Bush Writing Book on Immigration

NEW YORK (AP) _ Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is a working on a book about one of the Republican Party’s most contentious issues: immigration.
 Bush has a deal with Threshold Editions, a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster, for “Immigration Wars: Forging An American Solution.”
 Threshold announced Wednesday that the book is scheduled for next spring and will be co-authored by conservative attorney and activist Clint Bolick.

Financial terms aren’t being disclosed.
 According to Threshold, Bush hopes to “bridge the partisan divide” on immigration.
 The 59-year-old ex-governor has been urging his fellow Republicans to take on a more moderate tone, saying hardline policies have led to lost elections.

The son and brother of former presidents, Bush has been widely discussed as a 2016 GOP contender but has disputed having such ambition.
