Comment: GOP Immigration Conversation
The Washington Post reports that at a celebration of 25th anniversary of his father's presidency, Jeb Bush made comments about Immigration Reform that set him apart from other potential candidates for the 2016 Presidential primary.

"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 families - the dad who loved their children - was worried that their children didn't have food on the table," he said. "And they 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 an act of love. It's an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families."
Here is to hoping that the Republican Party finally comes to its senses and embraces the sensible immigration stances of its past Presidents like Ronald Reagan and George W Bush. Let us know your thoughts by writing to us at
