Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is teaming up with conservative Phoenix attorney Clint Bolick of the Goldwater Institute to write a book detailing their take on how to solve illegal immigration and fix
the nation’s broken immigration system.
Bolick, known nationally for his work promoting school-choice policies, said he shares Bush’s views on immigration and believes the harsh enforcement stance taken by some Republicans, including many GOP leaders in Arizona, is driving away Latinos, whom the party should be trying to attract.
“Jeb Bush has obviously been a national proponent of immigration reform, and over the years it became clear that his views and mine were very similar,” Bolick said in an interview with The Arizona Republic.
Bush, considered by many to be a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016, is among a growing number of influential Republicans who want to see the party drop the harsh rhetoric on illegal immigration and adopt what they consider to be a more practical, market-driven approach that helps businesses and doesn’t break up families.
