Jeb Bush champions immigration reform, Canada at conservative conference

Approximately 11 am, June 14, 2013

Jeb Bush, a former governor of Florida, stood out on Friday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference on the issue of immigrationand not just because he's fluent in Spanish and married a woman born in Mexico.

Unlike the speaker who preceded himtea party conservative Michele BachmannBush offered full support for immigration reform. He was greeted with tepid and sometimes absent applause from the mostly evangelical Republican audience gathered for the annual event at the J.W. Marriott hotel in Washington, D.C.

"The one way we can build the demographic pyramid is to fix a broken immigration system to allow more people to come to learn English, to play by our rules, to embrace our values and to pursue their dreams in our country with a vengeance to create more opportunities for all of us," Bush said. "This is a conservative idea. And if we do this, we will rebuild our country in a way that will allow us to grow. If we dont do it we will be in decline."

Busha recurring potential candidate for presidentsaid immigrants create more businesses than do individuals born in the U.S., and are "more fertile and they love families," and so can replenish the country's population with young people. At one point he argued that the U.S. ought to look to Canada as a model for immigration.


Just a glimpse of what this huckster has been pursuing:

And this guy lusts for the presidency.

A small problem, Jeb. America has outgrown the Bush Family with its toxic wars, public educational destruction, environmental spoilage and national economic ruin.

Be gone.
