Clint Bolick and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are working on a book to be called “Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution.”
By E. J. Montini
The Arizona Republic
As director of the Goldwater Institute’s constitutional-litigation center, Bolick has had confrontations with teachers unions, police and firefighters, the federal government, local cities, the Phoenix Coyotes and more, often taking a position that some of us (OK, me) believe to be dead wrong.
He doesn’t mind a good argument, even one that gets heated. Still, nothing prepared him for the reaction he got to an essay written in 2005 for The Arizona Republic.
“I wrote about the necessity of the Republican Party to reach out to Hispanic voters,” Bolick told me. “It seemed to be a pretty non-controversial position to take.”
Then again, this is Arizona.
