The former Florida governor says Romney moved so far to the right, it was “all but impossible” for him to appeal to Hispanic voters.
Bush writes in his new book, “Immigration Wars,” that many Republicans have been “remarkably tone-deaf” when it comes to attracting Latino voters. He says if the party doesn’t change, the influence of Hispanic voters “will doom” the party’s future.
In the book, Bush says he supports creating a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants who live in the U.S. but says tougher border security should not be a prerequisite. He says a path to legal status should not include citizenship for those who entered illegally as adults.
