WASHINGTON- Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush writes in a new book that Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney sealed his own fate by going too far right on immigration. Bush says Romney's stance proved "all but impossible" for him to appeal to Hispanic voters in 2012. Bush writes in "Immigration Wars", many Republicans are "remarkably tone-deaf" when it comes to attracting Latino voters and says if they party doesn't change, the influence of Hispanic voters "will doom" the party's future. Bush contends a path to legal status for undocumented workers should not include citizenship for those who entered the country illegally as adults. He says he supports creating a path to legal status but says tougher border security should not be a prerequisite.
