George W. Bush Says Immigration Reform Flop Was One of ‘Biggest Disappointments’ of His Presidency

Former US President George W. Bush turned the issue of immigration into a major part of his second-term agenda, dubbing the US “a nation of immigrants” that “must uphold that tradition, which has strengthened our country in so many ways”.

In an interview with CBS News, former US President George W. Bush described the failure to pass immigration reform in America as one of the “biggest disappointments” of his presidency. George W. Bush was the 43rd president of the US from 2001 to 2009.

“I campaigned on immigration reform. I made it abundantly clear to voters this is something I intended to do”, he added.

When asked whether he wants to be involved in the immigration discussion, Bush said that he was willing to do so “in a way” and that he doesn’t want “to be prescriptive”.
