As Jeb Bush expanded on his support for a path to citizenship for some immigrants, immigration protesters cut him off with chants of "No hope without our vote!"
Bush tried to make himself heard over the protesters, so that he could talk about his support for the children of undocumented immigrants, known as "DREAMers." He told the audience at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, "I believe that Dream Act kids should have a path to citizenship...I've been consistently for it and I'll continue to be consistently for it irrespective of what the political ramifications of that are."
But Bush, like most of the Republican presidential field, does favor securing the border before taking action on the millions of undocumented immigrants currently in the U.S.
The Associated Press reported that the Texas Organizing Project planned the protests that disrupted Bush's speech.
The group's communications director, Mary Moreno, told the AP that protesters wanted to call attention to "the hostile atmosphere being created by the GOP field of presidential candidates," and she said the Republican candidates wanted to "militarize the border" when there are already thousands of border patrol agents on the southern border.
If I had the capacity to feel sorry for Jeb Bush, which I don;t, I think I would be feeling sorry for Jeb Bush right about now.
The guy had this whole thing mapped out.
He had the name. He had the money, He had the political connections.
What he didn't have is a personality, or the ability to run a coherent campaign where his foot does not end up him his mouth every two or three campaign stops.
At this point I don't think that it's inconceivable that Bush will drop out.
It won't happen today, but it certainly could happen, and it could happen earlier than anybody would predict.
