Watch Jake Tapper's interview with Jeb Bush today during the 4pm ET hour of "The Situation Room."
(CNN) - Amidst criticisms that he's flip-flopped on a key part of immigration reform, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush acknowledged Tuesday that he's been supportive both of a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and of a lesser measure granting only legal status, saying his position is underscored by a desire to de-incentivize illegal immigration to the United States.
Speaking with Jake Tapper, CNN's chief Washington correspondent and anchor of the upcoming weekday program "The Lead," Bush said that while his new book "Immigration Wars" specifically says immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally should be barred from a pathway to citizenship, he could support such a pathway if it's proposed by lawmakers this year.
