  • Dec 7 - Bush On Immigration And Economy

    Comment: Bush On Immigration And Economy -
    In the past, the Republican Party has generally been more pro-immigration than we have seen in recent years. The likes of past presidents Reagan and W. Bush and Senators McCain and Rubio have all urged immigration reform. The misconception that the Republican Party, then, is largely anti-immigration is a result of certain exclusionist conservatives who seem to think of immigration as a zero-sum game where each immigrant gaining employment in the country means that a citizen loses one more employment opportunity. Former President Bush hosted a conference this week on the 4% Growth Project where he spoke about the importance of immigrants for economic growth. He argued, “not only do immigrants help build our economy, they invigorate our soul,” and urged all to recognize the contribution of immigrants. CIR remains a top priority, not just for Republicans as seen here, but for the entire nation and our economy. The full article about former President Bush’s conference can be found here.
