Great job, George.
A new book by former President George W. Bush will highlight an issue which now sets him apart from many of his fellow Republicans — immigration.
Crown announced Thursday that Bush’s “Out Of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants” will be published March 2. The book includes 43 portraits by the 43rd president, four-color paintings of immigrants he has come to know over the years, along with biographical essays he wrote about each of them.
Bush, who served as president from 2001-2009, has often praised the contributions of immigrants, a notable contrast to President Donald Trump’s rhetoric and policies. As president, Bush supported a bipartisan immigration reform bill that narrowly failed to pass in 2007, with opposition coming from both liberals and conservatives.
“While I recognize that immigration can be an emotional issue, I reject the premise that it is a partisan issue. It is perhaps the most American of issues, and it should be one that unites us,” Bush writes in the new book’s introduction, noting that he did not want it to come out during the election season. Bush has not endorsed Trump or his presumptive Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.
“My hope is that this book will help focus our collective attention on the positive impacts that immigrants are making on our country.”
I really think this is the message America needs right now from its Republican leadership.
If the landslide election in 2016 proved anything, it proved that Americans really, really love brown immigrants flooding their country.
Really great job, George.
You truly know how to remain faithful to the people who made you president twice in a row, and supported you while you sent so very many of our boys to die in those wars for the Jews.
