Hispanic GOP Congressman Says Jeb Bush Pandering, Doesn’t Respect “Rule Of Law”

During the Heritage Foundation’s monthly “Conversation with Conservatives” meeting with right-of- center Republican congressmen on Capitol Hill, a reporter asked the panel to opine on Jeb Bush’s recent “act of love” comment regarding immigration reform.

Utah congressman Raul Labrador (R), who pulled out of the House bipartisan immigration reform effort, said he disagreed with Bush’s comments, and added that “Comments like Jeb Bush’s and other Republicans, what they do is pandering to a certain group of people.”

Whenever you trivialize the fact that these people have broken the law, I think your message is a little bit off.-Rep. Raul Labrador

Labrador says he wants to address immigration reform in a way that will let Americans know that members of Congress understand the importance of national sovereignty and of being a US citizen.

They are leaving their own nations because, their own nations have no respect for the rule of law, and what people like Jeb Bush and others are saying is that “we also will have no respect for the rule of law, and then we will be turned into the nations that these people are leaving.”

Labrador also warned that if immigration reform is passed in the House “like some Republicans in the conference want to do, they (Hispanics) will not vote Republican.”

The American people, especially Hispanics Americans, are going to vote for the Republican Party, because they feel that our party is providing more opportunity, is providing a better way of life for themselves.-Rep. Raul Labrador (R)

    Finally, someone not only gets it but vocalizes it. How refreshing to have a Congressman from either party actually stand up for their beliefs. And the Hispanics won’te be the only ones to not vote for Republicans

      I agree and will not be voting for anyone pushing amnesty and saying it’s okay to violate our Border Laws!

    Not good, Jeb!

    History has proven that John McCain did not get a lot of mileage from a “pro-amnesty” posture. While his heart may be in the right place, Governor Bush if out of step with the party, the country, even Hispanic voters! This isn’t 2000 or even 2004!

    Brother George pushed an immigration reform bill that was supported by the late Edward Kennedy, Senator McCain and President Obama. But the country gave it a big “thumbs down!”

    As with the Healthcare law, it’s time to start over. There is no desire for “warming up” a failed, ten-year-old idea!

    Pandering is the word.
    He learned it form big brother.
    This last gasp for the clan will be no better that what we have right now. They both want total control over you and your life. Little brother jeb does have a more disarming smile than barry, that’s about it. Both are progressives. Common Core should tell you all you need to know about this specimen.

    The man’s married to a Mexican, do we really think he’s gonna enforce the borders or crack down on employers who hire illegals? This is not to impugn Mexicans, it’s just a reality of where a person’s loyalties and personal views lie, especially when immediate family is a factor. That said, Bush is a progressive who supports Commie Core, that alone makes him unfit for the WH. If the GOP didn’t learn its lesson about trotting out every Latino in high elected office and the zero effect on the Latino voter base, they’re idiots.

    What Jeb is forgetting here is that American Citizen families are struggling and they need to come first and quit making excuses for those who violate our Border Laws. My vote will not go to those pushing amnesty, who do not respect our Border Laws and do not protect or “get it” re American Exceptionalism.
