Xenophobia and Political Correctness Make Strange Bedfellows

It’s almost sad to watch Jeb Bush try to hold on to his brand as the Republican who really likes Hispanics while also showing he can be just as big a xenophobe as the next presidential candidate – almost sad but more often funny. He’s spent the last few days trying to come up with a palatable way to say “anchor baby.” So yesterday down at the US-Mexico border he explained that “anchor babies” are really more a problem with “Asian people”, not Mexicans.
