George P. Bush Says That Texas Landholders Have Asked Him If They Can Shoot “Illegal Immigrants”

  • While Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush (Jeb’s son) discussed the border wall on Fox & Friends, he also mentioned that private landowners have asked if they can shoot at “illegal immigrants” under trespassing laws.
  • “I just wrapped up a week-long tour of the border from El Paso to McAllen, and some landowners are asking can I shoot?” the nephew of 43rd President George W. Bush asked.
  • “Can I shoot to basically withstand the amount of surge that we are seeing?” Bush noted. “Of course, we want a more peaceful approach to this but building walls work.”

Bush and candidate for Texas Attorney General mentioned shooting firearms at illegal immigrants as a means to show how dire the situation is. “I just wrapped up a week-long tour of the border from El Paso to McAllen and some landowners are asking can I shoot? Can I shoot to basically withstand the amount of surge that we are seeing?” he noted. “Of course, we want a more peaceful approach to this but building walls work.”

“Do you mean can I shoot?” Steve Doocy asked. “Can I use — have a firearm to protect my family or what do you mean by that?”

“That is correct,” Bush replied before making a not-so-subtle reference to a famous phrase put into the political discourse by his grandfather, former President George H. W. Bush…”
