• Watch Jeb Bush Creepily Flip-flop From ‘Citizenship’ to ‘Legal Status’

    Three years ago, Jeb Bush was publicly supporting full citizenship for immigrants living in the United States illegally.

    And now, some say thanks to the current political climate and Donald Trump, Jeb Bush has shifted his position on illegal aliens from full citizenship to “legal status.”

    Wednesday, Bush told reporters from the New Hampshire Union Leader that he does not support a pathway to full citizenship. When asked, Bush said “No.”

    “What do we do with the 11 million people here? I think the answer is earned legal status,” Bush said.

    But, according to the Washington Times, Jeb Bush very proudly proclaimed that if he were president he would sign a bill into law allowing for citizenship for illegal immigrants.

    From the Washington Times:

    Earlier this year, Mr. Bush said he would be open to legislation that included a pathway to citizenship but added that there was not enough political support for the idea. In a 2013 Wall Street Journal op-ed, he called on lawmakers to pass the immigration overhaul that Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — two of his rivals for the nomination now — helped push through the Senate.

    Sure. Just about every politician flip-flops on one issue or another. But Jeb Bush’s flip-flopping on this issue is infuriating because Bush now wants to take the moral high ground and yell legal status when just a few short years ago he was screaming full citizenship.

    Being lied to by Jeb Bush feels worse when you realize how hard the establishment is trying to push this squish down our throats.

    If Jeb Bush can’t be trusted on an issue as important as immigration, how can he expect be trusted on anything?
