The following are excerpts from my review of this book to be published in The Social Contract later this (2015) spring, under the title, “Immigration Wars: Jeb Bush, Clint Bolick and the Elitist Libertarian Opposition to Sane Immigration Policy.”

Two years ago Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick published a book that assumes special relevance now that Bush is a Republican candidate for president in the 2016 election. The book: Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution (Threshold Editions, New York, 2013). Bush earlier was co-chairman of a Council of Foreign Relations 19-member task force that published in 2009 a white paper titled U.S. Immigration Policy that anticipated most of the key ideas in this book.

Bush is to be commended for having had the courage to detail his position on the many different aspects of the immigration issue. No issue is so critical to the economic, social and environmental future of the U.S. Yet rarely do we get from any political candidates, let alone those for the presidency, much more than vague platitudes. The mainline media on both the left and the right rarely challenge their evasiveness. And the media and the politicians often treat as taboo the most critical topics. During the 2012 presidential campaign, for example, how many debate moderators, talk show hosts or television pundits did we hear asking candidates whether they thought total annual legal immigration should be increased or decreased and, if one or the other, by how much?

The following essay analyzes Immigration Wars for both its style and substance.

Jeb Bush's recent book Immigration Wars, is a book for the sake of a book. Jeb proffers neither special insight into the immigration reform debate nor an original thought on immigration that I have not already read in USA Today. If you follow the immigration debate in the news, and you watch your occasional Sunday morning political talk show, then you can skip the first 60 pages of this book without missing much. Of particular annoyance to me was the contradiction between Jeb's constant attacks on President Obama's policies and his repeated use of the phrase "bipartisan support" for immigration reform.

The first part of the book details Jeb's 6 Point Plan on immigration reform. In this section, Jeb talks about the need for comprehensive immigration form, and an increased role of the states in immigration, among other things. Although I appreciate Jeb putting his thoughts down on paper, I was not impressed by the creativity of his idea. Jeb's first point here simply argues for "comprehensive immigration reform" (comprehensive as compared to what? Piece-meal immigration reform?) The only statement here worth noting is Jeb's stance that illegal aliens who come to the U.S. as adults should not be allowed to become citizens unless they leave the country and apply for citizenship through the traditional channels. I thought this a fairly bold thing to say given the likelihood that the Prospective Immigrant Visa will soon become law.

Once you've finished the first 60 pages (if you read that far) you can skip the rest and not worry about missing much. The total length of the book is only 225 pages, double-spaced with wide margins. It is not necessarily a book on immigration as it is an essay on immigration.

I just finished reading Immigration Wars by Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick. I found their views to be similar to my own, so I'd like to pass on this summary book report. Chapter one lays out their proposal and the remaining chapters make the case for why this is good for America. Only in the "Postscript" do they make partisan arguments, why this is good for Republicans.

Their proposal has six steps.

1 - "Fundamental Reform," is a generalization arguing that the current system is broken and can't be fixed piecemeal, both from the standpoint of implementation and the issue of getting it through Congress.

2 - "A Demand-Driven Immigration System," [sometimes called market-driven] is needed. They bring up the problem of "extended family reunification," which leads to "chain migration." Current law allows legal immigration of family members of permanent legal residents, not just citizens, where family members include spouses, parents, siblings, and adult children. In the simplest example the permanent legal residents bring their spouses, who bring their siblings, who bring their spouses, etc. The result is that these immigrants crowd out those that come here to work, and they are more likely to receive benefits than those that come legally to work. [The first I learned about chain immigration was in a recent article by Jeb in the Wall Street Journal. He pointed out that while some people (like me) would like to see illegals go back to their home country and stand in line, the line is a mile long and it isn't moving.] Bush and Bolick would limit family reunification to spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens (more restrictive than permanent legal residents) thus allowing reunification of immediate families while making room for more workers.
