Acts of love …

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush got it right … calling for compassion for illegal immigrants and recognizing that most undocumented workers come to the US to provide for their families: “Yes, they broke the law,” Mr Bush told a reporter, “but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love … It shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.” This doesn’t sound like a man who is running for office. But if he does, and if he wins, would a Jeb Bush presidency produce any real changes in US immigration policy? Probably not. After all, Republicans controlled the White House, both houses of Congress, and the politically-active Supreme Court from 2001 to 2006, yet federal spending went up and not a federal government agency was cut during that bygone era. Nevertheless, prior probability applauds Mr Bush for appreciating the plight of most undocumented workers …

We are all Americans …
