George W. Bush Skeptical of Senate’s Immigration Bill
Since we need a border bill first.
Check it out:
Former President George W. Bush questioned the political motives of lawmakers behind the immigration bill making its way through the U.S. Senate during an interview with the Huffington Post’s Jon Ward this week.
Bush suggested that some in Congress pushing the legislation may be more concerned with winning votes than truly resolving the nation’s immigration woes.
Ward described the former President’s mindset as a “desire not to criticize the GOP” but offering a “warning about the party’s mad dash for immigration reform.”
“I think the atmosphere, unlike when I tried it, is better, maybe for the wrong reason,” Bush told Ward. “The right reason is it’s important to reform a broken system. I’m not sure a right reason is that in so doing we win votes.
“I mean when you do the right thing, I think you win votes, as opposed to doing something that’s the right thing to win votes. Maybe there’s no difference there. It seems like there is to me though.”
