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.

Centrists on cusp of forcing
immigration votes as petition grows
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Juliegrace Brufke    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/24/2018 12:28:04     Post Reply
Two more House Republicans have joined the discharge petition to force votes on immigration, potentially leaving centrists just two signatures short of success. Reps. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) signed the discharge petition Thursday before the House left town for the Memorial Day recess. If all Democrats endorse the petition, just two more GOP signatures would be needed to reach the magic number of 218. House Republican leaders and conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus have fought to stop the petition, which was introduced by Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.). Leaders have warned that bypassing the usual process for

‘Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable.” It was a little after midnight on May 4, 2016. FBI lawyer Lisa Page was texting her paramour, FBI counterespionage agent Peter Strzok, about the most stunning development to date in the 2016 campaign: Donald Trump was now the inevitable Republican nominee. He would square off against Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ certain standard-bearer. The race was set . . . between two major-party candidates who were both under investigation by the FBI.

Former President Barack Obama’s education secretary and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel were planning how to turn a national tragedy into a legislative victory for the administration two days after the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Conn. That’s according to emails obtained under a Freedom of Information request from a reporter from the Baltimore Post. On the morning of Dec. 14, 2012, a 20-year-old man killed his mother in their home then traveled to Sandy Hook Elementary School — a semi-automatic rifle and two pistols in tow. He broke into the school and killed another 26 people — 20 of them

Why exactly did nearly half the country vote for Donald Trump? Why also did the arguments of Never Trump Republicans and conservatives have marginal effect on voters? Despite vehement denunciations of the Trump candidacy from many pundits on the right and in the media, Trump nonetheless got about the same percentage of Republican voters (88–90 percent) as did McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012, who both were handily defeated in the Electoral College. Here are some of reasons voters knew what they were getting with Trump and yet nevertheless assumed he was preferable to a Clinton presidency. 1) Was Trump

NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell said she thinks American diplomacy is better on TV than in real life. On Monday, Mitchell interviewed actor Erich Bergen, co-star of the CBS “Madam Secretary” in which Tea Leoni plays CIA-analyst-turned-Secretary-of-State Elizabeth McCord. Mitchell praised the show for its portrayal of what she thinks diplomacy should look like rather what it has been since President Trump took office. “As we’ve had a downturn at the State Department, at least it’s one place we can watch diplomacy in action, at least once a week on Sunday night,” Mitchell said.
