Jeb Bush: Senate plan 'respects rule of law' and 'immigrant heritage'



Jeb Bush reacts to the Senate immigration proposal:

"Thanks to the dedicated work of senators from both sides of the aisle, the proposed legislation creates a new immigration system that first and foremost secures our border; creates a new invigorated system of legal immigration which will spur economic growth; and creates a tough but practical means to process those currently here illegally. The proposed legislation respects the rule of law and our country's immigrant heritage. I am encouraged that America could have a new, working immigration policy this year.”
