Harry Reid Swipes Jeb Bush On Immigration

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Tuesday took a swipe at Jeb Bush after he came out against a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants in his new book.

“Let’s wait for a few months to see how Jeb Bush changes his mind again,” Reid told reporters. He said Bush is “not evolving, he’s devolving” on immigration. “He keeps going backwards.”

The Democratic leader said the former Florida governor has made “a fool of himself.”

“Frankly, on this issue, I don’t think Jeb Bush is the Florida leader,” Reid said. “I think Marco Rubio is.”
