Jeb Bush Bungles Defense On 'Anchor Babies'
While trying to defend his use of the term "anchor babies," presidential hopeful Jeb Bush dug himself a little deeper by applying the term to Asians.By Jake Godin | August 25, 2015
"What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed where there is organized efforts — and frankly it's more related to Asian people — coming into our country, having children in that organized effort, taking advantage of a noble concept, which is birthright citizenship," Jeb Bush said during a press conference in McAllen, Texas.
That was Bush defending his use of the phrase "anchor babies," a term that's become a bit controversial between presidential hopefuls and Hispanic immigrants.
Of course, just switching the blame to a different group of immigrants probably won't fix the problem in critics' eyes.
