More About the Author

Jeb Bush served as governor of Florida from 1999-2007.

During his administration, Governor Bush pushed for dramatic reforms in Florida's public education system and promoted school choice to give parents with children in failing schools access to better schools. Florida became the first state in the nation to adopt a statewide voucher program and Governor Bush nearly tripled the number of charter schools, making his state a pioneer in school choice. Thanks to Governor Bush's education reforms, high school graduation rates in Florida have increased by nearly 50 percent.

Governor Bush also cut taxes, enacted meaningful legal reform and streamlined regulations to jump-start Florida's economy. During the final seven years of Governor Bush's tenure, Florida led the nation in job creation. The state also led the nation in small business creation as 1.3 million new jobs were created.

In 2004-2005, Jeb Bush's leadership skills were tested as the state was pounded by an unprecedented eight hurricanes, inflicting an estimated $70 billion of damage. Governor Bush was widely praised for providing a strong response to these natural disasters and bringing his state together during a true crisis.

Jeb Bush has also compiled a distinguished career in business, building one of Florida's largest commercial real estate companies and investing in new industries and start-up companies.

He and his wife, Columba, reside in Coral Gables, Florida and are the parents of three children, George, Noelle and Jeb, Jr.

The following are excerpts from my review of this book to be published in The Social Contract in the Fall 2015 issue, under the title, “Immigration Wars: Jeb Bush, Clint Bolick and the Elitist Libertarian Opposition to Sane Immigration Policy.” [The proofs of the full review are, however, already available at ]

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.

An ol' school, 80's-reared conservative here folks. Wake up America. I used to be a 'republican' until just a short while ago when I realized that the dems and repubs ARE THE EXACT SAME PEOPLE who go to the same country clubs, who's kids go to the same private schools, who's daddies give their kids all the 8 figure jobs at the big banks, the big tech companies, wall street, et al. I had been suspecting this for some time, but I came to this realization when I saw how mainstream senate and house republicans caved on amnesty/immigration recently. There is no question this will hurt the co-existence and harmony of the native US citizen. The basic fact on the immigration matter is that rich republicans and democrats LOVE the cheap influx of labor and eventually democrat (free stuff) votes. The democrats get their massive voter pool increased when amnesty takes it's true effect when all the kids of illegals vote in 20 years. The republicans get cheap labor for their farms, restaurants, buildings etc. All Jeb does and those like him are just another strain of neocon globalist 'new world order' manchurian candidate types just like pappy bush and his idiot brother who started an unnecessary war that cost trillions in US lives and treasure. I don't like Trump's positions on a lot of things, but he's spot on the immigration issue, and Jeb Bush is a globalist traitor.

The tired cliche is that the biggest problem with Jeb is his last name. Bah! Last time I looked there were still plenty of people getting gas from Exxon & BP stations, Christians buy plenty of Proctor & Gamble products though they swear the profits go to the Church of Satan, people bank at Bank of America though that bank scammed us all hard and people buy plenty of products that rely on slave labor overseas.

What Jeb's problem is - is not a bad last name. What his problem is - is that Jeb has not rehabilitated that last name effectively. People are fools for comeback stories. When Nixon died he was revered by the GOP. But a book like this does not help Jeb (and stupid lines like 'I'm Veto Corleone' when we all know that Neil is the idiot Vito of the Bush family.)

All that being said I've never felt sorrier for a guy that has written a book from the Conservative Side of Politics. Jeb ain't gonna be winning any votes with this thing. It's boring. It's bland. It could be completely on point but so what? But if nothing else this book really represents Jeb's inability to know how to run the race for the Presidency in the public sphere.
