What does Jeb Bush think of immigration?

According to anti-immigrant sayings Donald Trump under pressure

First of all, the curious hairstyle of the extroverted billionaire catches the eye: a kind of mullet combed forward. Then Donald Trump stands out for his self-confidence.

"I'm really rich, I can assure you that."

He did not need any campaign donors, he did not depend on others, because he was really very rich, Trump emphasized again and again when he announced his presidential candidacy. He says his fortune is just under nine billion dollars. In a country that does not regard self-made wealth as suspicious but as merit, you can score points with the electorate, especially with Republican voters. And Trump is not prone to stupid.

As president, he will be the best job creator God has ever created. His internal party opponents now doubt that the candidate Donald Trump was sent into the race by God, but Trump did not stop there. He chose an even more polarizing topic than himself: namely, the illegal immigrants living in the United States. The people who come from Mexico are not the best, said Donald Trump.

Trump called Mexican immigrants criminals

The immigrants bring drugs, are criminals and rapists. Some of you, according to the fig leaf added by Trump, are arguably decent people too. But that set the tone. Donald Trump wants to fish in the anti-immigration and nativist republican party camp. At first glance, the survey figures seem to prove him right. Within two weeks, Trump was second among the Republican candidates, behind Jeb Bush.

Trump then attacked Bush in a - later deleted - Twitter message. Bush, according to Trump, must be in favor of illegal immigration, because he is married to a Mexican woman. Jeb Bush is one of the few Republican candidates to campaign for legal residency status for undocumented immigrants.

Trump's statements were part of a strange conversation in which he was hardly involved, Bush said at an election rally yesterday. It's about more than friction between two political competitors. At its core, it is about the Republicans' ability to hold a majority demographic. Their relationship with Latino voters has been severely disrupted because the Republican Party has been preventing immigration reform for a decade. 73 percent of Latinos voted for the Democrats in the last presidential election in 2012. They are the fastest growing electorate in the United States.

Jeb's brother, George Bush, tried unsuccessfully in 2007 to push immigration reform through Congress. The moderate candidates in the Republican race now fear that Trump's xenophobic remarks will damage the reputation of the Republicans in the Latino community - and with it the election chances of serious Republican candidates.
