'Immigrants are more fertile:' Jeb Bush tells religious conservatives that immigrants will help the American economy by pumping out more babies to pay for government debt
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush claimed in remarks to religious conservatives on Friday that immigrants are 'more fertile' than American-born women, which he argued would help the economy by creating more taxpayers to pay off government debt.
'Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population,' he added. 'Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.'
Bush, who is thought to be weighing a presidential bid, explained that a growing population of young workers could help the government fund its safety net for the retiring baby boomer generation.
