Jeb Bush sang a different tune towards immigration than his Republican colleagues. "Yes, they broke the law, but it's not a felony. It's an act of love; it's an act of commitment to your family," Bush told Fox News host Shannon Bream at town hall event at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Center.

Could Bush's more inclusive attitudes work for getting the bid in 2016, or is he alienating himself from his base?
