Jeb to offended Hispanics: I was talking about ASIAN anchor babies

Trying to quell controversy within the Hispanic community over his use of the term “anchor babies,” Jeb Bush wound up insulting another group.

Speaking to reporters Monday, the 2016 Republican presidential hopeful said he was taken out of context and that his comments were “frankly, more related to Asian people.”

“What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed where there’s organized efforts and, frankly, it’s more related to Asian people coming into our country, having children in that organized efforts taking advantage of a noble concept which is birthright citizenship,” Bush said. “I support the 14th amendment.”

Twitter users were quick to ridicule the former Florida governor for stepping in it again.

    Jeb you have the right to remain silent. Maybe you should use it.

    He’s actually correct. There is an San Diego news article that describes and entire industry of people collectively getting pregnant women here from china and other parts of Asia just to have access to our systems. In particular the schools of California are a top sales message of the businesses involved.

    A good portion of the Hispanic anchors from Mexico and Central America wind up not completing school, or in some type of criminal activity. The Asians tend to do well in school. Yeah, there are Asians involved in smuggling rings and dangerous gangs too, but more often they are programmed to succeed by strong family influence.

    Waffle and pander. Way to go, Jeb! That’s why I wouldn’t vote for you in a million years.

  7. Misanthrope says:

    And the halfwits running the GOP wonder why Trump is doing so well.

  8. Josef Roesler says:

    You know what Jeb? WE were talking about ALL anchor babies, you pathetic piece of crap. Nobody is surprised you keep changing your story depending on which way the wind blows…that’s what RINOs do.
