Jeb Bush Plays Race Card on Anchor Baby Issue!

By John W. Lillpop

When George W. Bush spoke as President, many (most) people did not understand what he said! Poor grammar, syntax problems, and use of non-existent words made following W’s conversations more than a little challenging.

On the other hand, Brother Jeb Bush, in quest of the US presidency which he sees as his rightful birthright as the result of being born a Bush, is easily understood, too easily some would say.

Jeb, you see, has the habit of saying really dumb, outrageous things that would actually benefit from some of W’s garbled, incoherent speak.

Indeed, Jeb would be better off if his recent comments on the Anchor Baby issue were not understood.

In that fiasco, Jeb tried to shift the blame for Anchor Baby abuse from Hispanics, apparently his chosen people, to Asians, apparently not among his favorite folks.

As reported at the reference:

Republican White House hopeful Jeb Bush on Monday accused Asians of abusing rules allowing infants born in the United States to be American citizens, amid a campaign row over immigration.

Bush has clashed with rivals -- including the Republican presidential frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump and top Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton -- over use of the term "anchor babies," a derogatory description of children born in the United States to undocumented parents.

But on Monday during a visit to Texas near the US border with Mexico, when responding to a question about whether the "anchor baby" row would hurt his ability to win the Hispanic vote, Bush said the situation has more to do with other immigrants.

"What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed where there's organized efforts -- and frankly it's more related to Asian people coming into our country, having children in that organized effort, taking advantage of a noble concept with birthright citizenship," Bush said.

"My background, my life, the fact that I'm immersed in the immigrant experience -- this is ludicrous for the Clinton campaign and others to suggest that somehow I'm using a derogatory term,”

"I support the 14th Amendment," he said of the constitutional guarantee of citizenship to anyone born in the country.”

So, just to be clear, Jeb Bush supports the 14th Amendment for illegal aliens from Mexico and other Latin nations, but gets riled when Asians try the same trick!

THAT is why Jeb Bush should never be president!
