Jeb Bush, former Republican governor of Florida, will discuss his new book "Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution." A book signing will follow the discussion.
Tickets are required. The author will only sign copies of the book purchased through the National Press Club.
There’s no public policy issue that divides Americans more stridently than immigration. The principal arguments have remained consistent for more than two centuries, without a common ground ever being reached. Now, Jeb Bush and leading constitutional litigator Clint Bolick deliver a comprehensive solution based on two core principles: immigration is vital to America’s future, fueling its growth, vibrancy, and creativity; but any enduring solution must follow America’s laws.
We are a nation of immigrants. More than any other country, our national identity is based on a set of ideals that are enriched and reinvigorated by immigrants, most of whom attach themselves more fervently to core American values. But over the past several decades, a huge percentage of immigrants have entered and remained in the country illegally. In order to effectively deal with this problem, we must first overhaul our badly broken immigration process.
"Immigration Wars" offers realistic measures for reforming policy—without the divisive rhetoric—and a roadmap for our country’s future.

MEET JEB BUSH:
Jeb Bush was the 43rd governor of the state of Florida, serving from 1999 through 2006. He was the third Republican elected to the state’s highest office and the only Republican in the state’s history to be reelected.
During his two terms, Bush championed major reform of government programs in education and Medicaid. The state also launched and accelerated restoration of America’s Everglades, the largest project of its kind in the world, to save the habitat of 60 threatened and endangered species and provide a long-term supply of drinking water for 8 million people in South Florida.
Bush served as Florida’s secretary of commerce under Bob Martinez, Florida's 40th governor. He also co-authored "Profiles in Character," a book profiling 14 of Florida’s civic heroes — people making a difference without claiming a single news headline.
Bush earned a bachelor’s degree in Latin American studies from the University of Texas at Austin. He moved to Florida in 1981, where he started a real estate development company with partner Armando Codina.
Currently, Bush is the president of the consulting firm Jeb Bush and Associates and is on the boards of CNL Bancshares and Tenet Healthcare Corporation. In civic and charitable affairs, Bush serves on the boards of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, the Foundation of Florida’s Future, CASEnergy, Volunteer USA and Our Pledge. He and his wife, Columba, live in Miami and have three grown children. Bush is the son of President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush.
