Jeb Bush Urges House to Pass Senate-Like Immigration Bill

With Republicans like this who needs Democrats?


Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who is likely positioning himself to run for president in 2016, has swooped in to again endorse the “Gang of Eight” Senate immigration bill and advocate that House Republicans pass it–or a similar version of it. Bush had already endorsed the bill before, but is now calling on the House to pass it with a majority of Republicans.

“Now that the Senate has passed comprehensive immigration reform, the action shifts to the House of Representatives,” Bush and Goldwater Institute vice president for litigation Clint Bolick wrote in a joint op-ed for the Wall Street Journal on Monday.
