The Republican Establishment’s choice for 2016 is standing by his commitment to importing millions of cheap foreign laborers into a country with an anemic economy and record low levels of employment. (Even Gallup admits the Obama unemployment figure is a “big lie”.)
I have a couple of questions for Mr. Bush, that no one is going to ask him.
1. You say that illegally crossing the border is “an act of love.” What about American workers with families, whose jobs are being taken and their wages are being driven down by cheap immigrant labor. Don’t they love their families, too? Don’t they have a right to wages and jobs to support better lives for their families?
2. Does the Republican Party have any credibility on “securing the border” or is it just lip service? You passed a law in 2006 promising to secure the border. Here we are almost ten years later, and you’re still promising to secure the border. You claim the Gang of Eight bill had ‘Tough Border Security’ in it, but all it did was say ‘DHS has two years to come up with a plan to secure the border. And if they don’t come up with a plan, we will appoint a commission to find out why they didn’t come up with a plan.” But legalization happened immediately and regardless of border security. Where do you have any credibility when you promise to secure the border.
