Bush on Immigration

Rate this Entry
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush recently criticized the GOP for having taken such a harsh stance on immigration. Mr. Bush explained in an interview with NBC, "Is it a useful tool politically for some Republicans to stay focused on the political issue, the wedge issue? It might be, I don't know, but I don't think that's right for our country."  Furthermore, he stated, "[w]e've got to have a better tone going forward over the long haul for sure...You can't ask people to join your cause and then send a signal that you're really not wanted. It just doesn't work." Fearing that, in the long run, the conservative view Republicans have on immigration will be detrimental to the party in regard to Hispanic votes. While Mr. Bush emphasizes the importance of securing borders and blocking undocumented immigration, he is nonetheless a supporter of the DREAM Act. Mr. Bush remains an influential individual for the Republican Party, but do you think the party will heed his advice and soften its views on immigration, and if so, how will it affect our immigration system?

    I am hopeful, especially considering that I understand that Rep. Paul Ryan has voted twice for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, during the G.W. Bush administration.
