On Thursday, Nicolle Wallace, who has worked for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and President George W. Bush, said she hoped that Jeb Bush “doubles down” on his “act of love” comments regarding illegal immigration.
Appearing on Rachel Maddow’s show on MSNBC after President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty announcement, the Republican sellout said that she hoped more Republicans understand that the “act of illegal immigration, while illegal, is motivated by love.” She said “until we get our heads around why people get here” Republicans will supposedly be doomed.
Wallace, who was also a McCain campaign hack who became a co-host on The View after backstabbing conservatives to the mainstream press after she shivved former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, said it is “nonsense” and “illogical” for Americans to want border security first before broader immigration reform.
She then conceded that America may have more than 11-12 million illegal immigrants, a number that is frequently cited, saying she believed that there may be at least 17 million illegal immigrants in the country. She said that “illegal immigration is everywhere” and it impacts people from coast to coast. Her solution and advice to Republicans was to pass bipartisan comprehensive amnesty legislation.
Jeb Bush, who is considering running for president in 2016, has come under fire for his embrace of comprehensive amnesty legislation and Common Core.
