Jeb Bush: Immigrants are more fertile

posted at 2:01 pm on June 14, 2013 by Allahpundit

So Pavlovian is the instinct among some to attack Republicans as racist that Bush is actually catching heat for saying this, even though (a) he’s famously one of the most pro-amnesty members of the pro-amnesty GOP establishment, (b) he thinks a high immigrant birth rate is, unambiguously, a good thing, and (c) he’s correct that immigrants, i.e. foreign-born women, tend to have more children than native-born Americans, although the gap between them has been shrinking of late. Dave Weigel:

Me too. At worst, Jeb’s guilty of being imprecise in his word choice. He doesn’t mean immigrants are naturally more fertile, obviously, just that they choose to have more kids. “Birth rate” or “fertility rate” would have been better, but whatever. You know what he meant. There is something gawkworthy about this, but it has nothing to do with phantom racist insinuations. It’s that Bush is presenting his point as a way to … preserve the welfare state. Higher immigrant birth rates equals more taxpayers equals a reprieve of a few decades or more on the Social Security/Medicare fiscal implosion. If you like entitlements, the more amnesty the better. That’s not an argument that’ll win him any conservative votes in a 2016 primary, but less conservative Republicans and everyone to their left — which is most of the electorate — love entitlements and will listen very carefully to proposals on how to preserve the status quo. “Worried about Medicare being there? Let the immigrants pay for it!” is a shrewd way to appeal to a country that’s gotten used to not paying its own bills. Imagine how far down the road we could kick the entitlement crisis if we opened the borders entirely and handed out citizenship to people on their way in.

Let the backlash to Jeb be a reminder, though, that no Republican is safe from cheap demagoguery on immigration, no matter how leftist their record on the subject. Rubio thinks his work on the Gang of Eight bill will more or less immunize him from “Republicans hate Latinos” talking points in 2016. He’s kidding himself. Democrats will work overtime on that message, even if immigration reform passes with heavy Republican support, precisely because they’re keen to torch any small inroads the GOP might make with Latinos over the next three years. Every small (and I emphasize “small”) gesture that Rubio makes right now towards tightening the eligibility requirements for legalization will be used against him. He’ll be clubbed endlessly too for his lame pander yesterday about Leahy’s gay-spouse amendment to the bill being a dealbreaker. That’s useful to him in winning social conservatives in Iowa in 2016, but it’ll be less useful when he sells himself to the GOP as holding some special appeal to young voters because of his youth and then ends up being hammered on one of young adults’ favorite hot-button issues. If lefties can pull this on Jeb Bush, of all people, imagine what they’ll pull on Rubio.

Well the matriarch of Clan Bush says she doesn’t want Jeb to run.

so there’s that.

workingclass artist on June 14, 2013 at 2:23 PM

Yep. When his own mother spoke out against him–that’s how I read it, given he’s next in line–it really says it all.

Christien on June 14, 2013 at 2:33 PM

Yeah.

Not pretty trying to muzzle Mom on TeeVee.

I thought it was a riot…But then again Babs’ gaffes are usually entertaining and revealing.

I think at this point she’s just sick and tired of the whole family political dynasty quest…and is relieved W is finally out of it.

Now she sees the whole machine gearing up for Jeb and the thirdie running for Agr. Commish in Texas…or maybe she’s just sick of Carl Rove?

They aren’t anymore fertile. They don’t abort their offspring. Sometimes Jeb Bush can be pretty stupid.

BetseyRoss on June 14, 2013 at 2:27 PM

They aren’t necessarily more fertile. They just start screwing when they are 14. U.S. Hispanics have a higher rate of illegitimate births and abortions than whites – so much for Jeb’s “family values” sermon.

bw222 on June 14, 2013 at 2:34 PM

Many come from socialist, third world countries. When they get here, it’s like the lotteria! You get more money the more kids you pop out.

