This is a ticketed event. Click here to jump to the ticket form.
Jeb Bush, former Republican governor of Florida, and Clint Bolick, leading constitutional litigator, will discuss their 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, Bush and 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.
Proceeds benefit the National Press Club Journalism Institute. No outside books will be permitted.
