    "I'm going to say this and it will be on tape and so be it," Bush said in an interview with Fox News host Shannon Bream in an event at the Texas presidential library of his father, George H.W. Bush.

    "The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn't come legally ... and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work, to be able to provide for their family, yes, they broke the law, but it's not a felony.

    "It's an act of love, it's an act of commitment to your family.

    Bush, 61, added: "I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime. There should be a price paid, but it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families."

    So if any Tom, Dick or Harry could just walk into America to feed a family they made a choice to create in their own country. Would this not lead to American parents not being able to feed their family?

    We can't fault desperate people from wanting to come to the US (or to Europe) - it's not criminal behaviour, but there are about 1 Billion people who fit into that category - the US and European economies simply can't accomodate them, and things would be all too crowded if they got there. The (so-called) western world needs to get the corrupt governments of the places they come from to improve conditions, so people don't think they have to leave.

    It's been a very topical thing in Australia, and if you come illegally, then you get nothing.

    Good. They cost billions of dollars and over 85% of all those who arrive do not work at all.

    They're economic refugees who want an easy life and they get given it mostly. Thankfully, our new government and our Immigration Minister, Scott Morrison, is dealing with the parasites that they have become. Of course, not all are like that.

    This is a little different in the US of course, as there are almost no conduit countries, but still. It's illegal and costs the country a lot of money.
