The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation was pleased to host Former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush at the Reagan Library for a lecture and book signing on his new book, Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution (publish date: March 5, 2013). In addition to his book, Governor Bush discussed the need in restoring America’s Promise: the leadership required and the policy changes that are needed.
Immigration Wars, written by Jeb Bush and leading constitutional litigator Clint Bolick, offers a compassionate view of immigration and realistic measures for reforming policy—without the divisive rhetoric—and a roadmap for our country’s future.
Jeb Bush served as the 43rd governor of the state of Florida, serving from 1999 through 2007. 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, Governor Bush championed major reform of government programs. He also remained true to his conservative principles– cutting $20 billion in taxes, vetoing more than $2.3 billion in earmarks and reducing the state government workforce by more than 13,000. His limited government approach help unleash one of the most robust economies in the nation, creating 1.4 million net new jobs and improving the state’s credit ratings on Wall Street.
Currently, Governor Bush is the President of the consulting firm Jeb Bush and Associates and a Senior Advisor to Barclays Capital. He is on the boards of many companies, including the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library, the George W. Bush Institute Board and the Bloomberg Family Foundation Board. He and his wife Columba live in Miami and have three grown children. Jeb Bush is the son of President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush.
