Jeb Bush on Senate Immigration Bill – “The influx of low-skill and high-skill immigrants will be good”

The influx of low-skill and high-skill immigrants will also be good for working-class voters because it will spur the economy, he said. “Absolutely, a growing economy creates opportunities for everybody,” – Jeb Bush

Seriously? With unemployment in the U.S. at over 7%, and unemployment for blacks in the U.S. currently at 13.5%,  I have no idea how he even said that with a straight face.

Bush also sought to allay conservatives’ fears that immigration would create a wave of Hispanic voters in 12 or 16 years. “My hope is … they will not apply for citizenship,” Bush said, who may run for president in three or seven years. “They want to come out of the shadows and be treated with dignity and respect, they don’t necessarily want to be citizens,” he said.
