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.

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

Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

Mark Zuckerberg colludes with Russia

The Bolshevik Revolution turned 100 last October. As Friday’s indictment of Russia´s Internet Research Agency reminds us, it´s been 100 years of tyrannical and murderous Russian regimes working to subvert democracy wherever they can and distort American public opinion by any means they can devise. (Snip) As of this week, Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Facebook, is now directly colluding with Putin to influence world opinion in favor of the tyrant´s regime. It’s happening before your very eyes. Zuckerberg created one of the world’s largest and most important platforms for spreading news and information — and fake news and disinformation. It was

The specificity here is pretty damning. The FBI released a stunning admission today admitting they received prior a specific warning about Broward County Nikolas Cruz and his threats to carry out a school shooting. The FBI took no action. (Snip) The backdrop of this admission is especially troublesome as the FBI previously also admitted they were forewarned about the Tsarnaev brothers in the Boston Marathon Bombing 2013 and did nothing; and perhaps even more disturbing was the prior warning about the 2016 Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

ICE arrests 212 illegals, targets
122 businesses in LA sweep

Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they aren’t hiring illegal immigrants. Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because it’s a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails. That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agency’s deputy director.

Best president: JFK tops,

The nation’s adoration of moderate former Democratic President John F. Kennedy continues, making him the most popular recent president, according to a new survey. A new University of Virginia Center for Politics-Reuters/Ipsos survey, released in advance of President´s Day, found on a 1 to 10 rating that Kennedy had the best, followed by Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. And while another recent poll found that Reagan was the past president most wanted to return to the White House, it is now Obama at the top. A previous version of this story inaccurately quoted the poll. In the survey, President Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not yet done investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election after indicting 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for seeking to interfere in the 2016 election, according to a report Friday. The indictments cover just a portion of the investigation, which is expected to continue on for months, a person familiar with the probe told Bloomberg. The probe is also seeking to determine if Trump obstructed justice, the person said. Mueller has not publicly confirmed that his team has ever looked into possible efforts obstruct justice.

The criminal indictment of 13 Russians for allegedly trying to influence “U.S. political and electoral processes” provides no evidence of any collusion between these Russians – or any other Russian officials – and the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential race. While the description of alleged Russian activities is very troubling, it is important to note that the indictment makes no mention of any hacking or other activity that changed ballots, vote counts, or actually interfered with the election. In essence, the indictment is for trying to run the typical type of public misinformation campaign that the Soviet KGB was

The Supreme Court appears poised to reject the Justice Department’s request to overturn a lower court order requiring the continued administration of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. The high court’s Friday afternoon orders list showed no action on the petition, a strong indication it will be denied. Scheduling constraints require the court to act quickly if they intend to hear the case before adjourning this summer. The Supreme Court sits from early October to late June, and the schedule for a given term is generally set by January. If the justices planned to add a case to their

On March 24 students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and other schools around the country will march in hopes of pressuring Congress to pass more gun control. Although the March is officially titled “March for Our Lives,” BuzzfeedNews reports the march is indeed focused on securing gun control: (Video/Tweet) ABC News reports that South Broward High School students have already begun rallying for gun control, with Sophomore Genesis Campbell leading chants while holding a sign that read, “No more silence, end gun violence.” And this all comes after Nikolas Cruz complied with gun control to acquire a rifle, then

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."

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

Adam Rippon, the openly gay figure skater who helped the United States win a bronze medal in team competition and became one of the biggest breakout stars of the PyeongChang Olympics, has gotten his first big break before the Winter Games have even concluded. Rippon, a darling of the competition for saying things that have been at turns smart, creative, and refreshing for viewers, has been hired by NBC as a correspondent for the rest of the Games. NBC confirmed the news, first reported by USA Today, with Rippon expected to work on TV as well as the digital and

Mitt Romney said Friday that the nation must act swiftly to address the scourge of gun violence, stating that he was open to tougher measures like "enhanced background checks" if they would help keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. "What happened is unthinkable and unimaginable," he said after offering prayers for the victims of the Florida shooting. "We must take action to prevent tragedies like this from happening again." Speaking at a fundraising dinner held by Utah County Republicans in his first official appearance as a U.S. Senate candidate, Romney said he hoped to see the state generate

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock.

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

Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta – whose emails were hacked and leaked during the 2016 campaign – called out President Trump Sunday for not doing more to punish the Russians for their interference or prep the nation for when the Kremlin tries to do it again. ´If this is information warfare, then I think he´s the first draft-dodger in the war,´ Podesta claimed of Trump on Face the Nation. Asked about Trump´s motivations, Podesta said that Trump´s psyche is ´complicated,´ but added that ´he certainly can´t accept that this activity may have helped him, and I think he just constantly tries

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

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential presidential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides. (Snip) A presidential candidate twice before, Biden would be 78 on Inauguration Day if elected in 2020, a concerning prospect for some Democrats even though he´s only a few years older than Trump. One possibility that Biden´s longtime advisers have discussed privately is that he could announce his intention to serve only one term, clearing the path for his running mate to take over in 2024 and potentially setting up Democrats

Friday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart. And I am just an icon.” (Snip) This will come as little surprise to those who have been following these Olympic Games. Even before the Games began, Rippon, one of the first openly gay male athletes to compete for the United States in an Olympics, was in the headlines over a feud with Vice President Mike Pence. Since, he’s become one of the most recognizable stars of these Olympics, a celebrated member of the gay community, as well as
