George W. Bush Praises Cheap
Labor Immigration: ‘We Ought to
Say Thank You and Welcome Them’

Breitbart Big Government, by John Binder

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/8/2018 7:17:01 PM

Former President George W. Bush praised the inflow of illegal and legal immigrants to the United States, saying Americans should “say ‘Thank you´” to migrants and “welcome them.” Addressing a summit in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Bush criticized President Trump’s decision to end the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which gave temporary amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens. (Snip) “There are people willing to do jobs that Americans won’t do,” Bush told his Arab audience. “Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees (Fahrenheit), but there are [migrant] people who want put food on

Comments:
It appears that Bush is becoming another Obama by making unnecessary statements while on foreign soil. He sure has changed, and not for the good. Or shall I say, the real George Bush has emerged from out of the shadows. Now it is perfectly clear why meaningful immigration reform that was beneficial to the USA was never accomplished while he was president. He didn´t want it. I´m sick to death of hearing that illegals will do jobs Americans won´t do! Ask the thousands of construction workers who lost their jobs because of illegals how they feel.

This is the same Bush who was constantly attacked by the punk from Chicago, now he is carrying water for him!
Where was your big mouth then, G.W.B when the Constitution was kicked every day? When US laws were only good enough to be broken?
I am so done with both Bushes!

There are two issues - the principal one is how we will choose to handle these immigrants. Reasonable people can disagree about this.

But the other issue is the rule of law. Obama himself said he did not have the authority to change the law, Congress had to do it. Then Obama did it anyway. All Trump has done is revert to the rule of law. He took an oath to uphold the law and is duty bound. If we the people as represented by Congress don´t like the law, then Congress needs to change the law. This is how our system works, apparently W is misremembering his civics classes.

I´ll pick my own cotton, george. Actually, machines do it these days. For those jobs that Americans don´t want to do, is there any reason that people here legally can´t do it? There is no reason that criminals be allowed to stay and take jobs. George and his fellow elites are just worried they won´t get the cheap domestic help they are accustomed to.

I have lost all respect for GW and wish I had never stood up for him. I live in rural Idaho, and we certainly cannot get along without migrant labor but they should be here with a work visa. They should be here to work and not collect multiple benefits, work under the table, and send most of their money back to Mexico. They don´t end up being cheap labor if the taxpayer is paying for them to live here.

There is a way, and it doesn´t have to be illegal.

Democrats want illegal immigration, because when they enable them to gain legal status, then possibly citizenship, they´ve been viewed as helping them gain something, and will then be rewarded with votes.

Just make a system that allows for people to come here LEGALLY, work and return, if they´d like, remove the illegal human trafficking component, and open up the legal immigration quotas where people will be processed in the usual way - this normally takes 10-12 years.

Either you stand for laws that are just, or you don´t. There is nothing wrong with our immigration laws. It is a nation´s prerogative to set the conditions and limits of immigration. If he doesn´t support that, he doesn´t really support the Constitution. Just another disappointment, like Sessions.

Former leader of the right wing of the progressive party. Mediocre (at best) president of no notable accomplishments. Got us into an endless war in the mid-east by overrunning Iraq then sitting back and letting our troops serve as punching bags for various lunatic Islamist fanatics. I guess the best excuse for this is that he was drawing them in to kill them over there rather than over here. Always was an open borders traitor. Best that can be said of him is that the two fools he ran against would almost certainly have been worse.

What Bush and his globalist cronies refuse to admit is that when those illegals become legal, do the Bushies and globalists really think those people will sit still for the cheap labor? I seriously doubt it. If they do get legalized, look for them to immediately leave agriculture and head for the decent paying jobs too.

I suspect this is also about all his globalist Saudi buddies who got purged. All those princes and high officials have been friends of the State Department and the Bushes for decades. The Saudis are even rumored to have foot the bill for some of the less than ethical doings of the State department as well. The whole mess is deeply entwined together and known as the swamp.

I had no problem with him nominating Harriet to the Supreme court. If you check the constitution, being a judge is not even required. When presidents started getting snobby about Ivy League only to the top court, this is when we started having problems with the court.

So what if she didn´t go to one of the Ivy Leagues? They are nothing but a bunch of over educated and brainwashed Leftists in the first place. The dirty little secret about Harriet is that SHE was responsible for picking the Judges that Bush did nominate. Any problems with those guys? Nope.

For eight years the liberal and progressive Democrats worked to make the liberal Republican (compassionate conservative) G.W. Bush a national joke. Now old G.W. is doing it to himself.

Establishment Republicans like G.W. Bush are a big reason that the illegal alien situation is so out of control today. Since about 1965 those Republicans allowed the liberal Democrats to say what the immigration laws would be, and during that time period the Democrats ensured that those laws and regulations were loaded so full of legal loopholes that any illegal aliens who hired an immigration lawyer could be assured that it would be at least 5 years before the immigration courts could deport him or her, even if they were criminal aliens, that is as long as they continued to pay their immigration lawyer who knew how to play all the esoteric loopholes to his or her client´s favor. Over decades the establishment Republicans generally could care less as to how the Democrats liberalized the immigration laws and immigration court procedures, as long as whatever was allowed to happen supplied an unlimited amount of cheap foreign labor, illegal or legal, that could easily be hired by the Republican business interests who financed many of the Republican politicians´ war chests, and their political campaigns.

