WP – 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.
Umm, I literally spent less than a minute Googling this issue and already found concrete evidence that Jeb Bush is right. Hispanic, Asian, and African immigrants have more kids than Blacks and Whites. Period. Look at that quote. Only an asshole could read that quote and find something negative in there.
It’s commonly known that I like politics a lot more than most of the bloggers on this site, but this is the shit that makes me hate them all over again. Everybody is so stuck on their own side. Don’t even care about making the country better unless it’s by someone or some idea from their own side. It’s dumb. Jeb Bush isn’t saying immigrants can’t read and are only good for gardening and sleeping outside of Home Depot. He only said positive things. Fertility is a good thing, especially when the Chinese outnumber us 4-to-1. Fuck everybody.
