During his eight years as Florida governor, Jeb Bush increasingly pushed for broader acceptance of immigrants living in the United States illegally, and disagreed with Florida voters and Republican leaders who opposed any expansion of such immigrants' rights, according to more than 350,000 emails received after public document requests.
On border security and deportations, the governor advocated "whatever it takes," but he also supported driver's licenses, in-state tuition and work visas for immigrants in the U.S. illegally.
The emails document Bush's exchanges with supporters, aides and citizens. Personal and political emails were excluded from the release.
