Jeb Bush weighs in on immigration
influx and urges House Republicans
to push comprehensive reform

CNN, by Kevin Bohn

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/24/2014 1:03:02 PM

Washington – After several weeks in which the influx of tens of thousands of undocumented children illegally crossing the border into the United States has dominated the headlines, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wrote an op-ed about the issue, calling for a change in how the children are handled after they are arrested - and also urging his fellow Republicans not to use this as an "excuse" to abandon comprehensive immigration reform. His Wall Street Journal opinion piece that published Wednesday evening is similar to the statement he released to CNN last week and is just the second time he´s

It is stunning to me that someone who is allegedly so intelligent could be so ignorant and stupid. With moron RINOs like him we are absolutely doomed.

Except for those deserving few who may demonstrate true cause for asylum or protection from sex trafficking

Why must they come all the way to the USA to escape that? There are thousands of miles of territories and countries that are a closer refuge. It makes no sense to come all the way to the USA if that is the only reason to come here. Its a lousy excuse.

He´s not intelligent. Clint Bolick is. Jeb has the worst instincts of anyone in the Bush family, and that says something. Intellectual lightweight, mushy, feckless governance from a position gained by name recognition and a lack of any agenda. Unlimited immigration, federal government control of curriculum, those are his signature issues. Bigger federal government. That and rewarding big donors and cronies.

Conservatives should pray that this is the establishment´s horse for the next presidential derby.

We don´t want our laws broken, our property taxes doubling to accomodate diseased people who are looking for "free stuff".
Why don´t you buy Mexico and make it Utopia ?

I read the referenced Bush piece, written with Clint Bolick. The article was very specific and had some good ideas. "Comprehensive" is not the word I would have used. He speaks of how ours is the only system in the world with an immigration law emphasizing reunification of families rather than allowing in the most qualified people. By using reunification, we have no control over the benefits of that particular immigrant. Border insecurity was also addressed. I believe the CNN synopsis to be more than a bit unfair.

No Jeb - we need immigration enforcement of existing laws first.
Refugees are only entitled to asylum when they reach first country - not country of their choice.
Gingrich is correct.
Bushes rehabilitation of disgraced Bill Clinton and Hilary´s Senate seat has done long term harm to body politic.
Why did GHWB and Jeb meet with Obama in WH for a photo with Obama?
Were the bushes sporting Obama to keep 2016 open for Jeb?

Has he read it?Have any of them read it?How many thousand pages is it?All that we know about this new wonderful law is who will pay for it.That would be us.

Go away, Jeb. And go ask your brother to tell you about the WH and Congressional phone banks melting down when he and his ´´act of love´´ buddies tried to do comprehensive immigration reform with the Donks.

No comprehensive anything!!! Haven´t you reviewed the wreckage left by comprehensive obamaCare and comprehensive Dodd-Frank. Comprehensive is a non-starter. Immigration reform needs to be done in logical steps, one at a time. First step: lock down the border. Second step: Fix the visa system.

Rep. Tim Bishop (D., N.Y.) warned during a recent speech that up to 40 radicalized U.S. citizens who have fought alongside the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) have already returned to the United States, where they could pose a terrorist threat. Bishop claims that of the 100 or so Americans who have traveled to the Middle East to join ISIL’s ranks, some 40 have returned and are currently being surveilled by the FBI, according to his remarks, which were filmed and uploaded to YouTube last week. “One of the concerns is the number of U.S. citizens who have

Bill Ayers, according to the right, is Barack Obama’s terrorist trainer and ghostwriter. Upon further inspection, Ayers is nothing quite as dramatic or fearsome. While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest Friday said Obama would travel to Atlanta Tuesday for a briefing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on both Ebola and a respiratory virus in the Midwest. The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”
