    Jeb Bush Joins Rubio Against Arizona Bill - Daniel Foster - The Corner on National Review Online

    Jeb Bush Joins Rubio Against Arizona Bill [Daniel Foster]

    The former Florida governor, a proponent of comprehensive immigration reform, spoke out against the Arizona immigration bill:

    "I think it creates unintended consequences," he said in a telephone interview with POLITICO Tuesday. "It's difficult for me to imagine how you're going to enforce this law. It places a significant burden on local law enforcement and you have civil liberties issues that are significant as well."

    The measure, signed into law last Friday, would require police to check the immigration status of any individuals they reasonably suspect are illegal immigrants and arrest them if they can't prove legal status.

    Bush said he understood the anger that prompted the bill, but that immigration should remain a federal issue.

    "I don't think this is the proper approach," he said.

    Funny we hear all about "unintended consequences", yet not a peep about the moronic "war" on (some) drugs that is fueling the gang violence along the southern border.

    And the band played on......

    Dude...shhhhhh. They want all of this stuff going on so they can solve the problem when they get off their fat asses and decide it's time.

    How can they claim it's a crisis when the crisis is over.

    This election cycle the theme is supposed to be Fat-Cats in banking...not wet-backs killing ranchers.

    Or married to and a parent of Latinos. :lol:

    Funny how people that have Latino relatives can see past the bullshit.

    Good for Jeb, though, he doesn't totally suck.

    JEB is wrong on this as was his brother. Enough said on it. And the NRO did mention Rubio...sans LINK...but if you dig deeper Rubio did indeed say a few thing regarding this topic...

    But he made this subject clear when he stated : “an excuse to try and jam through amnesty legislation”...

    Imagine that? Rubio has this called as to the real intent of some. That would tell me that he has the LAW in mind, and will wait to see the result to challanges.

    Oh...The link to Rubio's comments?

    HERE

    Note to OP? Check this shit out, eh?

    For once, I agree with you, Dooodeee...... Legalize them all, provide the fixes for the addicts, and cures for those that would get off. Not only cheaper than the 'War on Drugs', but also would eliminate most gangs and violence associated with the drug trade.

    Interestingly some of the most adamant opponents of legalizing pot in California are the growers in North California. Doing that would really cut into the prices they get.
