President Obama's recent executive action on illegal immigration, deferring deportations and giving millions of individuals access to work permits, Social Security, Medicaid and other benefits, was front and center during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday where attorney general nominee and U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch testified
"Senator, I think the right and obligation to work is one that is shared by everyone in this country regardless of how they came here and certainly if someone is here, regardless of status, I would prefer that they be participating in the work place than not be participating," Lynch said. Attorney General Eric Holder, who Lynch will replace if confirmed, has openly stated he believes amnesty for those who entered the country illegally is a civil right.
The centerpiece of Bush's immigration plan is a guest-worker program that would allow participants in the program to eventually become U.S. citizens. Bolick claims this program will "ease pressure on illegal immigration."
And if you believe the federal government is good at matching employers with employees, making sure those employees stay with those employers, and accurately estimating how many guest workers every industry in American will need, then sure, it sounds like a good program.
But, if you are a bit more skeptical of the federal government's ability to manage labor markets, then the program is destined to be a complete disaster. [Source]

I missed where Jeb Bush was ever President and where I would have had the opportunity to have supported him?
I do believe I have stated several times that I DO NOT want him as the nominee in 2016.
Didn't the original "settlers" in the Americas work?
Weren't they illegal immigrants?
Weren't they the original Republicans trying to get away from rule of The Crown?
Talk about partisan double standards.

Though it was about the current DOJ's party wanting more voters.

Precisely, we refuse to take care of our own and give them opportunities but we're expected to feel sorry for the political pawns? No freaking way.