HornetSting on June 14, 2013 at 2:40 PM

In fact technically illegal aliens aren’t supposed to be on welfare, and some states might actually enforce that. But when they have an anchor baby, that baby can be on food stamps via the mother, so children enable it all to start.

slickwillie2001 on June 14, 2013 at 2:44 PM

Isn’t that the argument Labor made in Britain to justify opening the floodgates to immigration? It doesn’t seem to be working out too well for them.

mbs on June 14, 2013 at 2:19 PM

Yeppers!

From a year ago…

Several decades ago, Labour made the decision to take an “open borders” position and champion massive immigration. They did it for two reasons, which will be very familiar for everyone here:

1. They believed in multiculturalism and that nationalism was a bad thing. “Countries” and “patriotism” were bad things. Brits needed to become “citizens of the world.”

AND

2. They knew that they would be able to get the votes of the, mainly, third world and Eastern European immigrants.

But, something happened that they never foresaw:

They lost their entire base of blue-collar, union voters…even many of those “on the dole” turned on Labour. Why?

Because they felt that Labour put immigrants and, especially, illegal immigrants ahead of native citizens. Imagine being a veteran of WWII or a child, whose father died fighting Hitler, and being told that an illegal, who managed to stay undetected in the country for 6 weeks, was entitled to all of the rights and benefits that they are afforded?

On top of that, if these people even mentioned immigration, they were labeled racists and bigots. One of the defining moments of the 2010 election was when former Prime Minister Gordon Brown was caught on tape calling a life-long Labour voter — an elderly woman concerned about the influx of immigrants from Eastern Europe –a “bigot.” She had legitimate concerns and his words about her were so elitist, arrogant and insulting that no amount of damage control and personal apologies could save either him or Labour. More devastating for Labour was their failure to recognise that she wasn’t some old, oddball crank — a one-off aberration. Sadly for the myopic idiots in Labour, she spoke for much of their “base.”

Now, even Labour’s leaders like “Ed the Red” Miliband (they call him that for a reason and it isn’t because he has red hair) have admitted that their immigration and multicultural policies have been a disaster for the country and their party. Oh, and guess what? We’ve been given “permission” by Labour and the other Leftist elites like the BBC to actually discuss “immigration.” It is no longer “racist” to do so. No word yet on whether the ridiculous British press will stop referring to all Muslims as “Asian immigrants.” In London, you’ll hear some of the really “smart” people referring to a Muslim immigrant from, say, the Bahamas as an “Asian immigrant.” It is not unlike the idiocy of calling all blacks “African-Americans.” I can assure you that the blacks in the UK or South Africa do not consider themselves to be “African-Americans.”

Back to the rift, drift, and schism between Leftist parties and their natural constituents… The thing is that this isn’t just happening in the UK. It is occurring across the Continent. You see, even Marx and Engels understood and recognised that socialism would never work in heterogeneous populations. Leftists here point to Scandinavia and say, “Look, Socialism works and everyone gets along.” Apart from the fact that Scandinavian countries began moving away from Socialism in the 1990s, this argument overlooks a very serious phenomenon that is occurring, which was wholly predictable. As the population of Sweden, etc., has become less homogenous, the support for welfare programmes has fallen dramatically and the racial strife has increased measurably.

‘Back in the day’ immigrants had lots of kids because they were needed to farm and there was no birth control.

Today immigrants have lots of kids because the welfare state pays them to do so.

The ‘effect’ is the same, but the ’cause’ is different.

And its that ’cause’ that turns upside-down the cost/benefit to the country of the immigrants and their associated “fertility”.

And to think, Jeb was supposed to be the smart Bush. Idiot.

Jeb Bush is not nearly as racist, hateful or vile as those made by conservatives against immigrants, legal and illegal.

Jeb Bush is fine in my book. I’m proud that he is finally stepping up. Moderates took a hit after Romney’s loss. He and Chris Christie will save the GOP if it is to be saved.

sentinelrules on June 14, 2013 at 2:23 PM

I get this question and I don’t think it’s insensitive.

I think that those habits or trends among illegal-immigrants are supported in many ways by the larger legal-Hispanic community. That is to say that illegals could not flourish without the aid of legal-citizens, who are often of Spanish-speaking origin.

