Jeb Bush, a Pro-mmigration Republican, Declares That "Immigrants are More Fertile"

The Republican Party

At the Faith and Freedom conference in Washington, D.C.--a gathering of social conservatives--potential 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush praised immigrants as a positive force in American life.

During his address, Bush (a younger brother of former President George W. Bush) noted that "immigrants are more fertile."  Bush's comments, probably a clumsy choice of words, incited a controversy on Friday nonetheless.
