Jeb Bush Says Arizona Immigration Law Is Wrong Approach; His Own Kids Would Look Suspicious
Florida Senate President Pro Tempore Michael Bennett has proposed an immigration law similar to the one in Arizona, but former Governor Jeb Bush says he’s against it because his own children might look suspicious to the police.
The former Florida governor quipped that it was obvious he was not running for office, noting that his views differed from most of his Republican colleagues, The Denver Post reported last weekend.
While he is sympathetic to the plight of Arizona officials forced to deal with all the problems linked to a porous frontier, he believes there are solutions other than a law criminalizing illegals, The Post reported.
“It’s the wrong approach,” Bush was quoted as saying. “The net result is not much has been done.”
Bush said if the United States deported 12 million illegal residents from across the country, it would cost billions and not be very effective, according to The Post.
He recommended tightening the border and improving programs to more smoothly integrate immigrants into American society, it said.
Bennett claims his bill is “not a racial profiling bill.I do not like the Arizona bill, and don’t think we should use racial profiling — that we’re in agreement on.”Click here for reuse options!
