Jeb Bush working on book about immigration
WASHINGTON — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is writing a book with a title that cuts directly to the emotion and complexity of the subject: Immigration Wars.
"Immigration is an important part of our country's success and if policies are reformed, can be part of restoring and sustaining our greatness as a nation," Bush said in an announcement by the publisher Wednesday.
Bush, who met his wife in Mexico and speaks Spanish, has urged the GOP to moderate its views and rhetoric on the divisive issue, though a harder line still pervades the Republican platform.
He is writing the book — formally called Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution — with Clint Bolick, vice president for litigation as the Goldwater Institute and research fellow with the Hoover Institution. (story here)
