George W. Bush won’t sit still

The former President urged us all to support amnesty for illegal aliens brought to our country as minors and those living in US cities illegally.

“Americans who favor a path to citizenship for those brought here as children, known as ‘dreamers,’ are not advocating open borders,” Bush wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.

Bush also mentioned Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and encouraged everyone to support the permanent amnesty for DACA recipients.

According to the former president, DACA recipients are “fundamentally American” and our country is their home.

“They ought not be punished for choices made by their parents,” he wrote.

Bush is in the middle of his media tour promoting  Out of Many, One, his book filled with stories and paintings of illegal aliens.

Bush is convinced that this amnesty is the right deal and even supports amnesty for those who “earned” their citizenship.

It’s interesting to note that Bush proposed amnesty for illegal aliens in the US who had work history, paid a fine and back taxes. The same goes for those who speak English, know American history, and pass a criminal background check.

“The United States is better off when talented people bring their ideas and aspirations here,” he wrote.

Bush called for increasing legal immigration, adding that it was “a choice that both parties should be able to get behind.” He proposed increasing temporary immigrant visas for seasonal job positions.

In 2007, Bush did an effort to pass amnesty for illegal aliens. He was supported by late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA).

The bill was nothing but a big failure. Only 33 Senate Democrats, 12 Senate Republicans, and one independent voted to support the bill. Fifteen Senate Democrats and 37 Senate Republicans and one independent voted against the bill.

In his interview with Norah O’Donnell, Bush said that the inability to pass immigration reform was one of the worst disappointments of his presidency.

“I campaigned on immigration reform,” he said. “I made it abundantly clear to voters this is something I intended to do.”
