No path to citizenship through the Bush

One of the few things that made President George W. Bush a decent man was the fact that he was actually in favor of helping illegal immigrants to become citizens.
On Monday, his brother, Jeb Bush, a possible presidential candidate in 2016, took a hard stance to the right of that issue.
At one time, the former Governor of Florida embraced a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, but now he has flipped that position.
“It’s just a matter of common sense and a matter of the rule of law,” Bush said. And he said if we don’t follow that law we are destined to have “another wave of illegal immigrants coming into the country.”
As a country of immigrants, it’s complete and total crap to demonize those who want to come into our country with the hopes of becoming citizens.
Only three months ago, George W. Bush spoke to the US Labor Market, where he said that immigrants “come with new skills and new ideas,” that they “fill a critical gap in our labor market,” and that “America can be a lawful society and welcoming society at the same time.”
For the first time I would have to agree with George W. What kind of country would we be if we herded out our immigrants like cattle? I for one think we are a better country than that.
Looks like Jeb Bush can kiss his presidential aspirations goodbye.
