Jeb Bush: Illegals Are Committing an “Act of Love”

Jeb Bush: Illegals Are Committing an “Act of Love”

You may remember the saying: ‘Tis better to remain silent and be thought an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.  Jeb Bush, in an interview with Fox News on Sunday, proved that saying correct.  On illegal immigration:

“The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally … and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work, to be able to provide for their family, yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony.

“It’s an act of love, it’s an act of commitment to your family.”

That statement is so bereft of reason that I find it difficult to fathom how in God’s green earth he can say it with a straight face.  In fact, he is completely removed from reality—and it illustrates perfectly why we cannot get decent immigration reform in this country. When we can’t even agree on what illegal immigration is, or whether it’s wrong, there is no way that anything will be accomplished.  Jeb Bush and his “moderate” liberal cronies think that sneaking across the border is an act of love.  Never mind that often, these people are paying money to allow themselves to be trafficked across the border.  Last time I checked, human trafficking was an even “worse” felony, but Jeb is focused on the love.  That’s okay, Jeb: Let’s say you’re correct, and all of this is just because of honest and hardworking people that genuinely love their family so much that they need to come across the border, take our jobs, take our medical care, and commit a disproportionate amount of crime.  Let’s take a look at what all that love looks like.

This is a part of our southern border.  Absolutely lovely.

Here’s another.

Need one more?

It’s so bad in some parts of Arizona that the state government has set up a website to coordinate volunteer efforts to help clean it up.  How bad is bad?  It’s estimated that over 2,000 tons of trash are left there every year.  That is four million pounds of trash. Four million pounds of dirty diapers, empty bottles, wrappers, clothes, etc.  Four million pounds of human feces, medical waste, and other toxic or dangerous items. That’s not counting the destruction of the ecosystem through trampling all the plants and helping to erode the landscape.   The worst part is that the people who try to go clean it up are putting themselves in danger; camps of illegals, criminals, and cartel members litter the borderlands like the trash they are, too.

Included in that total are other things:  Copies of the Koran, prayer rugs, and things showing a definite segment of Middle Eastern folks among those sneaking in.  We are told that it’s so dangerous out there, and so many people want to kill us, that we “need” the NSA to be digging in all our private affairs to catch all the “bad guys”…yet we let them in by the millions.  Literally.

We’ve already talked about the effect on crime that illegals have in this country.  I’m sure those animals who rape and murder babies and elderly women came here so they could provide for their family.  I’m sure their presence in this country as they prey on the innocent is merely an act of love.

The worst part of this story, however, isn’t that Jeb Bush is stupid (most of us already knew that anyway).  It’s not even the 4 million pounds of trash every year, although the knowledge that those people are destroying my beautiful country fills me with rage.  It’s that the GOP is so incredibly lost that they think this man is a viable candidate for the Presidency.  They find us so irrelevant, so beneath them, so in need of their rule that they would support a man who is in favor of inviting in unwashed hordes of people with no loyalty to the United States, no allegiance to the principles of liberty, no sense of personal responsibility.  What’s more, is that the GOP has the balls to tell us we should agree with them.  They think that we are too stupid, that we’ll go along to get along.  There’s so much room in the big tent, right?

What I can’t figure out yet, however, is why.  Why put up a candidate who you know doesn’t have the backing of the people?  Why someone who literally stands against some of the core precepts of what the GOP claims to believe?  …unless, you didn’t want him to win anyway.  Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney; these are men who we do not want because they do not understand what liberty is.  They are shifty and clueless, a dangerous combination.  The truth is, however, we can’t wait for the GOP to present us with a candidate we like.   If you get to the ballot box and there are “no good candidates,” then we failed.  It’s our JOB to ensure that the bad ones get weeded out, and the good ones get supported.  If we get stuck with Jeb Bush as the GOP nominee for President, we will have no one to blame but ourselves.  Don’t wait to get shafted with some moron who thinks illegal immigration is a noble gesture.  Let’s fight to get a candidate that actually knows what a border is for.

    Jeb Bush is a babbling distraction. (RINO)
    “In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith and becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else. It is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of his creed, birthplace, or origin. This is predicated on the person becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for only one flag, the American flag, we have room for but one language, and that is the English language, and we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people. ” Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt

    Why? Because the Chamber of Commerce, Big Ag, and other big businesses want amnesty. They want cheap labor for their companies and workplaces, and they come courting the GOP with $$. They already have the Dems, all they need to do is make sure they have Dem lite on the Republican side.

    Besides, who loves the Bushes more than Karl Rove? Bet with some digging, one could find his sorry face behind the “push Jeb Bush” campaign.

    If you haven’t already seen it, there’s little support for him on various blogs. I have considerable disappointment with his statement and any mention of him as presidential candidate.

    I never was all that much of a fan of Bush 1 and Bush 2. Given the very entrenched thought s and feelings about them by many people, I think a Bush 3 would be a grave mistake at this time. Moreover, if I were a resident of the state of Fla, I would call for his resignation. It’s bad enough we have the current administration that picks and chooses what laws to obey and enforce. We don’t any governors adding to this.

    Also, I question his attributing “an act of love” to the millions who have invaded our country. I really do not understand how he could make such a broad, shallow statement. Even if our national circumstance was greatly better than it is, I would settle for nothing less than lawful immigration into the country.

  • Jen says:

    I would like for Jeb Bush to personally tell Susan Krentz, whose rancher husband Bob was shot to death on their ranch in AZ that the illegal who did it(footprints were followed back into Mexico) that the man obviously was here as an act of love. And her husband being shot on his ATV was just a mistake, an accident. Same with his dog that was also shot.

  • One of my initial thoughts was that Jeb Bush was confusing Mexico and Central America with 19th century France, and thinks that illegal immigrants are modern-day Jean Valjeans, desparate to feed their families, with no other recourse than to come to the U.S., an improbable conclusion at best.

    There was a further article on National Review which vindicated me, observing that Mexico was, on the whole, doing much better than many of its neighbors, but I can’t seem to find it any longer. I think it was this same article that pointed out that, according to polls, the reason why Mexicans cross is not desperation but a conviction that they have every right, morally, to do so.

    I haven’t yet seen an explanation for J Bush’s inexplicable comment that border-crossers should be given more leniency than visa-overstayers, though.

    Thank you for these eye-opening pictures, too.
