AZBD Note: Opposing treason “makes no sense” to Jeb Bush.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush courted Wall Street donors on Monday, saying that he could not understand amnesty opponents who made no sense to him.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Bush addressed a Manhattan Institute crowd along with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), who has also embraced amnesty legislation, and doubled down on his support for an immigration reform bill that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers while not securing the border.
“For the life of me I have a hard time understanding why people are fearful of our own heritage, our own history,” Bush reportedly said. “The rules are you come to this country, you pursue your dreams, you create value for yourself and your families and others and great things happens to you and to our country. Why would we ignore that at time when we need to restart and rejuvenate our economy? It makes no sense to me.”
