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.

The House Intelligence Committee on Saturday released a long-awaited Democratic rebuttal to a GOP memo that outlined alleged government surveillance abuses during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) The Democratic rebuttal finds that the FBI had an "independent basis" for investigating Page´s motivations, and that he had been targeted for recruitment by the Russians. It also claims that the DOJ "repeatedly informed the Court about Steele´s background, credibility, and potential bias." It also says that the Justice Department infomed the FISA court that Stelle was hired by "politically-motivated U.S. persons and entities and that his research appeared intended for use "to

Plans for President Trump’s requested military parade in the nation’s capital are moving forward after National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster ordered the military to start planning the event for Veterans Day, a senior U.S. official confirmed Friday to Fox News. Trump has requested that the procession run from the White House to Capitol Hill on the national holiday, which this year coincides with the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. The date of the planned parade: Nov. 11. McMaster drafted a memo for the Pentagon earlier this week, reportedly telling Secretary of Defense James Mattis, per a request from

He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called on Friday for a "conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," and questioned why Americans should have access to "military weapons." "I think it is time for us to have a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," Rice told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. "I don’t understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons." "We wouldn’t, we wouldn’t say you can go out and buy a tank," she continued. "So I do think we need to have that conversation." Rice´s comments

John Kasich’s inner circle is gearing up for a possible presidential run in 2020 — actively weighing the prospect of a Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump against the feasibility of a long-shot general election campaign as an independent. And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor. That’s one reason

NRA strikes back at Florida sheriff: ´Your office failed this community´ The National Rifle Association (NRA) on Friday slammed a local sheriff in Florida, saying his office failed to protect students in last week´s high school shooting. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel had knocked the gun lobby during a televised town hall on Wednesday night, accusing the group of "not standing up for these students." “I understand you’re standing up for the NRA and I understand that’s what you’re supposed to do,” Israel told NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch at the CNN town hall. “But you just told this group of

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

A Harvard law grad argued Thursday that armed teachers would shoot black students. Elie Mystal, who graduated and practiced law with a Harvard University law degree, made the case for why armed teachers would shoot black students, reported The College Fix. He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

Barack Obama posted a chilling message to his Twitter account Thursday to the teens marching and organizing for gun control. He told the youth fighting for gun control ‘we’ve been waiting for you’. The Gateway Pundit was the first publication to question the media’s agenda in only propping up students who push the anti-gun narrative. We took a lot of heat for it, but we stand by our reporting. CNN and other fake news media organizations refused to allow pro-gun students to voice their opinions. It was also revealed CNN scripted their Wednesday night anti-gun town hall. The left is

CNN: Trump Shouldn’t Call Mass Shooter
A ‘Sicko’ Because It’s Stigmatizing

This strikes me as really pushing for any excuse to attack Trump for any reason whatsoever. CNN has a whole story devoted to shaming Trump for calling the Parkland shooter a “sicko” on the grounds that it’s stigmatizing to people with mental health problems who aren’t all mass shooters of children. From CNN: (Snip) And although Trump has said he wants to focus on mental health to stop school shootings, calling Cruz a “sicko” doesn’t help, those experts claim… “When it comes to mental health, language really matters. This is not about being politically correct. It’s about wanting to do

Two people who work to prepare food for students at New York University have lost their jobs for serving a meal featuring food and beverages believed to be stereotypically associated with black cuisine. The New York Times reports: On Tuesday, a dining hall at New York University advertised a special meal in honor of Black History Month. On the menu? Barbecue ribs, corn bread, collard greens, and two beverages with racist connotations: Kool-Aid and watermelon-flavored water. Nia Harris, a sophomore in N.Y.U.´s College of Arts & Science, sought an explanation from Weinstein Passport Dining Hall´s head cook.
