Jeb Bush: Immigrants 'More Fertile'

On Friday, former Florida governor Jeb Bush said America needs more immigrants because they are "more fertile" than native-born Americans. 

"Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans," Bush said in remarks to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. "Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity."

Bush, who this week signed a Crossroads GPS ad in support of the Senate's immigration bill, also said America's current "fertility rates" will not produce enough younger workers to enable aging Americans to retire "with dignity."
