Editorial Reviews

Review

"About as sensible a look at immigration policy as one will find these days." (Vincent J. Cannato, The Wall Street Journal)

"Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick’s Immigration Wars is a must-read for every citizen, wannabe citizen, legal working resident and those illegally working in the shadows of our economy." (The Washington Times)

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 http://www.thesocialcontract.com/pdf/twentysix-one/tsc_26_1_hurlbert.pdf ]

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.

He is not merely a well informed visionary but one who has been able to translate his ideals into reality, for example as seen in his track record in educational reform. Very impressive. A thorough think tank. He writes about immigration reform with an enlightened perspective. The synergy behind his reform proposals is very civilized and humane. There is a lot that I like about this book.

Especially these three profound statements that seem to suggest his vision and modus operandi for renewal of America's greatness as a nation, stood out in my mind.
" But we cannot allow our dysfunctional political system and the political correctness of our times to stymie the great American tradition by which values rather than race or ethnicity define what it is to be an American" (Kindle book Location 96)
" We cannot sacrifice needed and overdue reform on the altar of partisanship especially when the solutions transcend the partisan divide." (Kindle book location 756)
and what seems to be the central thesis of his book, his view that
" Immigration policy and education policy are joined at the hip. Fundamental reform is required for each. And progress in one reinforces progress in the other" ( Kindle book Location1930)

I think that anyone who is really interested in shaping the next phase of American greatness should not only read this book but seriously consider its proposals.