Clearly the Bush family hates President Trump as the result of Trump´s public humiliation of Jeb Bush in the Republican primaries, as it certainly appears that Jeb was being set up by the establishment Republicans to be a stalking horse candidate for the supposed winner Hillary Clinton in the general election. Because of the "outsider" Trump none of that happened and the Bush clan has not forgot or forgiven.

Outspoken leftist and "Grey´s Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo challenged Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whom she referred to as a "b****", to a physical fight on Friday. For real. "Someone tell this b**** to meet me outside," wrote Pompeo, referring to Ingraham, via Twitter. "Im [sic] so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week."

Lacking any evidence of collusion between President Trump and the Russian operatives who meddled in the 2016 campaign, Democrats are now attempting to re-define “collusion” in order to declare Trump guilty of it. (Snip) Now, with no evidence of such collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, leading Democrats are trying to redefine “collusion” to mean public statements Trump made on the campaign trail and conversations then-Trump adviser Michael Flynn held with Russian officials during the post-election transition period. Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell published a PowerPoint Monday night titled “Evidence of Collusion” that failed to include any evidence

GOP Rep Introduces Legislation to Revoke

Washington Free Beacon, by Haris Alic    Original Article

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) on Tuesday introduced legislation to revoke the citizenship of naturalized immigrants who are involved in gang-related crimes. The Protecting Our Communities from Gang Violence Act would allow the U.S. government to revoke the citizenship of individuals who came to the country as immigrants and got involved in gang activity either prior to or within 10 years of becoming a naturalized citizen. The act seems to be the direct result of an increase in the numbers of crimes being committed by MS-13 gang members in Zeldin´s congressional district and the state of New York as a whole. "From

Trump´s move came less than a week after the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, and several weeks after a shooter in Las Vegas used bump stocks to killed dozens of people. "Just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said. "I expect that these critical

Millions of dollars have poured in to GoFundMe campaigns for victims of the Stoneman Douglas shooting, and nearly a million dollars more has been raised for March for Our Lives, an event being organized by survivors that is set for March 24 in Washington D.C., with related rallies to take place around the country. The march received an additional boost Tuesday when Amal and George Clooney announced they would donate $500,000 to the effort. And when a hundred Stoneman Douglas students arrive in Tallahassee Tuesday night by bus, they’ll be greeted by a group including state Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation,

It was ruled constitutional in 2013 — but then unconstitutional in 2018. Yet it, the Pennsylvania congressional districts map, hasn’t changed in the last five years. Nor has the Keystone State’s constitution. What’s different is Pennsylvania´s Supreme Court; it now has five more Democrats and has decreed that the judges’ own redistricting map, which gives a relative advantage to Democrats, must be implemented. As Politico reported, “Democrats’ hopes of winning the House this fall got a boost Monday with the release of a new congressional-district map in Pennsylvania that could help the party pick up several seats in the battleground

The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.As the Investigative Unit photographed nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block, a group of preschool students happened to walk by

Us. It’s just trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the first rendition of the national anthem at a major sporting event that would be more appropriate for some steamy scene from a movie than honoring those who have fought for the United States of America. Here is Fergie singing the anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Viewer discretion advised: (Video) Reaction varied from hilarity at Fergie’s screeching to jokes about how she was attempting to make Francis Scott Key into a composer of a song more appropriate for the bedroom to simple outrage that Fergie would dishonor the

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

DALLAS, Texas-A leader in Dallas politics does not want the National Rifle Association to meet in his city. Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway is urging the NRA to find a new home for its annual convention. He says the meeting is not appropriate in Dallas in the wake of last week´s school shooting in Florida. Caraway also points to the past tragedies in Dallas, including the 2016 ambush that killed five Dallas officers, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. "It is a tough call when you ask the NRA to reconsider coming to Dallas. But it is putting

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment Friday of a Russian “troll farm” and 13 foreign nationals leaves little doubt Russia was working to undermine US democracy. But the filing also knocks the teeth out of the “collusion” claim. That is, the charges are a strong sign that there’s nothing to Democrats’ charge that Team Trump worked with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Mueller confirms that the trolling entity, the Internet Research Agency, used fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter to spread disinformation, sway public opinion and promote rallies. The “strategic goal” was “to sow discord in the US political system.” Indeed, IRA began

GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago. Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.” Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election. “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening. Romney’s statement Monday is strikingly different from ones he has previously made

Nancy Pelosi gave a marathon speech on illegal immigration the other day. But how would she know much about the realities of open borders, given her palatial retreat in Northern California and multi-millionaire lifestyle that allows wealthy progressives like herself to be exempt from the consequences of her own hectoring? In the end, the House minority leader was reduced to some adolescent racialist patter about her grandson wishing to look more like his Mexican-American friend. I was thinking of the San Francisco Democrat’s speech last week, during a brief drive into our local town, in a region that is ground zero
