This is no "act of love" as Jeb Bush said…

“Yeah, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony,” Bush states. “It’s an act of love.” In Trump’s video, Bush’s statement is featured with three mug shots of illegal immigrants that all committed violent crimes during their stay in the United States.

“Love? Forget love, it’s time to get tough!” pops onto the screen following Bush’s statement.

Trump previously accused his competitor of being easily influenced regarding illegal immigration because Bush’s wife is from Mexico.

“I mean, look, I would say that he would,” Trump told CNN. “If my wife were from Mexico, I think I would have a soft spot for people from Mexico.”
