Jeb Bush Praises Illegal Immigrants as ‘Risk Takers,’ Defends Common Core

jeb-bushIn a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as “risk takers” who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core.

According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida.

“People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added.

Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law.

Bush also said he was the “Eat Your Broccoli Governor” and implied he would be telling conservatives to embrace policies like amnesty and Common Core, which is reminiscent of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s all-in approach to global warming during his failed 2012 presidential campaign.

Bush accused those opposed to the Common Core as embracing the “status quo.”

“You tell me which society is going to be the winner in this 21st Century: The one that worries about how they feel, or the one that worries about making sure the next generation has the capacity to eat everybody’s lunch?” Bush stated.

Speculation has intensified about whether Jeb Bush will become the third person in his family to seek the White House. A Reuters report recently indicated that he was giving a 2016 candidacy “a serious look,” and UVA ranked him as the top GOP presidential contender on paper.

Conservatives, however, distrust him on issues like amnesty, Common Core, and crony capitalism. As Breitbart News has reported, though Bush may be the establishment’s new top choice, a national Washington Post-ABC News poll found that half the country would “definitely” not vote for Bush in a general election, “which may greatly undercut the electability argument that all establishment candidates and their backers like to tout to the mainstream press.”

    In my mind the issue is not the certain fact all of our elected officials work night and day bringing about the total elimination of the white race. In my mind the issue is- when will white people wake up and smell the tacos?
