Protestors interrupt Bush’s speech at Miami Dade College

Published: Updated:

MIAMI, Fla.- Right in the middle of Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign speech, a large group who call themselves “dreamers,” changed into lime green shirts, started chanting and marched outside.

Protestors tell WINK News they don’t believe Bush is the right candidate for immigration reform.

“I don’t believe that Jeb Bush is our option,” said protestor Maria Bilbao. “Sometimes he says something and sometimes he says another.”

Once the dreamers interrupted Bush, he handled it smoothly and went off script to address the issue.

“Just so that our friends know, the next president of the United States will pass meaningful immigration reform so that that will be solved, not by executive order,” said Bush.

Another major topic on the minds of these voters was education. Many praised Bush on his education reform while governor of Florida. Including Ruth Anne Lawson. Bush visited her in middle school and told her to stay in the classroom and get an education.

“He sat me down in a room and got in my face and was like, ‘you got to go to school,'” said Lawson.

“We do care, and you don’t show that by counting out anyone’s child.  You give them all a chance,” said Bush to the crowd.
