Former President George W. Bush lamented the polarization of immigration reform in a Washington Post op-ed published yesterday.
The op-ed is in line with Bush's longstanding calls for immigration reform but nonetheless puts him at odds with many of the GOP's likely 2024 presidential contenders.
President Bush's op-ed was published ahead of Bush’s interview with CBS’ Norah O’Donnell is set to air tomorrow. In the interview, Bush reportedly said that he is “ready to re-enter the debate on immigration.” Bush called for a path to citizenship for “Dreamers,” increased border security, working with other countries to stem the root causes of migration as well a "modernized" asylum system and higher levels of legal immigration, "focused on employment and skills."
