Governor Jeb Bush - Restoring America’s Promise: The Leadership Required and the Policy Changes that are Needed
Governor of Florida (1999-2007)

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Governor Jeb Bush

The governor will be introduced by someone who knows him well, his son, Fort Worth resident George P. Bush, currently seeking the Republican nomination for Texas Land Commissioner.

The immigration debate has challenged our nation since its founding. But today, it divides Americans more stridently than ever, due to a chronic failure of national leadership by both parties. The issue and principal arguments have remained consistent for over two centuries, without a common ground ever being reached.

In Immigration Wars, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and leading constitutional litigator Clint Bolick present a comprehensive solution to the national debate surrounding immigration. Rooted in the fundamental thought that immigration is vital to America's future – fueling its growth, vibrancy, and creativity – Bush and Bolick have constructed an enduring solution that remains true to the letter of America’s laws.

For Jeb Bush, immigration is personal -- he met his wife in Mexico and thanks to her, became bicultural and bilingual. He has lived in Miami for many years—a city made vibrant, dynamic, and exciting, due to its immigrants. And then there is his granddaughter, whose mom is a Canadian citizen whose parents are of Iraqi nationality. She is an American with a diverse heritage who will be taught to love her country and all her rich heritage.

With Immigration Wars as a beacon of hope, Americans can finally solidify a national identity that is based on a set of ideals enriched and reinvigorated by immigrants, most of whom fervently embrace our core values – family, faith, hard work, education, and patriotism.
