Jeb Bush: Illegal immigration an ‘act of love’ — Video

jebbushThings like this are the reason I never, ever want to see Jeb Bush’s name on a ballot.

According to the former governor of Florida, coming to the U.S. illegally isn’t just a crime, it’s an act of love.  Seriously.

Here’s video of Bush making the outlandish claim:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“There are means by which we can control our border better than we have and there should be penalties for breaking the law,” he told Fox News’ Shannon Bream from the George H.W. Bush presidential library in College Station, Texas.

”But the way I look at this — and this is not, you know, I’m going to say this and it will be on tape, and so be it — the way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their family’s, you know, a dad who loved their children was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they, you know, wanted to make sure their family was intact and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s kind of — it’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family.”

No, Jeb, it’s a crime, pure and simple.
Keep in mind, this is the same guy who said reform is needed because immigrants are more fertile
