Jeb Bush, Mack McLarty, CFR to push immigration "reform" (amnesty)
According to this, Jeb Bush and Mack McLarty (former chief of staff of Bill Clinton) will this week be presenting a report in support of comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty. The report is sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations:
The report urges Congress and the Obama administration to undertake a new effort with three central components: "the creation of a more efficient legal immigration system that responds to labor market needs and enhances U.S. competitiveness; a strong enforcement regime that secures U.S. borders and ends the hiring of unauthorized workers; and a program of earned legalization that will offer an opportunity for many illegal immigrants to earn the right to remain in the United States."
UPDATE: The CFR report is at cfr.org/publication/19556 and it's written up here. Charles Schumer says it mostly tracks his ideas. Obviously, this was a "show" report with a long-foregone conclusion. Of partial interest, the "task force" included Frances Fragos Townsend, Raul Yzaguirre (former president of the National Council of La Raza), Eliseo Medina of the Service Employees International Union, and Margaret Stock (more on her here).
Others involved were: Edward Alden, Mary Boies, Robert Bonner, Allan Goodman, Gordon Hanson, Michael Jordan (software), Don Kerwin, Richard Land (Southern Baptists), Elisa Massimino, , Steve Padilla, Robert Putnam, Andrew Selee, and Kathleen Campbell Walker.
