Jeb Bush: Immigrants ‘More Fertile’

Jeb Bush just doesn’t understand what his fellow Republicans don’t like about immigration reform. Bush, whose wife was born in Mexico, knows that the U.S. needs immigrants—particularly their willingness to work hard and supposed exceptional fertility—to maintain a competitive advantage over other countries like China and Japan. “Immigrants create far more business than native-born Americans,” he said at a Faith and Freedom Coalition conference earlier this week. “Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.”
