical Storm Erika nearly forced Jeb Bush's presidential campaign to call off a donor reception planned for Monday night in Coral Gables. But the storm dissipated before reaching Florida and the event will still take place, at the home of auto executive Manny Kadre, one of the donors told the Miami Herald. -snip- Bush's staff has tightened some of its spending, as the New York Times reported. It also lost three fundraising consultants, as Politico reported, though the trio will remain active with Right to Rise USA, the super PAC backing Bush. Between the campaign and the super PAC, Bush...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says his fellow 310 million Americans just can’t build a wall along the 2,000-mile border with Mexico. “What Donald Trump is proposing is a wall that can’t be built,” Bush said in a Sunday radio interview with John Catsimatidis on New York’s AM 970. -snip- Bush’s “We Can’t Do It,” mantra contrasts with Trump’s “Make American Great Again” slogan. So far, the public seems to prefer Trump’s confident vision to Bush’s passive, pessimistic vision. A new poll of Iowa voters shows that 23 percent of voters support Trump, and six percent support Bush. However, immediately...

    Jeb Bush fired back at Donald Trump at a Hamptons fund-raiser, calling the Republican front-runner “a jerk.” At the Southampton event Bush — who has been blasted by Trump as “low energy” — added that watching his political rival is like “watching reality TV,” according to a witness.

    of course the trick will be trying to figure that out! Twin Falls, Idaho has developed a very active and competent ‘Pocket of Resistance’ in spite of the local media’s effort to denigrate opponents of the UN/US State Department plan to further seed the community with third world refugees. This round of controversy began in earnest back in April when the local resettlement contractor bragged to the media that Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees were coming to Idaho. ...

    Washington (AFP) - Billionaire Donald Trump has soared in opinion polls for the Republican presidential primary, but inflammatory anti-immigrant rhetoric could cost him the crucial Latino vote in the 2016 White House race. "What Trump is doing is political suicide," says Patricio Zamorano, executive director of the consulting firm Infoamericas.info. Since launching his campaign in June, "The Donald" has catapulted to the top of the Republican polls, ahead of 16 other candidates, and at 28 percent this week he is streaking away from his nearest rival by 16 points. Immigration has dominated the agenda since then, with Trump, 69, promising...
