George W. Bush uses the Washington Post to make a push for amnesty

Former President George W. Bush is, once again, pushing for amnesty.

Bush, this past week, published an op-ed in the Washington Post calling for “a path to citizenship” for “dreamers.”

The article is called, “Immigration is a defining asset of the United States. Here’s how to restore confidence in our system.”

“Fundamentally American”

In his op-ed, Bush spent a lot of time trying to convince readers that amnesty ought to be granted to dreamers – those children who were brought to America by their illegal immigrant parents.

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

Bush argued that recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty are “fundamentally American,” writing “they ought not be punished for choices made by their parents.”

Elsewhere in the article, Bush granted that giving amnesty to the millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States would be “fundamentally unfair.” He, however, said that he still favored amnesty for those illegal aliens who “earned” citizenship. He explained that by this he meant those illegal immigrants who can show proof of their work history, who have paid a fine and back taxes, who are able to speak English, who know American history, and so on.

In addition to amnesty for illegal immigrants, Bush also said in the article that he supports increasing legal immigration.

Background

Many readers will likely remember that Bush, along with the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA), made a push for amnesty back in 2007.

That effort failed as the proposed bill only received the support of 33 Senate Democrats, 12 Senate Republicans, and 1 independent. Bush has referred to this as one of the biggest disappointments of his two terms in office.

Bush’s latest amnesty push comes as he is going around promoting his new book, “Out of Many, One.”

The book is billed as “a powerful new collection of stories and oil paintings highlighting the inspiring journeys of America’s immigrants and the contributions they make to the life and prosperity of our nation.”

    Did you develop this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my own personal website
    and would like to find out where you got this from
    or what the theme is named. Thanks!

  2. Howdy! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work?
    I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily
    basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my
    experience and feelings online. Please let me
    know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

  4. Thank you for every other great post. Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such a perfect manner of
    writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m at the search for such info.

  5. RINO LITTLE PRIG OF AN ELITIST PRICK. I VOTED FOR THIS TREACHEROUS TRAITOR TWICE …….AND REGRET IT. OF COURSE THE TWO RUNNING AGAINST HIM WERE ABSOLUTELY UNFIT TO BE PRESIDENT OR COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, TRAITORS JOHN HORSE FACED KERRY-HEINZ AND AL THE HUMONGOUS GORE , WHO SOLD HIMSELF TO PALESTINE FOR BILLIONS .

  6. THEY ARE NOT DREAMERS THEY ARE SLACKERS, they came to America to learn to become American citizens instead they went around playing and having a grand old time on the American taxpayers dime they never HAD ANY INTENSION of becoming American citizens they’re getting everything free why become an American citizen when you get handed everything paid for by hard working Americans Bush should be ashamed of himself for even going public being a RINO and all.

  7. Bush is definitely warm and cozy with all the Clinton’s and Obama …it made me sick then and this little thing he thinks is what to do with the border people is just an obnoxious stupid statement coming from a past leader who should just keep his big mouth shut…won’t hurt Bush he has security and is safe…but we people who happen to not have been president do not have that protection…his IQ is also way low for him to make any decisions for we the people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Joe Biden, “President Of The USA?” Joe Biden is a disgrace to the USA! He should be in prison, not the Whitehouse!

  9. They used to say how stupid Bush was. He has a great way of proving them correct. Yes, I voted for him twice…I had NO choice.

    1. Hey Robert, me 2. Every time I hear the name Bush, my first thought is: what stupid thing is going to come out of their mouth. They along with the Clintons and Obama’s are an absolute disgrace for ex Presidents and their families. They need to think before they speak because most of their statements are hurting America.

  10. Agreed! Why give amnesty to illegals? Talk to anyone who has come here legally, worked to get legitimate citizenship and you will see how badly they hate the illegals! They do not appreciate what they are doing, they say it makes all of them look bad, because the illegals are breaking the law. That reflects badly on the legal entrants, they do not like it! Baby Bush is an idiot! He lives in Texas, he knows what is going on. Why doesn’t he speak out against illegals?

  11. George Bush is turning out to be a real slug. What a fraud he is and
    a real disappointment. Bush is just another swamp rat and Rino. Disgusting
    excuse of a man.

  12. I am with the others and regret voting for him. But like the others I felt I had no choice! Bush sure reeled us all in after 9/11. Then come to find out, the FBI KNEW about these terrorists, they were all up on what they were doing and with a little bit of action on their part, the worst terror attack on American Soil didn’t need to happen. What a joke he is. All I have to say is: #BringBackPresidentTrump!

  13. When Bush, Clinton, Obama, Biden, Harris, Pelosi & the rest start opening up the homes & compounds that they live on & take in for how ever long illegals want to stay then I’ll believe what they are saying. Another words a lot more action & a lot less talk or keep your mouth shut. Not a one of the above mentioned where any where near great leaders & some we terrible, why would we listen to you now you had your chance to do go & most of you failed!!??