That cloistered, shared-space thing inspires independence. Sure there are Big Gov handouts. But same goes for my industry, farming and many other pursuits. The question is From whom do we each seek our independence?

Refocus immigrants on independence from Government. Unless you’re telling me that there is some biological precursor preventing this, that is the goal.

We’re taught in school that child rearing is bad and in culture that mothers who have children aren’t as good as women who don’t.

That’s not an argument that’ll win him any conservative votes in a 2016 primary, but less conservative Republicans and everyone to their left — which is most of the electorate — love entitlements and will listen very carefully to proposals on how to preserve the status quo.

No, it’s simply another counter principled argument which attempts to use a disingenuous appeal in order to garner political stature.

Bush never met a principle he didn’t stomp on. In fact, he is just another unprincipled purveyor of feel-good actions which are mostly based on counter-factual assumptions and in the end worsen our countries challenges. When his fallacious assertions and sophism are revealed he calls opponents names and makes pathos appeals to cover for his blatant stupidity. Sound familiar? It should. It is the mirror image of what we’ve been living with for the last five years.

I am a little tired of being called names by people like Jeb because I challenge their foolish and demonstrably false arguments. Bush’s only interest is in his political career and being fawned over by adoring “bipartisan” crowds- whatever that means.

These days have to be a test of our will. Either we are so getting under the skin of liberal republicans they are lashing out and making all this noise now or they are actually winning the war on conservatism and screaming about their victory.

That 2012 election was very close and even winnable without all the fraud and suppression. The Obama administration should be on the ropes with all these scandals. And what do we get treated to? The old guard of the GOP flop sweating in desperation or victory at the acrimony we are causing for asking for a return to our constitution.

Right before the election there was prolific poster expressing so much frustration that he declared he was voting straight dem to hasten the collapse. I’m beginning to see some wisdom in that endeavor since we aren’t getting any younger and it may be refreshing to see a rebuilding on the other side. And with half of our (meh, perhaps former) party throwing down with the dems on social issues it may be time to let it rip apart.

People like Jeb Bush are toxic for the party. They represent a Banksters’ Front that wants to import Cheap Labor for the Business Roundtable crowd that pushed Romney down our throats the last go-round.

BTW, this same Banksters’ cabal gave us Obama, so I hope people around these parts aren’t going to play the Blue vs. Red game that Palin warned us about in her Indianola Speech.

Obama and Jeb don’t give a damn about black unemployment, don’t care about latino unemployment, and don’t care about unemployment among poor whites. That’s collateral damage to them. They care about their portfolios.

People like Palin, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul get attacked because they want to drive the Bourbons out of Washington and restore the Rule of Law.

We’re in for a hell of a fight, folks.

Black Leaders Plan DC Jobs March to Protest Illegal Alien Amnesty

Civil Rights Commission: ‘Granting Illegal Immigrants Effective Amnesty Would ‘Harm Lower-Skilled African-Americans’

The problem IS that this current crop of illegals:

1. don’t love America.
2. don’t want to become American.
3. don’t share an American dream of upward mobility.

monalisa on June 14, 2013 at 3:10 PM

I know, right? I grew up in an area that had a large number of illegals working in the agriculture industry, back in the late ’60s, early ’70s. They worked their butts off, and just seemed to want to make a better life for their kids. It seems different now.

If you are a farmer, the chances are that you are getting subsidies from the taxpayers of this country, and really aren’t paying your way. Much like the illegal alien leaches, who deserve nothing but a one way, never return ticket, back to where they came from! It’s not racist bigotry, you fool. It’s about the sovereignty amd respect for our country and those who have shed precious blood to protect and defend our Constitution.Get real you hypocrit! And the same goes for that other leach, Jeb Bush!

M240H on June 14, 2013 at 3:52 PM

He’s right. It has quite a bit to do with not yet having bought into the culture of abortion with which we are afflicted here. In poorer countries (from which most immigrants come), children are viewed as a form of social security, not as a parasite to be expunged from our bodies.

