Former President George W. Bush called immigration “a blessing and a strength” at a naturalization ceremony in Dallas on Monday, a sharp break from a certain other Republican President’s rhetoric about the issue.
“America’s elected representatives have a duty to regulate who comes in and when,” he said. “In meeting this responsibility, it helps to remember that America’s immigrant history made us who we are.”
“Amid all the complications of policy, may we never forget that immigration is a blessing and a strength,” he added.
