A Jeb Bush 2016 presidential run is definitely possible for this country. The former Florida governor might be the next Bush in the White House, but Jeb has not made up his mind yet about running for the office. His mother made it clear in previous interviews that she didn't want Jeb Bush to run for office either. On April 6, Time reported that Jeb will decide about a presidential run by the end of 2014. He announced that intention during a speech at an event honoring his father.

His chances at being the next man in the White House was not all Jeb Bush spoke about this weekend. He opened up about his thoughts on illegal immigration as well, and his comments might cause some controversy. Bush said the following about those that come to this country illegally, according to Huffington Post:

The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn't come legally ... and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work, to be able to provide for their family, 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.

These comments do give those voting an idea on his thoughts on illegal immigration. Policy on illegal immigration will play a huge role in the 2016 election. Bush is definitely weighing his options for 2016 run, and he is taking his family into account. Can the Bush family handle another member of the family in office? What do you think? Would you vote for Jeb Bush if he ran?
