Jeb Bush Sinks to New Low Trying to Unbungle His Anchor Baby Gaffe
Washington, DC—Donald Trump may have set a new low in American political debates with his attacks on immigrants, but it is clear now that other contenders for the 2016 Republican presidential primary are striving to follow him down in courting an anti-immigrant base even though Latino, Asian, and immigrant voters are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. electorate.
Below are remarks by Dawn Le from the Alliance for Citizenship:
“Jeb Bush should know Asian Pacific Americans don’t only speak English, we can speak several languages, including Spanish. He can’t pander to Latinos in one breath and then insult Asians and Asian Pacific Americans in the next.
“Jeb’s remarks suggest how he might lead as President—by following Donald Trump down to the bottom of the barrel.”
Immigrant activists and allies will encounter presidential candidates on the campaign trail today in Utah, Colorado, and Alabama, raising questions of how their solution is different than Donald Trump’s and just how far they will go to disenfranchise the fastest growing segment of the U.S. electorate.
