Liberal Pinko Jeb Bush Disagrees with Conservative Author Jeb Bush on Immigration

Posted by Paul Constant on Tue, Mar 5, 2013 at 1:44 PM

It looks like Jeb Bush's opinions on immigration are starting a battle between Jeb Bush and some guy named Jeb Bush. ThinkProgress says:

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) told MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday that he would support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants “if you can craft that in law where you can have a path to citizenship where there isn’t an incentive for people to come illegally” — a position that puts him at odds with his new book, out today from Simon & Schuster.

In Immigration Wars, co-authored with immigration lawyer Clint Bolick, Bush agues that denying a path to citizenship for the 11 million unauthorized immigrations is “absolutely vital to the integrity of our immigration system that actions have consequences.” Those who enter the country illegally, Bush contends, should “start the process to earn permanent legal residency” after pleading guilty to breaking the law and paying “applicable fines or perform community service.” But they should not have access to “the cherished fruits of citizenship”

The poor bastard Romneyed too early! Everybody knows you don't Romney until after you've won a bunch of states in the Republican primary. Then, once you're the candidate, you switch your position to something that sounds a little more reasonable. Let's see how Jeb handles this one. Maybe he'll go Full Romney and talk up his severely conservative views in the next couple of weeks.
