Krauthammer Nails Bush

Not an “act of love.”

Commentator Charles Krauthammer responded to Jeb Bush’s outrageous assertion that coming to the U.S. illegally in order to provide for one’s family is “an act of love” and shouldn’t be punished quite so much. Krauthammer said, “I grant him the complete sincerity and honesty of his view, he’s always had that kind of approach. But that’s leading with your chin. After all, I mean there are millions of people around the world equally compassionate about the future of their children who are waiting patiently and legally in line and who love their children no less, and yet there is supposed to be this special compassion for those who jump the fence and break the law. Secondly, there’s a question if it were just one person … or one family who jumped the fence, it wouldn’t be a national issue, but it’s 11 million, and then it becomes a national issue, an issue of sovereignty and the president has to make a statement that an elementary principle of sovereignty is we control who comes into the country.” Jeb Bush may want to think twice about any presidential bid.
