Jeb Bush: First Step of Immigration Reform Is Proving Border Is Secure

‘This president committed to comprehensive reform and has done nothing — and he hasn’t enforced the border to the satisfaction of anybody’

WALLACE: "In your 2013 book on immigration, you say that — that pushing for a “enforce the border first” policy is, in your words, “self-defeating,” that you’re going to need a path to legalization as part of a compromise if you’re going to get anything through Congress. Is that still your position?"
BUSH: "I think you can do both, but the first step is to prove that the border is secure. I mean, you could have a conversation about comprehensive reform while you’re doing your job. This president committed to comprehensive reform and has done nothing. And he hasn’t enforced the border to the satisfaction of anybody that’s looked at this issue."
