Watch Jeb Bush pull off a wink and nod while saying we need immigration reform because immigrants are fertile.
I can’t discern if Jeb was making a case for eugenics or implying that immigrants reproduce like rabbits. I assume it’s the latter, but either way it’s not a good look.
Offensive implications aside, Jeb Bush has flip flopped on the issue of immigration reform more times than any other politician, and as recently as March came out against a pathway to citizenship and healthcare for immigrants.
“Permanent residency in this context, however, should not lead to citizenship,” Bush writes. “It is absolutely vital to the integrity of our immigration system that actions have consequences — in this case, that those who violated the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship.”
His rhetorical support should be taken with a grain of salt as his position may change at any time.
