Jeb Bush: Amnesty Important Because “Immigrants Are More Fertile”

So much stupid, it hurts.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush argued at a conference earlier this week that America needs immigration reform, which includes paths to amnesty for illegals already in the U.S., because “immigrants are more fertile”, have more stable family lives, and work harder than native-born Americans.

Via the Washington Post (h/t Weasel Zippers):

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) argued Wednesday that the United States should pass immigration reform because the U.S. economy needs the labor of young immigrants, and immigrants are “more fertile.”

“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans,” Bush said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to the Majority conference. “Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.”

Bush said immigrants are an advantage that the United States has over China, Europe and Japan, which don’t have the same immigrant tradition and are struggling to find young laborers.

“If we don’t do it, we will be in decline, because the productivity of this country is dependent upon young people that are equipped to be able to work hard,” Bush said.


Americans have inferior business minds and entrepreneurial spirit than their immigrant counterparts.

Americans are not as fertile.

Americans do not love families as much.

American families are less intact.

Americans do not work as hard, and are older generally than immigrants.

Only Jeb could pack so much stupid into such a small space.

Again, secure the borders first.  Enforce existing immigration laws … for once.  Then consider reforming immigration.

If you can’t enforce a law to begin with, no amount of reform is going to change that.

    The US has very little industry to provide Native Born young with jobs. We send the work to India, China and South America. How then do we give US citizens jobs as well as immigrants? What percent of the immigrant population is on welfare. If they became citizens could you guarantee they’d be off welfare? Don’t think you can.