Gee dude, in your copy and paste effort there you left off your little racist misogynist ethnic slut. You know, about Jeb liking the Latinas with the big “azzes”.

I bet Boss Malkin would love what her site has become since day one (when I was here).

I’m especially charmed by how “Fck off and die!” is perfectly acceptable (if Rubio or Latino directed especially) these days.

ToddPA on June 14, 2013 at 4:08 PM

wait a second, noted economic scholar and prominent Catholic Nancy Pelosi has stated that abortions are the greatest because children cost too much money and are a drain on the economy.*

* and by economy, I assume she meant techno music and ecstasy poppers.

joeindc44 on June 14, 2013 at 4:23 PM

More kids tends to increase GDP. What it does for sure is DECREASE GDP PER CAPITA. This is especially true when the kids come from unskilled poorly educated communities. I am primarily concerned with current US citizens especially my progeny rather than citizens of other nations. Unskilled poorly educated immigrants reduce the likelyhood that citizens will prosper.

mjbrooks3 on June 14, 2013 at 4:36 PM

And with half of our (meh, perhaps former) party throwing down with the dems on social issues it may be time to let it rip apart.

It’s already starting to tear. At this point it has become more than obvious as to which GOP reps. have abandoned conservatives. Too many of them have decided to kick the base to the curb and fracture the party. I believe they will get their wish. Voting third party/write-in is going to start to look very attractive to more and more GOP voters…whether amnesty passes or not.

Midas on June 14, 2013 at 3:41 PM

Wow. You’re a real idiot aren’t you? Are you blackaphobic?

What difference does their race make? Anti-Latino hate-speech and bigotry are American problems. Maybe you don’t think Blacks are Americans. Maybe you think there is some default parity between darker shades of skin. I don’t get it.

Unlike most conservatives Republicans, I’m not afraid to be myself around Blacks, Latinos, white kids under 5 or any other minority group.

A good example of this is that uproar over NBPP at polling places. Many White=Americans and conservatives said they felt threatened by their presence. I don’t get it.

I’m not threatened by a person’s race. So your question appeals to me as pointless. I can see why it would be relevant to those who are afraid of minorities, like you.

Capitalist Hog on June 14, 2013 at 4:46 PM

I am so confused. Haven’t they been telling us for YEARS that it’s a bad thing to have more than a couple of kids?

Also, if illegals coming from Mexico start their own businesses more, have more children (now apparently a good thing and something we should be ashamed about) and have an awesome economic engine…

why isn’t Mexico doing gangbusters better than us, and lands, WHY ever would those coming here WANT to come here in the first place?

I get that you need to bolster your bona fides. You’ve been trying for some time now.

I bet you’re sitting there hoping I call you a bigot. Thing is you’re not much of one. What bigotry you do express is fake and done so to be seen as hardcore. You make SE Cupp sound like William Buckley.

If you were honest with yourself, you’d feel like I did when I left.

And, it’s about to get worse thanks to the EU and the LibLabCon Party. The population of the UK is 61 million. Beginning next year, 23 million poor Bulgarians and Romanians will be eligible to immigrate to the UK and immediately become eligible for the same benefits that a WWII vet receives.

They’re more ‘fertile’ because we’re paying them to whelp.

Think about it for ten seconds, moron, who’ll have more children: the native-born citizens who get robbed by the feds and have less money for their families, or the unskilled peasants who get rewarded by the feds and dodge taxes anyway?

This like many so-called “social” issues goes back to who’s getting paid for what.

Sherman1864 on June 15, 2013 at 9:14 AM

Amusing analysis Allah.

For some reason “americanized” anericans aren’t having many children. Could be economical. Could be cultural. We, the elite of this country, have laid the groundwork for this set of circumstances for nearly 100 years now. But the lack of children now threatens our stock portfolios, our consumer oriented economy, and also, ultimately our ability to hold onto the reins of power.

Immigrants have children. Lots of them. Lets bring in as many as we can to do the jobs americans won’t do.

And they call Snowden a traitor?
