WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush writes in a new book that Mitt Romney moved so far to the right on immigration that it proved “all but impossible” for the Republican presidential nominee to appeal to Hispanic voters in the 2012 election.

Bush writes in his new book, “Immigration Wars,” that many Republicans have been “remarkably tone-deaf” when it comes to attracting Latino voters. He says if the party doesn’t change, the influence of Hispanic voters “will doom” the party’s future.

In the book, Bush says he supports creating a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants who live in the U.S. but says tougher border security should not be a prerequisite. He says a path to legal status should not include citizenship for those who entered illegally as adults.
